|0024301||AI War 2||[All Projects] Bug - Gameplay||Jan 3, 2021 4:16 am||Jan 4, 2021 6:47 pm|
|Product Version||2.712 Civilian Pause|
|Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0024301: Galaxy preview not always updated when setting up a custom game|
|Description||When I set-up a custom game (custom start) and play around with the galaxy settings the preview on the right side is sometimes not updated. At least not when doing the changes too fast.|
1. "Reset To Defaults" --> Correct preview on the right side
2. Set Planet Layout to "Small Circular" --> Preview is updated
3. Set Planet Layout back to "Rectangular" --> Preview is NOT updated
I can avoid that by always waiting several seconds before changing something again.
This is on a fast PC, so PC performance shouldn't be the problem.
Also: When applying "Reset To Defaults" the field for Planet Layout is not set back to Rectangular (although the preview shows a rectangular layout).

||It tends to be slow when updating the planet layout. Not sure what's causing it. Perhaps the debug log has clues?|
> Perhaps the debug log has clues?
Very good point! Below is the part from the log which belongs exactly to the three steps I used for my example in my report. The last line shows the problem: It seems the last mapgen call was skipped because it was assumed as being "substantially the same" as the one before. But this is wrong. I have changed a setting again, so the mapgen call should have been triggered again.

||I've had this issue too. I always figured that that was what the regenerate button was for.|
