[Question] [Solved] Meaning of "genMissionLimit"
« on: August 03, 2018, 12:32:11 am »
The question arose of selecting "genMissionLimit:". This parameter specifies the limit of simultaneous "genMission:" or is it the maximum number of missions available for generation and if the limit is reached, then the missions are never generated again? If the latter, is it possible to remove the  limitation?

It's a limit for total number of supply missions spawned for one particular base.

It is possible to remove the limitation by setting it to high enough number... for example 1000 (which is also its default value).

A value greater than 1000 are supported? Not that it was a practical necessity, but to create the illusion of limitlessness, it would be useful.

Just there is a base of aliens the tenth month and feeds X-COM Elerium 115. And suddenly the base ceases to generate the mission supply and only hurts the missions of Retaliation. Mega bummer!

Yes, all the way to 32-bit signed integer limit.

By game standards, it is really infinity.  :)  Understood. Thank you.
