How can I attack an ufo landing area
« on: May 12, 2020, 10:37:22 pm »
On the geoscape landed UFOs are appearing like bases. Red colored rectangles - not green crosses.
But I am not allowed to attack them.

What do I need here?

Those are not landing areas, those are alien ambassy. You need a decyphered alien key to get inside, just advance through Hybrid story arc.

Doesn't it tell you exactly why you can't attack them?
I mean seriously, is the message broken or something?

Well it is I think, at least last time I played. It says that you need something to attack, but does not state what exactly. I mean text looks like "To attack this base you need: *blank space* "

OK, gotcha.

Still, works for me - see attachment. I guess something is wrong with your installation.

OK, an update: you need to learn about the item first, otherwise it won't tell you what exactly is needed.

Hi there, facing the same problem on russian translation - no required items displays:
ru1.png

But if i switch to English in Game options - everything is Ok:
us1.png

Strange, because if check ru.yml langfile the string STR_ALIEN_KEY_DECRYPTED exists...
1.4a + OXCE 6.5.3

Sorry, no idea. I haven't seen this reported before, so chances are it's related to your installation.

The russian translation of STR_STARTING_CONDITION_ITEM is missing {0} at the end.
