Misjumps by fleets?

Postby HalC » Fri Feb 09, 2018 1:37 pm

Hello Folks,
I was struck by an odd thought...

If a fleet attempts to jump together, and the primary ship misjumps - does the rest of the fleet automatically misjump with it?

Just a thought.

It would depend on why the misjumped. If it was a result of a navigation error then yes, all ships would be using bad data. If it was a result of the ships encountering a large planetary body in the path of their jump then yes, they should all misjump together. If it was the result of a mechanical failure (or using unrefined fuel) or some other error isolated to a single ship, then on, the fleet would proceed as expected and the single ship would misjump on it's own.
