Dear Imperators,

to achieve a more fair and predictable game behaviour, the gpu handling of relocated ships will be changed.

Definition:
Relocated ships are ships, which are moved to the next friendly planet, when their current location becomes unfriendly, for example due to a change in the hierarchy of players.

This "catapult mechanism" is currently being used to precisely relocate large fleets in zero-time, a "feature", which was not intended.

Therefore, we will implement the following change:
All relocated ships face a certain possibility of destruction during this forceful relocation due to the massive transition shock. See formula below.

We hope to implement this feature in about one month and will inform you afterwards.

Bye,
Maelstroem
Laola

Hi,

due to some constructive discussion on kosmor.de, the proposed formula will be slightly altered:

Code:
shipLoss% = (RelocationDistance / 120) rounded down * 3
maxShipLoss% = 75


Justification:
* 100% loss seems to be quite extreme, therefore we will cap this at 75%
* The best ship drives will allow for 120 LY travel per turn. There should not be any loss at all below that distance.

Bye,
Maelstroem
