OK, i posted this topic and got a good answer but i was looking through th data files and i was wondering...
What i want to do is make it possible to capture and fly/have as escort their special ships with all the same features. The answer i got was abit beyond me so i was wondering if all i have to do is
eg. Hannah Chicks lightning
Create a new ship ID duplicated from the lightning and change all the settings so it is has the same features as the pers ship. Then take the ID from the new ship created and put it in hannah chicks pers file.
