Enemies attacking each other

Post by Mr. Morague » Mon Feb 19, 2018 11:36 pm

----------------------------
Bug Report
----------------------------
OS: Windows 10
Game Version: 17.2
Date and Time Encountered (DD/MM/YY, HH:MM (12h format)): 19/2/2018
----------------------------
Possible Conflicting Software (such as firewalls and anti-virus): None.
Severity: Minimal-Medium
Description of Bug: Ships will rarely attack each other, even if they are allies. Encountered only while cloaked in the Stargazer, both becoming cloaked before and while warping but not after warp. Notable examples found include Slapdash & Torch, phase drone groups, and shock drone groups.
Steps to Reproduce: Unknown, potentially differeing interactions with the cloaking system.
Possible Workaround: Do not cloak until warped into a sector.
----------------------------
Screenshots and/or Video: N/A at this time.
----------------------------
Notes: It is possible it might be a coding error that causes an enemy ship to detect the player ship long enough to target (A), but when the ships register the player ship as cloaked (A) would immediately turn into their allies.
----------------------------
Unidentifiable Wall of Text detected.

Thanks for the report, sorry for the issues

I'll look into how entering cloaked might be affecting enemy ship behavior as you mentioned, it's quite possible there's some quirk with how they are detecting ships

Thanks again for the detailed report
