Wow so this still isn't fixed? I assume they just do not know how or it is hardware specific related?
I just dont understand how the main thing that sets this game apart from other "4x" space sims is the customization of ships and races and then the battles that you can get immersed in.
Noticed that even this latest expansion the battle viewer and weapon fx are still on year 2002 levels. Along with if you make a race and make a ship set with custom ships they all still fire red dots at each other the player stuff works fine but AI does not work... Very disappointing that these "expansions" are not really improving the game in that aspect. The game really needs a true freshen up at this point. New FX new(deeper) tech tree fix the red ball problem. I still do not understand why we do not have a 5ish dollar DLC that adds onto the tech tree with better assets and fx, everyone would buy that, every galciv game does not need the exact same weapons and shittier fx. Modding can only take it so far and all the other issues make the 100s of hours modding seem worthless.
I keep buying the game to support in hopes that they can have the funds to actually take galciv3 into being a true 2017 now to 2018 game but instead we keep getting meh dlc branded as expansions.
