I’m trying out the demo, version 1.25 on Vista Business 64. I made a custom frigate and sent 6 of them out on the first tutorial mission. Their orders are Co-operative and Vulture.
Every time, they easily destroy the first ship that comes at them, then advance until they are just out of range of the enemy with their rapid fire lasers. They then cease to move and get slowly destroyed by beam weapons.
Is this a bug, or am I missing something?
