I would love features that help make looping easier to set up. Right now, in a game where I have 100 stars and 30K ships, if I want to organize my ships to advance to the front lines I will spend hours setting up loops due to painstaking edits of carrier actions at each star in my loop.
I believe time and tedium can be reduced with the addition of an upfront way to define Carrier Waypoint Action when selecting the Carriers Waypoints. If I can normal (left) click stars 1 through 5 to make those Waypoint Actions “Collect all”, and then control click star 6 to make that Waypoint Action “Drop All”, then alt click star waypoints 7-10 to make those waypoint Actions “Do Nothing” it could be so much easier to set up loops.
“Do nothing” action if right click. “Drop all” action if alt (aka option on mac) click. “Collect all” action if normal click". This way, I can set a carrier to move through a 10 star loop, ending at its origin, without having to painstakingly edit every action at each star after setting the waypoints.
Really all I need is right click to define “Drop All”. Please! I think it would help immensely.
Also, to all readers, please help refine this idea if you like it
