2 possible bugs
« on: November 25, 2014, 03:42:21 PM »
I thought I'd ask about these here before mantising, in case I'm missing something. (I don't think they've been reported yet)

1. After being KO'd while smuggling resistance fighters, the failure screen made no mention of the 6 ships I had managed to get to the landing zone. Unless the enemy ships chased them down after finishing with me surely that would have meant 6m fighters on the planet?

2. No allies turned up in either of the joint orbital bombardment quests I tried. Maybe they had no available fleets at the time, but it seemed odd that I was the only ship in a joint attack. Maybe I should read quest descriptions more closely before starting them.

These were both in Invasion mode, in which my fighting skill is what you'd expect from a giant dragonish thing trying to pilot a ship made for relatively minute owls.

Heya -- let's see...

1. I imagine that those did arrive, but in the months that were spent with you recuperating after being KO'd, so were they.  I'm sure they did some small damage while they were there, but not as much as they could have with your support had you not been KO'd.

2. That is indeed super odd, it sounds like possibly they did not have fleets available at the time that the quest was accepted, though they would have had to when the quest was started.  That happening two times in a row is super duper odd, though.   If you happen to have a quest of that sort pop up again soon, be sure to save before it, and please give us an upload if accepting it causes the same problem.  It's possible that some of the recent changes to who is on what side in missions actually busted those missions, which is something Keith and I had worried might happen, but this would be the first indication of it if so (these things tend to be very case-specific).

Oh my goodness, that made me laugh. :D
