Hi, I'm Data

Post by Commander Data » Wed Aug 31, 2016 10:46 pm

Hi everyone, I just bought the game but I have been keeping up with the progress of the game for about 9 months.
I have a question, can you send bots down on missions?
First mission on elrius-9, I beamed down but it was scary ( not really) so I wanted my weapons specialist. Is there anyway to do this?
Thanks
Data

Hi Commander Data

Welcome. I'm new here myself and had my first proper play session last night - loved it!
I don't think bots follow you on away missions I'm afraid

This is something that gets discussed every so often. Bot AI is still a work in progress and, currently, they will not follow you off-ship nor will they perform certain functions on-ship (EG fire missiles).

However, it appears that the intention is that bots will be able to do this in future updates. If you take a look at the dev announcements and progress videos, you'll see some of developments they are working on. In the meantime, think of them as a skeleton crew; able to perform primary functions essential to the running of a ship (piloting, shooting, etc), but without any specific abilities.

the current state of AI can actually be taken advantage of. You just have to figure out your tactics beforehand. They're also great at throwing at npcs on planets if you put points towards custom DNA and pistol.

I've defeated bosses using only AI crew. AI accuracy really sucks though so it does take a while.

you can make them follow by pressing Z and choosing Stay close to Captain everyone will follow except the pilot

Hi Commander Data, you wouldn't happen to be the commander data that use to do textures / graphics for mods in Elite Force?
