*** OPTIN Released 1/18/2021 ***
I was looking for something to do this afternoon, and I found this. Good timing.
I love your bug lists, thank you for putting it together.
I try to do as much as possible to get information about a problem before reporting it. This includes getting saves just before the problem occurs or that show the problem so whoever is working on fixing bugs doesn't have to try to find them. It isn't always possible, so I try to provide as much information as possible to make it easier to find the bug. I don't believe it helps to make posts like this: "Hey Stardock! [name of feature] is broken!! FIX IT!!!" I've seen a few posts like that.
I then try to keep a list of bugs that I find most annoying and post it occasionally. This consolidates all the information in posts I have made into one document.
I left these two out of my latest list.
1. AI ships are obsessed with attacking the drones/fighters/whatever they are that are automatically generated at planets when the right conditions are reached. The ieasiest way to see this is to play as the Iconians and start wars with the other races.
2. AI ships end their turn after combat, even if they have moves left. This is best seen when an AI ship attacks any object protected by ships or when an AI ship attacks asteroid mines. This means an AI ship will make one attack, then quit.
The report on the vibrating icons is interesting. It shows there can be a big difference between finding a bug, finding out what is causing the bug and fixing the bug.
Enough commenting. The opt-in has been downloaded for a while. Time to test it.
