Black Market only offers Specialists

Post by Mooncabbage » Fri Feb 17, 2017 1:19 pm

Not sure if this is a reported bug, tried searching the forum and apparently the words "Black" and "Market" are too common and were ignored....

Anyway, I have noticed a bug whereby the Black Market only ever has Specialist class troops available for recruitment. I have quite a few other mods running, but nothing that messes with the classes or the black market, mostly just cosmetic and UI mods.

Not sure what's up here, I'm like 6 months into the game, and it has only ever offered specialists.

Not sure if this is a bug. The same happened to me in my campaign around that time with Technicals.

I think the Black Market gives you the Soldiers Class you have the least of. So if you didn't train Specialists (or Technicals as in my case) it will spawn that class as long as it takes to make it on par with your other classes.
In my case i had like 7 soldiers of each other class but just 2 Technicals. Black Market then decided to give me 2 Technicals the 1st Month and another 3 the next month while returning to a one of each class rotation on the month after.

Reloading save will help to get what you want .
On supply drops new character is generated.
Load save before supply drop.

I have only one grenadier and no grenadier in black market.
My first blackmarket soldier is re-rolling his stats. I can't find culprit. So now I m save scumming the game to resolve the problem.
Right now in 1.5 i can get any soldier
