I've been thinking about the Rebel Satellite encounters and when they surrender. Sometimes they do so, sometimes they don't, sometimes they fire missiles and sometimes you get an AI avatar.

Maybe the surrender should work like this:

Satellite: We surrender
You: Fine. Let's see if you'll be honourable.
Satellite goes neutral.
Satellite: Fooled you! I'm not surrendering! This was a badly executed distraction!
Satellite goes hostile.

Or you know, the satellite is honourable and you get stuff. But it should go neutral so that means if you were targeting it with auto-fire or anything like that, you have to target it again when it goes back to hostile.
Just a thought.

With 0 fuel? (seen on screenshot)

Does waiting work independently from having piloting manned? I'm not sure... Right, so if this actually was a problem then defender ships should probably loose the ability to flee I guess. In that case nice catch. Still, people seem to get mislead a lot by the fact that you don't have piloting manned there. :D Do you still have that save? Can you try if manning piloting enables you to wait?

I've been encountering out of fuel events for quite some time.
If you want to access the jump menu and then wait for activity, you have to have someone in the room. They don't have to stay there, just as long as someone is there to "press the FTL button"

Because the enemy had 3 shield bars = 1 shield bubble + 1 buffer bar. It disabled 1 bar, so enemy lost buffer (retaining bubble). System bars != shield bubbles. 2 shield system bars = 1 shield bubble.

I'm +1 for giving swallow the requisition license back (in fact, it is exactly what I'm doing with my personal micro-mod for vanilla ship layouts), and I see nothing wrong with giving Bounty Hunter license to Nisos in CE's showcase (as I wills till use vanilla layouts, so I will retaing the very usefull 3-free augments slots ;) Bu, seriously talking, anyone wanting to have "perk" of no augments, can just sell it in first shop...)

OTOH, I still hope to see awesome wingmen idea implemented for fed cruiser s whole, one day ;)

Now I think I understand. Your saying the enemy vessel had 3 shield points, the effector disrupted 1 but since the other 2 were still intact the ship was able to maintain 1 shield bubble? Gotcha... sorry about that. I didnt know enemy ships did that now, or ever did for that matter.

The "unreliable" prefix doesn't change mentioned radius (every shot gets to the center).

The burst laser mark III had wrong description when it says "shots per charge 1".

Yes, you got it right :) BTW, this is the same reason why many times - when you're not using effector - damaging shield system for 1 damage doesn't bring down a shhield bubble.

Can you tell these enemy ships to stop trying to escape into hazard zones? I was fighting a Rock ship over a sun, then they decided "Hey that asteroid belt looks like a good place to hide!"

I decided to linger a bit after the next asteroid killed them to see what would happen. Solar flare happened without warning. So both hazards are there.

I've also encountered ships who are already over an asteroid belt and they decide to flee... into an asteroid field. So nothing actually happens.

Have to say though, the asteroid sitting over a sun background is rather pretty.

dual hazzards can be so much fun...

in any case, I have this `error`:

I do not have any too altering mods, the usual stuff (no EL).
