Summary0011033: Bug causes allied minor faction ships to simply set on an empty planet and do nothing
DescriptionThis has bug has been around for awhile, I've just never gotten around to bringing it up.

Basically the issue is this: Allied minor faction ships have some kind of planet targeting system, and often times when no adjacent enemy planets fall into this category, they instead will just sit on a neutral planet (typically the one they were spawned at) for hours, doing absolutely nothing.

In my current game, there are over 100 allied minor faction units sitting on the Dyson planet, not doing anything.

I propose we add a trigger to the allied minor faction logic that, if they have nothing else to do, they go to the nearest allied planet and begin a patrol. Thank you. Save attached.

For 6.016:

* Fixed a longstanding (back to the beginning of Ancient Shadows) bug where some minor faction ships could get stuck on a planet's central point because they were trying to path to a nebula (but obviously could not actually do so).


After fixing that, I loaded the save back up and that clump of units proceeded to thoroughly clean the two adjacent AI planets, though they don't go further out than that (just bounce back and forth between those three planets, killing whatever reinforcements or SF show up).
