How to use turrets on ship (X3: TC)

Post by thesuker » Sat, 2. Jan 21, 06:31

So I just got a new springblossom and fitted it with ssc and eempc in the turret slots. I put them in group 4 and gave the side ssc turrets the order to attack fighters and the rear turrets to attack missiles. Thing is they aren´t doing any of that automatically. I had a xenon N fly around me for about 3 minutes, getting really close (200m or so) and my turrets didnt attack it a single time. And I also had another instance of a xenon L firing a missile at me and none of the turrets firing at the missile. What am I doing wrong?

Each turret has its own 4 weapon groupings so unless your turrets are individually set to group 4 where you put the weapons, then you have no weapons mounted in them.

Main battery (front guns) groupings have no relationship to turrets.
A dog has a master; a cat has domestic staff.

Figured it out. Had through the turret views and choose group 4 for each view.
