X-Mercenaries is a system of networks that offer various services to both player and AI. Becoming a member of one of the six networks will grant you the possibility of setting a contract. Contracts can be of two kind : escort or patrol. Once you have decided which type you want, you will be asked for an objective, then you'll have to place a bounty.
A bounty is the main link between you and mercenaries. Mercenaries will only accept contracts if they think they are rewarding enough. Of course, the better they are, the greedier they become. Each mercenary will gain experience after completing a contract. Higher level mercenaries have better ships.
If you think that the bounty you set for a contract is not enough, you can increase it at anytime. Beware though, you must pay the bounty every hour until cancellation. You can cancel a contract whenever you want.
Many parameters are customizable via the t file. I've tried to keep this script non-cheaty, but of course it can be of great help. I've made this script to help me and the universe to fight againt the OCV of Litcube's Universe, but it's really not THAT powerful. It just helps sometimes to be escorted by two M4 ; just for the illusion of safety...
Keep in mind that by default, escort contracts are limited to 2 mercenaries, and patrol ones to 4. If you want more ships, you have to pay for more contracts (and that can represent a lot of money).
