I’m in a game right now where I have an AI carrier jumping between two stars that are 9.338ly apart. The AI is only jump level 5, max of 7ly range. No player in the game has level 6 or 7. The star hasn’t changed hands or anything. I measured and confirmed the carrier is exactly 7.000ly along its path with 2.338 to go. There’s no other star in between. It’s a 100% impossible jump. Is this a thing others have seen before?
This bug has been known about for a while. Did a quick forum search, possibly the first known instance of it is this? AI jumps too far
OK, I’m content with knowing that I haven’t slipped into insanity. If the AI wants to make ridiculous jumps, fine.
it doesn’t happen that often but it does happen. you just have to remember the AI cheats.
I would too, if I could.
