Hello again,

I just did Alien station, and there are two issues.

Firstly, the "Solid Metal" tiles are sometimes passable. This affects both the inside of the station and the outside (Outside, I know it affects the column that contains the plasma turrets).

Secondly, the goal of the mission is to retrieve a 'corpse' of the living network's node. Unfortunately the tiny alien brain exploded upon death, making its corpse unrecoverable.


Edit: Another thing I just noticed.
It is possible to shoot down a (non-HK) Battleship with almost no danger to your crafts, so long as one of them can tank one hit.

1. Have the "Shield" plane engage and immediately minimise the interception. The Battleship will get 1 shot in.
2. Engage with other crafts and shoot the battleship down, without maximising the first interception.
The Battleship will not fire on the other crafts.

This is caused by a combination of UFOs not changing targets so long as current target is in range, Battleships having range equal to Standoff (so it can be minimised), and neither UFOs nor your planes being able to fire in a minimised interception.

Both issues unfortunately confirmed. And now probably fixed.

If you know how, I'd suggest adding the STR_ALIEN_BRAIN_CORPSE item to your save.

Interesting, but it's more of an OXCE issue than the mod's... I think.

Probably more a OXC bug, probably you should not be able to minimize window if you are attacking directly engaging UFO

By "engage", I meant enter an interception. The first plane is at Standoff, not actually attacking. But the Battleship has enough range (80) to still target them.

But I agree that a plane being targetted should not be minimisable, even at standoff range.

Not really a bug, but the Night Ops suit doesn't have any camouflage, despite saying so in its description

Sorry if this is already known (I did a quick search and couldn't find anything) but the "Commended!" commendation is unobtainable despite still being in the ufopedia, Its not listed in commendations_XCOMFILES.rul

Oh, boy. You're right, of course. How did I miss this?
Fixed and uploaded to GitHub.

Not true, it's there, under STR_MEDAL_CARREER_SCORE_NAME.

mg-3 and m-60
I found and researched the m-60. Now I can buy m-60 and 7.62 ammo. But I will get information about the damage of this ammo weapon only when I research mg-3
