Does campaign retreat work?


#1

I had a cruiser and two frigates that were only slightly losing. I thought I’d retreat and return with a larger fleet in the next turn.

My ships retreated after two minutes but disappeared off the campaign map! :frowning:

I’ll now have to rule the universe with my strike fighters!


#2

I also noticed if the battle is a draw (no clear winner) then I “lose” and my fleet also disappears. :frowning:


#3

if ships cant retreat within 2 minutes,theyre lost
personally i didnt have a problem with retreat yet… atleast i didnt notice any ships missing


#4

The ‘problem’ with disappearing ships seems to be this: If there is more than one way ‘off’ a planet, the fleet can retreat in any direction, even to a hostile territory. Each fleet seems to make this decision seperately, so with four fleets, you could have 1, 2, 3, or 4 of them make it back safely, or not. If a fleet retreats to a hostile planet, it just disappears. Stupid captains.


#5

my fleets always automatically retreated to either the planet they came from or to a adjacent friendly planet, must be your local problem


#6

It’s mostly working now. Most curious.


#7

Do you have version 1.48 or later?


#8

Says full 1.49 but Ignore my 2nd post in this thread - I was in the red when the battle timed out so technically I lost and my fleet should have been wiped out.

See my other thread - I’ve created a nice bug list for you. :slight_smile:

Enjoying the campaign. :slight_smile:
