I been gone all weekend since my last post, just got back now... started up my game to finish it up (the Cards and Lurian's have about 10 planets each left to my 133) and as i started sortin threw my hsips to see if i was ready to end this game quickly enough without having to pause to recover or recuperate in between (I subjugated the Cards before i left) i ran into that pileup i mentioned about and figured i would put up the "evidence" not that i think you guys dont believe me, but just so we can all be clear of it's existance and it may somehow help get a picture of the problem.
I removed the gas mining station from this location at Vulcanis and they all stopped "patrolling" it, i then seletced them all and hit "AUtomate" and a seconds later they all dispersed in all directions to escort, patrol or kill something... if it pile sup again before or during my last Offensive to DOmina...err i mean, bring peace to the Galaxy i will let ya know.
Edit: Oh yes, and i double checked about 100 of the 884 ships here, they are all un-fleeted and the majority of them are Escorts (sabre) and Frigates (Defiant) with a good handful of Destroyers (Akira's), the rest of the non fleeted classes are in the mix also... i think it's safe to say according to the numbers that pretty well All unfleeted ships are in this cluster (my auto fleet ratio is set to 80% - my Current Military ship Count is just under 1,800)
Edit2: i let the game run in the background as i did this post and uploaded the image ect... they all have gathered in Vulcanis again after completing the misison they setout to do..there currently 400 circling (oddly) a early Mining Station now (not gas miner)... with a crap load of military icons conversing over VUlcanis from a number of Directions...presumably the rest of the 884 ships.
Edit3: Igard, i saved and put aside a copy of the games Save file for mygame right now before it gets overdone with a new game and all, if you would a copy to see this situation PM me your E-mail, Skype or other IM or something (files 25.7mb)
Edi4: Ok, I maked those 800+ ships into FLeets of about 50-100 and it seems to mostly be solving the issue when i just chekc back on the planet ever so often and reform any new non fleet ships into fleets, it's a decent temp fix for now.... however i am just finishing off the Lurians now, and redesigned a new Captialship with my new size increase and some new tech, i decided to make just 1 of these ships and have fun harassing the Cards as if it was a hijacked ship gone rouge on the cards :P. in my planet to planet harrassment, i stumbled upon the Card ships in much less numbers then 884, but in a similar issue...
I saw no Evidence of thise from any of thge other races during my game, but doesnt mean that it didnt exist and i just missed it.
