NPC Ships

Postby Mooncrest » Fri Nov 30, 2018 11:22 am

There are now loads of NPC ships that seem to be loitering at most of the Inner Systems; in particular Apollo and Ceres.

I am wondering is Jam can distinguish between those that are still carrying out their orders and those that are merely 'partying'.

If he can perhaps he could disband them; sending the pilots back to Crew status and returning the ships to the SS Plato Hangar of the owner.

If he cannot, he could, perhaps, just disband all NPC Ships and we could start over.

I would not be too bothered by this as I have numerous small ships, Class 5 or less, in use by NPC pilots which I would gladly have disbanded in order to reassign the NPCs to bigger ships.

It would like everyone's opinion on this before I send a proposal it to Jam. I may be something he could organise while still working on the New Game.

Hi,

I just made my 4 own lvl15 ships and would like to keep them :)
If only the NPC ships from Ceres and Apollo are removed then I have no problem with that.

Players will not lose their ships, but they will have to reassign pilots to ships and give new orders.

The ships in Ceres and Apollo are the most nuisance, as they do seem to have totally forgotten what their orders are. Limiting the exercise to those ships would help somewhat.

I have no issue with moon's proposal, I did once unintentionally assign an npc pilot my lev w/ HD, would be nice to have the ability to reassign them or have the ability to regain access to any npc ship you wish. That being said, it may possible to just make any ship that has no orders go dormant so they don't bog down any system.
