Retargeting escort BR

Post by bashem » Wed Jan 16, 2013 10:51 pm

When I launch the escort BR's they follow the ship they came from fine but if I highlight them and give any type of order they stop moving. How do I get them to follow a ship again?

Have you tried selecting them and then ALT-Left clicking on your own ships? That should make the Escort BR target whatever ship you click on ship. :)

I believe your supposed to just right click on your target for escort and the ships are supposed to move to and start circling it. It has been awhile since I tried this so not at 100% confidence level :D can anyone else confirm?

That sounds closer to right to me. Using ALT-left click might cause the Escort BR's to shoot at your own ships. :oops: :lol:

Looking into the issue as well as having them re target more sensibly.
Currently you need to select the escort riders and Alt+click the friendly target to get them to protect it. They will not fire on friendlies.

Thanks,
