I don't know if you fixed it in compatibility, but the Starbases stance is set to local engage, every one of them but the Vasari and the Replicators ones. If the player is human you can easily change it to gravity well but the AI sadly won't do it, so they just remain in place, like a normal Starbase.

Another thing I noticed is that the Titan from the rebel Replicators sometimes uses the nanite bombs ability (when set to automatic), in a target near the range border, but the ability simply doesn't reach that far (probably due to the definition in the file??, the few one that uses cone area restriction to delimit damage spread).

Overall, the other things are already listed in your notes. Pirates rebalance is welcome, they were just imposible in Very Hard for the AI players, even I lost some systems properly defended with two Starbases like nothing when their Titans were pushing with a big escort fleet.

I'll look into it.

I'll check that out also.
Thanks

Oof, it's gonna be hard to get used to the Pirate debuff. Oh well. Thanks for keeping the mod up to date! Cheers
