research crash program doesn't stop

Post by Anglachel »

I started a crash research to get the "fusion reator UX1000" After the new reactor was researched the program didn't stop. Now I have researched for more reactors and the crash program is still running. Even when I change it to another one it switches back.

Edit: Now all reactors are researched und the crash programm ist still running. Since there is no research in other fields with a running crash programm, my research is stuck...

Hey hey! I have EXACTLY the same problem. I think the problem only occures if you play the race with the unique reactor. But then it destroys the game. Tried editing with the editor, but cannot remove the crash order. Nice little bug!

ah... i got the tech by buying it when another empire offered it. i got a popup with "would you like to buy X for lots of money" and said yes.

mmm.... no wait... I crashed plasma thunderbolt MX... then I bought plasma thunderbolt MX as I described above from other other human empire... then it remained crashed on the shaktur firestorm... then somethimg made me get those, I don't remember what but i didn't buy them... then it was stuck researching none... so i went into the editor and removed shaktur firestorm from my known techs... so then it finish re-researching it and was worked around.

I take this as conclusive proof that reporting things doesn't work too well, because I reported this ages ago with exact steps of how to reproduce it, back BEFORE 1.03, and it was entirely ignored and never fixed.

2/3 of my reports result with "thank you, we were able to track it thanks to this save, we have fixed it for next version".

I think they just didn't see it.

Yeah, I hear that a lot, too. Then you go and report back saying it wasn't fixed, so...form mail responses don't exactly equal action.

I wouldn't be too fatalistic over issues going unanswered.

There are many duplicates.

There are lots of things that may be more of the 'wishlist' kind which probably is for later.

Other stuff may need verification when its unclear whether there is an actual issue or a misunderstanding about game mechanics. Or someone might be reporting from an old version (me, when I dare to). The occasional seemingly old issue cropping up, stemming from an incomplete fix, may look like something like this.

Then it is a lot of work to just take in everything. Acknowledging all issues, even if it is too early for them to handle them yet, may be too much. What with all the explaining, apologizing and getting involved into fruitless discussion this can lead to, over things they might have to sort out with themselves first.

That doesn't mean the feedback couldn't be better. But any developer should be extremely cautious about publishing anything like, e.g. to-do lists. These things are non-committal until actual work has started, but would be mistaken as promises by (part of) the public.

So I think the feedback we are getting is actually okay.

One can never be too fatalistic. After all, life itself is fatalistic: You're not going to survive.
