spacecrafts. Each capital class ship has three squadron slots. How many ships
in each slot is purely dependant on the type of capital ship. The squadrons are
labeled appropriately as 1, 2 and 3.
The first step is to create your squadron. To do this, simply place small
spacecrafts into one of your hangars on your capital class ship, and use the
following command while in the bay with the ships.
SYNTAX: Squadron add <Squadron #> <shipname>
Squadron remove <shipname>
Now that you have formed your squadrons, it is time to sort them into
positions: Outer, Midguard, and Center. Positions are used to organize your
squadron into protective layers. Only ships in the outermost layer can be hit
or targeted, so it may be important to keep your vital ships in the center and
surround yourself with your squadrons.
SYNTAX: Squadron position <squadron #> <Position #>
You have formed your squadron and set its positions! From the bridge, you'll be
able to launch, control, and recall your squadrons. Scrambling a squadron
automatically opens whatever hangar(s) they are in. To recall your squadrons,
you must have the bayspace and hangar(s) open, or else your ships cannot be
fully recalled! The recall flag is toggle-able, so that if you change your mind
you can turn it off and leave them in space.
SYNTAX: Squadron scramble <Squadron #>
Squadron recall <Squadron #/all> <on/off>
The squadron AI is more advanced than traditional autopilot AI. Launched
squadrons act like the old `scramble` system and act as semi-intelligent groups
With the squadron command, you can also control your squadron to just about
anything you can do as if you were on the ship itself.
SYNTAX: squadron nav <Squadron #/all/shipname> <command>
(NOTE) A full list of commands can be found on HELP NAVCOMMANDS
Squadron target <Squadron #/all/shipname> <victim/none>
In addition to attacking ships, should you position the squadron over a planet,
it will be possible to bombard the planet using projectiles. Bombarding can
perm players, and may have serious repercussions if used flippantly. Use this
command with care.
SYNTAX: squadron bombard <planet>
