Planets seen at unexplored areas

#1 Post by defaultuser » Fri Nov 04, 2016 4:15 am

Playing 0.4.6 stable.

Came across an odd situation. Off out of scanning range, a bunch of Unexplored systems can be seen. When clicked on, instead of just seeing a ? I get a faint look at the planets there. See screenshot.

Y'know we keep finding things we forgot to put into the Changelog?

You're playing Trith, right?

If you're not, there's a bug.

Trith now have Telepathic Detection, they know where all that horribly psychic pain is coming from—we introduced the basic ability to reveal stuff so I thought it'd be a good plan to reduce the Trith basic detection range but let them know where inhabited worlds are, I like it, it's cool. They now make for an interesting choice of crew for scoutships, Laenfa can see further but Trith can detect more, it's within X jumps, possibly 5, so starlane setting will make a difference.

No, Egassem. I have captured some Trith worlds and there are Trith-crew ships fairly nearby.

That would be it then.

Need to document this better, how clear is it in the species description?

"Telepathic Detection: can sense nearby populated planets."

Ok, this time you can't blame Trith. There aren't any in the game at all.
