Possible missile bug??

sometimes when i fire a missile(s), it travels much faster than normally and seems to "skip."

There was one instance where i fired an orik directly at a static fuel depot, and it glitched like that and the missile traveled straight through the depot without exploding.

anyone know why this is/how to correct it?

i bought the game on Mar. 13 of this past year, so i have a fairly recent version.

It's a known glitch. Sometimes it happens to me a bunch of times in one day, and some days I never see it happen. Hopefully it will be addressed in an incremental update, or as part of a larger update in the further flung future.

Well I know that missiles often completely disappear in very large battles (100+ ships), perhaps the bug is related to this.

But in very large battle, if missile disapear, they make damage.

Not from what i've seen. Last time I played a very large battle, with a ship using 4 launchers, 3 of those missiles fail to launch continuously until at least half the ships have been destroyed - no launch sound effect even, just a long delay when the first three should have fired, then the fourth comes out. It's difficult to tell actually whether the missiles are moving and invisible, or they simply disappear. I lose the ammo as well :cry: :cry: :cry:

I tink that it is random. Some missile disapear, but some where just invisible.
