From: Mass. USA. now in Lancaster, OHIO
Basically I have noticed that whenever I want my fleets to engage something, they ALWAYS use hyperdrives and arrive in a circular formation around the target. Needless to say this almost NEVER the way you'd want to attack, so my questions are:
Is there actual formation options in the game? (Like, a triangler formation, or square, or more complex ones like small ships in front, large ships in the back)
And can I force the fleet to move towards a given target, without "jumping" to it. Say if I make them arrive at a distance, and then want to move them in at sublight speed.
Thanks in advance.
About two years ago Canaris_PL asked about making Stars act like HyperDeny components.
I'm not sure if hyperdeny stops hyperjumps IN but it prevents jumps within it. If a star had such a field it would allow you to jump near the target and form up the formation without fearing that individual ships whould jump to attack on their own.
