Hello,

I found a derelict ship and repaired it. Now I'd like to use it to attack another ship, but it just won't obey me. It accepts the attack order for just a few seconds, and then switches to "escape" on his own. Automation for the ship is *off*. What am I doing wrong?

Adding insult to injury, my ship has also a lot more firepower and is in better shape than its opponent. But I think I should be able to tell a ship to fight no matter how hopeless it seems...

I've uploaded the savegame to https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11545826/Don't%20escape.dwg in case hat helps. I'm talking about the "Scarlet Banshee".

If the ship is set to evade when military in sight of when attacked or something like that, you can do nothing. Just keep clicking to force the order and it will semi-work :P

There's no way to tell it *not* to evade?

I haven't looked at the save but if you select the design you can change the stance and save it even if its a design you can't build yourself.

Doesn't seem to work for me, it's not set to evade, yet it's constantly escaping:

Refuel it and retry to attack something.

Repair it also - think if it was changed in a recent patch, but it used to be that even with a single point of damage ships would avoid combat.

But it's probably the low fuel level.
