I'm thinking of releasing bugfix patches for stars since the 'corrupt racefile' has just caught me again (someone not using my existing patch) and it's getting annoying.

AFAIK, these are the following bugs easily fixed:

- Space dock overflow (already got a proposed design)
- Racefile corruption error
- Number format display (possibly)

Anything else?

From what the debugger tells me, fixing the Signed Div call causing the overflow could actually involve less bits to tweak. Wink

Returning unambiguous values for the lower end of clicks-to-grav has been suggested. Very Happy

Displaying the exact patch version is nice, too. Cool

Fixing the inaccurate "fuel usage" display would be a boon, too.

I wish there was a way to change the player colors in the score graphs... Sherlock

What about allowing more than 999 shipcounts be displayed? Deal



So many Stars, so few Missiles!

Increase ship design slots to 24. Count gift designs in a separate list of 8 slots.

Raise the max fleet and minefield limits to 4096 or so.

That would mean patching a ungodly amount of internals. Best left for a future patch. Confused
