"Eliminate Order"
« on: December 30, 2017, 04:31:01 PM »

Only allow ships that can handle the power/loadout of said designated ship and survive to be designated automatically. Otherwise big problems will arise from rare ships with bad flux management literally throwing themselves at capital ships.

IIRC, if you select the ships you want and right-click an enemy, it should create an "Eliminate" with only those ships assigned. Trying to auto-guess what ships can and can't handle the target is beyond what could be done reliably - there are too many factors - so I think it'd just wind up being confusing.

Well, I always do the right-click eliminate order, seeing the frigates charge in and get completely wrecked kinda disheartens me every time I see it though.

On a side note, when you switch piloting ships, shouldn't the ships be put on a "Search And Destroy" order automatically? Or resume their order once you cease control of the ship?
