Ben Magma

here they are
1. will npcs be able to fly ships before or after combat?
2. do all npcs assigned to one person have to fly the same type of ship for example i have two twings and one z95 headhunter could i fly the headhunter and have two npcs fly the others?

NPCs will never be able to independently fly ships, if that is what you mean.

Currently you do not need to use actual NPCs to set the ships NPC-controlled, but NPC-controlled ships do need to be the same type. The list of ships you can NPC control is on the NPC rules.

Go to the ships inventory, go to the "Piloted Ships" page, select the ships you want, and select the "Set NPC Controlled" option at the bottom of the page.

Not alone. NPC-controlled ships will follow you, but you can't send ships off to fly independently, and there are no plans to implement something like that as it would be rather unbalancing and would discourage player interaction. Ships that are not NPC controlled by you must be controlled by another player in order to move.

Same story for the same reasons.
