    I'm not sure what you're talking about, Pantheos. We didn't skip anything.

    As a side note, there were some typos and bugs related to turret point defence which are now cleaned up, Turn 1MP is now in place.

    So, is anyone getting turn-related emails? I got one when the EP was ready, but it didn't just send me one for the start of the new turn. Anyone else?

    It appears so. :p

    Me neither. :( Whether for the EP, nor for the new turn (MP).

    I think Panda is on vacation this week; I sent him an email directly telling him to put his orders in. All we can do is wait.

    Ha! I haven't had a chance to read the field report, but I'm 90% sure this means (looking at the code) someone just successfully point-defenced a missile... and I'm guessing it didn't go anywhere?

    Looks like the take_damage routine is unique to ships; forgot to give a top-level one to the indicator class (and so missiles, as a child of indicator, doesn't know how to take damage).

    Oops. Well this is easy enough to fix, sorry to whoever just shot a missile successfully and had it keep coming...


    edit:
    Ah, so what happened is that failure kicked in, so it gave up on the turn. Then when you refreshed, the game got to re-roll the dice; as you can see this time Reaper misses the missile, so the offending line of code never came up. The missile wizzes past, and smashes into Reaper.
    Sorry Pantheos: your ship was victim to a bug... anyway, it is fixed for next time this comes up (hopefully?) I wish I had better news, but this is the life of alpha testing! Just think, your 32hp sacrifice has protected generations of future fighters from broken point defence!

    So it claimed, I already sent in the movement phase orders for my last ship, even though I did not.

    I did a Shelton Slide to evade a missile if that's any help.

    Yep, I remember seeing that successful Shelton slide ("12 >= 12") in the field report... :D

    There's only a short time period where edits are permitted. I think it's something like two hours, though I could be wrong. If edits were permanently allowed, some people could say one thing, then come back and change their original post much later to say something completely different.

    :D If that isn't a great quote for "famous last words." :p

    I guess once there are only a few fighters left in game 3, we could start a game 4. ;) Also depends on how much time Avacar has on its hands, of course.
