I really like all the new mechanics shown. I also like the new icon rings around ships. I was also wondering about the fighters docking with the retreating ships. Does that mean there is a possibility that a mechanic can be created to allow ships to dock with tenders in order to be repaired?
Theoretically, yes. However, it would be hard or even impossible to get this working properly with the system that we introduced for the single unit retreat. The docking requires a fighter to be despawned, which would lead the ship which originally spawned the fighter to believe the squadron has died. This would result in the ship spawning a reserve squadron. A tender would allow the player to spawn all their squadrons by docking the fighters that have already spawned.The only way this could work properly is to let the fighters dock to the ships they were spawned from.
