Summary0021211: Shared vision for 'Ally With AI' option
DescriptionI had been under the impression that if you played with the 'Ally With AI' option on, you would share the vision of the AI. However, this doesn't seem to be the case, but I think it should be since the mode is suited to your taking on a passive observer role rather than an active one. Besides that, there are problems with the active role, like your inability to explore since that would require destroying your allied AI's command stations to effect the exploration needed to warp past the initially revealed systems.

At least in the cases of the initially explored systems, you share active vision with the AI's systems there but it still has the dark and grainy effect which normally indicates your not having active vision of the system in question.

Some other problems I've encountered with the mode so far (based on the idea that the passive observer role should be the status quo for this mode):
-The Marauder faction can send waves to attack your home system.
TagsNo tags attached.

This mode is literally just "You and the AI are allied". If there are hostile marauders or Dark Spire or other such factions, they will still attack you. This is more of a hack to make it easier for people to play in Observer Mode while I figure out what makes the most sense for that mode ;-)

I'll give you vision of everything for the next release, though in the meantime you can use the Debug: Scout All cheat.

Cool, I didn't know about that workaround so I'll use that in the meantime.
