Did a landed MIB bomber coverup mission and one MIB Heavy Trooper just came out with literally no weapon, when one of my guys managed to KO him I noticed he had UAC Chaingun ammo, but no actual chaingun

Why exactly is the bank that the robot ninjas are robbing flying the Jolly Roger flags? Are they a pirate bank?

This is obviously not gamebreaking, but I do find it a bit weird.

Solarius, the randomized base names that you picked can result in names that are over the character length limit. This is apparently not intended, as it can interfer with other parts of the UI.

Is it not well known that ninjas and pirates are mortal enemies?   Why wouldn't ninjas rob a pirate bank?

Checks out, also neatly ties in with XPiratez.

I just managed to get to the vampire castle, I always skip this mission and figured I'd actually try to do it, it took me 40 turns to find this little guy just stuck in there, I had to shoot the stairs off, there was no other way in and it was nearly impossible to know he was there without the bug hunt radar

Yeah, my bad. Fixed...

It can happen. I'm not going to reduce the name base to one syllable words, it'll just suck universally. I'd rather count on the player to just correct any issues manually.

My attempts to edit this flag failed, so I postponed it indefinitely. :P

I'll check, thanks.

Would you have a save?

It is possible to go on a faraway mission in a van, get an agent lightly injured, and then have this agent recover and assign to another craft before the original van is even back. I did not test, but I suspect that it should be possible to have all agents on a mission injured and then have a craft going back to base without a pilot.

This strikes me like an OXCE issue and not related to XCF. Would you mind reporting this in the OXCE-subforum as well?

These are the ones before the bug hunt kicks in, but I already had my sectopod walker near it in one of them, hope it helps

(Last one, I promise lol) bigger monsters (I've seen shamblers and bullfrogs so far) tend to spawn in one of these rooms and are unable to get out, you can fire at them from the windows and they can't attack back (well the bullfrog can, but it didn't try to), they're pretty much helpless, it's not game breaking or anything but I'm guessing its not intended for them to get stuck

It is, actually, as there are no separate enemy spawns for "big" and "small" units. The only way to avoid this would be to have no enemy spawns inside of buildings - which would kind of defeat the purpose.

Agent Ben walked it off on the road during pee breaks.

Thanks, reported it to the terrain author. We'll see.

Poorly defined node. Thanks for reporting.

Well that's just pure bullshit. Of course there is such a way, how else would this game even work with buldings???
