Question about editor

Hello everyone! My first post here, and I'm not posting to ask for the editor, just wondering if this is the appropriate place to ask questions about it. If not, would someone be so kind as to direct me to the proper location?

If this IS the appropriate place to ask, I was wondering what field I have to change in the ship resources to make it possible to be captured? I would like to have a Krypt pod as an escort.

Thanks in advance for your reply!

Your issue with the Krypt pods is that they have their crew fields set to 0. Any ship with no crew can't be boarded or capture any other ships

Uh, he means they can't be boarded or captured by any other ships. And yes, this is the proper forum section to ask questions about editing EVN in general. If you specifically have a question about the editor for Macs named Mission Computer, then it would be best to post in the Mission Computer thread. Otherwise, creating a new topic is generally OK.

Hey, if you know how to capture ships without boarding them, please tell me.

You can assign escorts with missions (effectively capturing them until the mission is lost/reset/aborted), or you can hire them at the bar. Not really "capturing" but still, they become your escort either way.

Plus I'm fairly certain a ship with no crew can still capture ships with crew. Obviously the odds would be against it, but I believe it can be done.

Nova Bible said:

Number of crew members. Ships with 0 crew can't be boarded,
nor can they capture any other ships.

Haven't tested this, but the Nova Bible says you can't capture ships if you don't have a crew. Can anyone in the Vell-os storyline confirm?

You can capture them to use as your escort, but you cannot capture them to replace your current ship. Or at least that is how it worked last I checked.
