While imagining protocols for a fleet, I came across the problem that sending each ship to another solar system by themselves is a waste of a lot of chetherite. It seems feasible to get around this by allowing ships to hitch a ride on a larger ship which can ferry fighters or even small corvettes to the target. We have a few options if we want to attempt this.
- Place fighters in a hangar inside the larger warship
- Connect fighters to the larger warship with pistons
- Connect fighters to the larger warship with docking tubes (docking tubes don’t work right now if I recall correctly, but nonetheless if they did work it’d be a viable option)
Which idea is a better concept? Any additional concepts?
