    I've been playing AI-skirmish for the last few nights and before now not having frequent issues.. I get "server connection lost" on every game. It's about 30 minutes into the game. It happens after I create 10-12 unit cannons and fire them all at once. I fire them all at once, reload and fire again.. this or the next firing gives me a lost server connection. I also find it interesting that the radar view does not show the units going between planets anymore. I wonder if I am overloading something?

    I can reliably reproduce this.

    It's interesting that the game does not even show up to be replayed.

    It's a two metal planet system, 1v1 ai game on absurd.

    E8500 dual core @ 3GHz
    8G memory..
    Geforce 260/216 video (settings turned down) 384megs
    30/5 mbit internet connection.
    Windows 7 64 bit

    @devoh sounds like the server is crashing, which is why you can't see a replay. I take it you can't reconnect?

    Ya I don't see any reconnect options.. It's probably a new feature of the AI.. it's like "Oh ****!! an invasion force of 432!" and it dumps core in it's pants :D heheheh (Hey a guy can dream!)

    So, changes to dox are only acceleration and turn speed?

    I expected slightly bigger nerf, I hate those buggers early game :\

    I think vision changed on an earlier build as well.

    I don't find them bad at all, you just need to defend your expansions with tanks and/or turrets

    Yeah exactly. They are a little less good at dancing, they have lower vision range and turrets are cheaper.

    Well they're already pretty badly outclassed by tanks- to the point there are now viable all tank strategies but an all bot strategy is pretty much suicide. Imo they didn't really need a nerf in the first place. Any more and we will be back to the early Beta tank, tank, tank builds again :p

    I think a big part of that is that half of the units in the bot factory are currently useless.

    Since I cannot like posts more than once, You'll have to live with the likes I'm giving this post, as a replacement for the double/triple/quadruple/quintuple likes I'd have given the OP by now.

    You're thread title needs to be edited to reflect the new build version for us perfectionists!

    Testing the new PTE (offline) and the server crashed when the pods from two unit cannons hit the ground (I guess it was the second pod that crashed the server). I just selected two unit cannons and ordered both to send the units at the enemy base.. Playing offline agains the AI (normal) in a system with two small planets.

    Btw, the new animations and effects on the unit cannon are great =DDD

    New "gunboat" model:[​IMG][​IMG]

    EDIT: Okay one more thing. Could the T2 naval be scaled back up just a little bit? The cannons look a bit pathetic now. I think 25% was a bit too much of a reduction. I didn't like it when the Leveller and Sheller were scaled down too (but the newer Leveller model is nicer), but I really like the idea of naval being kind of like T1.5 and T2.5 (or at least the big T2 ships like the battleship being at least as expensive and scary as the largest T2 land units, like the 1500 metal Vanguard), so I think it's important that the T2 boats look a bit more threatening?
