2. Match speed and heading? Is there a way to do this automatically?
3. Is there a way to select my target's target (keyboard shortcut)?
That's all for now, keep up the good work!
turning rate depends on several factors:
- Type of ship: Escorts turn fast, Science turn medium, Cruisers turn slow
- Aux. power: aux power affects the turning rate (among other things)
- Engine: Some engines are better at turning than others
