Possible error in turn

This topic thread is for any issues with turns that you are having, such as garbled printouts, etc. should be posted here. This will help us address problems and glitches with email, etc. We will also post suggestions here for fixes to specific issues.

This is not a gripe board, this is a troubleshooting board. Don’t just say “My turn didn’t work.” be as specific as possible. That way we can work together to fix the issue and make the game better for everyone.

Possible error in turn

Postby Framis » Thu Mar 10, 2022 10:08 am

I gave the following sequence of orders to a fleet (orders 2 to 5 of the turn on 3/4/22):
- AC 2 move to a planet
- AC 3 build 3 carriers onto the fleet
- AC 77 build fighters onto the fleet
- AC 73 put up CAP

The first two worked. The AC 77 failed with the message:
Fleet 148 drive engines are inoperative

The AC 73 failed with the messages:
0 Fighter(s) assigned to Cap on Fleet 148
Fighter Group Commander of Fleet 148 reports 0 Fighter(s) now on Cap.
Fleet 148 drive engines are inoperative

I repeated the 77 and 73 orders this turn and got the drive engines error again.

Any idea on what's up?

There is a pointer problem with the fleet. Engines go inoperative when the pointer link has been corrupted. It is a fail-safe so you don't lose ship data.contact Thom or me through email with the fleet number and your player ID number. We will take a look and correct the problem.
