Small bug I find - if doing an HQ early the message from the cult doesn't seem to appear on time. Did dagon HQ on  november 97 but got the final message (for cult assault) on feb 98


Impossible.

Code: [Select]
eventScripts:
  - type: STR_CHURCH_OF_DAGON_AFTER_HQ_EVENT
    oneTimeRandomEvents:
      STR_CHURCH_OF_DAGON_AFTER_HQ_EVENT: 100
    executionOdds: 100 <------ 100% chance to happen
    researchTriggers:
       STR_CHURCH_OF_DAGON_HQ: true <------ needs Dagon HQ research (not actually beating their HQ)

It will run the next month after you research Church of Dagon HQ, but not four months later. Just no way.

Code: [Select]

Save is attatched to my original post, apologies for the late reply.

Thank you!

I still have nothing, though. :( At this point I suspect gremlins.

Maybe has to do with researching HQ in 97?

Also regarding the ghost storyline, cultist seem to have localisation missing and spawn the Katapeltes without any ammo.

Also, I wonder what is up with the Glock 18 - aimed shots do not seem to have a higher acc as compared to snap shots.

Had some situations where this was relevant.

Not under 16 tiles, but the ranges are different. Although not that different (snap 15, aimed 20). No idea why aiming a handgun brings so little benefit.

What do you mean? Why would 97 be significant? The script I pasted doesn't do anything like that with time.

Also regarding the ghost storyline, cultist seem to have localisation missing and spawn the Katapeltes without any ammo.

Yes, true in both cases. :(

Many thanks, fixed.

Are you sure that is what you meant?

Yeah, their Reactions are abysmal. Zombie powers have their price.
I can't remember the entire formula right now, but their max Reactions should be effectively 35 lower than a normal human's.

Right - accurate range.

While that may be intended to work that way, in practice a maxed agent loses only up to ~10 reactions depending on how much they started with, and new agents lose nothing.

Which means you want to delay the transformation until your stats are maxed because otherwise you get a permanent but avoidable stat reduction.

Hello. I would like to ask what is approx spawn time for Ethereals.
I'm currently september 2002 year. Few last months nothing serious happens, sometimes I get aliens fly-by ships.
And destroyed Sindicate about 3-4 months ago with their final message(from ethereals?)
So what now?

ps. great mod.

Why are you asking this in the bug reports thread? Or is the lack of Ethereals in bad taste to you? :P

The main topic is about as active and more, well, topical.

I mean, I don't care, personally. But unlike me, you're not on Solarius's ignore list, and he has a thing about merging double posts and moving off-topic stuff.

Sadly not. There is a long way not connected to any path. Under the bridge and to the right.

OK, I'll keep an eye on this. Thank you anyway.
