Update went in today. It wasn't everything I m working on but its been almost 2 months and I need to push what I have.

  • Contract bug involving negative quantities should be corrected. That’s to Titan Industrial for setting up a repeating situation.
  • Escorting fleets should now pay the attack cost like everyone else.
  • Clicking on a product that is cargo on a unit that is carried on another unit should no longer crash.
  • The mysterious “units ejected due to hangar capacity” message that would hit people who have random ground groups should be gone now.
  • I’m fairly confident the bug where you get a special quest ship and it would have no location should eb fixed now.
  • Orbitals were not repairing automatically like they should. This was actually hotfixed weeks ago,.
  • Research Centers that were on Halt Production should no longer still apply their Overcrowding penalty to everyone else.
  • All The hostile events had some bugs fixed. There have always been problems with the events not being created and/or the units not all despawning when an event was over. Their Bounty payout is now set to 20% of their net worth and nothing if they aren’t destroyed by the time event is up. Eventually I will make the non-destruction payout have some payout that scales also. I am also working on some ideas to make them more challenging for the big corps.
  • Monoliths are now size 300, Motheships 500. The “Size” layout for combat should handle sizes up to 1000 now.
  • MAK Drones now attack as Variteks.
  • There is a new MAK Gunwing which is a 10x stack of MAK Gunships. It’s not an obtainable unit. Although one day you may be able to combine 10 ships into a wing permanently.
  • Commando’s damage has been reduced across the board and damage against commandos has been increased. They are still by FAR the best unit to use to invade structures but were a TAD overpowered for the money.
  • There is now a limit to Megastructures providing political score bonuses. You will only get political score bonus for the top 10 highest scoring Megastructures.
  • The political score bonus for Rulership of Cities/Planet/ Systems has been increased from 20/35/50 to 25/50/100.
  • The Logistics cost of all your units is now displayed in two places. The Accoutning Tab >> Military Report and on the Assets page >> Military Side Tab. It may be a little off what your assets page says at the top due to fractions. Something I will try to correct. For reference Logistics is the level of the ground unit OR the size of the Ship/Unit divided by 10 for everything else. There are few exceptions. Orbital guns level like a ground unit, Mobile fortress also.
  • Attackers attack cost is now 10x normal upkeep. Defenders now have a different “Defend Cost” also which is 2x their upkeep. However, a defenders defend cost scales down with the attacking forces Military power. So if you are attacked with a force that is 0.002% of your defending power, you will only pay 0.002% of your normal cost. This should prevent “Suicide Bombing” attacks to drain someone of cash.

There is still a bug with Convoys that attack the same location at the same time getting duplicate “empty” battles which still cost money. I will try to get that fixed by next week. Don’t attack big events with multiple convoys in the meantime.

I really want to get a direct Guild bank Deposit into the game also as a holdover until some more robust guild features are in place. It’s the top of my to do list.

Great update and love it, that the Machines are finaly attacking.
There is a new bug though.
We just removed the Alien Mothership from Centauri IV, battle 47901.
Instead of 3.25b reward, we got much less.
It seems to be 20% from the sum that was written in the event.
Think now the event shows the net worth of the hostiles and not the reward.
