iv been looking for a mod that basically gives yousome of the same options as the computers and more realism:

like in a fight, bribe the enemy ship, or offer a crew member. be able to lure in pirates to you by sending out a distress signal when you still have fuel.
be able to accept a bribe from a computer and still destroy them. seriously there is nothing stopping you from takeing their stuff and blowing them up if it was realistic.
Another idea is if you have teleporters and you find a slaver ship you can teleport a slave onto your ship and try to get away.
do you think options like that can be included in your mod? :ugeek:

I'm going to safely say 'no' on these because all the stuff you're asking for is hardcoded into the game. Maybe if Overdrive gets completed, such things will be moddable, but right now it's just not possible. Sorry. :?

1 - Technically possible if you use a "escape" event with a timer that's super crazy long. It can only be triggered by damaging the enemy ship so if you're losing it wouldn't trigger.
2 - Impossible and we also didn't want something like this because it allows for easy grinding for scrap without the use of fuel.
3 - This is possible. You just have an extra option in a ships 'surrender event' after you accept their surrender. We didn't want to add this because if we did it is literally the only option anyone would choose because you get 2x scrap. Limits the amount of ways you can play the game.
4 - You can do it via a <choice req="teleporter"/> but not by literally going on board their ship and taking someone, or something.
If you're having hull problems, I feel bad for you son. I've got 99 problems but a breach ain't one.
