Robot nests building fighters

Hi,
I have probably missed the discussion on this, but in one of my games my
robot nests are building fighters like crazy (according to the base log.) I
haven't set them to build fighters and they are not costing me anything (I
think). The other thing is that I can't access these new fighters and they
aren't showing up on the fighter wing control, it only shows what I should
have.
Does anyone know what's going on? This only started happening about 5 turns
ago out of 70 turns

It's in Host 190 (not yet available on Tim's main site for some
reason).

Though I get 20 per 100,000 colonists built.
So 1 per 5000 colonists.

Is it a variable number of fighters?

Thanks Sparrow,
Why has it just started happening? Is it an upgrade?

That's great, but why cant I get at the fighters or form them into wings. I
should have 1000's but only 7 are available

Hm, I have seen that figure from somebody else, too.

There does indeed seem to be some randomization be involved - or the #
of Insectoids also come into play!

I'm glad we are back to the old days where the players have to figure
each single host change out by themselfes. I'm sure Tim loves to get
many many bug reports, which are only because nobody knows that this is
the new way. Oh, wait! That can't be true - I must be ironic! ;-(((

But the host is already installed - at least on the site where I play.
Tim did not clearly enough say that this host is for testing only and
therefore it got installed.

I don't believe tt was meant to be "test-only".

Tim just doesn't have access to the the FTP services for his site
"temporarily".

No. I think Sparrow has it right. The real question here is why some
game hosts rushed out and installed 190. Tim's introductory post on
190 stated:

"I need some players to take a look at the new combat code and make
comments about the new system."

While Tim could have been more clear about his intent, any game host
who interprets Tim's statement as "this is the newest host, put it on
your servers now for widespread beta testing" is making a very big
assumption.

I am not saying this assumption was right or wrong; I am just amazed
that it happened without question or discussion.

AFAI understand it, it happens only in host 190 which is a special to
test the combat behavior and not to use it in real games.
So he must not fix it yet only when the host go "offical".

Bye-Bye JoSch.

Sorry, maybe I can not read or I understand it different from you, but
if Tim write in his posting "I need some players to take a look at the
new combat code and make comments about the new system." then it is
clear for me that it is a "special" test host.

You can go easy back to host 189 AFAIK.

Bye-Bye JoSch.
