AI Commands

Post by DaMuncha » Fri, 14. Sep 18, 07:03

In X3 there was an added AI command library, and a long list of added comands that you could give ships and drones in the command suite mods.

In XR the only commands you could give were Follow Me, Fly to sector, and attack sector.

What commands would you like to be able to give AI in X4?

Lets break it down into categories:

Combat:
Attack closest
Attack my target
Defend target
Follow target
Bomb target
Form wing
split wing
target shields
target engines
target cockpit
disable target
board target
remain at distance
dont attack target

Trade:
Return to station
Refuel
Restock
sell ware
sell for best price
Buy for best price
sell at closest station
Eject cargo

Exploration:
Lay satellite network
Remove satellite network
fly to position
dock at target
explore sector
scan sector
follow target
scan station

Salvage:
Salvage Vessel
repair ship
repair other ship
retrieve cargo
claim vessel
collect astronaut
collect ware
strip wares

Disable, Disarm target.

For boarding.

Oh, and board target. Because we'll need that one too.

+1. Grandmas can be in space if they wanna be in space.

On topic, X3 had a Manual Trade Run command that I liked to use in the early game - go to station, buy stuff, go to another station, sell stuff. Set to repeat if desired. ^^

Part of the issue with X3 eventually was that there were a LOT of commands, in a bunch of nested menus. Rather than cutting out options like was done in XR, I think it would be a good idea to have a kind of hotbar for ship commands - so the really common stuff can be accessed relatively quickly (XR style), but less-used but still necessary stuff is still available (X3 style.) We'll see what kind of shape the UI for this eventually takes.

I guess the life expectancy for female argons in the x universe is a few hundred years by now, so it is no wonder there are so many grannys :roll:

The commands I missed most in X Rebirth would be to patrol multiple zones in a specified order and a rebuy fighters command for wing leaders.

Dont shoot my target, anything that makes boarding easier to be honest. Found a nice mod that kinda help with that, prevent ships from firing on boarding operation.

19 minutes dispatch time for the first SJW to show up at the crime scene. That's impressive. But you do have played X Rebirth, no? You must have seen the horrors walking,...sorry standing around. Men, women, hermaphrodites or whatever they were.

Used the Boarding mod in XR that stopped all other allied ships from attacking the marked target for boarding. Script is already done :wink:

Would love to see more commands relating to carrier command.
And make outfitting fleet of ships easier.

I heard something about Loadouts being mentioned. So I think that's already being covered. :D

I wasn't going to comment, but then I read this.

Re: to Zaphod;

Then who will be left to buy the game?
