I would really like the ability to give my ships better orders. The standard orders that are available are too limited because they often force your ships into making very silly decisions. For example, I want my fighters to attack other fighters… but ONLY if they have a chance in hell of hitting them. I want my fighters attacking fighters around my tractor beams, I DON’T want my fighters running off and chasing other fighters, where they become perpetual dogfights that have zero chances of resolving before the match is already over.
I also want the ability to prevent my fighters from wailing on shielded cruisers, which are physically impossible for them to even penetrate.
Generally speaking, the ability to customize the AI would greatly improve us gamers enjoyment of the game and reduce some of the frustration with building a fleet.
