Let us declare a distance for an order
« on: May 29, 2023, 06:05:09 AM »

Orders seem to have a certain leash distance to them. However in some situations that leash is too long (e.g. when you want to push into a capture point or when assaulting a station, being closer tends to be safer there) so please give us a distance modifier for commands where we can tell units to be much tighter or looser about them. Or maybe even tell ships to keep a certain distance while attacking something.

I think this is more tied to the Officer personalities/ship doctrine than the leash itself. While I'd like more fine control, it would take away somewhat from the nature of finely choosing Officers based on their personality for such tasks.

Dunno, I tried to make three large ships stick to the bottom of the map with defend waypoints and they all moved a big square's distance up from the waypoints despite having different personalities. Unfortunately that put them into range of the station I wanted them to avoid...
