Okay, yeah I figured it had to be a thing, but I didn’t know if it was solved.
I tried all of the combinations of:
NewShipType.dontDockWithOtherRaceShips=1 or 0
NewShipType.ignoreRaceWhenDocking=1 or 0
and I couldn’t get them to stop docking, but now I know what I was doing wrong:
This setting in the ship-that-docks, stops them from docking with other races:
BUT not if you own the other-race-ship that they should dock with. So don’t capture those ships from other races and the problem should hardly ever come up.
Very good, I was thinking that I would have to get rid of the docking ability of the repair ships and change the HW1 resource controllers into the HW2 models. That would REALLY solve the problem I guess, but that might be changing people’s strategies with the HW1 guys too much. And then the HW1 models wouldn’t be used.
I might end up doing that anyway though, since I wanted to give the HW1 guys some squadroned units. The repair abilities would be beefed up, so the support units aren’t completely useless. Have to think about it…
Thanks for the help!
