I had a weird bug in 1.24 yesterday. I played a rebel fleet and gave “cautious”-orders to my fighters, they attacked the enemy and after returning to my ships outfitted with carrier bays and repairing they just flew to the left side of the screen and kept on flying up and down. I never encountered this bug before.
a lot of people have complained about this. it’s not a bug. if you have the cautious order on fighters, and all your carriers are out of supplies, your fighters are technically still damaged. so they’ll proceed with the other part of the cautious order that takes over for fighters when there are no repair options for them anymore… they retreat.
Would be better if they would ignore the cautious order, when the supplies run out.
