    Don't know if this issue has been raised before . Would it be possible to make the PET be smarter so it doesn't continually try to pick up cargo boxes when your cargo is full ?
    Sometimes when I transfer promerium to my ship I still have some seprom I'm trying to use.
    I keep PET on auto looter to collect bonus boxes but it gets hung up trying to pick up CB's
    If this has ever come up before please let me know

    Hi

    You can find some comments about this issue HERE.
    As for your idea about "smarter P.E.T" you can add it to Update & Idea Pool, where players can affect new features/changes in game, just by posting a great idea, and show the Dev. Team that there is an issue they could look at.

    My PET has never been stuck trying to collect Cargo if my bay is full. I get upset when he does not collect it and find I can not collect it either. So I refine again and sell then he picks it up with no problem.

    Talking about a smarter pet, I've been in Galaxy gates where the pet kame doesn't go off right away it should go off within a few seconds not after 7-8 seconds where I'm taking 60k+ damage.

    Perhaps the PETs are a little..."noble" (?). If I click on a bonus box and interrupt the collection beam, they will ignore the box.

    Not sometimes :/ "Sometimes" I want to smash my PET for its slowness in thinking. It seems that they need a longer time to chose their boxes in the area. It's kind of reaction time.

    I agree that the Kami needs to be reworked as I can never get it to go off when I want it to unless I can circle the NPC's but if I am having to DRAG them it is useless to use the Kami.

    I wish that the PET would collect ALL items in an area instead of jumping all over the place. It seems IF I am near by it always wants to collect the items I am on top of instead of moving away and collecting everything near it. I have only seen it pick everything up in the Pally fields, assuming there is no one else to compete for it, but Bonus Boxes it jumps over some to collect others and never picks them all up.

    Unfortunately the PET doesn't calculate the shortest way. These PET scripts make the PET look like a stupid AI (it even doesn't deserve the I for Intelligence)
    However if you watch 2 well-timed PETs, you can see, that they go exactly the same way. Perhaps there are "weird" calculations.

    But at least it can't "misclick". I have often target accidentally the cloaked enemy ships.

    TY for your many replies. They made me laugh. I am going to copy/paste this original post to idea pool as suggested. And maybe , sometime in the near future our PET's won't look like bumbling fools and getting in the way of our own fire.
    OK to close
