|0027309||AI War 2||Bug - Gameplay||May 10, 2022 8:37 am||May 24, 2022 10:09 pm|
|Product Version||5.008 Xenophiles And Outguard|
|Summary||0027309: hostile to all nanocaust spawn near each other yet cannot kill hives|
|Description||This game I had a midgame invasion scheduled for two nanocaust and a marauder, all 3 hostile to all. The idea being that they would distract each other a bit as well as the ai and disrupt everyone.|
Instead what happens was the two nanocaust spawned right next to each other and one beat the other, then camped his hive but apparently unable to kill it. So, nanocaust effected nothing noone on the map.
So a couple issues to point out.
1. Nanocaust that aren't on the same minor faction or allied to the same ai, should not spawn nearly so close to each other.
2. Nanocaust should either ignore hostile hives, or be able to kill them. The combination of both those being false means they get stuck entirely. See screenshot.

It was just a ton of yellow nanos camping the other one's hive. Like you would see the ai doing with spire for example.
This same issue has happened again since this was reported.
We now always use immediate when using multiple nanos, which actually works perfectly, if they aren't allies they dont spawn together, so the hive immunity issue never comes up. It is only when they are invading later that they inexplicably pick the same spot. Surely one of them picks first and the second can avoid them?
||I think part of the issue is that one of the targeting priorities is set to "ignore me", in turn making it so that minor factions like other Nanocaust or in my case an overwhelming force of Dark Spire will simply camp the Hive until either they're overwhelmed or someone else kills it. Maybe it would be better to turn it into a powerful defensive structure and allow everyone to prioritize it?|
||I'm all for factions being able to kill each other, makes the game more interesting and them feel more full-agents.|
