Infinite, unending battle bug
« on: November 02, 2019, 12:52:47 AM »

This is a really simple, but absolutely awful bug I just found.

Steps to replicate it:

1. Fight a very long battle wherein your flagship is reduced to an insanely slow speed.
2. Order everyone to retreat. Get frustrated at how slowly your flagship is retreating.
3. Transfer command from your flagship at the north end of the map to a ship retreating at the south end.

If all succeeds, your 'commander pod' will fly down to that ship, the last ship to retreat to on the map, right as they retreat. With your target gone, your commander will fly around in circles aimlessly forever. Since my flagship also got destroyed, I had no way to simply end the battle.

All the enemy ships are gone, as are mine. My commander is just flying around like a chicken with his head cut off. I have to just exit the campaign now, losing a solid 45 minutes of battle time. Sigh.
