A hotkey that launches fighter drones.

When the key is pressed a predefined number of fighter drones. They will either attack your current target or protect you.
Activating the hotkey while there are no enemy ships nearby will allow you to set how many drones to launch. This value is saved and used during combat situations.

Supports Fighter Drones and Fighter Drones Mk2

would there be any possibility of adding to or modifying this script so that.

1)When you press the button it launches in sets of say 5 or max number you have if less than 5

and

2)another button to collect them.

as after every combat i spend a few minutes running around collecting all remaining drones, and it gets a little irritating.

Thanks

was just about to request the same thing here ...

the part of collecting them, or a 'come back and dock' button =)

option of releasing them in 1s or 5s or 'wings' if possible (if they can be put into wings?) ...

drones dont appear to be 'wingable' i tried looking for that option myself ;)

Legionnaire

just a thought on the collect or come back and dock for drones, make it that a tansporter device is required to collect them?

It can now launch multiple drones.

The collecting drones is going to have to wait a few days, and it'll probably be in a different command.

first of all, this is my first mod, so i dont know if im doing it wrong

i turn on the script editor, and i see the mod there. so it is installed
but when i go to "Controls" i cant see the key, i have looked under all of the tabs, and am unable to find it

Do i need to change it via the script editor?

Thanks

When i added other scripts, it appeared. thanks

I know this is a very, very, very old topic but I am running into the same issue that Corhem ran into. I'm trying to run it in X3:AP. Is it compatible with that game? You'd think EGOSOFT would incorporate this feature into the game.
