A couple of bugs...

1)There was a bug in critical mass 3 that let you remove all command points from a ship and it still exists. Its a funny bug really, as a ship with no command points dies first missile hit. If you fill a side with sensors (or anything for that matter) and then shift the command point from the front to the side, it disappears!

2)You can do a U-turn! Its true, if you move the arrow around enough eventually theres a spot where it becomes a U-turn! The ships very good at doing U turns, but due to the nature of this move, it doesn't take a genius to work out how unbalancing it could be
note- the U turn is exceptionally hard to get beyond the first turn its roughly right at the center of the ship, where the arrow is. Im doubtful if its possible unless your flying exactly straight, e.g on the first few turns, so not that unbalancing really.

P.S The forums could likely get clogged with bug reports, mainly mine :)
So I thought i'd just post all my bugs in one thread from now on.

The AI still needs some tweaking as well, im too often finding my self blasted by wingmen or watching enemy ships shoot each other.

I can't believe this, my wingman just emptied 4 plectrons into me killing me instantly!

Thats SOOO funny! I did both! Number one I did on accident once and couldn't find out WHY my ship kept vaporizing! LOL!
