First of all, let’s pretend Formations have been fixed.
What if. . . when you make a formation with Homeworld 2 squadrons, they break the squadron up and become single ships to make a formation. So when they are put into formations, you have a formation of fighters instead of a formation of squadrons of fighters.
And what if when you disband that formation, they go back into their normal squadrons? This would make Homeworld 2 strikecraft fight a little like Homeworld 1, and formations would do what they’re supposed to do.
And my third idea, which is a question, is. . . if those things were implemented, would it be possible to still retain the current system where multiple squadrons just stick together in formation? Could that, somehow, be made an option in the game via hot keys or something?
