Starliner Hauler

Post by 3D_Master » Sun, 4. Jan 09, 04:32

I was flying through loomanckstrats, when I saw this odd ship sitting 25KM or so below the north gate, it had 69% hull, but fully charged shields (2x200kj).
No guns etc, and no equipment.
However it had 15,000 or so Jewels in the cargo hold.
Whenever Betty gives info about this ship she gives me a load about passenger liners, and the rich going on cruises.
No pilot either, so now it's mine :)

The ship model is actually an Argon Mammoth.

Anyone else encountered this ship, or anything like it?

I have a few scripts, but nothing that adds ships to my game, just things like Medusa, and marine repairs.

My start was Poisoned Paranid, and I was on my way to pay the cash.

Yeah, I think I saw one of those, not sure it was a mammoth. I've also noticed a couple of hospital TLs.

Do you have that script that makes NPC on NPC bailing possible? maybe that's why its just sitting there.

Not unless the pilot has winzip installed on his onboard computer.
I downloaded the script, but it's sitting in it's zip file in a storage directory, not yet installed.
I wanted to finish getting the 25 mil, and get my Hyp, before installing anything like that.

I've seen hospital ships, and casinos all over the universe, but never this one before.

Now the question is, do I keep it, 11.7 mil if I sell, but after the cap the hull needs a lot of fixing, and at the end of the day, it's only a Mammoth.

And what am I supposed to do with 17,000 jewels....

I say keep it. Free TL is a free TL.

Funny, I've just sent it to get fitted out :) I'll repair the hull fully, when I have more money, right now I'm looking into outfitting my Hyp, so want a few quid in the bank for that.

still... an abandoned TL is very very strange...

Hi 3D_Master,

Just wondering if you have my Salvage Network script installed?

The reason I ask is that the script creates 8 free ships at game start, one of which is a TL.

Furthermore, the ships have a random (fairly useless) cargo included, which can include Jewels.

If you do have my script installed, this was probably the free TL. :)

As far as I know no other scripts could add that particular ship (especially with the cargo) and it is not used in the game by any race.
