Salvage corvette AI and carriers

Salvage corvettes will not capture ships by taking them to a carrier if the mothership is still alive. However, if you scuttle the mothership the corvettes are able to capture ships by using a carrier. They should carry captured ships to the nearest carrier/MS that can fit it.

I’ve also found that telling multiple corvettes to salvage one ship (more than is needed) will not make the additional salvagers follow and take over if one dies as they would in HW1c.

I’ve noticed these things also.
You really have to keep eyes on salcaps. It’s distracting. It takes more capture ships than HW2 and they’re harder to use and easy to loose.
They should be able to use carriers even if the MS is still alive. Otherwise they’re at even more disadvantage compared to HW2.
