Force Manual Beams?

posted Jul 18, 2013 17:07:02 by TravisHead
I think I know the answer, but is there a way to force the tactical officer to use manual targeting?
I want to simulate an instance where targeting is offline so the crew needs to fire manually but I am not seeing anything of the sort so far.

I don't think this is possible with the current scripting system. You could set up a situation where the only way to win is to disable the impulse/weapons/maneuvering of an enemy with enormous shields. That might do it.
"Damn the torpedoes! Four bells, Captain Drayton!"

(Likely actual words of Admiral David Farragut, USN, at the battle of Mobile Bay. Four bells was the signal for the engine room to make full steam ahead).

Ya, I was afraid of that.
Trying to go all Wrath of Khan but I will have to settle for shields and sensors being offline.
(and I'm faking the sensors)
