newageofpower I just had a crash with no log file generated, what do?
What were you doing when it crashed? Did you get an error?
newageofpower Just set the missiles to autofire on 4x, operators will leave their stations.
What's happening is that crew will leave their stations if their weapon is out of ammo and no one is scheduled to pick up any ammo (in this case because all the available crew are busy doing something else). You might want to let your "Operator" role pick up ammo at a very low priority as a last resort.
Verania I thought they just take any other task thats on their list/prio (not just factories) and someone else closer to a factory starts to deliver parts to the destination ...
Yes you're basically correct. It works basically like this:
- A weapon decides it needs more ammo.
- The weapon finds the closest factory/reactor that can supply ammo.
- The weapon looks for crew near that factory/reactor who are able to do that job according to your priority settings.
So yeah, it's not the individual crew guy that decides to go to the next-closest factory, it's that the weapon picks the next-closest factory and looks for crew near it. The exception is if a crew is waiting at a factory for a long time, then they might themselves give up and decide to try the next-closest factory.
Verania However on the side Engine Rooms some Redshirts have to take the place because no "Flight" Squad is availabe - but unlike the CR the Redshirts take the job then jump out, sometimes going for a battery, sometimes just wandering around, then jump in again and jump out - repeat ...
Verania When you load the ship in creative the "Flight" Squad has pre-manned the Engine Rooms plus some Redshirts:
Now Engien Rooms also work like other parts and Crew does not leave repeatedly.
When you load ships empty or reset crew positions the missbehaviour as described above starts ...
I'm not seeing this problem with your ship even after resetting crew, have been watching for a few minutes with all thrusters on auto-fire.
I suspect that they are leaving because the engine room is out of power and no one is scheduled to deliver any. Maybe try increasing engine room supply priority to match or exceed thrusters?
