If you lower the priority on "Keep Coolant Reserves", then the bot should (in theory) be more apt to using coolant. I find that lowering the priority on "Minimizing Power Usage" also helps too.

I noticed that too, now that you mention it! You can still access the pibot's AI priorities directly through the overview tab as the captain as a workaround.
My guess is that since the pibot was added after the other three bots, it was just overlooked in the UI.

That's not coded for it right now (but it will eventually... I hope!).
What I find works better is setting the AI priority of "Man Station" to zero. That way, you can manually control the ship for repairs, loot, getting unstuck from the environment, and then set the priority back to max. It's better than firing the bot, re-hiring, and then redoing all his priorities, skills, and inventory.

Those games that once you get over a bit of a learning curve, the game is much easier to understand.

Yes, I agree with you Haroldperez, once you get hands on with the game it becomes easier.
