recently I played terror

and when I got MC ...
I subconsciously wanted to use alien inventory bug
to disarm aliens from sonic pulsers, or to give then dart gun gifts :D

I really miss that bug, REALLY!
I don't know if this is even possible
but some time ago I even considered to reintroduce this bug into terror itself LOL

I wonder if other players miss some bugs that were present in ufo
as well

do you have other ... errr .... candidates to reintroduce? ^_^

I miss that too. Not so much for the arming, but just disarming them of their grenades. You can still do it with a thermal tazer and revive them with medikits if you just want to keep an alien to keep the mission live for a while.

I can't really think of many other bugs they fixed I wished was still there.

NKF of course you are right
thermal tazer and revive works

it it just too much trouble for me
just imagine doing this for every alien you encounter

alien inventory bug just allowed for a much more efficient method of doing this

not to mention the fun of laser pistol gifts ^_^
( I miss this bug for both reasons )

A single lobstermen and some gauss pistols or dart guns will give you plenty of training. Not being able to arm the lobsterman so you can train reactions more efficiently is out, but you can at least react to them with a bit of encouragement. Definitely not as convenient though.

actually I found a safe method
which is based on Displacers/Sonic high resistance

I use displacers as a bait, rest is the same as you do
reaction triggers ^_^ are lobsters ( or tasoths ) with sonic-rifles

I also use dart guns instead of gauss pistols
mainly because of 12 ammo magazine
( so I don't need to count experience for myself )

It's still not as comfortable as laser pistol gifts :P

Having access to an MCed alien's inventory is an option in TFTD extender
