Thread: Combining Fleets With Established Admirals

    Default Combining Fleets With Established Admirals

    Now that I've gotten back into playing M2TW some curiosities I'd noticed back in the day are coming back to me. One thing that always seemed strange is how you're not able to fully combine fleets. I assume this is because the captain of the fleets has reached at least a 1-star admiral status. I'm wondering if there is any way to combine all ships even once this has happened?

    You cannot merge fleets were both admirals have a trait\ancillary. It's a known bug. The best way to increase fleet numbers is to leave them in the port until you finish recruiting the required number: there is a trait or two that gets given already when a fleet is created, automatically disqualifying it from merging.

    Interesting, so it's actually a bug. Always thought it was bizarre you couldn't merge once the captain gained a single star.

    Is there a particular mod that keeps the game fairly close to Vanilla but fixes some of the oddities/broken functions like this? I know saying broken is ambiguous, but I mean more like how you can't combine fleets, etc...

    Most mods have removed the triggers that give traits on creating a fleet, in fact you can do that easily yourself. Look for 'NewAdmiralCreated' and delete those triggers. then look for 'AgentCreated' triggers and add a 'and not AgentType admiral' to the conditions.
