[Feature request] Need a way to prevent shooting of enemy ships that need to be captured.

Postby user12334 » Sun May 20, 2018 8:28 pm

I want to capture enemy ships, but they move and get destroyed by automatic fire of my ships.
This is very irritating, I have to restart battles many times until I capture any ship.

I suggest one of following features to resolve this problem:
1. Ability to order ships to hold fire.
2. Ability to discharge weapons somewhere into space, not only on enemy ships.
3. Ability to mark specific enemy ships so as to not attack them without order. (Maybe automatically mark ships after CAPTURE acrtion on them.)

You can already stop ships firing. You can click on the weapons on the ship and when they are red they will not fire on any target. Please note that PD weapons will only fire at missiles, torpedoes and small craft so they wont fire at any proper ships.

Could not find any place where clicking on them will make them red.
Please provide a screenshot.

Right-clicking on a weapon line in the status pane will disable the weapon from firing.
