so i set it up so my ships dont go to warp unless its a bit of a trip... but when i have more than one ship... like a fleet or just 2 ships... 1 will stay in warp and the other will jump in and out to stay with the other ship. what do i do to fix this without making all the ships the same speed?
I don't know of any fix, as the slower ship(using impulse) can't keep up with the faster ship. It uses warp for a second or two to catch up.
a few years back someone posted here about it. there is a way.... but i cant remember who posted it. something about the rest of the ships slowing down in fleets so the slow ones dont have to warp to keep up. i just think it looks dumb having ships bounce around on the screen. ya know?
You should be able to hold down control and click for all ships to move at the same speed if I recall correctly :)
Have you tried setting your ships in a formation? IIRC, ships in a formation will keep station on the slowest ship automatically.
