Bringing down planetary barrier shields?

#1 Post by yukio » Sun Dec 01, 2019 10:16 pm

Version 0.4.8

I'm encountering a problem where my fleets don't even seem to be engaging enemy planets. A large-ish fleet, with plasma and death ray, just sits in orbit and slowly takes damage from mines, without attacking. The enemy planet's barrier shield is 16. What am I doing wrong?

An screenshot would be helpful.

Is it possible that the planet is hidden (has more stealth than your detection strength).

Yes, please include a screenshot or save file.

Another possibility is that your fleet is set to passive instead of aggressive mode. (Can happen if you merge your battle fleet into your troop fleet, for example).
