Here's a funny "bug" I ran into during a game a little while ago. I'm not sure how to reproduce it or what exactly let it happen so I don't expect it to be something you jump on fixing right away. Just thought I'd put the experience out here to let you know it exists and to let others laugh at it a bit.
So I'm attacking an AI city where they have several ships stationed. During the battle most of the AI ships scatter, and at least one travels to the FAAAAAR right. far enough that I think it left the visible screen. At least it was hard enough for me to see it/click it or whatever. Anyway, I assume it'll get shot up at some point and promptly ignore it.
We exchange fire for awhile and eventually every enemy ship is destroyed or disabled. At least I think so. My men aren't celebrating but they're also not shooting at anything.
I pan around the map for awhile looking for any ship I might have missed, but can't find anything. I move my ships around to adjust their firing angles to get all the screen edges, in case something is maybe just out of view. They never fire a shot. Now I'm just stumped.
Just when I'm thinking the game glitched and I'll have to "flee" to end it, one of my ships with bomb bays randomly starts dropping bombs. It's been floating there this whole time doing nothing and now it's just unloading into the ground. Except the bombs don't detonate when they hit the ground or the lower edge of the screen. They're also arching significantly towards the right.
That's when I realize what happened. I had blown out the suspendium chamber of the ship at the right screen edge and it dropped like a stone, but it never hit the ground. I dunno if the ground doesn't extend past the screen at all or if it maybe does just a little, but that ship definitely missed it. And now it's stuck in the limbo of not being defeated and forever falling into nothingness.
Eventually it must have fallen far enough that it finally came within the small arcs of my ship's bomb bays, which is why it started spewing bombs out into the void. Good thing too, or I might never have figured out what happened.
Oh dear. :D I'll see that I can fix this one!
i have encountered this bug too though it has only happened once.
Same for me, the enemy ship has disappeared on the left side and my airship stop shooting after few minutes... I was forced to flee.
Can confirm this should be fixed in 6.3. :D
