NPC Crew Members De-Leveling

Post by GwaziMagnum » Wed Nov 01, 2017 7:09 pm

----------------------------
Bug Report
----------------------------
OS: Windows 7
Game Version: Beta 16.2
Date and Time Encountered (DD/MM/YY, HH:MM (12h format)): 01/05/2017 7:02 PM EDT
----------------------------
Possible Conflicting Software (such as firewalls and anti-virus): AI Records?
Severity: Rather severe as you reach later in play.
Description of Bug: When you reload an old save game, or remove and re-add an AI Crewmember they will lose some of their level ups compared to the rest of the crew, leaving them several talent points before. Though since the Crew all levels up at once, they still level up just as slowly as everyone else (so no means of regaining lost Talent points).
Steps to Reproduce: Remove and add an AI squadmate. End a session and reload said session.
Possible Workaround: Use fully Human Crews.

You reported exactly what I reported here: http://forums.pulsarthegame.com/viewtop ... =13&t=4034

I also think it very severe and needs to be fixed before anything else. As I said in my post, I would not recommend this game to anyone until this is fixed.

UPDATE

A few hours later when we jumped systems the game suddenly ended because "something unexpected happened". The game didn't crash, the ship just blew up. Our pilot thinks maybe we warped into something?

Anyways, we pulled our most recent autosave once that happened, and when we did so the AI's talent points were back to being the same as the rest of us.

I wouldn't go that far.
It's a balance concern, but the game is still plenty enjoyable with a lot of stuff to do.
Besides, it's a problem that becomes less of a problem the more human players you have in your crew.

There is a lot to do, but I would go that far as sometimes you cannot find a crew or they all want mics or some other restriction.

I will try an auto save and see if it helps.

Should be fixed soon
