The only questions I have are these.
1 Will the TEC, Vasari, and Advent defensive structures target enemies like sins of a solar empire , entrenched, diplomacy, and rebellion.
2 If not. Why was that decision made? (Personal opinion) Because the whole purpose of a autonomous defense structure is to defend the base while the fleet is away or to prevent a sneak attack from reaching your fleet at full power by diminishing them.
Please explain it to me I want to understand the thought behind making TEC turrets manual fire on all of the basic gauss towers Because I really do not want to leave my fleet in enemy controlled space while having a medium to large pirate fleet bearing down on my home system or the planet that I build 3 of each shipyard to supply manpower to newly invaded enemy star cluster.
