Invasion problem. Again.

Post by Smiling_Spectre »

Last time you fixed invasion for me, making dedicated ships go to dedicated planets, instead involving in random invasion. Thank you!

Unfortunately, there is another situation, when exactly the same happens.

Engaging sector/defending against invasion pulls out all ships in sector. Including former invading forces. *sigh*

Can it be fixed too to not touch my poor invading forces with explicit orders to invade totally different locations? :)

Thank you! :)

By virtue of the 'instanced combat' design all ships in sector are pulled in space combat if engaged. Their orders are retained (if not already completed prior to being pulled) and will continue with their order after the engagement if the battle is not lost. This is working as intended.

Well, I see that it's by design... but why it must be so? :) Ah, forget it.

Anyway, I believe, it _not_ works as intended for invaders... or at least, I wasn't able to notice it. After each "engage"->battle over planet sequence, all my invaders are around this planet. And never arrived to former invading targets. I didn't notice, if "invade" orders are still here (but I believe, they are not). I'll check it later, I hope.
