Will it be possible to make interceptors automatically react to enemy fighters. Interceptor takes off automatically as soon as enemy fighter comes into LOS. I set initiative to 100 but that didn't seem to work (at least in beta).

It is bit difficult even at the lowest game speed to manually select your fighters and then pick their targets every time you see enemy fighter. And you don't have time to do much anything else if you have to do this tens and tens of times in a row. So I wander if it could be automated?

That is the intent. The AI is still somewhat primative. Later versions will use thier interceptors better. This was something we had already noted

It would also be usefull to command a strike craft to continue (land,refuel,rearm,attack again) attacking a target until the target is destroyed or until the unit has lost to much strenght.

If I remember correctly there was this command already present in detailed orders of the unit. Though not functional yet.
