Hey guys..

It's been literally years.. maybe 2 or more since I've asked this and I'm still confused as hell..

2 questions..





(A) "only refuel when.. assemble when..." What happens when this settings is on 100% and then if I set it to 0%? please tell me what the fleets/ships do in game.




(B) "Trade with other empires" This settings apparently stops my freighters from grabbing resources from all other empires correct? so turning this off means I will not "buy" other resources from all other empires correct??

which means I will only use my own resources.. and not purchase from others?



thanks..

I might as well bundle this in with C.) the "control restricted resources.." high/low??

nobody ever figured out what this does.. till this day..

Well, I do not _know_ what they do, but they seem rather logical to me.

Trade or not? It is probably about freighters buying and selling, and should apply both ways. Possibly it is only your freighters not buying if you turn it off.

Refuel? 100% means that they won't refuel until every single ships flags itself as "need fuel", whatever that means. There is probably a fixed limit to when a ship looks for fuel, like 30% or something. Having this at more than 0 or 1, means that a low fuel capacity escort in the fleet will lug around at no fuel slowing the whole fleet's movement to a crawl.

Control restricted resources? I do not know, but I assume it is an AI setting for at what relation level to trade ultra rares.

Ok thanks,

so sounds like I need to set "first refuel" to 0...


I want my ships to not slow to a crawl waiting for one..

Not how I interpret it but I'm just as likely to be wrong. My take is they only work if you have set a fleet to auto and then only if it is in attack mode. Setting it to low setting will result in the fleet not refuelling until it is almost out of fuel.. Using 100% would result in it refuelling all the time. I have also noticed that you can get refuel messages for ships in attack fleets even if they are not set to auto.

I've been experimenting with the setting but I cannot see any differences, maybe it's broke. Someone must know how it is supposed to work.

Correct. Manual fleets ignore these settings. Defensive postured fleets will refuel as needed (under half a tank). I wouldn't worry about these settings at all.
