AI ships do not "target" their enemies with some loadouts
« on: May 04, 2021, 12:28:11 AM »

I have noticed that ships that only have PD weapons besides their selected weapon group will almost never "target" an enemy (as in, press "R" to target) unless they come extremely close. That's not a massive issue since weapons are still operating without, unless you have a modded ship with a system that requires such target to operate.

It can be reproduced by giving a tactical laser and some pd weapons (or not) to an omen, then comparing its behavior if you add a missile weapon in a second weapon group.
