[4.0b4] Free autotraders of any star level - Fix in a future build.

Post by z1ppeh » Mon, 4. Jan 21, 00:08

4.0b4 unmodded.

Attach a ship of <3 star level to a station to trade for build storage (probably works for normal storage too but I cba to test that part as this is enough). His behaviour is now set to autotrade for the station. tele to the ship, take the seat... The ship is now unattached to the station and the captain is still autotrading as if he was. Stand up and you have a pilot that has not achieved the star level that has the preset autotrade behaviour locked in. Restricted jump levels are to his star level... which would increase v.quickly on autotrade.

Surely the ship shouldn't automatically unattach from the station for a start? but either way, on any attaching/unattaching from a station all orders should be blanked.

pic shows 1.5* fresh from the wharf trader. it also works for standard station traders. They are limited only by their own star level to their jump range

Also works for traders attached to ships in fleet, i.e resupplier traders

Can confirm that I see this in my game as well. I replicated it with traders attached to an AUX ship.

Issue's more general than it seems. Any subordinates whose assignment isn't combat-related would be affected. Anyway, fixed in a future update.

Yay!

As an odd part to this, can the dropping of the fleet be stopped also?

If the fleet ship is dropped every single time I teleport into a ship and take control thats a nightmare for refleeting when you are jumping around a lot to check on things

Hello,
just as information.
I don't think this is a beta (4) bug, because I noticed it also in release 3.3 (I don't play beta 4 yet).
I noticed this on 2 or 3 ships as well, that they didn't have the 3-star pilots needed to be "auto-traders".
However, I did not teleport into that freighters and take over the controls.
So I couldn't explain it and still can't now.

It has existed for much longer than that still. Just it has only really started to become well known and abused since 3 star pilots were made more difficult to obtain.
