      Default Droning on....

      Morning all,

      Been having fun with my X3:TC experience.

      Noticing a few small irritations. Drone, Combat or Freight seem to operate on DOS 3.11.

      Fighter, if my transports deploy them I notice that they "seem" to return to the ship afterwards, either that or they are lost and my level 12-20 TS3 pilots replace them with new stock. When I launch drones there seems to be no way to recover them. Am I just used to EVE online and want my drones back or are they a use once deal.

      Freight, wow, these guys should come with shovels to lean on, I mean you send them to work and they straight off start their lunch break. I use the Transfer Freight command under the Trade menu, they launch but dont seem to deliver the frieght or pick up the frieght for so long that I manually command it to Fetch the cargo when it has around 40% of its energy remaining. (all vessels are stationary in the open, Mercury to Elephant is the usual transfer I do like this for ECs to power its Jumpdrive)

      Has anyone developed a mod to improve your drone interaction, or can someone suggest better ways to use them?

      They are as dumb as bricks. Actually the brick would be harder to hit... I prefer to use M5's. But no, you're stuck for now.

      Solved the issue, Brought a Raptor, and filled it with Nova Vangs and a Transfer Beam
