[#1431][Beta 7 510851] Grand Exchange 1 Headquarter Vendor is my Ship Pilot - Prevented in a future build.

While doing the Terran Cadet game start, after being teleported to Grand Exchange 1, setting up a docking module, I was able to access two employees with the station through the information screen.

One employee was the station manager, and another appeared to be a non-titled employee with fairly good piloting skills so I made her my pilot. So the captain of LJN-910 Minotaur Raider is Liling Lang.

The issue is, when she is in the pilot's chair of the ship, she acts like a market vendor where I can buy/sell personal inventory. My assumption is that the NPC is supposed to be locked and not an accessible to the player.

As I progressed in the main story to gain access to the inner headquarters (after the escort mission), Liling Lang did not disappear from the captain role and a completely other NPC was in the role as a hanger market vendor.

So basically my pilot is a mobile vendor when I want to see certain personal goods.

To add some more information, this can be exploited into an endless cash loop at the HQ. When the vendor is a pilot, from the player inventory list, the pilot can be asked to deposit all inventory. In doing so, the items can be retrieved from the HQ safe deposit then resold back to the pilot.

Thanks for the report. Turns out it was a shady guy trader who happened to be spawned on the HQ while it was under Terran control. Will be fixed in the next build.
Come watch me on Twitch where I occasionally play several of the X games
