    Woo..
    I'm ahead, I'm a man
    I'm the first mammal to wear pants, yeah
    I'm at peace with my lust
    I can kill 'cause in God I trust, yeah
    It's evolution, baby

    [...]
    Do The Evolution - Pearl Jam                             

    My first port to 2.3-dev of the MOD for 2.2.1. This is a fan MOD and has nothing to do with plans/changes of the developer team. The dev team can but DOES NOT have to incorporate these changes into the main game as some changes are obviously unbalanced or just stupid ;). Use this mod at your own risk, usually there is no support for modified programs as no quality can be assured.

    This file is a merge between my changes to v2.2.1 and the trunk version 23734 - it may not work correctly with later versions.

    Install info: The attached file should be unzipped to the following directory:
    <your game directory>\base\ufos
    i.e.
    E:\Games\UFOAI-2.3-dev\base\ufos

    Change log:
    Quote

    For now I deleted the attachment as there are some problems with the radar. Do not know why but the campaign crashes the game even that I did not touch the radar at all.

    Hello. Without files it will be hard to debug. Can we please test it? or can you provide a backtrace of the crash? Thanks a lot.

    First I will try to find the error my self. If I wont succeed I will post the file so maybe other can point my obvious mistake :)

    For now you keep working on those regresions in the maps. :P

    Edit: I have traced the error to the auto layout of the base when I try to touch the building requirements. I will make a version without any building changes and then another mod for the buildings alone.

    File added. I had to discard all building changes, I will make a separate mod for it.

    Question: How can I assign those weapons to categories? All were thrown to the 'Misc' category. Better, how can I add my own category?

    from your MOD:
    Code: [Select]
    item machinegun2
    {
    ....
    is_misc true
    }
    ^That's why they're misc.
    There are other flags:
    * is_primary
    * is_heavy
    * is_secondary

    Adding a new category isn't that easy. It needs coding.
