Strength and encumberance.
Hey guys i play this game and love it but i'm kind of curious as to how much strength affects encumberance before you start to take a time unit penalty.

I'm about to tear through the manual but i am curious as to what page it might be on and what else i should look up while i'm there.

Thank you in advance.

Every item has a weight score. If the weight score > strength, then you lose time units. Unfortunately, the game doesn't tell you the weight score of any of the items.

You can either install UFO Extender, which has the option of showing you the current encumbrance. ufopaedia.org also lists the weights of all the items in the game (along with tons of other information).

As a general rule, grenades, flares, clips etc. are weight 3 or so. Guns are around 10, and big guns 20. Rocket launchers are heavy because of the rockets. Plasma weapons are light for their size, though.

Thank you very much :)
Is there any in game way for me to look at how much general stores space something will take up before i move/buy it?

Also it seems that ten grenades take up 1 storage space though i could be wrong
