Fleets 1 to 3
You can move these fleets and engage other star systems and homeplanets of other players by entering the target coordinates to fly to.
You need at least one class 4 ship with a warp drive (for example a mothership) in your fleet to travel in deep space. Most class 4 ships can generate a warpfield around your fleet and open a hyperspace gateway through which the fleets travel. When you loose all your warp capable ships in a fleet, this fleet hangs in space and can only return when you send another fleet with another warp-capable ship.
You can set the attitude to 'attack' , 'defense' or you can define your own secret attack-code. All encountering fleets in space that have different attitudes fight against each other. fleets with the same attitude stay in peace. Fleets with 'attack'-attitude always attack all other fleets. your planet always has a defensive attitude, so if you want others to help you they have to put their fleets on defense also, otherwise they would fight against your planet.
