Lake Bug

Post by Culthrasa » Sat Jan 11, 2020 1:01 pm

Hey all,

I got a bug where there are units in a lake tile which don't vanish....
I control all the area around it (have been for >10 turns) still the units are there...
There where a few different factions near the lake, don't know which one it is... I conquered all except one (Parthia) and they will be gone soon...

The AI can't lose units to being out of supply, unless they're in a besieged city (there's a checkbox in the options menu to turn this rule on for players as well). I see three possibilities.

1: It's a Parthian fleet and will disappear once you wipe out Parthia and they have no surviving allies.

2: It's from one of the factions you conquered and still in play because of the mechanic that allows factions that lose all their territory to keep playing with any surviving units if they still have a surviving ally. In this case you would still be at war with the offending faction.

3: A pirate fleet spawned there. Pirates don't care about supply, but I don't know if they're allowed the spawn in one-seazone lakes.

If it's pirates, the only way to get rid of them would be to embark land units into the seazone, causing a naval battle to occur. Naval transports tend to suffer heavy casualties when fighting against combat ships, but can overwhelm them with enough numbers - best to send a mass of cheap units.

Send one cheap unit into the lake to scout who/what it is.
Your unit will likely be destroyed, but then you'll know what to do next....
