|0028050||AI War 2||Bug - Gameplay||Oct 22, 2023 3:25 pm||Oct 26, 2023 7:56 pm|
|Product Version||5.571 Hotfix|
|Summary||0028050: Threat calculation seems to ignore cloaked status|
|Description||I'm not sure if I'm interpreting what I see correctly but sometimes when a cloaked transport causes all guard posts to release their guards and "escape".|
I thought that it happens "sometimes" based on relative strength between my ships and enemy ones, so I tried to reproduce the scenario.
In attached savegame move transport 1 to Guha and wait around 10 seconds: you'll see all guards released. At first it seems nothing happens, just wait a bit longer.
While I understand the logic when a transport is fully visible, if the transport is cloaked it should not be calculated.
ps: I activated the debug log and found that when it happens the following line is logged:
"TID30 retreat threat on Guha going after Angelo"

||FYI this is intentional. Other examples include the fact that cloaked ships are still susceptible to black hole generators, they still trigger Alarm Posts or Raid Engines, etc.|
||@StrategicSage, I understand cloacked ships outside of transports, but in my case is a fully loaded cloaked transport, so AI should not be able to "see" the transport or strength of ship inside it, unless decloaked.|
||For better or worse, the game doesn't care if they are in a transport or not, by design. An example of this in the player's favor is Stealth GPs, which you are still very much aware of being on a planet, just not the location specifically, even when they are cloaked.|
||Just posting again to add, as I forgot, in situations like Stealth GPs the player also knows *exactly* how much strength of enemy ships is on the planet, whether they are in the GP or not, and whether they are stealthed or not.|
