|0021006||AI War 2||[All Projects] Bug - Gameplay||Mar 11, 2019 2:11 pm||Mar 22, 2019 1:23 am|
|Product Version||0.816 Aggressive Busting and Stacking|
|Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0021006: Artillery golem prioritizes the wrong targets?|
|Description||I attacked a planet with carrier starships, and the enemy artillery golem wasted several shots on the drones produced by my starships.|
I then captured an artillery golem myself and tested it against some carrier guardians, with similar results.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
||Maybe there should be an XML tag like engine damage as priority, except for high health as priority. Then in the absence of high mass targets it would still sort the units by how much hp they have.|
That sounds a bit hacky, wouldn't it be cleaner to automatically ignore expected overkill damage when looking at potential targets?
In any case the carrier starships have 5tx mass, enough to trigger the damage bonus.
I think all things being equal, a unit should try to not dramatically overkill targets with their shots. Maybe something like "decrease my desire to shoot a unit if the shot would do 2x that unit's health", or "if (damage > unit's total health) Importance /= (damage/total health)". So if a shot would do 3x a unit's total health, divide the desire to shoot that unit by 3.
If a unit is going to be doing tons of damage from each shot, don't waste it.
||Any chance someone has a save game sitting around that would let me test changes in this area?|
It wasn't laying around really, but there was an artillery golem next to a world on one of the saves I abandoned.
I also happened to maybe see two different bugs in passing, so that works for me too. Maybe if I report enough bugs I'll be able to win a prize.
