downloading ticket attachments is currently a little bit broken here. you have to retry - it took my 8 retries to see the images. some html crap is downloaded the other 7 times.

@shipit Maybe you can fix that? This issue present on all maps with corrupter ufo.

I am investigating the problem, but it really does not look like an easy fix to me. We will have to make a decision about the overall design of the cockpit, I think.

I put this in here, together with a similar problem in bomber.

This is not a map problem. Compiling with -nobackclip solves the problem. I guess the mapcompiler treats those faces as 'pointing downwards', although they are visible in game.

This problem only accours for planes that have a certain height (around the middle of a level I guess). In this case it is possible to move the camera below.
