I'm going to interject into this discussion instead of creating a new one. In light of the new available CP droids, I have some questions...
I just picked up two CP droids. As of now in the game, what can they do? Can they only join my party and follow me around? Do they have a function in the game? How do you activate/deactivate or control them? I found out how to supervise/unsupervise them, but that is about all.
Adding them to your party - or leaving them somewhere - is about all you can do with any droids right now, Matheteis. Functions for droids should be coming up soon on the implementation list, after Items and/or NPCs, I believe.
"May the Grace of Ara go with you, and His Vengeance be wrought upon your enemies."
Interesting. I just got a cp droid and put in my ship, where it seems to take up cargo volume as well as count as a passenger. Is that a bug or is it suppose to count as both? I thought it was suppose to only count as cargo when it was deactivated and only count as a passenger when it's activated. I also have nothing else on my ship except for myself and the droid and couple of items I'm carrying, so I can't imagine where else the volume is coming from.
The breakdown computation is an ancient rule that has not been implemented, whether it will be or not is a different matter but I expect it will be replaced when maintance is looked at. Currently theres no chance of break down.
Droids should not count as cargo when there passengers, report it as a bug.
Would it be possible for a list of such ancient rules to be compiled, so that people don't have to worry as much about them? The Ship module section, droid breakdowns, and others, cause a lot of meaningless trouble.
I recently acquired some CP droids. At creation, some droids were assigned to me, some were not (probably because they were same type as ones already assigned to me ...??) I had to assign these droids to myself so I could add them to my party.
The droids also take up passenger slots on my ship, and take up cargo space.
Edit: It was just announced on Sim News that the assignment 'bug' has been fixed
