I'm having Dependence spreading through my planets. I assume I have to research Human Temperance to eliminate it?
I have researched drones. Are they any good? Would they be better then what I have now (Cutting beam + Heavy AM cannon
Not this late in the game. Drones are GREAT against players with no PD and later, with added armour or even advanced frames, against players with no missile and phaser PD. Those two will just reduce them to dust in a matter of seconds though.
I'm allied to purple player. Almost every time (+95%) I load a savegame I get either a question for my yellow enemy to join our alliance or a message that purple will downgrade our alliance to NAP.
Diplomacy bug. Also I don't know why SotS is recalculating the diplomacy at loading, but that is what it seems to be doing.
During tactical combat when I order a ship to attack an enemy if it is not facing it directly it will fire its primary weapons while it is turning to face the enemy. Of course that means that when it faces the enemy its weapons will be empty. In other words, it wastes perfectly good shot.
Usually that happens when its turn crosses another enemy ship. The weapons fire and ship turns on... You can assign weapons with long recharge rates to another weapon group and have them set to fire only at my target. BTW, you did notice that you can manage weapon groups when designing ships? I never do that, but you can if you want. With weapons such as HCLs and impactors that could prove beneficial.
Also during tactical combat. My ships have a habit of firing at enemy regardless if one their friends is in their line of fire. VERY frustrating to see a DN firing all 11 Cutting beams into engine section of my other DN.
SotS does check FF, but only at the start of the fire sequence. Everything that happen in between...
When I have 2 fleets with CnC I can't choose which fleet will I be commanding in combat. There is a choice and I select which fleet I want, but it's not working.
As far as I know, it is working. But you only start with that fleet's layout, you get all the ships from all fleets in any case. If you think it is not working you can post a bug report at Kerberos' forums, too.
