Another mission, guys who used gas cannons and keeps them in hands all battle got throwing experience too. It' may be "feature" of projectile weapons, because rounds using parabola trajectory what count as throwing?

Yes, it's described here: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,4230.0.html

Is anyway lock difficulty of mod using rule set files? Like example, when player start the game he has no option but one difficulty only and Ironman set on and can not be changed (buttons grey out).

You can change difficulty coefficients so that all difficulties are the same... like for example in the 40k mod.

Ironman cannot be fixed.

Promotion question. I've set "only soldiers who were on battlefield promotion" on, but often when I land and just abort the mission people get promoted which unfair. Is any way prevent this or may be in future release OXCE engine will promoted people who only get experience? This last one is my suggestion of course if its possible to make.

yeah, we could rename it from "only soldiers who were on battlefield promotion" to "only soldiers who were on battlefield and got some experience promotion"

- Option to choose preferred hand for reactions (right-click on the hand in the battlescape HUD); indicator is moddable via sprite called "reactionIndicator" (same size as bigobs)

Just noticed this. I LOVE IT! Million thanks for the continued OXCE goodies.

Oh, I found it but I thought what this yellow dot is disable you weapon. I read wiki what says what game prefer right hand for reaction. Glad what this feature exists now.

Gentlemen, apologies for asking this again,  but this "accuracy" number what shows when you aiming with soldier (aquanaut) totally confuse me now. On sniper rifles it could be more than 100% which literally illogical, but even with this, for example 120%, my aquanauts missing what makes me angry. How exactly aiming working and what this numbers represents? Dose OXCE calculate this number and firing accuracy in soldiers (aquanauts) stats and make real % chance of hit which hidden? If I'm right, I have request make new option for future OXCE releases what will show real fully calculated number same for shooting and throwing. That will be great, it it's possible due to game engine and limitations.

it's just 120, not 120%... forget the %

openxcom doesn't calculate any chance to hit for ranged weapon, that concept doesn't exist

I just had a civilian steal an alien artifact during a mission - said artifact wasn't recovered during debriefing. Would it be possible to recover weapons picked up by civilans at the end of a mission?

they already nicely return xcom stuff
they don't return alien stuff... they can steal it just as you can... implemented according to requirements

I've just discussed it with Dioxine. The conclusions were as follows:
- In XCF, it's fine as it is. Alien tech gets stolen, pops out somewhere later - the usual. The drawback is that it incentivizes stunning civilians, which is cringy, but I can live with it.
- In Piratez, all civilians (or most) will be recovered as some items (basically "thank you for saving me" letter or something like that), and therefore you will get their stuff. The drawback is that you'll get all civilians' weapons, but these are usually very simple and inexpensive, so whatever.

civilians don't pick up items in piratez

and I didn't understand that part with "getting their stuff"... how are you gonna get that without killing/stunning them?
