Operating in a squadron

In the later systems, the player is often assigned a squadron of Centurions or Britannias to assault a target or escort a convoy. Alongside this, the player also receives wingmen throughout the game by completing specific objectives(such as going to the officer's club after achieving a certain rank ...

Re: Stations' "Wasp's Nest" AI somewhat obsolete by late gam

Turrets shooting down projectiles: This is theoretically a very good idea, and I have actually put ICX devices on stations before. However it's a sad fact right now that point defense systems are buggy as hell. Unless they've got friendly fire disabled, having turrets try to shoot down incoming pro...

Stations' "Wasp's Nest" AI somewhat obsolete by late game

In my most recent game, I realized that every station in the game save for those belonging to the Ferians and Teratons seems to follow the same defensive AI, regardless of sovereign. In essence, this routine involves docking at or orbiting a station until (A) a hostile entity is detected within a gi...

Same.
Myself as well. Someone with good writing skills ought to update the page over there. It's a fairly popular wiki and could be an excellent way to bring in more players.

Re: What are some well-designed game web sites?

On most game websites I've seen, there's a collection of information on the game's plot. Organizing a tab like that would be a great help(especially considering the huge quantity of factions is a bit intimidating to new players), and would also let more people gain insight into the game's storyline,...

Engine trail glitch at St. Kat's

Twice now I've noticed that the AI freighters docked at the ringworld in St. Katherine's Star seem to have their engines on constantly, pushing inward toward the planet but not moving. This does not appear to be a problem for the smaller ships, though that could simply be something I missed. I unfor...

Molotoks don't realize they're unarmed

Molotoks attack using two limited ammunition weapons: the Dragonfly missiles and the MAG Launcher, which deplete when used as expected. However, when the ammunition runs out, the Molotok continues to act as if it is armed, circling around the ship it is targeting and easily being cherry tapped to de...

Re: [1.3] Auton Equipment Sells More?

Couldn't this be fixed by giving the autons special versions of their more high end equipment that players cannot directly use(similar to the CSC Damage Control Party)?

Re: Multiple missions?

I can confirm this. Particularly once you complete one of the missions.
