Phase ship bug
« on: December 19, 2012, 09:57:04 AM »

Noticed this while recording my latest video, it seems a Afflictor tried to fire its AM blaster but it diddnt fire, it did however build up flux. Seems it cut the shot by phasing in while it was charging up.

Also the Phase ship AI seems to be unaware that it can pass through ships to gain a flanking advantage.

Evidence!: Here! At: 15:30

(Even slowed it down for you)

Hmm. I appreciate the report, but I don't think this is a bug :) Going into phase cuts off whatever weapons fire was going on.

As far as the AI is concerned, it could probably be more careful about it, but depending on what kind of damage is coming in, going into phase - even if it means losing that shot - isn't necessarily a bad idea. It can dissipate that soft flux while phased, anyway...
