SUBTOPIC #13: CHOOSING EMPLOYEES FOR A POSITION


Most employers hire employees according to their skill. But sometimes skills aren't enough. Therefore, they hire or place employees according to their aptitude.

For example, which employee would be suitable for a Captain position when all have five star leadership skill rating? A Teladi, Canteran, Split, Abion or Argon?

Another example, which employee would be suitable for a Manager position when all have five star morale skill rating? A Teladi, Canteran, Split, Albion or Argon?

Still another example, which employee would be suitable for an Architect position when all have five star science and engineering skill ratings? A Teladi, Canteran, Split, Albion or Argon?

In the first question, I would choose a Canteran from the Devries system for a Captain position because politically they're in a neutral position where neither the Argon nor Teladi would be in conflict with them and for diplomatic reasons by Argon and Albion who let them fly some of their ships to establish the Argon Federation. In the second question, I would choose a Teladi because they possess the managerial skill and are often civil, shrewd and business minded as well as traders and financial experts. And lastly, in the third question, I would choose Argon because they design the best looking stations.

An employee having the skill for the position is good. But one who also have the aptitude is best.

SUBTOPIC #14: ASSIGNING A SUPERIOR

There are two ways to assign a superior: Assign to escort a ship and assign to support a ship. This is creating a squad separate from the Albion Skunk's squad. In the Admiral's case, his squad is an escort for his shuttle if he has one or more equal or larger ships in it. A frigate on the other hand, would have fighters or equal or smaller ships supporting it, thus fighters in the frigate's case are support ships.

If you want a ship escorted such as a mining ship, open Property Owned window in the menu, select a ship you want to protect it, select comm, then select Assign a Superior. The captain and Yisha (Ren's co-pilot) will guide you through the steps in the assignment. In this example, a Balor would be under the Dwalin to protect it while the Dwalin mines. This is escort assignment.

If you want a ship to have support ships such as fighters, open Property Owned window in the menu, select the ships you want carried in a carrier (you will have to do this one at a time before you can use the broadcast option), select what was comm that is now broadcast, then select Assign a superior. The captain and Yisha will guide you through the steps in the assignment. In this example, the fighters would be under a Rahana or Sanahar on the list in CDR to support it during a skirmish battle. This is support assignment.

Note that Assign a Superior command is aside from Patrol command. The ships would behave like they're patrolling when assigned to a superior, but are either escorting or supporting their superior. The patrol command on the hand is for the superior to execute or carry out that precise command, thus patrol while being supported. A combination of a patrol ship and its assigned ships is possible. Hence, patrol squad and patrol wing.

With A Carrier

To command squads with a carrier is to select the carrier on the list in the Property Owned window if you have a carrier, click the addition button on the left to drop down or show the list of smaller ships that are carried by the carrier. The Albion Skunk is the main ship on the top of the list that does not carry any ship, but incorporated them instead under it.

Separating the carriers is done the same way squads are set up without a carrier. The exception of course is that the squad is in the carrier and you can have a group of carriers as a squad as part of a larger wing which is the fleet.
To use the ships as a carrier you need a special mod (Carriers - Arawn S/M Launch- and Docking - Mod), right?

That is an option. In this thread, we only use ships 'as is' without using mods. Some players don't use mods nor know how to modify the game.

SUBTOPIC #16: GETTING YOUR SHIP TO FLY OUTSIDE ZONE

When you want a ship to fly deep in empty space remotely but can't do so on the CDR, you can have a superior positioned at a coordinate by first flying to that coordinate in the Albion Skunk, have the superior Fly to Position or Fly to Current Position near you and command it to Hold Position after they've reached the coordinate. Then have any ship you want to go to that location by selecting one on Property Owned window, select Comm, select Assign a New Superior and follow the instruction to assign that ship to that superior in position. The ship will then fly to that superior to the location in empty space therefrom. Select the ship after it arrived, select Comm, have them Join your squad, Hold position and then Leave your squad if you do not want it to follow you. The selected ship can now travel deep in empty space by remote as long as the superior is in position set by the Albion Skunk there.

Remember that when you command a captain to fly or patrol in another zone around the highway area and you're inside a station, they will disregard those commands and follow your Skunk automatically if they are in your squad. Have them leave your squad and they will carry out accordingly without following you. Also, wait for the ship to finish the current order before issuing a new one. Again, they would disregard the new command when they're busy with the current one.
