SFB Death Rider PFs in SFC.
« on: November 08, 2020, 11:01:20 am »
I'm trying to figure a way of implementing SFB Death Rider PFs into SFC 1 using FMSE mission scripting.

For those who don't know, in SFB a Death Rider is a autonomous unmanned suicide PF (usually by the Orions) that flies a remapped course to a particular designated hex and either collides with a target (base, station, orbiting ship, etc. or stops there & self destructs after 6 game turns following launch (unless boarded and disactivated).

The explosion value is 35.

They also cannot be distracted by Wild Weasels.

Death Riders cannot take evasive action, attack hostiles with weapons, launch drones, used ECM or ECCM, tractor a target, shoot at anything other than point defence against incoming drones, drop mines, drop scatter packs, perform HETs.

I thought that it would be interesting to attempt to put them into SFC as I've already added suicide freighters to my SFC game back in 2017.

Anyone have any ideas about Death Riders??
The Klingons have many ways to fry a cat. I prefer to use an L7 Fast Battlecruiser!!
