"Form Squad" button as a new addition to strategic map
« on: April 27, 2021, 10:41:58 AM »

Make a "Form Squad" button.
Form Squad: makes the selected ships prioritize the same target with freedom of movement around the target and makes them stay close to each other when out of combat.

What's the difference between that and ship escorts?
Quite often making ships escort a different ship feels very inefficient because they become quite passive when defending that ship, eventhough it does have its use (like having support ships follow a capital)
There are cases where I would want two or three ships (imagine Wolves) attack the same target from different sides or move around the map capturing objectives together attacking same enemies, and making a ship escort is not that good for that.
