Stunned on first stage with Dart gun Deepone counter as dead when second stage of shipping cruise ship begins. What the hell? Should I keep him in back pack? I just aborted game as soon as I clean first stage and live Deepone is gone. He was not overstunned, I mean he had "zzz" not snowflake mark. I don't know will this save file helps or not, but I'm attaching it:
Discussed allready, two reasons found. 1 - bug, was fixed. 2 - vanilla behavior, can not change.
Btw, why hook have strength damage bonus but naga trident does not have this bonus too?
Because you cant cut with trident.

I also captured Tasoth guardian and Naga honor guard too but they seem not offer anything special, I could not even research Tasoth guardian corpse (which consider as different item from tasoth corpse), is it intentional?
It is normal.

Seems so. I managed clean up second stage and capture another Deepone there. Result screen shows now two live Deepones. Apologizes for false calling.

I have request: ability to disassemble any x-com armor when no needed. Currently the mod allow recycle paladins armors or repair it. But recycle aqua plastic armor (and broken as well) for aqua plastic would be great too, so trained guys can later use exosuit instead. Same for other later armors, except may be bionics according mod's usopeadia description. Any thoughts?

Thanks for reply, Nord.

Why laser pistol could not be bought even after research? it is one of a few (if not only) man-made weapons which could not be bought after research.

I think there should be some rewards for research rare captured enemy like Tasoth guardians leader and Naga honor guards too.

Hi,

I just got access to one of the new subs the 'Typhon' is that a typo? should it by 'Typhoon' or is it genuinely named after the Greek God Typhon. Just wondering.

As it written on a previous page, this is new OXCE version issue. Maybe will be fixed in update.

And Triton and Poseidon do not bother you?
Thanks for reply, Nord.

Because it is almost completely useless.

Laser pistol is even more useless than revolver (which could purchase)?

If Tasoth guardian only appear on that dungeon battle, maybe capture its leader should spoil us about upcoming Freak. For about other other rewards, let's me explore this mod more as my research progress is now only 45% but if I have to answer you now, I think it should random spilling about how to use aliens items that not yet researched (but not how to manufacture it) or unlock some more lore detail.

Let me argue with you. The damage is low but it has more accuracy than Dart gun, cost less TU to use and still has useful half armor effectiveness piercing which sometimes very useful against even strong armored enemies. At least could be used for scouting purposes with heavy armored aquanaut if player not got Gauss yet because no luck capturing Navigator or has no any melee drills.

How long time wait until infinite bombing cycle with invisible USO will be fixed? Another loss because aliens keep bombing same base. If they target main base you lose it as I mentioned before. Rebuilding structures is useless because they keep attacking.

You still dont provide save of "infinite cycle".
Also, bombers can be shot down by base defenses. Easier than assault ships.

Bomb should end once you build any kind of base defense (torpedo defense also working fine against suicide bomber).

@Nord, why advanced Medi-kit has only 5 unit of pain-killer? and how it is more potent than normal medi-kit?

Hello. My first post here, I've registered on this forum promted with a crash screen, so let's get this over with:

The crash ends with a screen "Alien Deployment STR_HOR2 not found.", happens when landing a Triton after downing an extra large alien ship which looked like a dragon head (gave me a micro heart attack, 10/10 would see again). I have a savefile right before sending Triton but from what I see on this and previous page this is a known issue and even has a hotfix, correct?

I want to thank for TWoTS. It's the reason I've installed OpenXCom and I'm having a blast. The author managed to increase difficulty and complexity but in a very smart and challenging way. I love fixing the biggest flaw of TFTD, i.e. a very binary tech tree.

It restores more per use.

Hi, welcome! Sorry for replying instead of author, but Nord already explained few post above. This is OXCE bug what will be fixed in new release. It happens because this kind of ship should explode and never get sinked. In simple words - there is no such mission exist in this mod. That's why game crashing trying execute thing what doesn't present.
