Formation patrols ignore axis
Formation patrols ignore axis when assigned patrol zones in the Formation editor. Most often, the patrols appear offset from the actual Threat Axis. i.e. if the Threat Zone is pointing North and a Patrol zone is assigned to it, the ship may take up a patrol zone 90 degrees off the intended placement. This occurs primarily in multi-player games, but has been reported in SP (by Shemar), too.
1. Patrol zone is drawn atop the area marked by the Green zone but appears in the Red area, instead.
Work-around: Simply compensate for the offset by placing the Patrol zone slightly offset in the other direction.
