Hi,

Has anyone gotten looping Trade AI ships working? Because whenever I give my AI ships trade commands (buy, sell, repeat), it performs the queue once and then forgets about it.

This is what I've done:
  • Craft Trader ship.
  • Give it a Captain.
  • Outfit it with a Trading System (so it can do the trades).
  • Give it an order: buy 10 goods from Sector at 85% price threshold.
  • Hold shift.
  • Right-click another Sector to jump there. Shift queues it up.
  • Give it an order while holding Shift: sell goods until 0 left at 110% price threshold.
  • Right-click the first Sector to jump back to the place we got the goods from.
  • Loop Commands using the Loop Commands button that appears while holding Shift.

For me, it executes the orders once, then forgets about its queue.

Am I simply doing it wrong?

Thank you for reporting. You're not doing it wrong, it seems that our fix to prevent endless loops also prevents any loop :| We'll fix it soon!

Any chance there's an ETA on when the loop function will be available again?  I'd like to use it for my factory setup

I just tried to do a small trade loop and I'm getting the same issue.

So with the change to mining, would setting the loop be added in now? Not every sector has a resource depot so in order to full clean out a sector they would have to make several jumps with putting in the same flight pattern and warps each time.
