|0005531||AI War||Suggestion - Game Mechanics||Jan 30, 2012 5:33 pm||May 11, 2012 2:13 pm|
|Fixed in Version||5.025|
|Summary||0005531: FRD Mechanics and Redirector Rally Posts|
|Description||Originally I made a thread here: http://www.arcengames.com/forums/index.php/topic,9740.0.html [^]|
to see if this was intended.
Basically, FRD (Free-Roaming Defender) has recently been changed, causing it to act differently than it has for most of AI War's existence. FRD used to be a cross-planet command that you could use, which would cause your units to travel from planet to planet, destroying every enemy unit in their path, before moving on.
FRD has recently changed to never activate until the units given the order reach their final destination planet. This means that they will ignore enemy units on their path between systems. One major unfortunate drawback about this new behavior is that a player can no longer make automated cross-planet patrols with Redirector Posts.
For me at least, this was a wonderful feature, and was a huge part of how I played the game. I certainly like the way the new FRD works, but in some cases the old FRD is really important as well.
I suggest we implement both FRD modes back into the game, and assign them to different hotkeys:
1.Cross-Planet FRD (like the old one) that would force your units to destroy all the units on each planet before moving on.
2.Local/Focused FRD (like the current one) that only "activates" once the units reach their destination.
I would also really appreciate if the "colored outline" of the ships were different for each command, so the player(s) could tell the difference.
Thanks for your consideration.

|I'm guessing that when there is no cross-planet movement, "normal move through planets, FRD at destination" and "FRD move through all planets" would actually have the same behaviour?|

|Yes, they would be exactly the same.|

|I much preferred the old FRD behavior, it would definitely be nice to have the option to use it again.|
