Mass Deploy Racial Bug [1.15]


#1

If you mass deploy a ship and change races, you can still mass deploy that ship!!!

100% duplicable, just choose a race, click mass deploy on one ship, go back to the mission select window and change your race, then go to a mission and BOOM! You can deploy that ship in mass deploy style!

Result:

Gratuitous Forum Bump!!! This is a major problem and has still not got much attention!

Cliff, fix it!


#3

Good catch, I hadn’t ever thought to do that!


#4

this is soooo exploitable :confused:


#5

I always wanted to field mixed race fleets. Bonus!


#6

while we’re on the topic of mass deploy… it’s a pain in the ass to mass-deploy frigates near cruisers sometimes, since you always end up selecting the cruiser somehow. ugh.


#7

Still not fixed in 1.15…


#8

I’d like to this this as a feature, making mixed fleets has actually turned out to be rather fun, as unbalanced as it can be. Thanks for pointing this out.


#9

I guess I should fix this, although as I suspected, people find it cool.
There should definitely be some thing, story-related or unlockable that lets you employ alien mercenaries…


#10

Fixed for 1.16


#11

What about as mission parameters, something like “may use X% of your points on out-of-faction ships?”


#12

Indeed, as a future feature, it could be pretty good.


#13

You could even have missions allow specific faction mercenaries, permitting you to tie the factions to different geographical locations. Might enhance the richness of the setting.
