Very interesting 3.0 bug...

Post by Old Man Johnson » Wed Mar 23, 2005 1:12 am

If you hit "End Turn" (or Spacebar while you have the main window selected) while a turn is already taking place, it will act like another turn has passed. This means nothing for you personally, since your reactions are too slow, but the computers turn again and their missile launchers recharge. This means that if you hold it down, the computers turn crazily and spray missiles machine-gun style.

Here's an example from the demo mission. All these Plectrons are fired by a single Weasel in 2 "turns".

And if you want to make a quick escape in 3.0, just hyperspace and hammer end turn as fast as you can! You'll hyperspace before missiles can even reach you!
