Hi, I wish to have missionweight by certain alien races starting later in the year.

This is my original format.

    missionWeights:
      6:
        STR_ALIEN_RESEARCHSECTOID: 33
        STR_ALIEN_RESEARCHSNAKEMAN: 33
        STR_ALIEN_RESEARCHFLOATER: 34
      9:
        STR_ALIEN_RESEARCHSECTOID: 33
        STR_ALIEN_RESEARCHSNAKEMAN: 23
        STR_ALIEN_RESEARCHFLOATER: 24
        STR_ALIEN_RESEARCHMUTON: 20
      15:
        STR_ALIEN_RESEARCHSECTOID: 23
        STR_ALIEN_RESEARCHSNAKEMAN: 23
        STR_ALIEN_RESEARCHFLOATER: 24
        STR_ALIEN_RESEARCHMUTON: 20
        STR_ALIEN_RESEARCHETHEREAL: 10   

It is incorrect.

Can a correct sample be provided?

Alien race initially start at Month 6, then 9 and lastly 15

Thank you.

There's not enough information provided.

We don't know if these mission weights are defined in regions ruleset, or alien mission ruleset, or mission scripts ruleset or somewhere else.

in mission script, with "firstMonth: 6", it is correct

The missionweight syntax legal but incorrect.

What is the correct format? If I want muton to appear in month 9 and ETHEREAL in month 15?  With cumulative weight distribution for the other races changed as well? Base of month and appearance?

Can a correct version be provided for missionweight?

Your example is correct.

I didn't know it was from mission script and that you defined firstMonth, when I said it was incorrect.
