[4.20 B4] Xenon are broken (again)

Post by -=SiR KiLLaLoT=- » Wed, 1. Dec 21, 22:29

Greetings!

As soon as I heard about the beta 4 I rushed to try it.
Continuing my game, however, I noticed a sudden quiet there where just before there were endless wars with Xenon.
I sped up the game and saw that nothing changed. I have seen the economy of all factions slowly fade away...

I then loaded my Xenon gameplay save to see what happened and immediately noticed that every existing Xenon ship on the map has stopped attacking/advancing.
All Xenon fleets are in patrol or defend their stations. (Xenon behavior looks like version 1.0 :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: )

Here is the Xenon mode save.

Instructions:
Speed up time.
Observe that nothing happens.

Do you have a non creative save where this is happening?

Upon loading my save in Beta 4 I did notice a reduction in Xenon activity. However after continuing to play for a few hours everything seems to be back to normal with the Xenon sending 2 freshly built Branch 9 Destroyer Is at my Asguard in Matrix 9 as one would expect.

Possibly a transient from B3 migration? Either that or just coincidence as the Xenon do go through cycles of activity.

I tried 24 days vanilla save. In this save I have never used SETA.

Indeed, after a long wait (1 hour of s.e.t.a. internal time which would be 6 real hours I think?), I saw again some Xenon capital act.
After loading the save there was a period of inactivity, as Imperial God mentioned, which lasted about 50 min of SETA.

At this point I was able to observe the two Xenon behaviors seen in the different gamestarts.
There are large groups of Xenon ships concentrated in their defensive stations in zone protection and other smaller groups of ships (teams of one K and 10 fighters) advancing through the sectors.
I kept the SETA for another hour (so another 6 real hours) and I have seen this behavior repeat several times.

Here are the saves without and with two hours of SETA.

I think that all in all the behavior is acceptable, even if perhaps it would be better to advance some more capital.

While the custom gamestart Xenon behavior seems totally broken.
In the Xenon mode game (first save on top) I used the SETA for hours (real hours) and I haven't seen a single ship move.

Hope it helps!
