I am pleased to announce that I have tracked and fixed the "PB not working" bug.  I would normally release a hotfix with it, but I'm very close to releasing 2.5 anyway, so I think I'll hold off until that.

Will this patch release have the minor bugfixes I found?

That was... magtube-quick. Great job, man, and thanks.

On another note... do you guys think the Total Thought Control probe team action ought to result in Captured Base Drones? It does, and that seems quite... unintuitive, but might make sense mechanically/balance-wise. Captured bases could be less (or no) of a chore if TTC added no drones.
At first, I assumed that no extra drones would be the difference, but as far as I can see, the difference between TTC and Mind Control is that capturing a base from a non-hostile faction will instantly result in Vendetta in the case of MC, but on the contrary, TTC will cause the rival faction leader to... not notice. The base citizens do notice, though. ;lol

The manual DOES say the difference between the two is that TTC doesn't incur diplomatic issues, so that difference should be intended, I'm just piqued by the lack of drone difference.

The conditions those drones live in haven't changed, just the person they're unhappy with? ;)

It will have the one with the editor display you told me about, the go-to-base-related one, and new window.  Is that all of them?

I could see how it might make sense for it to not, but seeing as it's clearly meant to parallel subverting a unit without it being detected, the proper fix might be just to rename it to something that fits the mechanics better.

Yes, that is all the bugs we both agreed on to fix. Also, is it possible to enable probe teams to select a specific technology to steal from a faction? This would be very similiar to how you can select specific facilities to sabotage.

It would take a fairly significant amount of work but would be doable.  It's not making the short list, though.

Is this a bug? It just seems odd that aircraft would get an open ground bonus to defense against artillery.

It's not quite a bug (something that wasn't supposed to happen), but may be an oversight on the part of the game designers.

Or maybe not.  Even landed aircraft can probably be wheeled around.
