Hello everyone,
I'm seeking the help of experienced players as it seems I'm unable to invade a planet.
I suppose I forgot something essential but can't find what.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions

EDIT: the answer was: In the design, "Invasion" must not be set to "Do not invade"


Description of the problem:
Step1: my combat fleet jumps to the enemy planet and kills enemy spaceships
Step2: I bring a transport ship full of troops
Step3: I right-click the enemy planet to order the invasion
Consequence: nothing happens (just the "beep")

1) Generic information
- steam version of the game (1.9.5.10) Nothing in the beta changelog suggests that .11 or .12 would change a thing
- Playing : the Dhayut
- target : the human civilization (current relationship: at war)

2) my ship (size 298):
- Design: 2 basic space reactors, 1 command center, 4 corv. shields, 1 velocitydrive (racial hyperspace), 2 standard fuel, 2 direc thrusters, 4 hab modules, 4 life support, 8 prot thrusters, 16 std troop compartments.
- fuel remaining: ~35

3) troops inside my ship (2000/2080):
- 2*infantry
- 2*special forces
- 8*armored forces

4) planet I'm trying to invade
- continental planet (I don't think it matters for invasions, but I've already researched continental colonization)
- belongs to my enemy
- population: human 29M
- facilities: none

PS in case a dev reads this post: I really love your game.

I can't check out the savegame right now, however one reason for this behaviour that comes to mind is that the invasion setting for the troop transport (under the flee when setting in the ship designer) was set to never by mistake.

Starts distant worlds

loads game
looks at design.
...
Epic facepalm.
...
edits design
orders invasion
Invasion valid
Pauses the game
Writes a post-it: "Never again create a troop ship design based on a passenger ship design"

Thanks a lot.

Lol - I've had this sort of issue before where I was trying to invade the wrong target people (similar color) - so my fleet would just beep instead. lol - finally figured out I'd declared war on the wrong party! My diplomats were ... not amused.
