Is zys123 an AI bot? And View Battle needs some work

zys123 (I believe that's the handle) attacks ship fleets in my sector. When defeated it vanishes through a small black hole. Is that someone from another sector and is that how you travel back to your sector when defeated? Or is it a bot used to test combat?

On the View Fleet. When you click to view someone's battle you really have to hunt for the fleets on the battle map screen. I mean scroll and scroll. They are not centered in the screen when the battle map opens up. I know everything is still developing. Just an FYI. And once again Kixeye I think you have a fun winner in this game overall. As with Star Trek a lot of people will be at least interested in looking at and trying out a space battles game. If I had once suggestion to make it'd be ship design. I'd make them sleeker and more sophisticated looking. They look a little cartoonish.

    Thanks. Originally I thought it was some sort of test bot due to the way it disappeared.  Built in relay towers (in effect). sweet.

    IMO... Relay towers were an afterthought in BP because it grew beyond expectations, but it looks like VC is designed to be more scalable.

    you cant teleport from sector to sector just into the sector from out side it or outside it into it.

    Ah hello, glad to see my presence has gotten some traction! :D

    And no, I am not an "AI bot". If mods/CM would like to know my tactic, just shoot me a pm and I'll talk. That aside I ain't gonna be revealing something like that to people here, so far I've only done so to two other people on my planet who are working together, we should get an alliance thread up soon. :)

    EDIT: Hehe, if you need proof I'm a real person you can always check out this little thread to know some of my history :3

    No you're cool zsy. I was new to the beta testing and didn't know FvF attacking moving fleets was possible. Then you disappeared through the worm hole which I had also never seen. And your handle is different the most others.  I was also thinking maybe it was a developer testing and trying things out as well.
