Unselectable UFOs
« on: March 16, 2013, 08:42:09 am »
In January 2085 UFOs started to appear, which I cannot select and cannot send fighters at them. This first appeared with Fighter 115, but after that I tried for a while, and neither could I select other types. Until this time, everything was fine, I intercepted and shot down a lot of UFOs.

If I select crashed or landed UFOs, the menu pops up normally so I can send out my troop transports.
If I select a flying UFO, it's type and speed is displayed, the circle around it changes color, but if I click on them again, nothing happens. The dialog about which interceptor I wish to send, does not open. I do have interceptors in working condition (repaired, fueled, manned, equipped) in many bases, including a base within range of the UFO.

I can send out interceptors manually, but can't find a way for them to attack those UFOs.

Is this a bug, or is it a feature about some new type of stealth UFOs or something similar?

Are they equipped with a weapon that requires ammo (Sparrowhawk missiles, for instance) and do you have ammo for them?

If you've checked that, attach a savegame file and let us know if you're playing 2.4 or 2.5.

Most of them have only particle beam weapons, and they fought a lot of battles before. I have both stilettos and dragons, and have plenty of antimatter. I'm playing 2.5 from 26. January. Should I redownload and retry, or post a savegame?

Confirmed. I've posted a bug report. The following error is printed to the console when selecting the UFO:

Code: [Select]
ERROR: AIR_CRASHED should not be visible anywhere
