How You Do?
This process is not very clearly shown, but it makes the game MUCH more enjoyable, if, like me, you thought that the only way to reassign drones was to select them one at a time and right click it’s new controller, so I thought I would share what I discovered so you don’t get frustrated with what might appear to be a more tedious system than it really is!
The drone hubs get auto pinned to your hotbar, with a number underneath representing how many drones it controls. With a hub selected, you can click the second button on the hub’s info panel to dismantle the drones into drone prefabs, then select a different hub and click create drone from prefab…
It’s That Simple!
The process is near instant, and makes managing your drones SO much easier! I tend to mass-move a bunch of drones to cover a landing zone whenever I bring new resources to help unload faster, and then rebalance them across the other hubs when done.
