The good: Yes!!! They remember what to do!!! Awesome!!!
The (maybe somewhat) bad: The only place to save the orders is on the deployment screen, which is maybe not the most intuitive place to find it. Don’t get me wrong, having this possibility is great, no plan survives first contact with the enemy and all that, so you might need to change the default orders from there, I’m all for it. But as a user, I just assumed that we could do it from the ship creation screen as well, as it seems the most logical place to decide that.
Having said that, awesome addition to the game!!!
