Hiho!

Again 2.3 v27699:  Alien ufos are "invisible" in geoscape mode when they are spotted. Only a red circle shows where the ufo is. After I click this circle and I choose to intercept the ufo, the ufo symbol (which tells me whether it is a dangerous one or not) shows. So, nothing seriuos, it just struck me as strange.

Hmm, I haven't experienced it for quite some time now. The problem here is that the time is stopped before the ufo was drawn -- if I'm right. Do you have a savefile with which it's reproducible easily?

Edit: chose the correct savegame.

Yes, your explanation makes sense. The event (ufo is detected) stops the time but the ufo symbol doesn't exist yet.

I'll attach a savegame. The Ufo right there shouldn't be visible. It isn't in my game. :)  

I tried again, some ufos symbols appear, many don't. I can't understand why it works sometimes. Just try a few ufos if the first ones should show up. :)
