Got this little gem. I think it happened because the humans and I are both at war with a common foe and invading the same system?
Code: Select all
looks like an ai started up a battle during end-turn processing.
(this means i have probably forgotten to hint an AI potential attack report, after creating it.)
I think if I remember right, it told me that the humans were attacking and asked if I wanted to intervene. I decided not to, as the humans and I are at peace.
My sense is that this bug is pretty rare -- and fortunately, when you encounter it, it's usually nothing more than an inconvenience. It does indeed appear to be connected to 3+ side situations, though not always ones that involve the player (the AIs are capable of getting themselves into this kind of tangle off in their own parts of the galaxy, though it won't happen in most playthroughs).
I'm going to be adding in support for alliances this week, and that should actually increase the number of times where 3+ sided conflicts occur in game. Probably a good reason to finally hunt down this bug. Thanks for the report
