In Civ-BE vanilla, the Ultrasonic Fence made it impossible for aliens to come within 2 tiles of a city. In Rising Tide, the mechanics were changed to merely discourage aliens to come close.
But how exactly does that work?
I assumed that the discouragement effect only gets weaker if the aliens are angry, but in a recent game I treated them super friendly (not attacking a single time) and a Kraken still completely ignored the fence and destroyed all my improvements. I even had the +1 range quest reward.
Am I missing something or is the fence currently broken?
