2. Is the Crossbow supposed to be Beach capable?

Yes! It's for... fishing!

I did some googling and crossbows doesn't seem to work well underwater. The arms of the bow loose most of their strength due to drag.

Of course it is fair to say that the *redacted* goons aren't smart enough to figure that.

Wouldn't a speargun be more thematic?

A speargun is either pneumatic or uses a rubber band. It is less powerful than a crossbow, but more effective underwater.
I think that the big TFTD mod here has one as a starting weapon.

Hello,

Version 0.99c !
It seems that the following lines are missing....
STR_EXPEDITION_SHOGG
STR_EXPEDITION_DIMENSION_X

They are indicated in the mission generator.

A speargun is sort of planned.
The crossbow's aquatic future is uncertain as of now.

Hello,

STR_EXPEDITION_SHOGG
STR_EXPEDITION_DIMENSION_X

Just play the damn game instead of scouring the ruleset for unused items.

I'm not scouring anything, I'm just bringing back something strange!
We drink cold and breathe!
Thank you for your kind remark!

This is not strange at all.
Mission generator is a pure debug tool, not meant for players and can contain tons of these things.

Yeah, sorry but this really felt unfair. If I wanted I could write STR_MAKE_AMERICA_GREAT_AGAIN all over the files, in a way that doesn't come up in the game... And you'd still report it as a bug?
In modern games, there are often unused bits, for example the new X-Com has 4 unused maps (or so I heard). Would you file a report that one of these maps are bugged? That doesn't make sense, does it?
As for why these strings are there at all, it's a part of a planned feature which I will develop at some point. Probably.

I am grateful for all the bug reports, they are invaluable... But please, let's stick to actual in-game bugs.

Ah okay!
When there is an update I test the new version with an automatically generated mission.
Especially since important updates where I took over a new part.
From now on I will take a backup again to quickly test the launch of the game!
Tks !

Flashbangs are listed as space-capable. I’m no chemist, but I recall reading some years ago that upon detonation it first releases a smoll cloud of powderised stuff that is immedieately oxidized by the atmospheric oxygen, producing the flash, then the vacuum created by such now-missing oxygen (now in solid oxid form) is quickly filled by the surrounding air. I’m not sure if it’d work underwater or not, but in vacuum there is no source of oxidation, nor of bang.

It’s a very minor detail, really, I don’t mind it either way. Just wanted to let you know,

If I try getting rid of an XCom rat through the sell screen, it causes a crash.  It only works if I sack them through the agent screen.

Also I noticed that the smart shotgun is concealable, but neither of its ammunitions are.

Thanks. I know about the rat problem, but I still haven't pinned it down. Just enjoy your rodent companion :)

The smart shotgun thing was an omission. Fixed.

When equipping the Aqua-plastic suit I have the option of putting on the underwater version.

The ski resort briefing says "To abort the mission return X-Com operatives to the transport vehicle and click on the 'Abort Mission' icon." But in the new version there's neither a vehicle, nor any exit grid. Outdated text?

This is in my normal game.
