Summary0012985: Dire Guardians don't count as "massive ships" for warning in top-left corner
DescriptionSo I played an FS game, got my first city shard, made a colony ship with it, and built the hub. Several seconds later, I was confused because the expected notification of the response exo ("N massive ships are inbound to your planets") was absent. I went to the galaxy map, checked the planets with threat on them, and found the incoming exos groups led by Dire Guardians.

Can be replicated with the attached save.

I suppose fixing this might result in undesired warnings with DGs spawned from lairs?

There is no such thing as an undesired Dire Guardian warning. I'd want to be warned of them regardless of whether they're part of an exo or were spawned by a lair.

Considering Spirecraft get the warning, which are much weaker, it seems really odd (and annoying). Some Dire Guardians are stronger than Golems, for goodness sake!

An earlier game of mine:
*1 massive AI ship(s)(32 strength) en route to your planets*
me: LOL, 32 strength? What is that, a mk I Spirecraft? I don't even need to supervise this one. Git gud, AI
(the AI spawned a Dire Raider Guardian)

While I suppose being more attentive would prevent this from being a problem, losing due to an unexpected lack of information is bad, regardless of circumstances.
