Hello. I have started this mod recently.

It is fun.

I went through what I unlocked of Ufopedia so far and compiled grammar corrections that I found into a file. They are in the order they appear in Ufopedia, not the order they are in in the original file.

I also have some bugs to report and a suggestion.

Bugs:
Atmospheric Satellite and Stun Rod are in UFOPEDIA from the start, even though you can't buy them.

Missile Defenses are in UFOPEDIA from the start, but can't be built.

TAZER causes critical wounds, making in somewhat bad at capturing foes. No Health damage, just critical wounds.

Grenade UFOPEDIA entry says it has a timer for precise control. But it does not in this mod.

Battle cocktail's UFOPEDIA entry calls STR_BUFFER_UFOPEDIA, instead of STR_BUFFER_1_UFOPEDIA.

Suggestions:
I think that the magical daggers (Fire Dagger, Frost dagger, and Icy dagger) in Outcast Mage's 'Gives one for free' should be gated behind Magic Items.

Hello again. I have brought 3 more corrections and one bug this time.

Starting with bug, game crashed with attached message upon researching Zombie Corpse. Presumably, it takes the requirement for STR_ZOMBIE_AUTOPSY from .../standard/xcom1/research.rul:222.

As for language corrections, they are now sorted in the order I happened to research the topics in.

Hello,

 Is there a "nighly" version, or only the version 0.5 ? If you work continuously on this mod, would be nice to have the "rolling version", i think.
