Strange!

Post by julyy »

Something strange happend. I arrived in G5 and saw a green medicalboat at the witchpoint. As I shoot at him it looked like he leaves three cargo pods behind.

Nothing special. But this cargo pods appeared as three Gal Cop Vipers!!! It looked like the medi-boat has droped them. There was no wormhole sign or something ...

Believe me. Its not spacesickness or something.

I take it you haven't got the 'pirate-traps' oxp installed then?

Another possibility: sometimes when a bug occurs, textures are swapped, the viper texture is a favorite one for some reason.
Could be the viper texture is pasted onto debris?

No, no, no ..

I _have- the pirate traps installed, but I always thought this are traps _of_ pirates, not _for_ pirates. Spacedementia.

If you read the readme...or the online documentation, you will find the traps are sting operations set by the cops to entrap honest traders with leaky lasers.
The traps by pirates could be the pirate-coves. Those are hermits that attack on sight and spew forth an armada of fugative spawn.
