Far out bases - enemies don't move or attack

I'm new to BBS's so I apologize if this has already been posted...

I've noticed in 0.15.x (maybe even 0.14) that you have enemies that don't move and don't attack in larger bases...

e.g.

Do you produce pollution that reaches the enemy spawners?

That's a limitation of the biter AI. If too much is being asked of them at once the game simply stops giving commands to some of them to prevent the game from lagging out.
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on IRC and Discord.
