Option not even there...
I've been playing the Rebel missions for quite a while now, so I am a Felon or lower in all Confed systems. When I try to land on their planets (which are red in my radar map), they quite naturally won't let me. Before now, I have always been able to hail them and offer them a bribe, sometime they'll take it sometimes they won't. But now there is no "Offer Bribe" option, there is the "Greetings" option instead. There is no red "Hostile" in their status window, either.
My best guess as to why is because I am using the IFF Scrambler (I am using rEVx). I knew that this would make ships not hostile to me (unless I am scanned), but I didn't think it would have any effect on planets.
If this is the reason, it seems like a bug to me. Either it should let you bribe the planets, or let you land without bribing...not letting you land OR bribe doesn't seem good for gameplay.
Is my guess correct? If so, is this a bug, or an intentional thing that won't be changed?
