Enemy starfighters do not engage, they explore the map instead

I am playing the Thrawn Campaign as the Rebels and everything is working perfectly, but there is something on tactical battles that bothers me a lot. When Imperials attack any planet of mine, during the space battle their starfighters do not engage mine, they just wander off and explore the map. After a long time, they come back to their carriers and start engaging my starfighters. This is annoying, because I am able to inflict too much damage with my own fighters against capital ships with no anti-starfighter weaponry of their own. For instance, the AI attacked me with a big force of Star Destroyers on Obroa-Skai, and I was able to destroy like four of them with my 12 squadrons of X-Wings and my 4 Assault Frigates. If their starfighters had engaged mine, I would only have been able to destroy one Star Destroyer. Any thoughts on this issue?

This is a problem we are very aware of. It requires the tactical battle AI to be reworked significantly, and that is not something we did for v1.2. Expect revisions to that in later versions of the mod.

Phoenix Rising, head of mapping. Thanks to everyone who got us to the position below!

Classic vanilla AI. I haven't been able to overhaul tactical yet... that'll be another version.
