Aerial Laser Cannon runs out of ammo?
« on: February 20, 2011, 04:38:27 am »
2.3.1 on Ubuntu 10.10 here.
Game plays fine except for this part: I have a Saracen equipped with two laser cannons, which don't use ammo. However, when it goes into a fight, it shoots once and the message "your ship has ran out of ammo and is returning to base" appears. And effectively, the ship turns around and returns to base (if it isn't destroyed first).

This is not truth. You don't need to add ammo for but it uses. You can fire 10 times before it empties, and it is automatically refilled on the base.

However, when it goes into a fight, it shoots once and the message "your ship has ran out of ammo and is returning to base" appears. And effectively, the ship turns around and returns to base (if it isn't destroyed first).

Create a bugreport on the Tracker, upload your savegame so we can check if there is a bug or not. Thanks!
