Can it be fixed too to not touch my poor invading forces with explicit orders to invade totally different locations?
By virtue of the 'instanced combat' design all ships in sector are pulled in space combat if engaged. Their orders are retained (if not already completed prior to being pulled) and will continue with their order after the engagement if the battle is not lost. This is working as intended.[/quote]
Well, I see that it's by design... but why
it must be so?
Ah, forget it.
Anyway, I believe, it _not_ works as intended for invaders... or at least, I wasn't able to notice it. After each "engage"->battle over planet sequence, all my invaders are around this planet. And never arrived to former invading targets. I didn't notice, if "invade" orders are still here (but I believe, they are not). I'll check it later, I hope.
