Cant launch buoys
« on: March 05, 2022, 03:47:00 AM »
Hi all, I've tried creating sensor buoys and a minelayer to set them. I've read on the forums that I needed a tiny MFC to enable this so I included it in the design below. I am using a size 1 launcher with size 1 engineless buoys. Ship design below. I am using the Launch Ready Ordinance command, but nothing seems to be laid - the magazine remains full. Is there something simple I may be missing?

Have the buoys actually been loaded in the tubes?

You can do it manually or by using one of the automated functions.

There is a screen for it by selecting the actual ship from admin drop down, not the fleet.

Both the Ordinance and Transported items tab show 31 buoys on board

What I meant is, under ship combat, are the actual buoys assigned to the lauchers and MFC?

Thanks very much Froggiest - I'm many hours into the game now but still to engage in StS combat - hence I hadn't dealt with that interface. All fixed now and buoyed up!

Cheers
