This OXP places semi-random stealth ships in deep space and sun-skimmers near the sun


This is a beta version. It requires balancing of variables, refactoring and code optimization.


Government systems (corporate/high TL) employ pilots to solve their local problems.

The government cooperated with the organization (new or Aquatics) to use the new ship models. They use a new technology to conceal the ships, so they are almost invisible and do not leave the tails.

These ships are not the police and not the military. They can be hunters, pirates and murderers.

They can help you ... or they may wreck your missions.

This OXP introduces wild stealth raiders in corporate systems (stealth raiders may take incursions into systems in 7 LY range from stealth system also). Stealth ships specifications are slightly rebalanced. Probability of incursions depends on local system government: more stable systems are safer.

If a novice player does not attack them, there should be no problems for the player. They will appear only as sun skimmers.

Little effect on new players. Jolly tough for the more experienced.
