I'm working on a convoy escort mission where I want Klingons to warp in and start attacking the freighters. My efforts so far have only resulted in the Klingons spawning and sitting there in the middle of the convoy. Any ideas?

What are the specific mob names you used?

You can technically have NPC Groups fight - just not all groups will do it though.

I used a Weak Klingon - frigate GROUP and had them spawn in the middle of a group of individually placed generic freighters. I don't recall assigning a faction for the freighters. Maybe that is the issue?

BTW- Thanks for making the tutorial videos. I watched the first two and they helped me get up on the learning curve quickly.

It seems the general "problem" is that NPC ship groups have their allegience built in. If you wand Federation ships to fire on a Starfleet Captain, you need to take some faction that's hostile to the federation and give it Fed costumes.

I am not really surprised it is that way because I suspected something like that before the Foundry was announced, still, not sure I would have implemented it that way...

Today I have made my first map aond one of the things was playing around with different ship groups on the same map. I used Breen sips with the new Vulcan ship's costume and Klingon and Orion ships. This lead to infighting between the ships, since Klingon and Orions considered themselves hostile to the Breen-Vulcan ships...

Based on further experimentation, it seems that I can only get the NPC groups to fight each other using appropriate factions. The individual NPC contacts can not be made to fight. At least I don't know how, that is.

Therefore I think we need to have a freighter group that is tagged as Federation and one that is tagged as Klingon for my original mission concept to work.
