Assorted minor bugs and issues
« on: November 25, 2018, 03:09:04 PM »

I'll will add other small stuff as I come across it.

- An inconsistency: You can't learn modspecs during salvage. You can learn blueprints.

- Bug or edge case? In any case, the text "most come through" doesn't make sense here.



- "w" shoudl probaby show fuel range on the map, like in the intel UI, for consistency.


- The [redacted] ships around the red  planet seem to have pirate names ("Old Earth or Bust")

Thank you - made a note to go through these.

You can learn stuff when there's no transaction in progress, either during salvage or otherwise. At least, unless I'm wrong and something does prevent modspecs from being learnable during salvage :)

You are able to learn modspecs during salvage.
You are NOT able to learn modspecs, while transferring goods (just need to confirm or abort transaction and then you can learn all you want).

When a ship's sensor profile is changed due to hullmods, increases to sensor profile are shown with a green number in the stats, and decreased sensor profile with red, as if to say that more sensor profile is better.

(Thank you! This came up a while back elsewhere; fixed it up the other day!)

Somehow, I got into this tiny broken simulator. Hid some random key, I think? Can't reproduce it  now, I know that's not very helpful, but I thought I'd mention it anyway.

Weeeird. Just to confirm: not in dev mode? Somehow this looks vaguely familiar...

No devmode. I might also have clicked at some weird place. Well, if its very hard to reproduce it's a pretty harmless bug:)


Btw, I just had a Falcon activate escape burn drives after being flamed out, and still facing in the wrong direction. It ended up burning across the entire battlefield and escaping on the other side.

It did not work in the case where I tried it, but maybe there are specific conditions for that to be the case. I'll try it again later.

A couple little things:

The textures of fighters and bombers seems to be distorted - like they have severe jpeg artifacts - if they're coming from a ship with converted hangars. I turned off all my mods and this was still the case. The textures are fine from regular carriers.

I've been getting a ton of nebula class ships that I can salvage from debris fields. This might be intentional but it happens constantly, and I'm pretty sure sometimes from fleets that had no nebula class in them although I can't say that for sure.

Berserkers never show up in derelict battles. This one's an easy fix, it's just missing the derelict tag in the ship_data file.

Yep - that's an overlay that shows they're messed up. Same deal as ships with d-mods.

That should be fixed in the latest hotfix, RC10.

Yep, thank you - fixed this up in the dev version!

I'll keep an eye out - I wonder exactly how that happened. Doesn't seem like too big a deal, though.

Hmm, odd!

And just in case you din't see it in the other thread: I just fought and salvaged a Paragon with dedicated targeting core installed, additionally to the advanced TC. It get's deleted as soon as I change anything about hullmods, though.

Fixed up the remnant relay one just now; yep, saw the one about the Paragon!

Still need to go through the other stuff, though.

I've seen this before, usually it happens when I try to flame them out right after they activate the escape.  One side will get flamed out and then they'll turn around slowly as the AI tries to turn the ship the other way.  Eventually it just blasts across the battlefield and escapes on any side of the map.  It seems that if you get far enough off the map on any side your ship retreats.  (Burn drives into things that take you way off the edge are still hilarious in my book)
