|0002628||FSSCP||FRED||public||2012-03-10 17:24||2012-07-01 21:29|
|Product Version||3.6.14 RC6|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0002628: Can't reform a wing if there's only one ship in the wing|
|Description||If I try to reform a wing in FRED (that is, add more ships to the wing), I can only do so if there are already at least two ships in the wing.|
|Steps To Reproduce||1. Open the attached mission in FRED.|
2. Select the three Hercules fighters on the left and press Ctrl-W to form the wing. You'll be asked if you want to reform wing Beta, as expected.
3. Then deselect the Hercules fighters and select the two Ulysses fighters on the right and press Ctrl-W. Instead of being asked if you want to reform wing Alpha, you'll be asked to specify a name for the new wing.
4. Try to use Alpha as the new wing name (since what you really want is to reform Alpha wing). FRED will tell you that the name Alpha is already being used by another wing.
|Tags||No tags attached.|

Confirmed with FRED 3.6.14 RC6, as well as 3.6.13
This only happens with Alpha wing, or rather, whatever the player's starting wing is initially. Beta, Gamma, etc. can have any number of craft in the wing and still reform correctly.
I checked the FRED documentation, and it even says that before reforming Alpha wing (or whichever wing the player's craft is currently in) that you must break up/disband Alpha wing before proceeding.
To clarify, the current system requires at least 1 NPC in a wing before your able to reform it.
Interesting. I wonder why it's done that way.
The question originally came up because the extended walkthrough in the FREDDocs requires you to reform Alpha wing at some point. I guess I missed the line in the walkthrough that says to disband Alpha wing first (which at that point consisted of just Alpha 1), so I was confused as to why I couldn't reform Alpha wing.
