ShipGroups vs. escort_roles

Post by montana05 » Wed Feb 21, 2018 12:55 pm

Is there any difference if I create a group and assign escorts to it like here:

"GNSS-GN_battlegroup-leviathan" =
{
"like_ship" = "GNSS-leviathan";
"escorts" = "16";
"escort-role" = "navy-battlegroup-escort";
"roles" = "navy-behemoth-battlegroup(0.50)";
};


or just use

escort_roles =
(
{ role = "navy-transport"; min = 5; max = 5; },
{ role = "navy-frigate"; min = 3; max = 3; },
{ role = "navy-viper"; min = -4; max = 4; },
...
);


If I am not wrong both doing actually about the same.

Well, since there was no response from the gurus I assume that my observation was correct and both acting about the same. Since the battle-groups in Galactic Navy only spawn the carriers plus escorts its time to update this code tomorrow.
