independent movement added recently?

Post by sentinelhawk » Fri Jul 04, 2014 9:25 pm

Hello,

Brief back story I played the game about 9 months ago all the way from beginner through black hole. Now I come back and checking as thinking something changed. Am I just losing it or has the crew always been a bunch of dumbass workaholics?

Why if I give the crew an order do they have independent thought process and try to head back to their station? Seems to be a crossroads as Sims do not inherently follow directions. Is this supposed to be a star trek-esque romp through the cosmos or Sim ant(like what I did there)? I don't know that it's taking the lazy way out to hunker down in a portion of the ship when it's entirely boarding defense battles (Mars for example). Option to turn off?

This was a new option with a poorly chosen default "enabled" state. It's feature was meant to auto manage your crew when they become idle to go back to their assignment. There should be a setting in the options menu that you can turn off "Auto Return when Idle".
