[13.2 Ground Combat] 0% chance to hit through 1 block of smoke

Recommended Posts

There is one tile of smoke blocking shots in this save. If the sniper (Itsuko Kondo) tries to shot through it to hit the Sebilian behind the orange barrier the hit % comes up as 0%, while the rifleman (Huang Tailin) can get a non-zero hit aiming around the smoke. If the rifleman aims through the smoke at the Big Sebilian he will also get a 0% chance to hit. In both of the cases holding down ctrl to force the shot will not work either.

That smoke is apparently so dense that it is literally blocking. Maybe made of nano-machines that yank bullets out of their trajectory?

Does anyone know how smoke works, e.g., does a single hex/square block LOS that goes through any part of the square?  

Dagar, I like your sign-off line.  Does it work?

Normaly Smoke is blocking your Sights like a Nebula, so you can see only blurred or only in a short line of sight (very near) to see a shadow in the Nebula.

I did that with my Men too against the Aliens, esp. on an UFO-Entry, open Field and such. In the Game it´s working like the real Smoke and Nebula-Grenade. Combined with the Shoking Grenade and the upgraded Version of both it´s ammazing.

Most of the Human-Like Aliens have the same Problem with the 2 Grenades, for others you have to use the upgraded version / versions. Against Robitics you have to use EMP instead.

The Line of sight is good but the Aliens have a Smoke Shield, that makes direkt Hits impossible. The Problem is, that the Smoke is bigger but you can´t see it. It´s an Map Problem, had this too. But should be solved in Beta 14.
