IMPORTANT NOTE IF you had a base attack where the zirax used the hacking tool INSTANTLY, please 1. Add a screenshot of the base (location/surrounding) 2. Add the blueprint of your base Optional to 1+2 (giving us the most exact way to reproduce your findings): add the savegame! As there are a million of different situations, debugging AI in this context is next to impossible with written reports only. ===== NOTE: for anyone testing the new BASE ATTACK SCENARIO please use this thread for dedicated feedback, as we also want your thoughts on the setup and other factors: https://empyriononline.com/threads/alpha-10-exp-base-attack-scenario.49334/ ===== OVERVIEW Previously, only Drones would attack your base, given some arbitrary rules, like activating the first generator or placing a turret. Starting with Alpha 10, the rules that lead up to a base attack, are much more granular and fully tied to the NPC Faction system. Long story short: For Alpha 10, the Zirax will attack you with drones AND ground troops, if you manage to pi** them off too much. This basically means: building a big fat base right in front of their noses and rising the hostility, will most likely trigger an appropriate response. And you better make sure your defenses are up and running, because the drones got more punch and the troopers will not only be able to blast through your walls, but will also attempt to capture your base with their remote hacking devices. Because we wanted you to not wonder why exactly an attack happened right now, we added a new INFO in the STATISTIC screen. If your threat level rises above a certain percentage your base will see a Zirax assault team forcefully knocking at your doors. _Please note_ While you can be hostile with Polaris and Talon, both factions do not have a base attack yet. While the Talon attack has already seen some dev time, the Polaris will be added in one of the next major iteration of the base attack module.
