Center on Enemy X red rectangle doesn't remain red after switching to new unit in

because the new unit doesn't see enemy X... so no red rectangle

Is there an INI variable that can switch this function back as it was originally?

it works as it worked originally, since 2015, in OXCE

(in OG and OXC, the red rectangle just disappears... as they don't have any green rectangles)

It's a useful feature, this way you can choose whether to save everything or just the filtered stuff.

Ah, okay, got it. I never want to do this, but that's okay. I just need to be careful to always turn the filter off first.

Well, here it is again ... only everything was fine, and suddenly everyone died. The worst thing is that looking at this LOG I can not understand what exactly to edit. There are no such values in my modification.

The indexes in the log are the internal ones from the game.

In the ruleset, they will be smaller by 1000 (or whatever mod offset is at the time).

I'll check later today too.

Wrong bigsprite:

Code: [Select]
items:
  - type: STR_CORPSE_PLASTIC_ARMOR
    bigSprite: 0           # before was 9343

Wrong handsprite:

Code: [Select]
items:
  - type: CALCINITE_WEAPON #melee attack
    handSprite: 0       # before was 9104

Wrong unit response sounds (449):

Code: [Select]
armors:
  - type: HOVERTANK_AQWA_ARMOR_GAUSS_A_UC
#    selectUnitFemale: [446, 447, 448, 449, 450, 451, 452, 453, 454, 455, 456]    # 449 doesn't exist
  - type: HOVERTANK_AQWA_ARMOR_SONIC_A_UC
#    selectUnitFemale: [446, 447, 448, 449, 450, 451, 452, 453, 454, 455, 456]    # 449 missing
  - type: HOVERTANK_AQWA_ARMOR_ROCKET_A_UC
#    selectUnitFemale: [446, 447, 448, 449, 450, 451, 452, 453, 454, 455, 456]    # 449 missing


and many potentially wrong `hitAnimation`s... I didn't check all... maybe there are some false positives there, I need to check with Yankes about this particular check

I tried removing all hitAnimations and after that the game started.
(As a workaround, you can enable "Lazy Loading" in options and the sprites won't be validated)

Yeah, the hitAnimation validation seems wrong.
Will fix asap.

Problem:
If there are several transport ships at the BASE, two conflicting needs often arise:
 1. Sort soldiers by parameters.
2. Establish the order of placement of soldiers in each transport and not violate this order by sorting the general list.

Solution Suggestion:
Add to soldiers list (screenshot) filters:
 sort all soldiers;
sorting of soldiers assigned to transport 1;
sorting soldiers assigned to transport 2
 - with the preservation (memorization) of the list (order) of the location of soldiers in each transport.

1/ the comboboxes would be too small
2/ it would only "solve" the issue for 2 transports, not for 3, 4 or 77

1. Place the list of filters in the drop down list (as already done for the other sort buttons).

2.
Base 6x6. Therefore: in principle, it is impossible to build more than 8 hangars on the base. The maximum number of lines in the list will be 9. (Including all soldiers).
