Hi Kuertee. Are you talking about the Raptor? If it matches this, it's already been fixed in trunk.

maybe its the same.
but my soldiers are inside the dropship.
and i only bring 3 or 4 at a time.

with this image, notice that the cursor is not a box.
i think this indicates that the cursor is on a space soldiers can't move through.

with this image, notice that the cursor is a blue box instead of the green box.
i think this indicates that the soldier cannot at this time move to that space - because it is blocked or out-of-range.

in both, notice that the cursor is actually in spaces that soldiers can move through.

edited to attach the photos and add the original urls

I can't see any images. You should be able to just attach them to your post (look at the Additional Options below the text input). Thanks.

Shit. This has just gone out in 2.3.1 and affects ALL dropships on the map. I think this is because when the latest maps were pulled to 2.3 they included the rescue zone trigger brushes which 2.3 does not know how to handle.

We've got fixes set up for those maps now and will be releasing a patch to 2.3.1 soon. Thanks for reporting.

http://mattn.ninex.info/1maps.pk3 - please try this patch (copy into your base dir) and check whether it works with it.

Thanks Mattn! The fix worked for me too.

EDIT: Have you guys implemented Mattn's fix into the current installer? The bug that it squashed is definitely game-breaking and may discourage some.

I'm kind of surprised my last question hasn't been answered. Not meaning to nag but I just saw another "actors not moving in big city" thread pop up.

I strongly suggest Mattn's hotfix to be integrated into the 2.3.1 installer (if it hasn't been already).

Thanks for the fix. I stopped playing after I got stuck, and just today remembered how much I wanted to keep on playing. This is awesome. One question, tho: when you say 'copy this to your base dir', do you mean the installation dir (\UFO2.3.1) or the BASE directory inside the installation one (\UFO2.3.1\base) ??
