Summary 0023004: Fallen Spire Exo Forces don't know how to handle victory.
Revision Mar 12, 2020 8:51 am by Lord Of Nothing
Description I've noticed that sometimes when Fallen Spire exogalactic strikeforces successfully defeat a city, they don't know what to do next- they just stay stuck on their order to attack the city hub, and so they just sit on the planet in rings around the hub ordered by range. It might be reasonable for them to stay guarding the planet to prevent a rebuild, rather than making an even nastier death spiral for the player by pressing the attack onto other worlds, but they don't really even do that - they just sit there even if the player is actively retaking the planet and mopping up other AI ships / bombarding them from outside their range.

The latter behaviour can be observed on Fever in the attached save.
