Meridian, I would like to return to the issue of the counter of stunned enemies. Now when "soldierDiaries: false" the stats button disappears and space is made for the stun counter.

added

there is not enough space, but I leave that problem to you

How can you increase the landscape of the battlefield to 70x60
(80×60) withh the help of scripts, if the craft of the player is 20x20 (30x30)?

You can specify battlefield width and length in the alien deployment, attributes `width` and `length`: https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php/Ruleset_Reference_Nightly_(OpenXcom)#Alien_Deployments

It seems to me that there is some mistake here. I can only control the first soldier.

Many thanks for both the advice and the transport deployment scheme. This is what is really needed.

If you save the layout of the soldiers in the transport, then change the order of the soldiers in the list, and then again return to the layout of the soldiers in the transport, then the game crashes.

Hi, any code syntax or reference to use a different custom map?

Hi, any code syntax or reference to use a different custom map?

yes, it will be in the FIXME links after I write them :)

for now, here's the test sample I used during development... it's for the 40k mod:

Code: [Select]
alienDeployments:
  - type: STR_CRAFT_DEPLOYMENT_PREVIEW
    music:
      - HANGAR
    briefing:
      title: STR_HANGAR_TITLE
      palette: 4
      desc: STR_HANGAR_DESCRIPTION
      music: HANGAR
      showCraft: true
      showTarget: false
      background: BACK16.SCR
    shade: 1
    terrains:
      - XHANGAR
    script: XHANGAR
    width: 30
    length: 20
    height: 6

or if you just meant a different deployment for a particular craft, it's the "customPreview" attribute: https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php/Ruleset_Reference_Nightly_(OpenXcom)#Crafts

Code: [Select]
crafts:
  - type: STR_AVENGER
    customPreview: STR_MY_STUFF

For Base Facilities preview, any thoughts on expanding this into missions can be launch from the Base itself? E.g Invisible Alien Infiltration and you have to sniff them out?

Idea. If someone asks for more space.
