Re: Archer Grenade Range too small

It's true, the standard MEC grenade range is 17 mobility points (about 11.5 tiles), which is just barely more than the soldier grenade range of 15 mob (10 tiles). You would think that a MEC can launch much farther than a soldier, even without perks. Bombard increases the range by 50% which means a l...

MEC count missing in the barracks roster

Only soldier counts are shown on top, which doesn't include MEC. Is there a mod, or any other way to see the MEC count for each class?

Re: Getting big ships down

OK, I understand the bug, but i think you misunderstood my question. I wasn't suggesting that the bug should be in the description, especially if it's fixed now. My question is: Does your mod change weapon/armor/penetration values for individual interceptors / UFOs? For example, the values listed he...

Re: Getting big ships down

Well EMP does not change the chance for UFO to be destroyed or not. It only impacts chances of getting more elerium, power sources, alloys if the UFO is not destroyed. To make sure EMP shoots down UFO I would consider editing DGC to make EMP deal less damage with every shot but increase its fire ra...

Re: Getting big ships down

If your two firestorms don't stand a chance it means it's very late game and UFOs have probably maxed out their HP and weapons, and you're running late on building Firestorms and better weapons. Early-mid game I took down large UFOs with Phoenix cannon and sparrowhawks. Those were good times... But ...

The most important staff are Credits - because you get it FOR FREE. I do not care that other modders neglect the fact and put it at the end.

Re: Squadron attack coming soon

This sounds really interesting, but I don't quite understand what the mod actually does.. It says "sending multiple interceptors at once", but are they actually all engaging the UFO at the same time? The extra jets are not actually visible, so it's just their names shown with health bars? Do you act...

Smoke/chem grenade capture glitch explained.

Sometimes you toss a smoke grenade thinking that your units will receive the defense bonus, just to find out later that they did not... After a lot of testing, I figured out how the smoke/chem radius works exactly, and why it glitches out sometimes. Here is a video I made that shows the gist of it, ...

Re: Can't hop over fences with Muscle Fiber Density?

actually, these things are already in the game. You don't need additional functions to measure height of walls, the game already has that information. How do you think the game determines line of sight if it didn't know how high a barrier is? Also, "jump availability" is no different than "flight av...

Re: how to make squad size upgrade also take effect on covert extraction mission

If you need more soldiers, you're not playing extractions missions correctly. I rarely need all 4 units, and I don't recall using them to actually fight the exalt. You're not supposed to fight them on these missions. The only reason I fill all 4 slots is to get a little XP, but other than that I jus...

Re: Can't hop over fences with Muscle Fiber Density?

It's true, I don't understand why units can jump on some trucks but not on cars. But the fence problem is a little different because the fence doesn't even occupy any area tiles, its between two tiles. It makes no sense that the units can't jump over it. MFD is still one of the best gene mods though...

This is a question for the devs. Is there any chance that at least some of the outstanding bugs will ever get fixed? If the devs are done with LW 1, would anyone else be able to take over the project just to fix bugs?

Thank you for LW !
