I am having an issue with defensive stances -

The problem I am having : It switches back to attack stance once I turn on automation (hit the A key on the fleet)


1. I assign the fleet a home base.

2 I Put the defensive stance on

3. I do the range no matter what range I do it all goes back to attack stance upon hitting A

4. I turn on automation for the fleet - it goes to attack stance


Basically I cannot get it to stay on defensive stance with the fleet automation on. It almost instantly goes back into attack stance as soon as I automate that fleet with no mission before or after. Is this a setting somewhere that is messed up? Am I doing it wrong? does it only work for certain ranges? (even though I tried all ranges it all does the same thing)

As an edit when I say stance I mean posture lol Sorry my english not good

Do you have fleet formation automated?

Having fleet formation automated will give the AI control of the fleet when the fleet is on auto. The AI always picks an attack stance. For full control of fleets switch to manual control.

This isn't exactly true. If you have a large enough space navy with enough stuff under the computer's control while automated fleet formation is active, the computer will sometimes put fleets on defensive posture and station them at a system, but it typically only does so with smaller fleets and relatively valuable systems (at least as far as I can tell from my rather limited experience with automated fleet formation active, which basically amounts to about as long as it takes for me to notice that it's on and then turn it off, and 'valuable' in this case means 'high population and a large spaceport' if my memory is correct), and if I recall correctly the computer tends to prefer setting fleets to defend regions rather than individual systems.

Of course, it doesn't really matter for the purpose of this thread, since if automated fleet formation is set it's pretty unlikely for the computer to leave an automated fleet the way the player set that fleet up.

I didn't know that. I've always seen them in attack postures. Good to know.
