I've been away from the game for a while, so I would like to clarify some of the apparent rules changes that occurred whilst I was gone.
Mainly, is it true that you can now form squads with dissimilar ships? If so, is that true even if the ships are of a different class (fighters and freighters for instance)? Will squads of dissimilar ships still jump to hyperspace in unison like squads of identical ships used to?
Do pilot droids or pilot NPCs need to be in the cockpit of each ship in the squad, or is that still not necessary?
