Well that's just pure bullshit. Of course there is such a way, how else would this game even work with buldings???
My bad, I mixed up patrol&spawn definitions. I was under the impression the way to do this was via rank.

That too, but there's also a size distinction (small vs. all).

Which is listed (at least in my version of mapview) under 'Patrol data', not under 'Spawn data' :P

Again, my bad. I should have given it more thought than I did.

On some maps ground objects are not removed and drawn on top of UFO tiles:



Is this a map or an engine-related issue?

Spawning also respects this.

Apparently, as it turns out.

Yeah, but I guess it would be fixable by deleting/replacing the ground objects? Or is there another way?

I think I can fix this, but it's Bullet's terrain, and I really don't want to maintain my own for of it... Would require modifying both the terrains and maps, and I don't want to create such a rift between mods. Unless maybe I can arrange something with Bullet.

Figures, thanks for teh heads-up.

On another note, I take it the ground-tiles on hte upper level of this UFO are supposed to be one-way transparent/shoot-through?

Hm, no... I don't even think it's possible to do. I guess it's just the normal lift shenanigans.

The angles I am getting shot at from are extremely strange. But yeah, looking at this again it is probably down to the elevators and the room layout  :P

Are the ramps during one of the UAC missions meant to be climbable? am I mistaking them for ramps? you cannot walk over them and the only way I could actually get to the last enemies was using 2 blaster launchers so I could go through the floor above

lastly the message you get from the UAC cuts off, I tried changing to several different resolutions but it still cuts off at the same part

Yes, they are ramps and should be climbable; I just messed up the map geometry. Thanks for the notification.

Thanks as well, I fiddled with the text and it fits now.

Another case of melee enemies stuck behind impassable terrain (would be nice if they could chew through the trees but that sounds like a pain to implement properly) lower corner, I've had it happen with zombies as well
this was a Civilians vs Monsters mission

Alien bases spawned during infiltration mission are labeled 'STR_ALIEN_BIG_BASE_ASSAULT' - they are missing entries in the language files.

Vanilla maps.

Alien bases spawned during infiltration mission are labeled 'STR_ALIEN_BIG_BASE_ASSAULT' - they are missing entries in the language files.

There is a string, line 1006:

Code: [Select]
  STR_ALIEN_BIG_BASE_ASSAULT: "ALIEN COLONY ASSAULT"
Probably an outdated version?
