I've hit a rather odd problem in my Anathema testing. I can't get the Feds to try to kill me. I've checked to make sure I don't have any ranks that would keep them from going hostile, I set a few dummy missions to put me in the negative thousands with gov't 128 so I'm showing up as Wanted Criminal in Fed systems, but they still won't gun for me. I've ruled out a class/allies/enemies problem, because they'll attack other Exile (ID 199) ships, and on top of everything I'm flying a Cutlass which uses ID 199 for both combat and AI purposes.
Also, I can get everybody else to attack me – pirate, Auroran, Polaris, etc. And on top of not attacking, Feds give friendly hail responses so I know it's not something like Max Odds which can keep someone from being attacked even if the government would otherwise be hostile. I've also controlled for "attack player in non-allied systems," and, like I said, for class/allies/enemies. There must be some flag or something that I'm forgetting about. Anyone have an idea?
