Summary0020629: Newly Created Scouts are assigned to group when dock is setup in group mode
DescriptionYes, technically I said that docks should assign to group one. However, scouts are generally treated differently, and I wouldn't expect them to join my combat fleet.

I think they shouldn't be assigned to groups when created.
TagsNo tags attached.

I always have a space dock reserved for scouts. I think giving scouts unique behaviour with regard to rallying is guaranteed to confuse people

For normal scouts this workaround works, but for scout (sentry) starships this is a problem because you can only have one starship dock on a planet so you have to constantly switch the group rally on and off. Or produce them on different planets.

Thanks for the heads up.

This can be implemented by adding a check box in the options. "Don't add scouts and sentries to control group from dock." Or, "Override dock control group assignment for scouts and sentries."
