I know the base game has a bunch of issues that are not because of the mod and you guys can only do so much.  I'd like a way to toggle what types of units a capital ship will target.  I'm tired of them firing aimlessly at fighters when there are capitals that are present to target.  Often you tell a ship to target a ship right in front of it and it goes ok, well i'm gonna spin in a circle first and fire at fighters the whole time and then maybe i'll do what you wanted.  So if there was a button to click for target discrimination that would be awesome.

You can't change it in-game, but you can in the code.

Thanks, Captain Obvious. :P

I believe Panzerleader was asking the devs if they could add this feature into the mod. I think that's a really cool idea, actually. It is kinda frustrating when, for instance, star destroyers waste their main battery shots by firing at fighters when there's a Mon Cal cruiser sitting right in front of them.

It's not possible to implement that
I also have a YouTube channel where I talk about mod development and gaming, do tutorials, and Let's Plays. If you like the content, consider supporting it on Patreon
