  • Known issues in the version:
    - Moons cannot be attacked with missiles.
    - Espionage reports from moons cannot be viewed in the galaxy view
    - The alliance rank in the galaxy view does not match the highscore rank
    - Replying to an espionage or combat report shared does not work
    - Combat reports cannot be deleted from the trash if they are opened in an extra tab

    These issues are being addressed already and won't make it to the live servers.

    :!:Public Test Server ONLY:!:



    Hello commanders!



    Tomorrow, 2nd of December, at 10:00 CET we will have an update in the Public Test Servers with version 8.5.0-beta2.


    The following issues have been fixed:

    • Moons cannot be attacked with missiles
    • Espionage reports from moons cannot be viewed in the galaxy view
    • The alliance rank in the galaxy view does not match the highscore rank
    • Replying to an espionage or combat report shared does not work
    • Combat reports cannot be deleted from the trash if they are opened in an extra tab
    • Combat reports cannot be shared to the alliance using the share button at the overlay
    • Phalanx scan and system phalanx scan overlay espionage button broken
    • Event list espionage icon does not send espionage probes
    • Espionage technology information does not instantly update in the event list
    • Empty debris fields do not get deleted from the galaxy overview
    • Planet relocation countdown missing from the galaxy view


    Note: You will probably notice a lot of potential issues regarding overlays, messages, and the galaxy view with this update which simply are solved by doing a hard reload (Ctrl+Shift+R). In addition to that, some addons might fail to work since button positions got changed (e.g. different order of the “Transport”, “Espionage”, and “Attack” button when hovering over a planet).
