unbelievable Patrol=doing nothing at all.

Post by abisha1980 » Thu, 27. Dec 18, 10:09

I set a few osprey's to patrol a sector they not move oke fine..
now i send them to fly around a sector guess what they fly pass-by enemy's.

so either i done something wrong with the command or it simple not working.
(i go to information, set patrol sector (i see a police symbol) but nothing happens.

I've added a "NPC Behaviours" page to the X4 Manual.

Hopefully that will help with these sorts of topics.

1 of the 5 images wasn't visible a few minutes ago. This has now been fixed.

If you cannot see any others, please could you take a screenshot to show what you can see? Thanks.

done the setting's that they assault pirates, Patrols still not automatic patrol and still fly pass red dots.

i don't see why it should be so difficult i just wanna have to put the ship on patrol sector and be done with it.
and expect the ship to patrol the sector and destroy enemy ships.

Guard position seems to work but they wont be flying around the edge of the sector. It has a small radius that they randomly fly in

I don't believe Fly and Wait command or Fly To, will automatically make your ships hostile to enemies... otherwise, it may be messy.
