Eversince the Legacy of Romulus patch I have had issues with my ships randomly retargeting other objects and items.
Before this patch and the changes to the interface I have had zero issues with this.
I don't like attacking cubes in STF's and all of a sudden I'm targeting a nanite generator. Or trying to heal my ship and all of a sudden I'm targeting a High yield plasma torp I fired or one of my elite scorpions.
Curious if anyone else is experiencing this random targeting issue I do know that it is happening to one of my fleet mates too so it's just not me.
Hopefully this can get fixed I do like this game but this glitch is quite frustrating and would be one of the things to make me quit.
I get this bug with my fed character all the time now. Generally getting it when tac team is activated, it'll cause me to re-target the closest object (which is usually my hyper-plasma torps) and often cast the tac team buff onto it instead.
i had this bug at first until i learned a workaround for it, so give the following a try and see if it helps:
go to Options -> Controls, make sure Region is set to Space, then find Never auto target objects and Never auto target pets and set them both to On
I've been using this for a while, but the downside is that you can no longer tab through enemy pets, at least I can't. Random fighters buzzing around and the extent of what tab does is make noise while I get more ticked off with every press.
It's insanely annoying to target Tholian web nodes or carrier pets, like the borg command carrier's torpedoes and some of others like tractor spheres. The latter is kind of flakey, sometimes I can't target any of them with tab and sometimes I can target some of them.
I would personally like to see a new option to never target your own pets. Regardless of the method, I would like to see some form of fix sooner rather than later.
