Hi Zarkonnen, here's an odd behavior I just experienced:
When: Campaign mode, attacking a city, just won a battle with some neutralized enemy ships still alive, i.e disarmed.
What: Instead of having the ship flee to some nearby city, the game re-initiate a battle, this time treating the enemy ships as attackers.
it does not seem to happen every time, just from time to time
Noted! I'll investigate this.
I think this happens because AI thinks that his ships are OK and decides to recapture the city. Could that be so? If that is so, I don't think that's much of a bug...
Easy to reproduce... Flee a city defense and another combat pop'in where you're the attacker.
Each time a combat is over by ammo depletion, ammunitions are automatically refilled on the map. So, the program think you're ready to fight again !
I think refill process must only takes place in a friendly city to avoid this problem or defeated fleets must be "forced" in "conditions not met" for city attack...
Then may be it's not a bug at all?
What? U lost, but may be u just made a mistake and can recapture the city with the remaining force? That's not what happens often, but can be useful.
Of course... Your fleet flees for 5 seconds and find a huge stock of ammo and coal coming from nowhere and decides to resurrect dead crew to try again... Oh I forgot to mention holes filled during the process too... I knew there was some miracle workers around here !
Fascinating ! ^_^
ok. u said "refill". it's not "repair". sorry.
'cause repair was not my main concern but it turns out small holes are filled too !
