🙂 Okay , LadyAngie here with a big digihug for the creator of My Colony. Big stress reliever that game is. I am fixing to sign in to it and maybe get an online game going on My End. Wish Me loads of gl because I will need it. Brandon, Thank You for Your Help earlier. I was in full on panic mode before You responded.

Since this update, my current Primary world is experiencing issues. upon loading the game, some of my maps as seen in region view are entirely blue. the map MoonBase only works part of the time, the rest of the time I'm redirected to the Main Menu with a Corrupt file notification. Also regardless of which map I load any work I do on any map says it saves, but upon exiting and re-entering the game the work needs redone. everything pre 0.9.7 seems to operate without issue.

@bastecklein the right click and enter how many bots you want to build might need to be tweaked a bit. When entering in say 100 bots when you have say 100 robot factories it does not evenly split the load between them.

But other than that im enjoying the option to merge bots. I can finally build my ship maps without hassle lol

@HammerActual sometimes maps corrupt unfortunately the best thing to do is delete them and rebuild it. I would also do a virus scan of your computer it seems to be the common problem of lost maps.

The "split" is old thing. Before this update, you could use the bot Windows for order the drone (without open each building personal bot construction list). The resoult are pretty much the same. But, with big Number (1000-2000-5000 Bots order) the distribution to me seems uniform.

It dose not though. I just did 100 robot factories and built 100 drones and it didn't split everything evenly.

also bast your forum quoting of a quoted post seems bugged a bit.

@cry8wolf9

Yes, i know, the split is not 100% perfect, but Is old thing. Before this update, for make my usually 1000 drone, were required minimum 1000 clic in the turbo drone icon, with aroud 100-120 robot factories. some factories got more, other less, or much less, or even 0.

The split is a old system, the new window only avoid the infinite clic.

@cry8wolf9 so what @Ansom is correct about the splitting being the same old system, I did not change it. It simply takes all of the available factories that can build the specific bot and then picks a random one from that list using the standard random number generation routines, so there really is no logic behind it.

I would assume that over a large enough bot order the distribution would be even(ish), but not exactly. It would be more like if you flip a coin 100 times, you wouldn't have exactly 50/50 heads/tails, but maybe close.

I don't know if it makes sense to tweak the system any? Maybe if the bot order is greater than a certain amount, then split them evenly? The easiest method would be to just assign them in the order that the buildings were built, since that is they order that they come back from the array. The whole reason I randomized it to begin with was so that they wouldn't all just come out of the same factory.

@bastecklein the current system is ok, for me don't need to be reworkerd.

If you order:

bots order < factories (10 bots order in 50 factories)
or
1-2 x bots order <= factories ( 10-20 bots order in 10 factories)

you can have the situation described by @cry8wolf9, some factories with 2 order, other with 1, other with 3.

but, in other situation, when the bot order is huge compared to the factories number (at least 5 bot order for each building), the bot/factories are normalized. Yes.. some factories will end sooner, other will still have some order to do, but in any case, the current situation with the new window, permit to build tremendous bot number with no effort and in few minutes.

ps. it is not true that once the order is given, you cannot do anything. You can always delete all buildings by canceling the building of bots.

@becklstein do you think you could possibly give a little love to your other games, most notably my starship and colony wars, those are 2 games i see going far, given they can be updated
