Summary0025831: Game slows down and reports enormous numbers of errors
DescriptionGame generates large numbers of errors and slows down to barely-playable levels. Sometimes a reload fixes things for a while.

It also seems that the Dark Zenith Svikari are killing AI command stations/warp gates to generate AIP; is that intentional?

Looks like there's something wrong with randomization:

The svikari can and will destroy things and generate AIP if you have the appropriate game settings enabled.

Thanks!

* Added a new processing_group="Name" on faction definitions that is required.
** This allows us to aggregate "hey, am I allowed to run at the same time?" in the way we really need to. We had something like this before, but not enough.
** This in turn requires new xml in a new folder called SpecialFactionProcessingGroup, and that fills a SpecialFactionProcessingGroup object in the code, which is mostly used for LRP threading locks.

* UniqueNameForFactionToAvoidThreadConflicts has been removed, replaced with a reference to the faction's SpecialFactionProcessingGroup.

* Okay! This has been a problem for longer than I realized, as it turns out; it just has been more obvious in recent months.
** Essentially, the way we were handling factions that used shared resources for their "LRP processing" previously only attempted to not let them START in the same lrp sim cycle, but it was not preventing them from starting in multiple cycles and thus overlapping.
** Good grief, this was more untangling than expected. This SHOULD prove to be the end of any sort of "pathfinder already running" errors, but we'll have to wait longer and see if folks still run into it. I really don't think they will, knock on wood.
*** This should also solve any MersenneTwister.GenerateUInt issues, which are also basically an indication of a single randomizer being called by two threads at once.
