  • Broadside minimum distance - range below which it will turn vessel away from target. Above this range up to Enter range is the active broadsiding range.
  • Enter broadside below this distance - range below which it actively turn the vessel to nominal broadside angle relative straight at target.
  • Leave broadside above this distance - range beyond which it will turn vessel back toward target.
  • Nominal broadside angle - 0 degrees is straight at the target, 90 degrees circles the target. Less approaches, more retreats.
  • Idle Approach Distance - prevent AI from clustering friendly ships together resulting in collisions.
  • Turning Circle - minimum radius ship can turn. Underestimating can produce bizarre AI behaviour as it plots paths the ship cannot follow.
  • Depth Requirement - helps avoid shallows where ship may get stuck
  • Disable Reverse - sometimes AI gets silly. Happens more if vessel cannot turn well. This may help.
