Nuke glitch

Recommended Posts

I declared war on the nation of cEviN keY this morning. However, I apparently have the option to launch a nuclear weapon against him, despite being at war for less than four hours. Instead of the normal (paraphrased) "Your nuclear weapons are being readied for launch" text, I just have the normal launch button.

If I had to guess, it might be an error caused by fighting a war against the exact same nation a few weeks ago. Note that I have not actually tried launching a nuclear weapon to see what would happen.

Edit: I did try launching one (for science!), and got the red exclamation point error message, informing me that I had to wait 24 hours. So it seems like the glitch was only on the precursor screen, and didn't actually carry over into a valid launch.

As speculated this happens when you redeclare on the same person, and has existed for at least a year or two.

Can confirm the same thing on my end.

EDIT: Thinking back, I recall having the option to fire a nuclear weapon even before I had the option to fire upon the two nations I declared war on yesterday. Not sure if that'll help for bug fixing but there you go.

This looks to be just the same thing that has held for a while (see the latest here -- http://forums.cybernations.net/index.php?/topic/125390-nuke-glitch/ )

 

A previous war between the two of you allows the pop open menu for firing a nuke to look like its fine, but firing a nuke wouldn't work if you try.

That solves that, then. Cheers!
