There was a problem with a ship engine that gives you the flee ability seperately from your skill tree,
Thank you for your reply!
Sorry, that is what I meant. I've played fleet officer and bounty hunter, in various ships, on Mac and Windows, and the Traveller Escape engine never adds a flee option in combat.
I just redownloaded the Mac version (Release 1.1 according to the credits), started a Bounty Hunter, bought a Traveller Escape engine for the Stargun - still no flee option. I will test the Windows version before the weekend is over.
Side note, just realized I have only ever played Outer Rim, in case that has any effect on things.
And by the way, thanks for making the turn-based spacer RPG I never knew I needed! It's already great, but it would be greater if my Fighter Captains had a chance to escape all these Pirate Pattons ...
