Bug: Near-duplicate nations in boneyard

Postby The North Polish Union » Mon Apr 25, 2022 1:44 pm

Really a minor bug, but when looking around in the boneyard I found an instance where a nation is duplicated, having the same founding and last activity dates, but a 6 million difference in population.

Not a bug. That is a nation name that became available for reuse, was used by another nation, which then CTEd.

Remember kids, if it doesn't have private property rights, competitive markets and voluntary exchange then it's just sparkling feudalism.

The founding and last activity dates are the same for both instances of the nation. Something isn't right there.

I suspect the issue may be that the nation has been found twice (before you did again), but the founding date of the first has struck out over the second by some glitchy mechanism.
I exist, and so do you.

Most likely that something that old got accidentally duplicated following a disk drive crash recovery or something. There are in fact two separate ancient nation files there. Three, now, as someone new claimed the name.
