Ok, so does anyone know how to make formations spread so wide when a large ship is in that formation? I mean I want to reduce the space between ships(esspecially the large ones). How can I do that?

The lines you are looking for are in the RTS_CFG file. These are:

// How far apart should ships be when moving in formation float FORMATION_SPACING = 75.0; The stock setting is 100.0. I use 75.0 because it makes it easier to take group pics. At 50.0 or below, the larger ships are constantly bumping off one another.

I have had this problem, and I think there are 2 values to change. I changed the ablve one and when the ships where moving they moved closer, but when they stopped they went back apart. Still not managed to sort it :(

Ooops. Thank you. I forgot completely about the Avoidance Class value which is in the Ship ODF. It tells the game just how big each object is supposed to be.

And the bigger the value for the avoidance is, the longer the space between ships will be? Or is it the other way around?

Odd, that doesn't happen with me and I even have it set at 0.50.
