Rejected Colonization Attempt
« on: September 18, 2010, 11:50:59 AM »
Why would the game reject an attempt to colonize a planet that is still showing as open and available? My fleet is returning with the standard message saying 'someone got their first' but the planet is still showing as open. Very odd and a major waste of time.

Maybe someone got there and took the slot then abandoned it before you saw who it was?

Most likely someone got there first, you bounced, then they didn't like the fields so abandoned.

I think that also happens if you already have the maximum number (9) of planets already.

It has a different message for that something along the lines of 'You already have the maximum number of colonies so your something something something....'

yeah, I got to about 15/15/15 for mines and then just called it quits because ship speeds are so painfully slow. That should actually be an "I" not a "i" lol.
