Hi, how do I set the distance of enemy ships to the Playership when the player arrives to the next Navpoint? Acctualy I have the problem that the enemy ships appears nearby the player.

Can I set the radius by the mission editor or have I to script that?
How do I do that by missioneditor or script?

The player is at the same location as he started at in nav one. If the enemies are too close to the player, move them away in the mission editor. Use the zoom in or out buttons in the mission editor if you need to. There is no radius to set.

Same Here

eddieb, I'm also having problems with the enemy ships on my 6 and can't turn to face 'em. I've D/Ld the 1.6 ver and also the 1.61 patch. Forgive me, but, I happen to be one of those Old Guys that can't keep up with programming and such, but love a good game to play. How do I turn on the Mission Editor to adjust player ship away from enemy ship. Is this Editor ingame or is it a stand alone program. I'm all ears for suggestions/directions.

It's a known problem, the AI is terrible, it always gets on your 6. The editor is a standalone program.

Now that I know that the Mission Editor is a stand-alone program, next question will be - Where can I obtain it. I read somewhere that I'd use the 'zoom-in and zoom-out' keys. Eddieb, it may help some of us less Techno types if you could post a little How-To on things like this subject so that 'we' could play and then report on the gameplay of your project. Thanks for listening.
