Friendly fire incident

Recommended Posts

While I quite enjoy the fact that battles are more realistic in the fact that tight formations have the chance to blow each other out of the water, I am currently testing a cruiser battle to see if battlecruisers can actually turn the tide of a battle until a destroyer (apart of my fleet's screening force) decided to drop a full spread of 10 torpedoes at on of my own heavy cruisers because on the other side of it was a hostile heavy cruiser. With that said, is there a targeting algorithm for friendly ships so that they can avoid sinking their own ships in broad daylight?

Torpedoes definitely should be treated as a special case. All ships should never fire torpedoes if there are friendly ship in their fishes' path. There should be a separate condition in the game's code specifically for that.

Concur that AI ships should be competent enough to NOT fire torpedoes through a friendly.  This should not apply to the player, however.  In addition, if an AI ship fires torpedoes and THEN the player decides to alter through the spread...that's okay too.

Been one of my fears in the game, why i rarely put DDs on my side. Im scared shitless that a friendly DD or CL will just derp a big boi spread into my capital ships
