I picked up a couple of ships earlier that both valued 6 points squad wise. I actually have 4 of these ships to collect. I saw in the character skill points that each level of the 'space command' skill would allow me to control an extra squad of ships so I added one of my spare skill points to allow me to collect all four ships. However nothing seems to have changed?? Have I misunderstood, or the information is wrong?
Nice answer! It didn't indicate that it wasn't implicated on the pop up box on the character sheet page. Obviously I should have done a bit too more reaseach so I won't argue!
Cheers for resolving that for me.
I know that as of today, Space Command is shown as Not Implemented (red X) on the Character Skills page, as does the Vehicle Command skill (also a red X), yet I've been able to squad both BFFs and Jailspeeders.
In neither case did I have to set the piloting of those vehicles to NPC controlled, as I expected to have to do. However, there are other entities that I cannot squad with (like the Sabaoth Destroyer).
Is it possible that ship and vehicle squadding are partially implemented?
EDIT: Or is it possible that being able to control additional entities beside the one you're physically in, is limited to a number up to what would constitute your personal squad, ie: up to 12 slots?
Yes, each ship has a squad number, just like your party size is numbered. Once you hit that number then you are done, no more can be added. BFFs atm are 6 so you can fly one while having a 2nd squaded. but i think all caps are already 12.
