-109 relationship with Independent
« on: August 27, 2023, 10:38:25 PM »

Yet another independent shitpost.

0.) Nexerelin is installed.

1.) I had a mission from [REDACTED] Dissonant to drop a secret package, which I did (never do that in real life)
2.) After some time, amogus independent fleet showed up and tried to intercept mine
3.) Which I had successfully eluded from, and while travelling through more and more systems, it SHOWED UP AGAIN (so it was on my tail the whole time)
4.) Requisite 1, I have options to engage or try to disengage
5.) If I'd try to disengage, they'd pursue me and severely harass my ships + kills some transports and stuff (save-scumming, but only because...)
6.) Requisite 2, the game tries to tell me that THEY ARE NOT HOSTILE?! (Which was a foo-keen lie!)
7.) ? ? ? *insert some space battle sounds in a vacuum*
8.) Requisite 3 and 4, we have a war against independent. I've never thought it is even possible.






The purpose of this topic? Idk. Was that even intended? I've had ****ed up somewhere?

Bonus points: I've received the comission from The Star Federation for killing this independent fleet (we weren't at war before).

Pasted the link because it's genuinely such a nice mod, 10/10 would recommend this faction.

Ah yes, the dead drop. One of the possible outcomes of this mission is that patrol fleet belonging to the faction owning the market you picked up it on will chase you afterwards and demand the drop coordinates. Provided they already caught you and you don't want to ruin relationships with said faction it might be wise to just give up the coordinates, you only get a minor relationship penalty with the contact that gave you the mission.
