Automated Ship Design Weapon Preference - 4/4/2013 7:13:13 AM

In a recent game of mine I thought I'd fancy trying out the phaser lances. I researched up to the advanced level for lances yet the design automation keeps putting rail guns (of which I only have 1 level in) on all of my ships. How does it make these choices and are there any ways I can influence it to use a certain type of weapon?

I don't think it is any way apart form changing the designs yourself.

It is not rocket science to swap the weapons, but unless you turn AI design of the relevant ship/base classes off, you have to be really careful about buying and retrofitting your own designs only.

It is not a lot of work to manage for instance military ships on your own, and once in a while you can always use the "auto upgrade" to get the AI to add new stuff, and then edit it to your liking afterwards (like removing the rail guns it added...).

That does not sound right.Is the auto ship design ticked in the game options.

Ive encountered this bug myself, take it as a sign. Read standard designs and make your own based on the originals. ;) It dosen't usually take you too long.
