hi, I have a weird thing here: I play as empire and chew through the space battles. fighters and bombers automatically dispense from the star destroyers, but in 50% of the battles, all fighters and bombers stay in the ship - which makes the battles quite a strain on the fleet. is that normal? also: sometimes the entire fleet will hyperjump into a system, and sometimes just a part - with the rest as reinforcment option. is there a fleet cap per system? and heres a third one: i read that the emperor can remove planet corruption. i just never get the "special remove corruption action" field to drag him to in the galactic view. meaning, i can never remove corruption and always loose. what am I missing out here? any help appreciated! thx,

"and heres a third one: i read that the emperor can remove planet corruption. i just never get the "special remove corruption action" field to drag him to in the galactic view. meaning, i can never remove corruption and always loose. what am I missing out here?" Well, I'm not sure about the first two questions, but the Emperor CAN remove corruption. You must make sure that he is completely alone. There can be no other units with him. Then, you just drag him to the corrupted system and you should see the "remove corruption" option. If you don't want to risk the Emperor, then I would build Darth Vader. He can remove corruption too, but he rides in a Super Star Destroyer!

if you have a unit in the first slot of a fleet then that will be the only unit to go into the battle, you have to hyper in the rest. now about the fighters, i dont know. do you have any mods installed?

I know why your fighters arent spawning... it very simple actually... there is a corruption option i think its called bribery, the one that makes units on the ground not make any garrisons... well guess what? it also makes it so there is no garrison made in space...which includes anything that spawns on another unit... in this case fighters... that is why I removed that corruption option from my mod... it just ruined gameplay... there is also another corruption option that if you remove it ... you lose the planet to the zann... no matter how much you built it up you lose it all...

ahhh, that makes sense! i thought it was a bug. thx for the help. now i only have to figure out the emperor thing, or else just go back to eaw standard, since the Zann thing seems to make any proper warfare impossible anyway.
