Others can likely help you more but I've just not used it (probably just my ignorance). :?

For my sectors I use a 2 Centaurs (BHepts) and 5 novas (AHepts). The 2nd Centaur and the novas are set to protect the lead Centaur and the lead Centaur is set to attack all enemies. No losses yet so, things seem to be working out okay.

What ships are you trying to use for your patrols? I believe only certain ships have the ability do so. (M6 and above... I think...)

sector Patrol

Post by Fus » Mon, 3. Apr 06, 10:24

Assuming that Patrol Single Sector is in the ships' menu .. when you click it the game wants you to set four points on the sector map, it's tedious as you get presented with the map four times.

This is what I do : click on the patrol sector , then in the sector map i scroll down the items in sector list on the right until I get to the gates, press enter on North Gate, game then returns to the universe map. press enter to choose the same sector as before and repeat, South Gate , East Gate or even any station in the sector.
You can choose the same location more than once eg : North, South, North, South for 2 gate sectors

patroling a sector is not what i was talking about it is multi sectors. cannot add more sectors to the patrol list. The single sector is straight forward as posted above. How can i add more sectors to the patrol list?

M6 have a command (in special commands I think) add sector to patrol just add all the sectors you want then issue the multi sector patrol command in combat menu. M3/4s just set them to protect the M6. Patrols cost money if you run out then they will send you a message and go on strike until you pay them. I seem to remember the gits wanted Cr 50,000 to start again when I was trying to finish the plot.


Edit

Whoops the add sector command is in the additional ship commands menu
after the turret commands section

to be honest, i wouldnt mind a good sector patrol guide. I dont think im doing it correct either...!

I suppose there must be one somewhere in the archives menu
