I looked at the data files for a answer. I have a question for David Arthur, and some additional info for Avi Kerensky.
I got to see the Derelict Freighter so long ago I don't remember when it was. Lots of years, I think. It was a in a Confed system. Maybe it only shows up in those? I have seen it only once in all years I've played EV (I played it actively for at least 7 years, and I know I played only the original game itself for a long time, without plugins).
Is it possible to get the mission again? Yes, that sencetence was my question to David Arthur. The pers says, in the LinkSyst field, 9999.
The Override Bible says:
Which systems the person can be created in
9999-10127 Any system belonging to this specific government
Except that does not give a me a way to determine this government. So I don't know if David Arthur is right when he says it can appear anywhere.
Here is the additional info for Avi:
There is a combat rating reguired. It is 1600, which is Noteworthy. That's a rather big combat rating required, for the first EV. I looked at Destroy Alien Cruiser and T.A.G - You're It, and they don't require any ratings. Even if these are the hardest missions in the game.
The only that would be anything as hard would be the mission where you have to disable a Bulk Freighter for the Confeds to get the back the Particle Beam. Then there is the one that features a Confed Cruiser when you leave the station. The last Astrodyne Outpost mission. Do combat ratings mean anything? That is, in the first game. I thought they would measure how hard a mission is.
You're paid 1 milllion credits. Few missions pay that much.
You're required to have 20 tons of cargo space free
Then there is more things:
You will get a negative legal status (meaning the legal status reward) if you do this with the Confeds, -10.
There is 2 AuxShips (auxiliary ships). The dude for it is Confed Warships, which means you could get chased by 2 Confed Cruisers! That would be harder than any mission in the game short of the Alien Cruiser. I wonder if you would make it alive from the attack of 2 Confed Cruisers- even if you just have to avoid them.
More stuff, which I didn't understand. Does David Arthur know why?
The pers Derelict Freighter gives you 25640 credits. Except you can't board it because you get a mission. What is the point of credits then?
The pers has a ShieldMod of 150. Why have a ShieldMod for something that is disabled?
The mission has Flags $0150 and the pers has Flags $1700. Except what they mean is not mentioned in the Override Bible. Do they mean anything for the mission and pers (such as the Flags that are mentioned in the Override Bible), or do they mean nothing?
Edit- the Override Bible says about perses: When ships are created, there is a 5% chance that a specific AI-person will also be created.
So does it really be that there is no fixed percentages? How can I know the chance of the mission if it's not 5%? Can I reset the possiblity of getting the Bulk Freighter by jumping out from the system and in again?(When ships are created, there is a 5% chance that a specific AI-person will also be created)
