How did you implement your Big Mac Bounty posting in the game? I can't find an example of this in your mod directory so I know you are not using varya's bounty implementation. Did you do this in your src coding? Because I wanted to look at an example without Varya's sector.

That is an IBB as part of the IBB bounty system implemented by Ship and Weapons Pack. Until SWP is updated by Dark Revenant, there won't be a way to obtain the Big Mac legitimately.

Hey I'm new at being a code monkey and am a little confused at something maybe you could help with?
I'm trying to add the Big Mac into the blueprint for the ship its based on. Feeling around in the dark here I did manage to figure out where and what I need to modify to do that in the "Ship data" file. The problem I'm having is simply with this "No_Drop" tag. I don't know what that does since just looking at code only tells me so much. Do I keep it or not?
I only need it in the blueprint. Ill be happy with just that.

Edit: Hey I just noticed something looking at the derelict ships at the top of the file... If I remove all the tags from the Mac... Will that add it to the derelict loot table??  :o I could totally live with that too!

The no drop tag just prevents the ship from being salvageable after a battle, since the IBB system has its own code for that.

Really slick designs, but I've noticed that in vanilla campaign mode the ARS don't... really seem to use their own ships very much? Other faction defectors are mostly using their own hardware, but the ARS defectors I've seen come up always have unremarkable civilian fleets. Plenty of Export/Pirate versions floating around, but I think the only legit ARS ship I've seen was a Victoria I fished out of a red giant's corona.

Ed: nevermind, just saw a mercantile convoy with a few ARS ships. guess it just took them a while to straighten everything out with their markets or something?

Spoiler
I also found the Lancer. Interesting piece of hardware, but I'm wondering how best to restore it properly given the battered state it's in...

Mostly making this post to note that I found a "fun" interaction with Industrial Evolution; several Exodus weapons are considered to be part of the weapons available to/from Independents. More importantly, this also includes these "Thrusters";

Has the saviour been implemented in any way yet?

No, and it won't for a very long time, it's just an easter egg for now.

Well thats...uh...interesting...

Not sure why the ARS is flying civilian fleets on your end, in my campaign they are using their own hardware, will look into it a little more.

Thumbing through the weapon_data.csv it's almost certainly loa_massivethrusterweapon, and is probably appearing on the Requisitions Center because it has this "he6, LR, loa_arkmidw_bp, persean, independent, pirates" string of tags/identifiers.

That's my guess, anyways.

As noted in the edit, they seem to be using their own ships now, or at least are for mercantile convoys. I just distinctly recalled seeing a couple of low-end bounties for ARS Deserters who had nothing but buffalos and other inconsequential civvie ships. I'll keep my eyes peeled for more of them and see if it's just deserters, just due to the tiny bounty value, or something else. Unfortunately I don't see many ARS fleets around in general, though I suppose I can go take a look at some of the outposts I've got locations for and see what their pickets look like.

With further investigation this seems to be an unintended consequence of how their new procedural markets are set up, I hope to put out a fix in the near-ish future, as soon as I can get a hold of my code wizard.

In testing each tier falls within the range of the vanilla battlestations, weaker than some, stronger than others.

In terms of loadout, It uses ballistic and hybrid slots, a few small missiles, It has a centralized omni-shield, and tier 2 and 3 will fill the battlespace with fast moving asteroids that deal kinetic damage to hostiles they hit.

Do the Dmod removal ticks from Field Repairs not apply to Derelict Exodus Initiative ships, and if so is this intentional or just some script magic. At first I just thought I was getting unlucky but now most of my fleet is pristine except for the few Derelict ships I'm lugging around and there hasn't been a single Dmod removed in months.

I've been told that they do not because those D-mods are built-into the variant or skin or... something. For now at least they can only be removed by an actual restoration.
