I am playing a game where I have captured every world, but the game says that there is one other civilization still alive. It turns out that this is because that civilization still has a colony ship somewhere in the universe. I have included 4 screen snapshots below:
- The first one shows the size of the universe
- The second one shows that there is another civilization that is still alive
- The third one shows where the colony ship is (but you can't see it!)
- The fourth one zooms-in so that you can see the colony ship without it being covered by the banner containing the world name
I spent a lot of time playing "Where's Waldo" trying to find this colony ship hiding under the world name banner. There should be a way to find any ship owned by a civilization to avoid this kind of unpleasant endgame experience.
Sorry, the screen snapshots were there when I originally posted this message, but for some reason they disappeared. Since I continued playing the game I cannot recreate them.
If I knew how to upload a saved game, I could upload the save I created with the hidden colony ship.
