Is it yet possible improve NPC XP, and subsequently their SP? If so, how is it done? I checked to see if there were any threads on this subject, but they're rather old. Thanks for any assistance regarding this matter. Cheers!
Yse you can. Primary method is walking on the ground with them in your party. I think they also get XP for: builders when building facilities, workers when producing, possibly dirt haulers when mining though not sure about that. Maybe some others.
Was just wondering: do you have to walk with the NPCs the whole time, or can you tell one group to move to a certain square while you force march a 2nd squad (and both squads get the exp or the first squad still moves but only the squad you are leading gets the exp)
To get the experience? Or just to move them at all?
In the Party dropdown menu it has "Command: Move to Room", does that only work in ships? And it would have to be ships that don't have locked doors at all (tried moving an item from entrance to hanger bay but because there is a door to the cockpit it wouldn't move, even though the locked door was not anywhere in between)
Also, what does the "Squad: Follow Me" mean? Ah know the obvious answer, but if they are in your squad, wouldn't they follow you anyway? Or is this a way to move more than 12 NPCs at a time? (and would the 2nd, or 3rd, squad following you also get the expereince? or just the ones in your personal party)
Tiali, in my experience, all of the ship's doors have to be unlocked for the "Move To Room" to work. As for the squads, you can only have one squad at a time. This is in addition to the NPCs in your party.

Clarr, I tried to put together a couple of squads, but got this message in a red info bar, as I tried to set up my second squad...
You can not lead any more squads
Now, perhaps it's because I just threw some test squads together. The first contained 2 NPCs, the second had 3. Though that doesn't seem like it would make much of a difference except for the fact they were not true squads of 12.
In any case, this has proven to be an informative thread, and as soon as I set down on somebody's planet, I'm gonna give these lazy sons-o-banthas a good walking! Thanks all.
