I was just wondering would it be possible to have standard task force template. the reasoning goes like this:
you create task force template - number of ships, orders, positions (if possible). then after battle you click on a button and reinforce that task force to full fighting status, of course, you have to wait for those reinforcements to arrive, but you get the idea.
also it would work well with creating taskforces. something like moo3, but slimmer. set up a point where task forces are created, say how many you want to build, wait till your planets crank it up and voila, no such thing as manually setting each vessel to task force.
that way you don't have to constatly change production of planets to different types.
