I apologize for how long it has taken for this project to come to a reasonable head, but I have recently gotten back into writing up the events. It's gonna take a while to write up every event since this quest line involves taking on key targets of a Lanius fleet with possible support from different ships. It will also have different endings depending on what you choose to do. This quest line is also just one part of a larger concept for a Lanius-Colony warzone, similar to the Contested sectors in Captain's Edition, and people are welcome to provide ideas if they wish. I do plan to involve other player ships in different events that can be encountered, but for now I'm just focusing on the Lanius Fleet Quest.

I have some questions for those who may be privy:

Is it possible for an event to cause damage to an enemy ship, similar to how events can harm the player?

Can another ship be summoned if a previous ship has been defeated (whether by surrender or destruction)?

Can an enemy ship be prompted to run away by any event?

I would appreciate answers to those questions. Take care!

The answer to the first two question is no.

Enemies will flee when dropping to the amount of hp specified in their <escape> event (part of the ship event). If that amount is set high enough then the ship will attempt to flee right after the battle started. The <escape> event is the only thing that can make enemies flee intentional. They will also attempt to flee automatically if the player is out of fuel I think, regardless of their escape event.

A while back when I was working on a mod called the Federation Fleet, Raven made a recolored Kestrel using the same color scheme as the Nisos. They're supposed to be freighters, defensive ships, mining ships, or civilian transports. They also made some with pirate paint. They'd probably be for delivering supplies, or just be general attack ships. Just thinking these might be useful:

So, yeah. Just hoping these are useful. Good luck!
