Intrepid firing by itself

Post by Wanderer » Sat Dec 10, 2016 10:53 am

Playing single player, and with no bots, my ship has started to fire by itself. It's an Intrepid class ship so has no auto turrets. It's got damned good aim I'll give it that, but nonetheless I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to do that. :lol:

I have a save game one jump away from the sector with the enemy ship this behaviour started with, so could easily send the save if needed to trace the bug.

I'm pretty sure this is a feature. All ships have autoturrets as far as I am aware.

Most normal (non-mega) turrets have limited auto targeting capability. They aren't as effective since they can only charge at half speed without an operator.

Hope this helps

Thanks, I hadn't realised non auto-turrets had some automatic capabilities, just found the auto targeting option and turned it off :)
