I WANT PICTURES OF SENSOR GHOSTS
« on: December 14, 2021, 06:27:56 PM »

YOU HEARD ME RIGHT! YOU KNOW WHAT'S UP!

I WANT PICTURES OF THOSE TROLLY ASS THINGS EVANDING AND DISSAPERING EVERYWERE THEY GO! NO QUESTIONS!

THEY DISABLE MY FIELD DRIVES EVERYTIME IM GOING TO A PIRATE BASE TO BLOW THOSE SORRY ASSES UP! THEY DISSOLVE OUT OF THIN AIR EVERYTIME I USE EMERGENCY FUEL TO GET ONE NEAR ME AND I KNOW THOSE SONS OF GUNS CREATE SLIPSTREAMS JUST BECAUSE THEY CAN!

I DON'T CARE HOW MUCH LUDD CONDEMNED TECH YOU NEED TO USE TO GET THEM

I. WANT. PICTURES. OF. SENSOR GHOSTS!

A helpful tip, I've found that using interdiction pulse makes the annoying ones that disrupt your drive field go away.

Damnit Parker! Memes aside, do they appear more often the further away from core you are, or is that just a feeling of mine?

Well i've seen the only the ones that does disable your field drive are away like 15ish years away from core worlds, Slipstream makers (or whatever name they have) can end on core worlds but cannot start or go through them, the ones that follow you around can appear on core worlds and the little flies only appear away from core worlds also

So yes

I actually managed to get close enough to one of them that was zipping around my fleet at high speed, as soon as it was "revealed" it turned into a derelict Dram and slowed to a stop. I was able to salvage it as normal and got typical resources. It was very confusing. I'm running multiple Odysseys in my fleet with pretty high sensor range, not sure that played a part in it or if this was a rare scripted ghost event, only happened once so far.
