@GCU Grey Area The fact that it only kicks in when slowing down to the same speed as the capital ship is not ideal as it then removes the option of any low speed manoeuvers without assists, and provides a disconnect when the control mechanic suddenly changes when at those speeds.

Not sure what you mean by "disconnect". What sort of manoeuvres are you doing to generate these sudden changes to control mechanics? I've experienced nothing of the sort, though this sort of slow flight is something I generally only do near friendly capitals (very idea of low speed manoeuvres seems insanely risky if the other ship's doing it's best to kill me).

The feature would be far more sensible (in my opinion) if blind spots were more heavily shielded than other positions (so its a tad bit more balanced) but the implementation nightmare would be extreme and not worth it. The combat system from X3 was good enough, this drafting mechanism is unnecessary without severe overhauling
