Post Make a way to statis bots without destroying them.
this si the third time in a month i have logged in to find my bots 2 to 10 million out with no clue how the hell they got there. I cannot afford to keep replacing these things, and more to the point this is so blatantly obvious it should have been put in ages ago. There are going to be times when your bots wander off and you need to recall them without having to sit there and wait for them to come back. Please make force stasising bots a thing. ty.

Are these combat bots or trade bots?

Mining bots, which for some reason keep flying off into the wild black yonder only for me to log in and find them 6 to 8 million distance out...in 8 hours.

Until the bots drifting out multiple to infinity is fixed, this really needs to happen so at least players can stasis+tow them.

The best way would of course be to track down and fix the bug that causes this, but in the meantime would anyone object to allowing towing of active bots (instead of just ones that are in stasis)?

That would also work and help with bots being stranded in inactive galaxies.

This is the exact issue with bots drifting out which the developer team have tried to fix for years, and gave up on :lol:

I like the non-stasis towing idea. I'd also find it pretty useful to have a no-damage intentional stasis option. Now that they don't defend themselves while the owner's out of the galaxy it's a pain in the ass to be able to defend yourself on the way to squad content you can't bring them along for. They're going to be in stasis either way when you come back, it'd be nice if it didn't cost you & the shields weren't depleted.
