Bounty hunting

#1
SO i've been tracking one of the bounties off the most wanted list following them to every location they have been seen killing every red ship I can find and no joy did this for an hour today.

Is there something i'm missing? do the most wanted have any map markers or different ship tags.

How good would it be to have guilds in the game like a bounty hunters guild traders guild ect?

When you enter within two sectors of bounty npc, they should be visible with special icon on starchart. But we do plan to make available more detailed "crumbs" to lead you to heroes and veterans. And regarding expanding the core usage of hero mechanics, that is planned to certaind extent. Thanks for suggesting fresh ideas Smile

Also, they appear as Trinity Free States, so if you're friendly to that faction, the bounty will be friendly til you grapple him. You'll know them by a special icon next to their ship name which is different from the bounty's name.

I'm also hoping for a rotating bounty system where after you kill a bounty, a new random bounty is generated to take their place but only at your level with the rank of ship you are capable of piloting =3. And maybe even have it so that some factions can place a bounty on you and a random bounty hunter will appear in equal strength from time to time until you either pay off the bounty (would probably appear as a permanent mission until done) or you finally get destroyed =3.

The icon I on the map I thought only appeared on Easy Difficulty, Mario, are you leading your players astray!? For that, you must change your icon to mario of mario fame!

Darn, you're right! I knew icon visibility will depend on difficulty, but honestly had no idea oliver made deployed it to live version already. I'm ashamed now :S

Well why not implement a Probedrone to find your Bounty (like in SWG for example)? Can be expensive or hard to get also.
Ahm and why it depends on difficultie to be visible on starchart ? Makes not really sense.

I've been spending some time attempting to track the bounties via the News and Bounty Board. Couple of points:

1) It would be nice if the News bulletin mentioned whereabouts the NPC was, without having to also cross-check the Bounty Board. Even better would be if I could have a way of quickly zooming to the rough location - maybe from the Bounty Board interface - it's a pain having to manually search the map. I've put in 35 hrs so far and it'll be a long time yet before I'm totally familiar with where everything is.

2) I'm not sure the "icon visible when within 2 hexes" mechanism works properly. I've been reading the News & Bounty Board, then T-gating over to the location without any luck finding them. Then I enabled easy mode, only to find that 2 NPCs were within 2 hexes, one right next door. Back to Normal and neither icon appears.

I'm on the recent GOG version if that helps.
