phyroks -> [1.09.03b] cities/zones allow to play multiple cards of limited assets/artifacts (5/23/2021 5:25:36 AM)

After updating from 01 to 03b you can play more than 1 Automate Cloning Facility/Gravitonic Collector/Subterran Sensor on single town. I did not have more artifact cards but it seems all of them now ignore limits?

dont have cards for those so dont know, maybe? both cards should have notification saying the zone already has the asset, but artifact are not upgraded like those are.

Edit: After testing some more cards, it seems all cards under "zones" no longer check for limitations, you are also able to build multiple scientific outposts in single zone.

The actuall code that is in the if and set parts of Stratagems can only be changed by a new savegame.

That would mean the bug is in the code that is actually counting the amount/levels of a asset.

I noticed that with the zoo, it doesn't do anything if you play it besides use up the card / PP. If you play something like a gravity power generator, you actually get another gravity power generated in that zone, so you end up with two (and get the benefit of both).

Also are you saying it's not something that can be fixed with a patch; only with a brand new game?

I am saying the opposite - this should not be tied to a new game. The code that is executing the checks seems to be broken, so it can be fixed with a patch.

Then it must be a recent change since this was no the case in the past.

I think I see the issue, propably in the loading routines. For Cloning Facility the if logic is:
"che(249,11,ZONEID,3102)<1"
it should be "chk(249,11,ZONEID,3102)<1"

Huh? Is this game open source or something?

I turned on Debug Mode - that way I can see the data from the running game.

@zgr
Nice try. But "che" is an allias for "chk" :)

@anybody
If you can get me savefile to illustrate this i'll find out what is going on for the next patch. Please email it to vic@vrdesigns.net and link to this thread.

best wishes,
Vic

It would still work if it was simply the Alias that is broken, so the game would complain about that "che" thing being a unknown order [;)]

It would not be a issue if the alias works. But as the saying goes: "If - and only if!"

Given that we have at least 3 people observing this, it is likely to be a systemic issue.




Vic -> RE: [1.09.03b] cities/zones allow to play multiple cards of limited assets/artifacts (6/1/2021 2:44:46 PM)

Thanks for save files (JH, Christian)! Will be fixed upcoming patch.
