[Request] Fleet Commander Guide
« on: February 20, 2017, 08:29:38 AM »
Ok, so you play the game, build up your space ship, get toward the center... but you want MORE! You want to drop a fleet of your well-designed battleships on unsuspecting factions!

But wait a minute... how do these crew guys work? How do I order my fleet around?

I can't find anything on this topic- maybe it's a relatively new part of the game?
 The biggest problems I'm having are:
ships don't follow me through hyperspace
(even with captains and being ordered to follow me)
ships don't attack enemies when told to attack enemies

Once I told a ship to attack enemies and it launched all the mining drones and salvage drones.
Oops?

I tell a station to "guard this position" it has guns, it has gunners. Pirate show up and it does nothing?

HOW DOES THIS STUFF WORK!?!?!

Short answer: it doesn´t :D

AI ships and stations are currently so dumb, they couldn´t pour out water from their boot without instructions written on their sole...

Hopefully it will be fixed in the future, but right now AI and fleet interface is so basic that it hurts to use :(

I was very afraid someone was going to tell me that.

Which is why I retired my fleet and piled all my resources into a fat carrier/destroyer

Setting up a faction atm is quite impossible but what you can (kind of) do, is have a band of followers to add a tad more firepower to your side when fighting stuff

Mining is a job they do very good..... more is too expensive....

with the 'salvage command' mod, a fleet is pretty good at cleaning up your sector after you defeat a pirate or alien invasion, too.

Hyperspace and portal jumps work now.
