Just tested it and this is my conclusion: Talent Is not bugged.

I tried it with two soldiers with 25 strength. One of them has resourceful talent and one does not. In tactical map soldier with talent can carry 31 and soldier without the talent can carry 25. That is 25% more after rounding.

What is bugged is that on Geoscape it shows encumbrance 34 for the guy with the perk instead of 31.

But doesn’t the perk also say it grants a +2 to strength as well?

So your guy with 25 strength should either be at (25str+2str)+25%=33.75 [rounded up would in fact be 34] or at (25str+25%)+2=33.25 [rounded to 33]. Either way 31 doesn’t seem right.

The perk appearing to only grant the +25% and not the +2 to strength is the bug in question.

Vipre: You are right. Then it means that the value shown on Geoscape is actually the correct one and the talent is bugged.

Vit Barta: Long post on the forum but short version, Geoscape adds the +2 to current strength then calculates the +25% carry capacity bonus based on the new total, while tactical layer only appears to apply the +2 str to HP calculation and possibly bash damage and throwing range while basing carry capacity off actual strength +25%.

Per the talent description either one could be the bug depending on what was intended with the talent's design.

I have the same problem. The calculation in the personal screen seems to be calculated as

Carry weight = ((Strength +2)/4)+Strength

where as in the tactical screen it is calculated

Carry weight = (Strength/4) + Strength

It is not only 2-3 points. In my tests it was excactly the 25% of the skill
