AI 'cheat' question: How do they chase me when I'm way outside sensor range?

Posted on Sunday, September 4, 2016

For the Nth time, some puny little warship with a sensor range of 2 has begun chasing one of my sensor ships that saw it from 10 hexes away and moved to avoid.

For a while, I tried to tell myself that it was my sensors giving them the location fix. But if that's so, why don't I get the same benefit from their better-sensor ships? Does the FoW really exist for the AIs at Normal & above?

This lazy player wants the thorough XML and forum readers to pony up the explanation, if there is one. The flea-bait Snathi Revenge are trying to scavenge the H12-Super from me!
