UFO recovery bug???
« on: June 14, 2008, 01:11:37 am »
Hey everyone,

Just started playing, I'm a big indie gamer, and I have to say I am so pleased with this game. I've been a long time fan of the original Xcom and I'm so psyched to see this open source revival of the game. Thanks so much to the developers for doing this. I came across what may or may not be a bug, I'm not sure. I tried to search for this and nothing came up... so...

I'm not sure if this is a bug or not:

I finished a mission with an intact harvester for the first time (and UFO hangars in 3 of my 6 bases) and sent it back to my headquarters. I checked back after my dropship returned home and the UFO wasn't available for research or disassembly. Is this a bug? Or is there something else you need to do beyond hitting the recover ufo button after the mission complete dialog comes up?

-Vox

I guess you play version 2.2(.1 ?).  You have to capture a Scout first.
It has been changed in the current developing version where you get an UFO Theory research when capturing a UFO (any type).

2.2.1 has UFO theory.
