Redownloaded, works now.

I didn't have any Vortices on my fleet, and I don't think the allied ships had any, since that wouldn't have changed through no-drop-no-sell. No idea what did cause it.

And I intend to make standing on top of ships impossible in a future update. In the meantime, enjoy!
actually, despite being an OP course of action, it makes a lot of sense. i.e. it equals flying into a capitalship's blindspot - basically hugging the hull or hiding in some greebles - on a smaller ship and staying there unnoticed, slowly picking the ship apart with your peashooter. i sure did this alot when i played X3 or other space sim games.

so it should't be made impossible, because it is not, it should be made hard, because it is hard.

An easy fix is to get a couple firing arcs overlapping on the blindspot. One could work, but two pretty much guarantees you having no blind spot.

It is pretty bad game design though, as it makes the optimal play boring and easy. Also this is not X3 where the ships can turn pretty fast and the blind spots aren't that large except on a few ships. But the solution I made should solve that by making it extremely had to maintain such position.

Something I noticed playing with the gust is if you have a wanzer wing with weapon that has a finite amount of ammo (Like the Strife), sometimes when it goes to resupply a completely new wanzer will launch while the other is still en-route to the carrier..is that  vanilla behavior?

It is. You can even have several more fighters in flight for one deck if they also have some unlimited ammo secondary weapon and get distracted on their way home.

I'm getting the same thing, looks like it's the Zephyr Beam Wanzers.

Hum, it's a buff actually: two Wanzers won't get focused so much by PD and they will manage more often to get in firing position (and use their mega beam attack a LOT more). They are also twice as efficient as anti-fighter screen.

Oh wow, I didn't even see that! Hadn't gotten around to actually updating and just saw their beam got weakened. Nice!
