Ever since Don Marani helped Julian Brennan to sabotage the Paranid Nividium experiments a few jazuras ago (X3:Reunion plot line), his once thriving smuggling business has gone down the drain.
The other Pirate factions (most importantly the Yaki) don't trust him anymore and are mad at him for betraying them; and the Paranid hate his guts for the role The Don played in stopping their Supergate experiments, too.
The Paranid even sent an expedition fleet to kill or at least capture Don Marani; they did not succeed but their ongoing attacks finally forced him out of Farnham's Legend.
Now The Don is running - continuously relocating his shipyard to various Pirate sectors trying to hide from the Paranid's revenge.
While on the run The Don stumbled upon an old abandoned Pirate transport ship that had blueprints for almost all known Pirate ships and for some very secret factories in its cargo hold.
Finally a great chance to get back into the big business!
And Don Marani started building and selling those ships and factories at his shipyard...
- This plugin adds Don Marani's Marauder shipyard to a random Pirate sector.
- The shipyard will sell all Pirate ships and several otherwise not available factories.
- The stock of the shipyard is linked to the player's notoriety - you will need to have a high relationship with at least one of the 6 main races to get it to stock higher value merchandise.
And if your ranking is high enough The Marauder will even start selling the Pirate M1/M2/M7 capital ships!
- Available factories include:
Everything producing illegal wares, Nividium Mine, Disruptor Missile Factory, Spacefly Farm, Plasma Burst Generator Forge, Incendiary Bomb Launcher Forge, Plasma Beam Cannon Forge, Phased Array Laser Cannon Forge and even a top secret Boarding Pod Factory.
- The Marauder Mechanic - he will over tune your ships. For a price, of course.
