I have a "R1 Series Astromech" droid in the cockpit of my capital ship with a hangar/docking bay. But when my ship is travelling in hyperspace/sublight and I enter a ship/vehicle, my ship still aborts the travel.
Have the droid's function been cancelled? Have I missed something? Is this a bug?
As a matter of fact, I tried other pilot droids as well, including the RX pilot droid, and it didn't work :)
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I recall that the R1 droid did work this way in the past, and he had a Capital Ship Piloting skill back then. It's still marked as "partially implemented" on the Rules page along with the pilot droids for that very reason :)
Yes they used to work because they DID have Capital Piloting and RX used to be pilots too, apparently we can thank Arete for flipping the piloting skills around on all of the droids and not even as much as letting anyone know -_-
But I am pretty sure it worked for me when I boarded vehicle inside of BFF where I had piloting droid, so I think its just Arete being bad with communication (or just evil Asim =P) and not a bug as such.
