|0023743||AI War 2||[All Projects] Gameplay Issue||Sep 15, 2020 12:21 pm||Sep 25, 2020 7:25 pm|
|Product Version||Beta 2.506 ExternalData Overhaul Two|
|Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0023743: Multiplayer: only one planet counting as a human homeworld for scouting and planet seeding?|
|Description||Based on reports from Puffin and Democracy. |
This is not super surprising, it's one of those things that I should be able to test myself and verify correct without needing a lot of tester data.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Tried this a bit more.
Our first attempt to cause an oddity, an AI Homeworld was very close to Democracy, who was the host. Every attempt after, the AI Homeworlds were normal looking. The theory of the client not being counted as a homeworld seems to be ruled out, as the AI Homeworld would've spawned next to me instead, as far away as it can be from the "only player Homeworld" far as it would know. Image of this result is attached. In this, I am on the far right (off the screen), in an attempt to force such a thing.
Also unable to reproduce any case of a MK4 planet spawning directly next to a planet Homeworld. Starting capturables, neighbour Mark levels, all were fine.
Starting on a Spiral Snake, me at one end, Democracy in the middle roughly, me destroying AI Command Stations was scouting planets near both of our locations, seemingly fine.

That AI Homeworld might be perfectly legitimate. I had a strange spawn, on a smaller galaxy with 2 AIs, where a Homeworld was rather close and blocking the only path. Checking the logic/rules in the code, it was a valid location to be, even if visually it looks very wrong.
Also check DetermineAiHomeworlds.
(Notes to self)
