Heh... You're right, but I tested it before... Worked just fine.

*sigh* Back to the drawing board, then...

Well, I don't know if that's normal but looking at the manufacture screen I found some more missing strings:

STR_OLD_XCOM_DATA_REEL_DECRYPTION     
STR_CULT_CONTAINED
STR_BLOOD_PLASMA_EXTRACTION_MEGAZOMBIE_LIVING
STR_BLACKOPS_MAGNUM_BUY
STR_CANISTER_GUN_AMMO 
STR_AQUA_PLASTICS_PREQ1
STR_AQUA_PLASTICS_PREQ2
STR_TOUGH_CREATURE_AUTOPSY
STR_BRAINER_CRACKED
STR_ADVANCED_FIREARMS_DEP1

And some typos:

You know, the staff input of "point of perspective" seems inconsistient. It speaks of grenades, but it happens usually before any promotions, so it makes me ask where the hell such a guy got a grenade.

I get its an attempt to mix lore with helpful tips, but it really doesn't make any sense.  Besides, quartermaster wouldn't really be involved in interrogations would he?

I might propose an alternative however

"Hey commander, we had a.. ...small issue in the storage area. One of the men decided he would try to be slick, try throwing his gear into the designated storage shelves, but it ended up hitting a fire suppression sprinkler nozzle in the ceiling, breaking it open and drenching the storage area. Nothing important was damaged but I gave him a good ass chewing for not relying on forklifts for putting things on the right shelf, nor following standard procedure for processing all returning items, but I had an interesting thought : Throwing items, be them flares, clips, grenades, can often clip things along its path. So be careful about this, theres nothing worse than a grenade clipping a wall when you wanted to throw it past it, then getting a face full of shrapnel!"

I think the spiders left and right facing sprites are swapped. Screencap wouldn't capture the direction arrows, so I drew them by hand.

Hmmm... I think you're right.

Lol, I always thought they're somehow weird.

Taking on mutant spiders with a baseball bat?... I never would of considered that....

...I think the same issue may apply to the small white yeti things (forget their name) in that their walking diagonal animation looks really jerky and un-natural

I guess you mean Mongorns. Yep, Mongorns, spiders and Shamblers are looking glitchy sometimes.

Yeah, I've always wondered why they looked they were having a seizure.

Well, the Mongorns I  just thought were into disco.

The QBU-88 can be purchased with just STR_QBU_88. Should be STR_QBU_88_BUY.

Typical Solar copypasta error (tm).
See attached.

(-2 should be -325)

Can happen, but I'm not fixing this, since I don't want a map composed of identical crosses. Try using explosives.

The QBU-88 can be purchased with just STR_QBU_88. Should be STR_QBU_88_BUY.

Thanks, I'll check.

Thanks.

BTW do you think I'm particularly sloppy? I never thought so, it could be right. What can I do to improve it? (Apart from taking more time to review the code, it won't happen - can't take away more time from actual modding and stay in business).

No, it was just a joke ;)

Number of mistakes is proportional to content size... and you have a lot of content, so it's easier to spot/remember yours.

OK, so I was hoping  :) I just hate being wrong.  :P

Again, thanks.
