Mexican Sloop Can Have Infinite Range

:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

  • GAME BUILD #: 54545
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 10

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

When playing as Mexico, if the sloop has a lock, it may continue to fire at the target as long as the enemy unit is seen by the player.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

  • Less than 25% of the time / matches I play (RARELY)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Play as Mexico
  2. Send or build sloops
  3. Extend your sight line so that you can see far beyond the range of a sloop (fishing boats are a good option)
  4. Engage in combat with an enemy vessel with the sloop
  5. Watch as the enemy vessel tries to escape. The sloop may stay in combat

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

The sloop should not be able to shoot at vessels out of range.

Hi @stephensundin !

We tried to reproduce your issue on our side with your save game but we got no result. Does this still happen to you in the last patch?

I haven’t seen it since the patch. I’ll keep my eyes out and if it happens again hopefully get y’all a better save game
