Airplane on moon with no atmosphere - 8/28/2021 4:44:27 PM

Hi everyone,

I recently finished a play on a small moon with no atmosphere (Gravity 0.1 g, Atmospheric density 0%).
In that case, the advised aircraft engine is 'Rocket'.
It is not possible to research the 'Propeller Engine' tech due to 'requisite condition' missing (I guess that the requisite condition is the atmosphere
However, once I researched the 'Rocket Engine' tech, I'm not able to build any rocket propelled aircraft.

The point is that the 'Ultralight Aircraft' model is locked behind 'Propeller Engine'. Same for 'Light Thopter' and 'Light Helicopter'.

Am I missing something here, or is this a bug ?

Thanks ! :-)


Game version : v1.09 Steam

As I read the tables in Debug mode, you need Propellar (tech.350) to unlock ultralights, from where you can unlock everything else.
So it does indeed sound like a bug/oversight.

Propellers ARE required in an airless situation because they look cool and cause a +1 confusion modifier in the enemy's reaction time.
