Battle Question

Post by JocaRamiro » Thu Dec 19, 2019 5:39 pm

Hi,

I have come back to the game after a bit of an absence. This led to an update which resolved a prior question about display.

But, it raised a question about combat. Before, when a battle started, I could first organize my fleet into a formation, and then direct the movements of each ship. Now, I can do neither. Am I missing something, or is this a new feature?

Are you attacking or being attacked?

I am on the attack.

However, I was previously able to move units even when defending.

The defending side is given the preparation stage. The attacking side starts "as is", except ships with Hyperjump Control Module (late technology).

Thank you.

A follow-up:

Once the battle is started, do I have any direct control over ship movements? Can I, for example try to get those on the wings to come closer?

Sure.

Perhaps I am getting closer.

If it is true that I can influence the movements of ships during battle, how do I? it used to be you could select a ship and then create a course for it to follow using the cursor. This no longer seems to be true.

Nothing radically changed in the battle control. Perhaps you need to (re)read the manual (in the Manuals sub-directory) and (re)play the tutorial.

Hi,

It is good to hear that things did not change. Yet, still I have a problem. I think the program is not recognizing my right mouse button - I can select a ship, but cannot give it anyplace to go. This is not the way it was before. Note, I have a newer computer, an "upgrade" to Windows 10, and I downloaded the most recent package.

Any thoughts or suggestions?
