Fleet QOL improvements

Recommended Posts

Two simple improvements to fleet mechanics in port.   When I assign a ship to fleet...  if I have available crew.. . put the crew on the boat.   

When I try to teleport with a ship in fleet, send the ship to the docks automatically.  I promise, none of us think we can catch a flight to Tumbado with a pirate frigate in our check luggage.   Just park the boats and teleport us without requiring 30 more seconds of switching to the fleet, sending ships to docks, waiting for the ui to refresh, switching back to outposts and teleporting again.   

Neither are big deals... but neither should be a big deal to fix either!  There's no situation where a person would want to do anything else, so just make them automatic.

And when I send a ship to fleet, just disable my knowledge slots, but back in the docks, activate the knowlodge slots again :)

You would be surprised how many people would be confused by this. 

Where did my fleet go?

How come my crew got too low?

Believe me I know people that would contact the devs and demand their missing crew back

I find it annoying as well but at least I know what is going on. Best I would see as a solution is making it an in game options tick box: “auto fill crews” tick

”auto unfleet ships when towing” tick

Really?  Perhaps.  Options are great.

When I leave port with a few missing crew on my ships, I don't get messages that I do not have full crews.  When I sail with only stern chasers I don't get massages that I am missing some cannons.  Haven't seen complaints about this.

The game should be smart enough to autocrew and autodock fleet ships.  It autocrews main ships.  Teleported Players will figure out that their fleet ships have been docked, just like their main ship was.

But options are nice.
