    I've just noticed that Chico Cois has all stats at 10. This seems to have happened during the "Cannons of Mona" part. I've got a savegame when I was at Hopital, on the way back to Havana after the mission, in which Chico has most stats at 10 and a couple at 9 plus stupid percent ("stupid" means "several hundred"). And another from just before I was going to Isla Mona, in which his stats are rather more sensible and only a few are at 9 or 10.

    Normally, when the player finishes a quest I add some code like this:

    Code:
                if(AUTO_SKILL_SYSTEM)
                {
                    AddPartyExpChar(pchar, "Leadership", 10000);
                    AddPartyExpChar(pchar, "Sneak", 100);
                }
                else { AddPartyExp(pchar, 10000); }
    Seeing, Chico Cois is officer. He also acquires some xp, right?

    Yes, Chico has been acquiring experience the same as other officers. That doesn't explain why he suddenly jumped from some 5's, 6's and a couple of 9's and 10's, to all 10's and an overall level higher than my own. ;) Unless he acquired a lot of experience while he was off scouting Isla Mona and getting arrested...

    The last thing concerning Chico Cois in the Cannons of Mona quest is that code:
    Code:
    SetOfficersIndex(PChar, -1, GetCharacterIndex("Chico Cois"));
    so that he can be your officer again.:shrug

    The buildmod is now so complex with so many options, parameters that it's not surprising to note some weird bugs. But, as we know:
    WE ALWAYS GET WHAT WE DESERVE IN LIFE.... NO ONE TO BLAME BUT OURSELVES. :cheeky

    Do you have cheatmode enabled? Any chance you accidentally leveled him up several times?

    Does his level match up with his skills anyway? Or are they way out of proportion?

    I do not have cheatmode enabled - in fact, I don't know how to. ;) So it is unlikely I levelled him up.

    Skills are supposed to rise with use, not with level. I don't know how Chico managed to do enough trading or gunnery to get his Commerce, Cannons and Accuracy skills up to 10, for a start.

    The point is, he was nowhere near that level when we went into Isla Mona, and nobody else had levelled up that much by the time we left.

    You gain skills from XP and you gain levels from XP. So there should be a relation between the two.
    If you have a level 1 character with all skills at 10, the only way to do that is to bypass all experience gaining code.

    So I am wondering is Chico actually gained a lot of levels or only a lot of skills without the corresponding levels.
    That might give a clue on whether the experience gaining system did something weird or if this is because of something else.

    This is a feature of the game and has been for a long time. After a certain period some of your officers suddenly load up on tons of XP and become super officers at 10-10 in everything.

    It happens to Edgar Attwood after he completes his little side quest of the drunken brawls, and happens to regular officers after a certain something triggers it. I have at least 4 super officers now.

    Wha? Never heard of that before. If it is a "feature", I do not think it is intentional. :no

    He's level 44. I'm level 36. Prior to Isla Mona, he was lower level than me. And I very much doubt I'll have all skills at 10 by the time I reach level 44. Some of mine are at 10, others are quite high due to equipment bonuses, and some are nowhere near that high.

    Besides, level increase is fairly gradual. If this were normal then he'd have been at least close to level 40 before we got to Isla Mona with most skills at 9 or 10. He wasn't. And since neither I nor any of my other officers got such a massive increase during the Isla Mona mission, So, as I said, the only way he got that even remotely legitimately is if he got a massive amount of XP while he was off scouting the fort and being arrested.
