X3:TC CLS2 wait for reguest signal problem - Understood now

Post by Fezder » Tue, 6. Nov 18, 18:37

Right, title sums my problem pretty well.
I use cobra for my boarding ops, and have designated CLS2 (mistral super freighter) that I planned in using in rearming process.
However, I noticed that it could well jump in during actual boarding op, filled with pricey boarding pods, hammers and flails.
So I added "wait for request signal"=yes, which in my understanding should wait until I give the call for rearmig process.
It still jumps in when sees fit.
Such simpe task, but yet, I can't find reason why It doesn't work as intended

Rearmer is configured as follows;
CLS2 level=logistican
waypoint 1 (mammoth that I use as storage)
1.refuel jump energy
2.loading upt to 20 boarding pod
3.loading up to 500 flail
4.loading up to 100 hammer

waypoint 2 (cobra, as me)
1.unloading up to 10 boarding pods
2.unloading up to 400 flail
3.unloading up to 50 hammer

waypoint 3 (Hub, where mammoth storage is located)
1.fly to station (so it doesn't stay in random possibly hostile sector)

supply conditions;
min transfer amount on collection 0%
min transfer amount on delivery 0%
dock with same ship in sector: no
wait for request signal: yes
quit working: no


I applied key - to act as reguest signal, and I get sound when I press it.

Both ships have transporter device (or what is needed to transfer cargo in space)
But, whether or not I have reguest signal set or not, rearmer comes when sees fit.
Any ideas? That' pretty much all info I can think of giving.

CLS2 Wait for Request Signal only works for supplying target TLs and not other types of ship. It is so described in the BP CLS2 notes,
A dog has a master; a cat has domestic staff.

Ah, so it seems, saw that line in manual but wasn't sure if It's the case. Pity! Still, thanks!
edit: thanks also for editing header!
