Yeah... In FSport I am on "A failure to communicate," a hard mission made into a true nightmare if you go for the secondaries. After no less than twenty tries I actually managed to save all the escape pods (kinda tough since a stiff breeze takes them out) and after I FINALLY finished it... nothing. Yeah, nothing happened. Looked around here, and sure enough, a known, if rare, glitch.
So I really don't feel like going through that again, right after I had actually done it, I started looking for a way to 'recreate' the victory I had earned without being labelled a cheater, and the route I thought best was to make those escape pods actually take a couple hits. I found the ship template, and have an idea what I need to do, but all the data tables are wrapped up (I assume) in librabries or the .EXE, and I don't see anyway to directly modify its stats. Leastwise, not with my 'Turey' install.
So if someone could post a copy of the escape pod file used by the current FSport I can likely tweak it to do what I want, although I will certainly welcome an advice from those here with greater experience.
