Hi all. Long time reader, first time poster.
First off, I love this game, and I have played it online a few times...but mostly just with friends against the AI. Soon enough I will delve into the true multiplayer, but for now, I'm working on just getting the hang of things.
Ok, on to the question. Lets say, in general, I want to mass activate a skill for a certain ship class I have...How can this be done/is it possible? For example, let's say I have a group of 10 illums and they are all in a group say, designated hotkey 1. Is it at all possible to just hit one and then hit "Q" (or whatever hotkey activates deception) and they all use the skill at once?
As of late, I have been vastly unsuccessful in doing what I just described. I have come to the conclusion that I am either doing something wrong, or it just can't be done this way. I'm currently being forced to click on each ship individually and hit "Q"...Suffice it to say, its rather tedious!
Any insight as to if my above scenario can be completed, please let me know. Also, as a side question, is it possible to "tab target" friendly ships in your fleet? Say, for example (as above) the 10 illums. Can I just tab through each ship, as opposed to having to select each one?
Thanks in advance for all tips/advice/criticism
