I decided not to create a new topic on this, but I just ran into a weird bug which involves a base attack.
My current game has evolved till august and besides my main base, I have a number of Sonar Outposts (well, equipped with Transmission Resolvers by now) around the world, each equipped with a Barracuda. While the Triton of my main base was on its way to a downed Sub, a Dreadnought spawned, indicating it was going for a Floating Base Attack against one of my Sonar Outposts. Since it was undefended, I decided to just reload to a few hours earlier, hoping it wouldn't spawn (instead of going through the hassle of transferring everything and creating a new base right next to it - money isn't the issue at this point, it's just a hassle). It did spawn anyway, so I guess the AI had already marked the Outpost for an attack (which in its own right was strange, since I had intercepted all scout vessels that had entered its Transmission Resolver detection range, but that as an aside). I decided to reload and just dismantle the base manually.
Surprisingly, the Dreadnought still spawned, hell-bent on attacking that no longer existing Sonar Outpost. I chose to ignore it, since I don't have the firepower yet to send it to the bottom of the ocean and continued on that intercept of that downed USO somewhere in the Indian Ocean. While the Triton was on its way, the Dreadnought aimlessly wandered the globe, which I thought was funny, eventually ending up in the Mediterranean, where that Outpost was before I dismantled it. I completed the recovery of the downed USO, only to find the Dreadnought at the very same spot as my Triton when I returned to the GeoScope. But while I was wondering what it was doing there, the Dreadnought - despite saying it was on a FBA in the Mediterranean - made a straight run for my main base and destroyed it right away, because all Soldiers from my main base were on the Triton. And with the base gone, the Triton vanished as well.
I guess the game flunked out because the Outpost was gone before it spawned the Dreadnought and then flunked out again when I returned from the battle at the downed USO, setting it to attack my main base instead.
