Syndicate CEO
« on: June 20, 2017, 04:40:14 pm »
Just a quick question - what are the prerequisites for this mission? I seem to get data seizure and lab missions by the dozens, but never got the CEO arrest. Am i missing something?

You need a research called "Syndicate Summary Report". It requires the following research:

Spoiler:
  • Council Commissioner
  • Data Reel Decryption

You also need to finish a mission:

Spoiler:
  • Syndicate Reactor Raid

Thanks for the quick reply. I seem to have run into a strange bug where only civilians are spawned during council defense missions. I never an into a council member in the first place. Do you want me to upload the save file?

EDIT: just realized this might have been due to me using debug mode. Fixed it by adding the council member to my storage.

Debug shouldn't do that. Council member is specifically coded to always spawn, using Meridian's special code:

Code: [Select]
    civiliansByType:
     [b] STR_COUNCIL_MEMBER: 1[/b]
      STR_MALE_ELITE_SOLDIER: 6
      MALE_CIVILIAN3: 2
      STR_MALE_VIP: 3
      FEMALE_CIVILIAN2: 2
      FEMALE_CIVILIAN3: 3
      STR_MALE_CIVILIAN_BLACK: 2
      STR_MALE_CIVILIAN_BODYGUARD: 8
      STR_MALE_DOCTOR: 1

Can someone confirm?

Like i said, i have no idea why only civilians (unarmed, no bodyguards) spawn. The first mission was normal as far as i can tell, but i used debug mode to finish it and never recovered the council member.

Okay, I get it now... It was a bug. Or more precisely, a misunderstanding - I thought it's settable by terrain (like normal civilians), but it's actually by deployment.
It works now... Hotfix attached.
