A few missions back i found a alien pistol, now after i have researched a little bit i can use it. But as opposed to all other weapons i have unlimited magazines for it.

I dont think that this a feature or am i wrong?

Unlimited magazins or Energy?

You allready see the Alien energy Cell? It is like a Mini Fusion Work..it can hold 1000 Shoot each energy cell. i had never the needing to change the Energy Cell of a Laser Weapon when i used it.

Yeah, it does seemt o work that way, but the ammo type is different too, so if you had to pick up each clip, you'd be out 24/7 on missions to retreive clips for your laser guns. The ammo can get eaten up pretty damn fast :rolleyes:
May your terror missions always be infested with Chrysalids.

ok, i think i have to go more in the detail.

I have to different clips for the alien laser pistol. One can store 1000 energy and the other 2000. The only difference is in the color of the crystal on the bottom.

The problem or bug i think is that i can put as many clips as i want in the inventory of my soldiers. The clips for all others weapons are limited in their amount.

Can be only one Solution...your Base and Technical Network is so big that they can create unlimited own Energy Crystals in the bases =P

or it's a bug...

I think it's more of a convenience than a bug, as there'd never be enough Reticulan missions to keep your stocks of ammo up for more than two missions :rolleyes:

i dont think it is a bug.. cause the energy cells you can produce are the human equivalents for use in the human laser pistols and rifles. and the alien ammo type is just... i dunno where it comes from.. fell off the back of a UFO?  :rolleyes:

It's the same for me. I have an infinite number of 1000 and 2000 unit batteries. Both weigh the same so there's no point taking the 1000!

I only have 3 engineering bases (out of 14).

I have not researched energy yet!

Sounds like the bug in the original UFO where if you shot down a battlehsip over your base but the aliens still invaded you would get tonnes of Elerium :o

Is this the bug that the 1.1a patch has fixed?  Or are there two energy cell related bugs?
