Allow AI Ships to Use Gates
« on: January 11, 2019, 07:06:56 PM »
Hey there,

It would be awesome if AI ships jumping from Sector to Sector could utilise the Gates when this speeds up their travel time / when their hyperdrive is on cooldown. Currently, they'll jump to a Sector, and just sit there like a ... well, sitting duck ... until their hyperdrive is recharged.

With using Gates, they could be constantly on the move.

I freaking love the new what I call "RTS update". It's made my Avorion life so much more enjoyable. Keep up the good work!

Is there a way to tell ships not in your sector to travel to another sector? I have not seen the option on the universe map.

NVM I see you mean know, they can move within their hyperspace jump range.

I second this.
Additionally, allow us to set a destination for an AI-controlled ship, outside of their normal jump range, and have the ship automatically plot jumps and gate travel according to the fastest time/route.
Obviously it should only use gates that the alliance or ship owner is aware of on the galaxy map.
