Can we add squads to fleets?I want the fleet icon to for movement and positioning, but squads for attacking, defending and retreating.
Example: My fleet would consist of 2 kols, 2 dunovs, 15 cobalts, 5 Garda, 5 carriers and 5 LRMs. My fleet command ship would be a kol, 1 squad would be the 15 cobalts, another 5 gards, another 5 carriers, another 5 lrms.
This way I could give my fleet an order to move from my planet to the enemies astroid. Once they arrive I could send each squad a specific order. ie. garda squad defend the dunovs, cobalt squad hunt down enemy carriers, if my fleet gets too out of control though, I'd want to be able to regroup, retreat or pursue fleeing enemies with the fleet leader.
Now I do like ctrl groups and all which are ok subsitutes, but they don't provide a quick visual representation on teh battle field. If I could look and see 5 different squad icons i'd be able to pop in and out of grav wells much quicker.
