This is the most frustrating thing ever.
I have a resupply ship which will not deploy itself. It has the correct equipment, I checked.
So I wanted to get a fleet somewhere and then refuel for an attack. I found a nice untouched gas giant near there and selected a resupply ship and told him to deploy on the gas giant. It has caslon which I need for fuel. He happily zips along until he is about halfway there. At this point he has 420 fuel left, which is about half his total. He stops dead in space, middle of nowhere, and starts moving at speed 3 (THREE!). I click him to see what is up, he has decided to go refuel at a gas mining plant owned by my enemy. WHAT?!
Okay, so you need fuel? That's fine I can get you fuel. I tell him to go refuel at my spaceport nearby. He starts to turn, then says he wants to refuel at the gas mining facility and resumes moving at speed 3 towards the VERY distant facility. Yes it was the closest fueling point but it's an ENEMY point, and he isn't even using his hyperdrive to get there.
Why oh why can't he just go to the gas giant? He has the fuel to get there, and he will get MORE fuel when he gets there. JUST GO! He refuses.
Just so you know, automation was OFF. I even turned ALL automation off. It frustrated me so much I actually quit without saving, as every resupply ship I tried did some variation on this.
I think I am done with this game until some patching happens.
