It seems that after Odyssey, clicking on the 'All Drones In Space' tab on the drone control window near the overview and then 'Salvage' or 'Return To Drone Bay' only causes one of your multiple drones in space to obey the order, whereas before it would cause all your drones within range in space to obey.

It would be good if this can be fixed in a future update so that drone users can once again issue orders to all drones in space at once.

Any ETA on a fix for this?

Usually there's no ETA. As for expecting any fix soon, I don't, you'll only get disappointed as it can take years.

I first heard of this issue on the Mac forum. Are you using a Mac or a PC?

Also be aware that only a few people are getting it. My drones commands work just fine. As far as I know, no one has figured out why some people have this issue.

Well, it's silly how it works so I overlooked it when I was making some changes there in Odyssey.
I have now fixed it, and it should be deployed later this summer.

Wait, what? But for me its not broken! Whats actually going on? Why does this work for most and is only an issue for a few?

If you click a group/folder that contains a few drones, and then click "Engage Target" from the "Selected Item" window, it only works for one of the drones.

I stand corrected :D. Maybe you can also look at some of the older issues I just mailed to you :)

But it works on All of my drones. I do not have this bug. And Im on a Mac.

Or am I doing something else? I right click on the drone group and select "engage target" or other commands, and they all go do it. I do not do it from the selected item window, but the drone window.

I'm playing on PC, before Odyssey I didn't have this issue and could issue orders to all drones by clicking on the 'all drones in space/drone bay' folders.

i'm on PC and i sometime have this bug, but not 100%

this happen for engaging order, and less often, for recalling drones (yeah, i love when i recall a group because they are under attack and only one at a time come home).

glad to see a dev responding, and that the issue will be fixed Soon Big smile

drones need some love, thos poor little things have been ignored for too long

Yes, you are doing something else, this is not a right clicking bug Smile... only in the "selected item" window (when it says"multiple items selected (5)"))
