Yeah, black hole machines can stop transports. If the transport gets crippled it should be allowed to leave though.

I noticed that. I had another transport get disabled en-route and it could leave.

Given what you said...is it intended that BHM stop transport movement? They didn't used to.

It got changed on March 26th. The reason is because they were kinda useless if they didn't actually stop you from leaving.

"Black Hole Machines affect units of engine gx 20 and lower, rather than 14. Crippled units can now leave regardless, preventing possible softlocks. Flagship engine gx reduced slightly to be affected."

umm...whoops. I missed that in the patch notes. Didn't help that I misread the tool tip either.

Drat...

I'll mark as "no change required". Sorry about that. Feel free to update/remove as warranted.

Or maybe I won't. Mantis doesn't like me. :(

I'll let you "masters of Mantis" do as you see fit.
