I've chosen in Ufoextender the option Psionic Line of Fire. Still, there are units, like octs, who can affect the minds of x-com operatives through the walls of the tower of lvl 2 artifact missions. They don't see me. There are also units, looking like a cloud, that can attack mentally operatives through the walls of Triton even even they did not see them after 1 st turn. How can they attack operatives if the last ones even did not go out from the Triton ship for a second.
Thank for attention.

The standard Psionic Line of Fire mod works only for vanilla game (or better said only for vanilla weapons and equipment).
Mods have to create their own versions.

This does not help here. I have a mod where all the psi weapons should be line of fire (well, unless my perl script did miss one), see below, but at least the oct still can attack without line of sight. But it is always nearby, may be some little hole at the edge of a room or elevator tile or something.

Or is it a problem with intelligence, if they have spotted the troopers once?

Well, when the AI starts cheating, I cheat back and hit my I-win-button...  ;)

Maybe a reason is their psionic vision?
These aliens actually have line of sight (not line of fire). Because they can see through walls.

I arrive to terror site. Push the button Next turn and all teammates go sleeping just inside Triton. Great. It was not possible to fight them at all. Only coelacanth jet helped a little but the robot has limited ammo and it cannot carry items.

Could one explain why during tasoth raids to your base a couple of armed dinosaurs appear not in airlock or subpens but among your operatives?

Maybe a wrong map routes. Provide save file for detail analysis.

I may be wrong but barge mission crashes on start if an operative has equipped mc. reader. What's the name of the scouting alien ship with very wide radar circle that often attack x-com subs?

Here is the quickfix. Replace this file. Path: "/TWoTS/Routes"

I may be wrong but barge mission crashes on start if an operative has equipped mc. reader.
Can not reproduce. Maybe a savefile?

Sorry, but do you have forgotten to paste the file to replace here, Nord?

1. One can recycle palandin's broken armor for aqua plastics but cannot recycle broken exosuits and plastic armor of operatives. Contradiction. 2. How to execute live aliens from alien containment facility? They don't die once I release them from facility and stay in storage. I can sell them but not execute.

1. Barge mission crashed on start again. Once I reloaded the mission started. 2. In my opinion the sonic weapons become available for research almost the same time with gauss weapons. I've already met lobsterman in small UFO and had to use thermal shock launcher to deal with him. Gauss weapons are marginal against lobstermen and tasoths and possibly enchanced aquatoids and gillmen. I found myself using mainly gas cannon with HE ammo despite the barbaric destruction of precious loot.

I really love your mod.

Could it be possible (in future) to let alien specialists look different from the soldiers? In Piratez every rank has its own appearance.
