Extra Rock Hermits

From Elite Wiki
Rockhermit selection.png


This mod is intended to add more variety to the types of Rock Hermits in various systems. Rock Hermits from this pack can have extra facilities built on the surface of the rock, and can even have an external landing pad in the more technologically advanced systems. If the External Docking System is installed, the player will be able to dock at the station at the external pad.

Default Rock Hermits will be replaced with ones from this pack in about 35% of cases.
