Summary0026086: Tractors Don't Drag Units
DescriptionAs the summary says. Needs further testing to see what all is affected, but currently this affects the player necromancer at least. Attached is a save, use fleet 1 to go to planet Daring. This planet has 2 Warden Tractor Guardians on it.

The beams will show and the tooltip will say the skeletons are tractored, but do not get dragged along if the guardians move away.

Note: It appears that neinzul tractor beams are affecting the ai, so it needs further testing to see what all is being affected.
TagsNo tags attached.

Edited since it seems that units do in fact get stopped when tractored, but they still do not get dragged.

if you have units with tractors, can you drag enemies?

Nope, the player cannot drag enemies either. Just made a new game with the Minelayer Defenses (for the Ensnarer Battlestation), hopped into an ai world, snared stuff, and hopped out. nothing came with me.

okay, this is a generic bug then, not specific to necromancer

Thanks!

* Fixed a one-line typo where I had broken the ability for ships to drag other ships with tractor beams in my recent performance improvements to tractor beams.
** While I was at it, also made units with a lot of shielding a bit more willing to drag off units they have tractored, since that's a fun mechanic.
