I have discovered a bug in 5.1 version, that is not listed as fixed in this list. Yesterday I discovered it on Android and today I confirmed it on Windows version.

Effect: Using special abilities by any unit.

Required: A unit with a special ability that has a menu (X-COM Files "Attack Dog", XPirates "Bug"), any other unit.
How to replicate: Select the psionic unit. Move the map so, that the special ability icon is over the unit you want to use it.
                 Click the special ability icon. The menu for using the ability appears and the unit under the icon is selected.
                 Use one of the abilities from the menu. The newly selected unit uses it with all that means. (The selected unit is pays the
                 cost of the ability with correct percentages, the selecteded unit's stats are used and trained.)

                 It only happens with abilities that drop menus. If the ability does not have a menu, such as with  X-COM Files "Hybrid", the unit below the icon is not selected.

Confirmed, it's any weapon that uses the 'special weapon' code, separate from the vanilla 'psi button' reserved for being able to use Psi Panic with mind controlled aliens - the action of clicking on the button continues on to whatever is below the button when you cancel the menu. You can see this if you click on the button not on a unit, it'll bring up the movement preview if you have that option on, or start moving the unit if you don't have it on. I'm testing a fix right now.

Any news on that fix? or does this not affect vanilla MC/Psi?

Thank you for a great unified mod!
I always read every change list with interest.
Everything is invented very cool and convenient.
The only thing ... I would like to have a smarter AI ... ... but this is probably impossible in principle.

Fix is now available (PC version only for now).
The bug doesn't affect vanilla MC/Psi.

Alright awesome. I grabbed it, I was testing a tank with a special weapon, so this will be good.

@OXCE Moderators, along Global OXC Forum Moderators (That means you Meridian and Yankes)
Before i play the new 2018-12-22 version of OXCE in the morning, either 8:00 AM or 9:00 AM or 10:00 AM as a good example reason only just to take a break from reading the OXC forums.
Does it have bugs i might encounter as far as i want to play my OXC/OXCE game again? ???

I think my too-hyped mood really need some time on playing 90s XCOM UFO94 as i should say at some point sooner or later i suppose. I'll be waiting longer enough after eating rice.

Not that, i'm just wanting to try the 2018-12-22 version out at 10:00 AM just to be its schedule for later, meaning i got 3-4 hours til 10:00 AM.
That's all, no offenses really. :-[

EDIT (SET AS REMINDER!!! :o):
Uh, Houston. We got a big a$$ problem.
The geoscape radar systems in OXCE has a bug, but never been fixed. Take a look at the image i've did using snipping tool app instead of F12.

See, messed up radar bug in OXCE.
That bothers me with the older OXCE version i'm playing instead of the newer version.
What a bad relief.  :-[

Is any option to disable hunter alien UFOs who randomly attack and destroy my transport and scout ships in Area 51 mod? Last time my Skyranger was killed when I returned from successful mission. I like this project because of a lot little great features in compere with original openxcom, but those hunter UFO's completely annoys me.

OXCE only adds support for hunter-killers, it doesn't enable them automatically.

The hunter-killers were intentionally added into the mod by the modder, not by the devs.

If you don't agree with that, you can turn them off by editing the mod's ruleset files, in this case:
1/ alienMissions_Area_51.rul file... search for all occurrences of hunterKillerPercentage and change the numbers after that attribute to 0
2/alienDeployments_Area_51.rul file... search for all occurrences of baseDetectionRange and change the numbers after that attribute to 0

It's not a bug, it's a feature.
And it comes from OXC, not from OXCE.

Today I discovered a bug (not sure) - if you escorting you transport ship on the mission and get attacked by alien hunter UFO, both aircrafts lose their destination after successful dog  fight and turning back to their base, so you need point you Skyranger again on mission objective at the map and re-escort it with you Interceptor.

Hey Meridian, how about returning to base not only soldiers from destroyed Skyranger but their equipment too, at least what they're carrying on themselves? It's kinda unfair what they're evacuates but drop their staff. Just suggestion anyway.
P.S.
Started another new game (yes I'm stubborn as a mule :) ), and Skyranger was destroyed when it returning back from Abandoned factory mission. It had escort, but it won't help - encountered very large, my Avalanche did nothing to it. Aliens killed transport but when run away from Interceptor. Very strange behavior. So harsh. But I like this is challenge and no longer cries ;)
