If this is reproducible from the replay I could have a look at it later today to both investigate the bug and try to provide a patched savegame.

Well, the good news is that I won't get bored of bug-hunting anytime soon, even at a quick look I already found three new ones and counting. This savegame is sooo messed up… face-smile.png

The important bug here is that it is not allowed to refit a warship under attack to a transport ship, nor to attack a transport ship. But since there is always a delay between sending a command and the action being performed, this can still be possible when a ship is already near an own port. These replays demonstrate at least two different ways how this can happen; and I cannot simply sink the offending ships via the scripting console since this results in a different previously undiscovered bug with the cleanup of expedition economies.

So, to let you continue the game I simply created a savegame from the replay a few minutes before the big battle starts, which should work fine without losing too much gameplay. Thanks for finding the bugs, from now on refitting ships during a battle as well as attacking ships undergoing refit is not allowed as a known glitch, and I'll work on fixing this properly for round 3.

Edited to add: However I won't start work on this until a few more of the open PRs are merged. Too much of a backlog, and too many potential merge conflicts…

from a touranment equal chances point of view a match should be finished with the branch it has started unless this is nearly impossible (like in the first round) for the current round I don't see this criteria fulfilled.

When are you going to announce the map for round 3?

Here's another map suggestion: https://www.widelands.org/maps/plateau/

I am currently very busy in my private life so I did not have time to take a look, hopefully I will find some time tonight to check the different suggestions

I won the Game agaims Teayo at about 21:30 CEST after more then 6 hours of Game time. Teayo was blocking my main Port but I still maanged to colonize the Northern Isalnd. We had some (all known) Carhes and I compiled a release build to circumvent one of them. In the he gave up as my Eceonomy was bigger of as we we both exhaussted.

We both needed time to find a good way to handle mutiple ships. E.G. using ctr-Lick on a shipspot to pen them all. or: how to unload solodiers when defineidng a port ans all such.Nordfreese was watching, so mabye he can add some more comments.

I will collected some Savegames and replays tomoroow after having some rest.
