I thought Virgo's minefield immunity is not "device", but it still
failed in my Virgos this turn. I'm myself UA, but it worked fine
earlier. In my two fleets, I had Virgo with HG and fighter wings, and
both fleets collided with barbitics. No message about immunity this
turn in any of four fleets that got Virgos. Earlier I managed to get
through minefields, this turn EVERY VIRGO lost its immunity. Even
Virgos themselves hit minefields when equipped with HG and fighters...
:/ 

Is immunity like device that can fail in alien hands? But even if it
is, how can it fail in every virgo I own same turn?

Hmm, have you checked the host version?
Perhaps this is an undocumented change in the latest host.

I'm playing at Drew's so it is probably latest host.

The wings started the turn docked, correct? This is not a device and
from what I've read is only checked at the beginning of the turn.

Maybe Tim changed this hablity in host 194, to work only for Colonie
owned Virgo.

I play at Drew and last turn was using latest host 194.

Wings were in all the time. Untill last turn every ship escorting them
got message about immunity. Also I did not hit any mines earlier.

So there is new host that is not announced here? Damn... that explains
a lot... I check vgap4 site for new hosts, not that much places where I
play games.

It seems that I had to go www.planets4.com instead of vgaplanets.com to
see new host on front page...:p

Read the previous posts before this.. Tim has stated that he cant
update the old website and has moved already.

I had read previously that alien hulls are not protected by the Virgo
immunity. Maybe that was a message of impending doom. It looks like
the code that is posted on the Minefields page of the PlanetsWiki
demonstrates that only the Virgo owner's ships are protected and it is
calculated every time the chances of hitting a minefield are calculated
instead of once at the beginning of the turn.

Ah well, sorry to hear about your loss. It's all a part of playing the
beta code though. If there wasn't a good reason for this change then
I'm sure there would be more of an uproar, but this seems like a
reasonable change.

Infact, I don't mind. I lost only 10% of my ships, BUT my enemies
cannot use Virgos to surprise attacks behind my lines anymore (borg):) 
It is better this way. I generate those 100+ ships back in couple turns
anyway.

Confirmed:!
I just ran a sim with 4 races (Bot, CoM, Priv and Liz), each running
with a Virgo and a race typical ships over 4 enemy web mines:

Only the CoM Virgo gave MF immunity. All others (yes, including the
privs who are normally really good with alien hulls) hit the mines with
both ships!

Thanks, Tim for yet another undocumented host change! :-(((

@ Tim: May it be possible to add that post release to the change history?
That would be great and only need a line. So you have at least a chance to
find it if you wonder next time what the hell is happen.

Greetings
