[v17.1 Ground Combat] Flashbangs broken?

Recommended Posts

Are flashbangs range and power is suppose to be that bad?

Example 1: 

Flashbang exploded 1 tile away from this guy - not suppressed.

Example 2:

Flashbang again exploded 1 tile away from those guys. Not suppressed, reaction fired and death of my soldier.

Didn't experience this previously.

Flash range is a few cells, 2 at least. Just Sebilians are a bit protected from it, it often happens that one flash is not enough, it takes 2, and in some cases even 3 attempts.

Exactly MrAlex. Some Aliens are more immune to Flashbangs, Stun and such things. Then you need minimum 2, sometimes 3 or more to get an effect. It´s a Feature, not a Bug and is explained in the Research-Reports in the Texts and in later Stages of the Development with more information.

I don't think that's a bug, but it might be a balance issue. I think maybe Sebillians just have too high bravery to be easily suppressed by flashbangs, but maybe I need to tweak that a bit.

@Chris in the pictures the OP posted, the cabbages are growing through the floor of the UFO. I've seen that happen before but didn't get a screenshot.  Is that deliberate or a bug?

It's a bug, although I know why it's happening (a side effect of quite an important system) but I haven't come up with a straightforward fix for it yet. It's on the back burner for now.
