All Drones Engage Single Target Feature Request

Postby gensesh » Fri Mar 29, 2019 1:58 am

I have access to t2 drones and I use a good shield tank. I want to mine in null -.1 -.2 systems. I've tried the Black Ops drone combat package and my drones just fly out and attack randomly. If there was a way for the application to tell the drones to engage one target at a time survival rates will go up. I could take out the battle ships. If The drones could focus I could go about mining undisturbed.

If you set TinyMiner to check for rats during mining and kill them with combat drones then TinyMiner will switch to the rats overview tab, target the rats and then press the "Alt-E" keyboard shortcut to engage the combat drones on the active target.

So all drones will attack one rat at a time but even with a skiff and 5 medium drones it will take a long time to take down the tougher null-sec rat battleships! Make sure you have correctly set the keyboard shortcuts for managing the drones: "Alt-E" to engage the drones, "Alt-L" to launch the drones and "Alt-R" to return the drones back to the drone bay!
