Transferred corpses not shows as amount of available for dissection. I just transferred aquatoids corpses after finished mission to base "1". I can recycle  them via menu, but amount not shows correctly. I'm not sure what this is bug. Here screenshot and save file:

As a replacement for the 'allowedItems' you could use the 'ignoreInBaseDefense' flag.
I don't think there is any workaround for 'allowedVehicles', I can add something if it's bothering someone too much.
So, adding this flag to HWP item description will remove it from base defense mission? Great.

No, I explicitly said it will work correctly only for items, not for vehicles.

Edit: I'll see if I can make it work...

Can't remove pilot from Barracuda-1 using "Remove all pilots" button. It's working with Triton but refuse on interceptor.
P.S.
I removed it manually using assign crew menu, transferred empty to 2nd base and now "Add pilots" buttons shows zero available  people too.

People are added/removed from the craft only using Crew menu, not Pilots menu.

In Pilots menu you can only assign Crew as Pilots. If there are exactly enough Crew members on the ship as necessary Pilots, game will auto-assign them automatically.

For example, if you would have only 2 soldiers in your Triton, it would also auto-assign them and you could not deassign them, same as on Barracuda.

Message about MC aquanauts - currently it's popped up when finished research MC Lab. But they're not present in workshop before lab is build completely, and, as you said before, need live mind worm to start production. All those factors confuse now. Can we have that pop up message when all requirements  reached and production is really possible?
P.S.
Failed on easy 2 negative score in row. Seems a lot of hidden activities around word. I should build more bases next time for detection.

Mindworms are not needed to build mc-lab. And description says that you need mc-lab to create these special units.

Yes. Sadly, i can not do anything. For some reason, starting conditions do not work for base defense.
Well, shrimp drones are quite useful on base defense. I wonder why there is no flying drones in the game besides squid drone.
In modern world flying drone is not something rare and the events in TWoTS take place in future.

Uhm...
Okay. I'll do it.
Armed or scout?

Scout drone with ability to carry cargoes is useful not only for scouting but also as a way to deliver bombs. I'd prefer that thing.

How to not get negative score every month? Even I'm doing all missions I'm getting negative score and consistently losing the game. I don't understand why it happens if I have no USOs detected. Beginner difficulty hardest than superhuman. Something wrong with balance and score calculations.

Do research. Do missions.

Even I'm doing all missions I'm getting negative score and consistently losing the game.

I don't think you do all missions.
The last save you uploaded had only 2 bases in October... you should have 8 bases in October, actually even earlier than that.

I don't understand why it happens if I have no USOs detected.

No USOs detected because you don't have enough bases for detection.

Beginner difficulty hardest than superhuman. Something wrong with balance and score calculations.

Nope, everything seems fine to me, attached my monthly scores playing on Veteran.

Not all pro players like you, may be you prefer play with 8 bases, but I'm not. A lot of bases require a lot of soldiers to protect them. And consider crappy weapons at beginning it's big chance to lose them. Vanilla could be finished with one base only. Seems game gives negative score for hidden undetected USOs, but I'm not sure.

I wonder how the game counters shot down USOs. Do I get positive score if I shot down USO but refuse to kill the rest of the alien team or no? May be it makes sense to add an option to destroy the shot down USO from your craft using a deep water bomb for some score? It can be sensible when USOs arrive in packs every week.
