Hi People, I have FMP 3.2 (FMP=Finap Mod Pack) with OXCE 6.6.1. (this is the stablest version for me, tried 7.8, but results in crash...) My question is: WHAT EXACTLY are commendations/promotions good for? E.g. Purple Heart, Black Cross... The UFOpedia shows me when my soldiers earn these but it shows NOT what they actually GET after these. In a prev. version of X-Com Files, when I played in 2020, I think the soldiers also received some stat bonuses / boni :)  Is it the same in FMP, but I have to dig... maybe deeper into UFOpedia? Could You pls help me? Many thanks in advance. Happy New Year! :)

I have not touched FMP in ages, but as far as I recall, the original(ish) commendations either did nothing or gave tiny amounts of bravery. Not seeing any soldier bonuses in FMP or FMPE, either. So, probably nothing.

If so, then basically all the commendations are is the glamorous part of your soldiers' record. With soldier diaries, there's a giant amount of information stored for each soldier, which you can see and reminisce about. Find your deadliest Muton killer, best sharpshooter, the guy with 300 missions in Antarctica, etc. Not that any of this protects these celebrity grunts from eating hot flaming plasma next mission. :P

X-Com Files, Piratez and probably a few others indeed give you stat bonuses for getting commendations. Quite a lot, too.

Also, isn't FMP on 3.3 now? And if OXCE crashes on you, the better course of action is to report it in the OXCE subforum, because at least for FMPE, nothing guarantees 6.6 will even remain compatible with future versions of the mod.

I believe you are correct. Stats topped out at like 80TU's (could be boosted to 100 w/Muton armor). And firing maxed at like 120 I believe. But with StormTrooper armor could be brought to 140.
If you were lucky, a soldier might max out a point higher to round off the integer  :P

It's not rounding, secondary stat gains converge to 0-2 per improvement. That one extra point is the 2.

OXCE 6.6.1 is ancient; more than 2 years old. I take no responsibility for anything. :P
