I encountered Remnant ghost fleets more than once last release, but the Monitor ghost that moved like a ghost Remnant fleet before manifesting was new to me.

@ Dadada:  That ghost Monitor had a bigger blip than the usual random derelicts.  The text is not the same as ghost Remnants; but it is unusual.  I forgot what it said, but it hinted at spooky stuff, which was disappointing when the end result was yet another derelict human ship with more d-mods than usual.  I spent a story point to recover the Monitor to see if it had Automated Ship bolted on like the Sentinel guardians, but it did not.  I thought "Lame! I can buy or build a new one with less d-mods!" and reloaded the game and scrapped the ghost ship for salvage.

I'm not sure if this is a bug or intended behavior.  I went to Horus Yaribay looking for work (he's one of my five primary contacts this playthrough) and he had military bounties on offer.  I asked him for something challenging, and he gave me a Persean deserter bounty in the Zeta Kalico system.  I thought that sounded familiar, it's one of mine.  I have two size five colonies there.  Are bounties supposed to generate in inhabited systems?

It can happen, yeah. Argument to be made that perhaps it shouldn't; I'll keep that in mind!

Not sure if it's vanilla code or interference from one of the installed mods, but the variety of bar encounters at my colonies are mostly pirates for some reason. I am at -100 with them yet I keep getting missions and other stuff from them there even though none of my colonies are free ports. I rarely get any legitimate missions there like trade or military stuff from my own faction.

Also, it would be nice if we had contacts generated at all our colonies so there is some reason to regularily visit our colonies (outside maintenance and storage).

It is possible to get pirate contacts (I got one from an arms dealer), just not those from your own faction (or at least I have not been able to get one no matter how many times I reload).  I would like to have a Military contact in my faction so I do not need to waste time traveling to core worlds to pick up bounties, either for Derelicts or the special Omega one.

I know there are military bounties in my colonies' bars, but they are sporadic and unreliable.

I think Hostile ships destroyed by Mercenaries/Patrols should also reduce hostile activity, it shouldn't just be from the player engaging them directly. Perhaps a randomized reduction every month if it's abstracted away?

And failed raids should also give reductions.

Got a bug. Somehow when a paragon uses the forward shield conversion hullmod it still behaves as if it still has an omni shield. had an incident where it turned off its shields to reduce flux right in beside a fulgent and 2 reapers.

Sounds similar to the Monitor shield conversion bug I reported few pages back. (that I think Alex missed)

yeah i encounter this as well but this happens to me without an officer assigned to it. weird that ships are having some shield issues with the conversion hullmods

Where was that? I remember we had a conversation about it but I couldn't reproduce the scenario. ... aaaah, I think you mentioned something about it only happening with Shield Conversion - Front, right, right. And it just kinda fell through the cracks on my end. But that was specifically to do with the retreat order. Took a look just now - was able to reproduce and fix this! But yeah, this was exclusive to the retreat order being given to the ship.

Hmm - I'll keep an eye out! It's really hard to tell just from a description whether this is a bug or not; with AI stuff being able to observe it directly in-game is worth its weight in gold. So if you've got a situation where it happens reliably or semi-reliably, that would be super, super helpful!

When buying ships, should the open market have a bunch of D-mods, and the black market have almost no D-mods?

Yep. Thought the black market hulls could probably stand to be a bit less pristine.

Yeah, it should not be that easy for the black market to aquire prestine ships. Maybe black market could be reworked so prestine ships be sold at a premium price and be much rarer.

Btw, I figured out why ships often go sideway when under fire: they try to boost away... Problem is, many of the ships that attempt that either don't have the capability, or they don't have the charge to do it thus all they do is take more damage while turning their guns away from the enemy. At least that what I observed.

If the ship's front armour is destroyed then the AI will turn it so fresh armor is facing the enemy.

There should be like two types of black markets. The cheap one run by poor people trying to avoid taxes and a rich black market run by professional smugglers trying to make money by getting around restrictions. Probably keep it all on the same page but have two different lists of ships to pick from.
