I am on Mac, electric club only has action to throw. Xcom extender apps no functioning?

I have never had any contact with Macs, so you're on your own here, sorry.
It's the first time I am seeing such a report, though.

I know I've made the complaint before with the assault rifle black ops variety, but I'd like to suggest a change.

Raise accuracy of AIMED SHOT to 95, and lower effective AIMED SHOT range to 25 tiles. This way its still accurate to an extent, but has fall offs for more extreme ranges that the blackops rifle obviously excels at.

Some steps were already taken to address this.

It should work... can you upload a save? And a screenshot?

Just a thought but, shouldn't the church of dagon also be based a bit in havana, jamaca, and bremuda? I'd think bremuda would be a hotbed for em considering all the stuff about the Bermuda triangle... I think its a natural place, and the deep ones being responsible for lost people in this region would make a lot of sense, like a lost deep one city.

Maybe? I mean it's possible, I just never gave them any sites beyond Western Europe and Africa.

Any chance we could get regular steel bolts for the dart rifle and pistol? I know they are primarily for stun, but since the arc of underwater is a thing, would make sense to include the vanilla starting gun of TFTD. Plus melee damage would be an interesting change.

I plan to overhaul the darts completely. Maybe then.

The save is clearly not from OXCE+.

You are most likely just using OpenXcom nightly...

My attempts to get this working on OSX have not been as successful as I thought.

Thanks for looking

Questions on transport:
1. Will the type of fighters in the tactical phase match their image in ufopedia? One model for all fighters is not very good. In pirates there are excellent models.
2. Maybe you should take away the possibility of piloting MiG and Arrow. It's not very realistic that they can land on a mission.
3. Will there be transports for cults that can be intercepted?
4. Maybe you should return a restriction on the number of things transported in transport?

"Vintorez" (STR_VSS)  is classified as concealable weapon. Are you sure? It's a sniper rifle.

The game crashed during the bullfrog hunt. I stunned 1 frog and used debug ^D^K to kill the rest. Can't reproduce. Ubuntu, downloaded binary.

Certainly!
But it's the only sniper rifle that's concealable!
Even "STR_SPORTING_RIFLE" is not, it is "STR_SPORTS" only.  ;)
