I have set up a test to build OXCE AppImage whenever a new OXCE is released. This should theoretically make it very easy to run OXCE on any linux distro (and WSL?), although I've only tested it on Ubuntu 20.04 & Fedora 38 myself.
...
Releases can be found here: https://github.com/pedroterzero/oxce-docker/releases

I wonder why the scripts are called build-latest.sh and get-latest.sh, even though they are not getting the latest version but rather the version you have to specify in VERSION. Wouldn't it make sense for the scripts to find out what's the latest version? Or name them in a different manner.

Is there a way to disable reaction fire for a soldier or the whole squad for a mission or permanently? Draining the timeunits is quite tedious.

Small heads up, I reverted recent change of `personalLight` for aliens as it had some minor glitches and break completely XPZ.
Now I added as replacement `personalLightHostile` and `personalLightNeutral` for permanent light on aliens or civilians.

Does it make it easier detectable at night?

At least the original personal light did. I noticed this in XCF with tanks for example. They have a bright personal light, making it impossible to use them in night-time missions when the enemies have weapons that could hurt them (would attract all the enemy fire) unless you disable it at the start of every mission. I dread those who don't know of this feature and the special hotkey to disable it (no way to know it otherwise).

In OXCE 7.11.2 I added script hook that alow changing how vapor particles moves (speed + acceleration) that allow lot more variability
in types of weapon attacks.
As hack you can even fake additional "hit" effects moving some particles closer to end of trajectory and spreed them from that point.
(rifle do something like this in example video)

Is it possible for me to modify what the debug cheats do? like I want it to give me $1m not $999m or instead of every item/creature only specific ones?
