Summary0027677: Zenith Dyson Sphere Considered a Spire Sphere and Achievement not Working
DescriptionApparently, the hacking options have changed from a while ago. When I try to hack the Zenith Dyson Sphere in this save, I was unable to trigger the achievement. Also, when I constructed a logistical command station, the Zenith Dyson Sphere doesn't get antagonized. It's supposed to get angry at me when I try to capture it. I don't think there's anything in the debug log to indicate this. I have attached the save for easy access to the Zenith Dyson Sphere.
TagsNo tags attached.

Will take a look at this, haven't seen the Achievement code before, might be due to it still checking for the old hack's name.

Unrelated to the Achievement code, all Dyson Spheres have the same new (as of the Sphere Wars update) aggression mechanic, where they only get upset at a military presence rather than planet ownership. Zenith in particular are the most forgiving of the Sphere types.

How well documented is this behavioural change for the Zenith Dyson? Perhaps we could improve it

The achievement now works, even with the spire spheres. I can think of two ways to address the Zenith Dyson sphere: change the description to match its current behavior (preferably, just note that it's not planet ownership they're upset about, it's excessive military presence on their planet), or revert its behavior back to its original one.
