|0025422||AI War 2||Bug - Gameplay||Jul 16, 2021 1:05 pm||Jul 23, 2021 1:03 am|
|Product Version||3.311 Engineer Multitasking|
|Summary||0025422: Drone construction is permanently halted|
|Description||Units that build drones no longer construct them. I checked the Marauder Outpost, the Combat Factory, the Rejuvenator Factory, and the Dyson Sphere Warp Gate.|
I wouldn't be surprised if it extends to all similar units.
|Tags||No tags attached.|

||I just checked the save and the two combat factiories were building drones with no issues. Do you see the same happening when loading this particular save? If the problem persists, could you share another save?|
I think the other save you were referring to didn't upload.
It turns out the 3.312 hotfix was out of beta for long enough for me to make a few saves in it yesterday.
Fortunately, changing versions is easy enough so after downloading the latest beta patch I decided to see if the error still exists. Yes.
I also noticed that of the latest two autosaves I have (which is before the manual save I uploaded) this bug is only present in the latest one (the bug isn't present in the 24 minute save or earlier saves, but it is present in the 30 minute save).

I just tried the 24m save, the factories were building drones. I ordered them to move to the next planet and unload, and when the drones started to drop in numbers, the factories wouldn't replinish them.
Trying again on the same save and on a test game I made, changing speed of the game seems to make appear "faster" the issue, but it could be totally unrelated.
The metal flows debug in the tooltip shows the same amount of flows before and after it stops, but the metal flow window shows no consuptions.
I'm on 3.313
||I guess the factories know that they need to build drones, but they stop doing that for some reason.|
Another thing I noticed in this save is that the costruction of drones always stops when the factory finishes building its combat engineers and sentry frigates. Just let the save run for 15-20 seconds and you'll see this happen.

||Right now, after playing a spire game (no mods) for 3 hours in a row, I haven't encountered this bug yet. It's a weird and dodgy bug.|
||Only the support factories seem to be able to build their drones and its only while they are building other ships. They aren't generating naturally on any of the AI's drone carriers.|
Support factories seem to be the only exception to not building drones, and then only sometimes.
I decided to check at which version of the game drone construction doesn't work for me any more. It turns out that starting at version 3.311 drone construction is broken at the start of a new campaign.
In version 3.310 drone production still happens like it should. In version 3.311, 3.313, and presumably 3.312 (I didn't check that one) drone production is broken.
I attached the saves at the start of the campaigns for all three versions.
Version 3 310 start.save (245,447 bytes)
Version 3 311 start.save (235,996 bytes)
Version 3 313 start.save (223,929 bytes)
I can also reproduce this issue. I've noticed (similar to how it has been described above) that drones will only replenish when other construction is taking place on the same planet. This can include a flagship building strikecraft, a turret being built, a factory under construction, etc. As long as some kind of construction is going on, the drones will build. However, as soon as there is no longer anything being built on a planet, drone construction halts. I've noticed this happening both to my combat factories, as well as a hive golem that I captured.
I've attached a save where this bug is happening to both the aforementioned unit types. I have the Civilian Industries, Kaizer's Marauders and AMU mods active in this save.
