I was finaly able to push back a little and make it into the same space, it has been many, many, many turns... I have restarted since then too, but the green zone still exists, I am not sure if it gives me any bonuses.
I got a MAC crash dump. Didn't report back to Apple, but can easily recreate. I was in the middle of a cool battle and wanted to keep the momentum going, you know how it is. I also wasn't sure about the information contained in the dump, happy to email to you, just didn't want to post on the forum with scrutinising what was in it.
Let me get all the data later today and lodge an actual report under bugs. It was trigger by multiple keyboard presses during combat, x z x C C C whilst clickimg the next ship trying to move quickly through the ships and perform combat actions.
