# 1 Carrier attack pet logic fix
06-09-2011, 11:05 AM
Greetings all,

I've checked in a fix for carrier attack pets that does the following:
  • If the attack pet's primary target cloaks (and the pet is outside of its detection range) it will now attack another enemy target until its primary target comes back out of cloak.
  • If the attack pet's primary target dies, they should no longer fly toward the respawn location of that target.
  • Scramble Sensors now affects attack pets.


This fix should arrive on Tribble at the end of next week.

Its a start SNix, but fine control of pets should be the ultimate goal.

The Devs are never going to learn, people have been asking for pet controls since beta. You even have Federation players asking for Pet controls, that means you should now make that a priority.

Well, this little tidbit of CaptainGeko has me more optimistic then Serpieri. But then, who isn't? :p

Of course "hope to get" is not "scheduled for season 4", but at least they have acknowledged the need and expressed the desire to do it. Can't come soon enough, right?

With a "hope to get" and "in the future" on that post, I'd translate it to:

"We may eventually get to do this, when the day comes that we can't think of anything else to do. Presuming the engine allows it and that we haven't forgotten it by that time. Do not hope for anything before season 10"

to me it seems more of..."I'm sorry we cant hear you over the sound of hoe awsome we are!" Season 4 with better pet controls would be amazing but im not going to hold my breath.

I would be happy with somewhat simple commands for pets like;

Agressive , Passive, Defensive commands and the ability to allow me to set their targets as groups or individuals.

Woah hold your horses snix! We ask for better pet control & now you want to make them confusable by SS? Do you even listen? MORE control, not less.
