Yeah, could be an issue with updating between versions. I've overhauled this part not so long ago.
Maybe you have something unusual in your research list, like ammo?

No, I don't have ammo in the research list.

Seen it before, but... I just don't understand what's going on here. There is no node on that tile.

The sheep of BLACK DOOOOOOOM!!!

I am fairly sure that sheep do not wield black holes in their hands.

version is:

Because they don't have hands.

On the other hand, if they didn't wield those black squares they might pick up actual weapons, which would also be a bit immersion breaking.

Shouldn't they be transparent black squares though? Or invisible pink unicorns?

Invisible Pink Unicorns are beings of great spiritual power. We know this because they are capable of being invisible and pink at the same time. Like all religions, the Faith of the Invisible Pink Unicorns is based upon both logic and faith. We have faith that they are pink; we logically know that they are invisible because we can't see them.
— Serah Eley


I know that sheep have some bogus weapon that they cannot use.

EDIT: Shouldn't an empty and transparent picture, like the one attached, work better? (
Attachment made from the "floorob_Statue.png" in XCOMFILES by deleting the figure. It should be compatible unless GIMP decided to do something funky.

TBH I can't remember exactly, but I experimented with invisible squares before and it failed somehow. But I think I got it right this time!

I think that 'Bleat Baa' and 'Bleat Maa' special weapons would fit just fine.

I've encountered a Random event that made me smile — The Gopnik Dream! But is it a typo in the description?

«Red Dawn aggressively promotes their propaganda among the unemployed youth of Kaujuitoq. Many recruits flock to bolster their ranks, tempted by promises of physical and political power for all. The Council insists that this does not bode well».

What is it, this Kaujuitoq place?

Playing 1.15.1, I'm having trouble capturing an Ancient Mummy Matriarch. I can take them alive in battle and they appear in the loot, but when I transfer them to my research base they die because there are "no suitable facilities". I have a prison and an alien containment, and as far as I can see from the resource files the prison should be fine. Is this something fixed in 1.16, or am I missing something obvious?
