As noted in a related question, out of sector combat can be a source of heartache and hassle. In building my budding mercantile empire, I don't want to lose ships if I can avoid it. I am aware of the MK3 Blacklist Manager and the emergency jump command but that's not exactly what I'm looking for:
- Blacklisting a sector is great for telling the ships "don't go into this war sector." It's less useful in areas that are super useful / profitable but where maybe sometimes there's going to be a Xenon raid.
- Emergency jump is great as a last-ditch getaway but is too late if the enemy overwhelms you on the first salvo.
What I'd really like is to be able to tell a freighter "If an enemy M6 closes to within 10 KM, evade / change course / jump away." I'd settle for "If you pick up a Big Bad at long range, jump away immediately."
Is this even possible within the existing suite of commands? If not, is there a close-to-official mod that will give me a similar command set?
