The user on whose account the problem was detected:
Krohm

Coordinates:73:382:2


Date or time of the incident (according to server time):17/12 06:07:35


Description: Colonization Report
17/12 06:07:35

73:382:2
Failed to colonize planet [73:382:2]. By the time the order is completed, Colonization Technology is insufficient (now 8 of 8).

Except that it is not a planet, but a satellite. I've got 8/8 planets but 0 satellites so far.


Actions required to repeat the problem:
Send colonization order to a satellite.

Possiblity it is because this satellite was abandoned by the previous owner after I sent the colonization order ?

Possibly it is because there is no planet at these coordinates ?





Screenshot:

Also, if it is normal that it counts against the planet limit, I think it should do as it does for planets and prevent you from even trying to colonize it if the limit is reached.

Krohm, what I abandoned was a PLANETARY pirate station. It's a station the size of a planet, with a level of gravity equal to a planet. It is an artificial object, but it still counts as a planet. I said you needed a planet colonization slot when I offered it. I abandoned it so I could colonize an actual planet.

As Dragoneye99 said, this was a Planetary Pirate Station. It is not a satellite (unlike OPS) and requires planetary slot from Colonization Technology. So failure to colonize is not a bug.

The message that said “Failed to colonize planet” was wrongly stating the type of object (since planet and PPS share the same status of central object) and it is now fixed to reflect the correct object type.

We don't suggest Colonization order in places like Galaxy info panels for objects, including PPS, if you don't have free slots, but you can still send it manually. Slot limits may be changed while your fleet is in flight/on hold (if you abandon another object or finish researching a new level of ColT during that time).
