Summary0021489: Selection group for permanent mercenaries like war siegers/harvesters?
DescriptionWar Seigers and War Harvesters are the main ones that will be controlled by the player. It's sort of unfortunate that they can't be assigned to go with a control group. Could there be an auxiliary fleet made for them to enable that? Here is a save with them available for summoning.

Of course, an alternative is to make them timed..

They're not part of your faction. Can you actually control them? Making them have a fleet would not be too big a deal probably.

Yes, they can be controlled.

From experiments with Mercenaries spawning a Flagship, units given to you ignore the timer set on them.

Huh. Having players control the mercenaries wasn't really intended, was it? It wasn't intended by me when I wrote the mercenaries.

You added that in for me before I had source access, specifically for these two groups.
