|0019861||AI War 2||[All Projects] Bug - Gameplay||Jul 26, 2018 6:09 am||Aug 7, 2018 12:36 pm|
|Product Version||0.756 Retrieval of the Lost Arks|
|Fixed in Version||0.759-0.760 Only The Start of Discovery|
|Summary||0019861: Arks don't upgrade - Engineers ignore them, symbol remains same, nothing changes|
|Description||Tried it on every current Ark - Voidhome doesn't get to build anything, as an example. |
Neither do their stats change, not even MK level.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
||Weirdly, it often will take the arks a While to upgrade and I'm not sure why. How long did you give it to do the upgrade?|
Huh, eventually Voidhome upgraded. I wasn't tracking time when testing them, so I started a new game and did it there.
Unlocked every upgrade at 7 minutes, became MK2 at 13 minutes, MK3 at 25, MK4 at 39 (unlocks dock function). Doesn't upgrade anywhere beyond MK4, despite unlocking the tech, even 2 hours into a game.
As a note, the Ark points thing is somewhat meaningless currently, you can get enough to fully upgrade the ark just by clearing two planets by your homeworld, without destroying the command station.
||Does the dock function work?|
||Yes, just acts as a normal space dock.|
Great! Chris, any chance you want to investigate the weirdly slow upgrade process for Arks? Hah, you'd already assigned it to me for the same reason. I'm pretty busy the next few days so it will just have to wait
For upgrades, there's not a great mechanism right now to report an ugprade in process. What happens is this.
foreach metal flow, check what it's purpose is
If there are any units that require upgrading, see if we have the money in this flow to upgrade it. If so, then do the upgrade. If not, store Metal in the flow until we have enough to upgrade the next thing. It's a bit more complex of course, but that's the gist of it.
Which is fine and functional logic, but it means there's no obvious way to let a unit know how far along it is in upgrading. The metal is stored in a per-faction object, and there's no obvious way to tell that we are actually saving up to upgrade the ark instead of something else. I could put a message saying "The ark is upgrading. Please be patient" but it sucks not to be able to give people a real way to understand how long it will take.
Chris, your opinion?
||Chris changed all this logic|
