Safehouses are always safehouses. Bigger variants are called "outposts" and "bases" respectively.

If you've seen otherwise, then it would be a bug, but this element of the mod is so old and tested that I doubt there is a problem... Still, if that's the case, please post a save.

My savegames are gone?

What did I make wrong here?

then it was probably a base, my mistake.
In other news though, a red dawn base actually had me take cover and flank instead of just staying open and fire for the first time... maybe they finally learned something ^^
(its the combination of landing point and their grenade use. the long range firearms don't really do much it seems)
EDIT: to clarify, they do a lot better with MGs and sniper rifles than with short range weapons. But those don't change the situation the slightest...

Check the instructions I posted specifically about this change on this thread.

TL;DR: your saves aren't gone, you just need to move them to a different folder (from "xcom1" to "x-com-files", in the same place).

Thanks, I'm trying :]

I have a rat that cannot attack vertically...
says noone there, but there is.
Could it be because 0 energy? (though no energy cost is stated, and it does not say "not enough energy")

EDIT: apparently reloading that save fixed it. weird thing, but OK...

Stuff like that with all kinds of melee attacks has happened to me so often, that I've simply come to accept it instead of thinking to submit it as a bug. Reloading never helped with it either.

Very short units sometimes have such issues with diagonal attacks.
Also, make sure there is no tall grass in the way, as it's still a physical barrier.

In the map "Undersea city", a unit walks thru the wall. See screenshot.

Is it intended for all concussive weapons to deal 50%-150% damage instead of 0%-200%?  I understand why explosive weapons that deal concussive damage should have a more controlled damage range, but found it strange that sonic weapons and other miscellaneous weapons, like the shogg hammer, all deal 50%-150% damage. 

I saw these damage ranges by holding alt over items in the equipment menu, so the issue might be in that system only.

Yes, this C.W. have 50-150%. It is not a bug.

v1.2, research with tritanium ammo...
Researched tritanium ammo, can now research HMG, shotgun/bs, smart shotgun, magnum .44 tritanium ammo, the rest requires item first to be researched.
Thats a lot of items... and they´re not really that common...

Yes, intended of course. Sonic waves aren't bullets.

Your point being? What is the bug?

well that research dependency on the item was a bug before, so i assumed its regression.

so now even though i can produce like a dozen different tritanium bullets, for every other weapon i wanna make tritanium ammo for i gotta find someone else using it first?
HMG yes, but not minigun. Magnum yes, but most other pistols not. etc etc.
that is... not nice.
And kinda completely blocks me from using tritanium ammo at all for the weapons I´m using. unless at some point in undefined future i happen to find someone using that weapon, with alloy ammo.
well... (with all due respect... >_>) if thats not a bug, it is covered at least by "bad taste".
...why? its... horrible...  >:( and does not seem to make sense at all.
