For starters it would do way more damage, since iirc/afaik sneak attacks roll damage based on your weapon skill but also your stealth skill. And maybe you would be able to get away with the first (set) of murders for free, criminal record-wise. Nobody would be exactly sure who done it, yeah?

Also the point of my system is also that sneak attacking with a firearm wouldn't be that much more advantageous. I don't want to break the game balance or anything. Also it would incentivize people to program silenced weapons =o

You know, it's really annoying when Liberal Indoctrinees change their name when joining the glorious revolution. WAD?

There are a few bugs that have existed since the original version of the game. The most critical is in creature.cpp function Creature::roll_check. The code reads:
Code: [Select]
      // Keep the top three dice
      if(i<3)
         roll[i]=newroll;
      else
         for(int j=0;j<3;j++)
            if(newroll>roll[j])
            {
               roll[j]=newroll;
               break;
            }
If you think about a sequence of 4 die rolls {3,5,1,6} you will find that when the 6 is rolled it replaces the 3 in the roll array leaving the final state of the array {6,5,1}. To correct this problem replace with code such as:
Code: [Select]
      // Keep the top three dice
      if(i<3)
         roll[i]=newroll;
      else
         for(int j=0;j<3;j++)
            if(newroll>roll[j])
            {
               int temp=roll[j];
               roll[j]=newroll;
               newroll=temp;
               break;
            }

A minor but irritating one is in activate.cpp in the second activate function. Way down during selection of what to teach other liberals:
Code: [Select]
               case CREATURE_VETERAN: // for fighting skills
                  cr->activity.type=ACTIVITY_TEACH_FIGHTING;
-                  choice='2';
+                  choice='3';

                  break;
               // this second block are creatures with Computers, Security, Stealth, Disguise, Tailoring, Seduction, Psychology, & Driving
...
              case CREATURE_WORKER_SWEATSHOP: // for Tailoring
                  cr->activity.type=ACTIVITY_TEACH_COVERT;
-                  choice='3';
+                  choice='2';
                  break;
               // this third block are creatures with Writing, Persuasion, Law, Street Sense, Science, Religion, Business, Music, & Art

With the second thing, is it just that choice is given the wrong value in the context or something more? I can't find that giving choice any value will do anything.

In older code there was a bug where the user selection for what to teach would produce the wrong result. This little holdover bug from that is not very serious. The sequence to see it in action is:
1. Select to activate on a liberal of any of the professions that will default to teaching either fighting or infiltration.
2. Select 't' for Teach, note that it highlights a reasonable selection.
3. Press 't' again and note that it switches the selection.

I'm sorry, I can not reproduce the bug from your instructions. Those two lines still look like they don't actually do anything to me.

You are right. I was looking around that section for a related bug that existed for many versions. Finding that the old bug has been corrected and spotting the other error I assumed it would be a problem. I didn't test it completely before reporting it and that was really bad of me.

Mistakes happen. I have fixed the dice rolling so it keeps the three highest results and removed the unnecessary lines.

I believe I found a bug with the justice system. When You have a person in the justice system you can get them out by making a new squad and selecting their name. They start off in the place they where, thus you end up with a one man squad inside a court house or prison.

The game even thinks their prison is a safe house. Must be conservative brainwashing!

Download a newer version, it should be fixed.

Well, there are beta versions up to 4.07.4; I haven't stickied that thread because the new features aren't all there yet.

Ah I see, I thought the BETA sign meant that it was considered a branch off for now.

It is, it's just also newer, and so has some of the bugs fixed that this version doesn't.
