Merry Christmas all.
I was trying to help someone on the Steam discussion board regarding CWIS but I'm afraid I'm having the same problem. CIWS does not automatically fire... I have to manually target each missile* for it to fire on them. I would assume that this should happen automatically (I assume this for RL, or if not at least in game, I don't know what situation you would not want your CIWS to fire if a missile was in range).
I set up a scene with a destroyer with only a CIWS weapons system and sensors on vs 4 incoming vampires which are then classed as guided weapons long before entering range. I've checked all WRA and ROE, changed them to nearly every logical combination I can thing of, then every illogical one, but still CIWS only fires manually*.
I guess it's not a killer issue because when I do target manually it works, but it's not what I imagine the intended function is....
I'm still pretty sure I'm doing something wrong..... I can't even use the Search function on this site, so let that influence your opinion of me.
*It seems that if I only target the first one or two missiles, the CIWS will automatically target the next one, but then again revert to only manual targeting e.g. I target vampire #1 and #2, CIWS takes out #1, #2, and #3 but leaves #4. Or I target #1, #2, #3, and it will then take out all 4.
Did you run this on a time compression?? or 1-1??
