I’ve encountered a bug with the Warp Gate speed bonus that may be related to the way adding a gate gets processed in a turn-based game when you’re the last person to Submit orders.
Just before the turn ran, I added gates between two stars 18 hours apart at normal speed, 6 via a gate. My carrier began that leg with 6 hours left in an 8-hour turn, so it should have arrived at the star. Instead, it’s 12 hours out, with no speed boost.
When I use the Ruler to check the timing, it says ETA Base Speed: 12 hours. It also says ETA Warp Speed: 12 hours. The Gates display properly, but the bonus doesn’t.
In a similar thread from years ago, someone asked if the bugged gate was added right before the Tick in a real-time game. In this game, I was the last one to Submit my turn, and I added the gate right before submitting. Is it possible that the gate didn’t ‘take’ in the processing, even though it was recorded as being in place on that star?
