making pers appear without putting them in the syst resource?
I've been wondering (the bible doesn't seem to have an answer) how nova handles pers appearance in the game if they are not listed in the "pers types and probability" area of the syst resource. I know that I've seen a pers who is set to appear in any system and I don't believe that they have a value in any syst's pers section. The bible says "when ships are created, there is a 5% chance that a specific AI-person will also be created." I'm assuming "when ships are created" refers to when ai ships are randomly generated in a system.
I set pers x to appear in syst x and went to that system to see if they would appear. I repeatedly landed and took off something like 40 times and witnessed a couple of appearances of dudes' whose probability was set to 2% but no pers x. It would be much easier to modify a pers' appearance field than to input values in all the systems I'd like them to appear in.
Does anyone know if pers can be made to appear in specific systems or government systems without inputing values in the syst resource. I would assume so, but my in game testing makes me wonder.
PS does anyone know of a guide that details some of the things that the bible is a little sparse on in their descriptions or does not include? Ex rlë8 rlëD STR etc.
