Hidden location in Antarctica
« on: December 06, 2011, 05:16:58 pm »
If you’re switching through the different objects on the worldmap (using Space-button) you sometimes may find a invisible location in Antarctica.

Additionally you will receive the following information about it:
Location: No Nation
Typ: Harvesting mission
Objective: An industrial Area in a cold region

My game-version: UFO:AI-dev._2.4 (Nov_24_2011)
This Bug is reproduceable on my system using the attached savegame:

Regards, Magniff

OK, seems like the problem is much bigger.

Once again I‘ve found an invisible harvesting mission (using space on the worldmap), but this time it‘s located in Africa. 
I‘ve also send a Firebird to investigate the questionable location, but it was unable to detect anything.
To me it seems like some harvesting-missions are just not displayed, also the usual notification on the left upper corner of the screen didn't appear. Of course there have already been some harvesting-mission witch didn’t cause any problems (The notification appeared and the corresponding symbol was displayed on the worldmap).

Currently I really got no clue whether this hidden missions are intended or not.

Once again I‘ve attached the corresponding savegame.
Regards, Magniff

I think the bug will be in the "iterator" it should not show you these hidden missions. You know, only Terror missions are reported by nations, other ones are only visible if you have detected the UFO or the mission with your radars.

I'll investigate the issue as soon as I have a bit time (created a ticket for it: bug#3453435). Thanks for reporting.

Hi,

first of all, thanks a lot for providing a patch on the issue such quickly.  :)

Now I‘ve downloaded the patch but since I‘m using the installer Version of 2.4, I got no clue what to do with the patch file.
Any advices?

Its a patch for the "git version" of the game. That means its relatively useless for someone who installed the nightlybuild like you. :(
