    howdy, folks!


    When I logged onto our server this morning I found a new medical bay to spawn upon. Curiously I spawned and found an unowned but very nicely modified military minelayer sitting there - with interior, refinery and assemblers. Additonally, a very well designed small mining craft was sitting on top of it.

    The Minelayer had been dubbed Joseph Haydn II. No regular visitors of our server have ever used that painting system and I have never seen the name on the server - and no one knew who built it.

    Question to you: does anyone know who the builder might have been? Serverlogs did not indicate a recent stranger and this must have been the work of many hours. I'd like to pay my respects to the creator!

    Are you sure it's not some random exploration craft?

    It is most likely a spawned ship that is apart of the procedural generation, the thing that lets you fly really far out and infinite astroids.

    All ships spawned like that have no owner and are open for anyone, and while they normaly have the reactors and batterys powered off, Id assume the solar panel was enough to power up the medbay, and as that was not owned by anyone, everyone on the server had free access to it.

    The ship only recently spawned as someone had got close enough to where it should be at somepoint before you loged in.

    As for the mods, no idea, maybe someone added them in, or may be apart pf the sbc file, as they would only load when loaded into a server with the correct mods as none of them look structual.

    Thx for all the input! It actually had some uranium active in the reactors and I am absolutely sure that this is a modified minelayer - I have seen this pesky thing too often go boom right before I destroyed the turrets. There is no picture of the front but if you see it then you will recognize it - apart from that someone could have modified one and then put it into exploration - but because I have never ever seen an exploration ship with mods before it did not cross my mind.

    What kind of mods are you talking about?

    Uhm, the plants, the pipes, the lamps, the bed all seen in the picture.

    Yeah, this isn't an exploration spawn. Even the mining ship has a mod cockpit.

    Sorry, I'm viewing on my phone and couldn't tell much from the pictures. I have a small screen and didn't have my glasses on either.

    Yeah with all the mods present, there is no way it is a spawned ship unless someone tweaked with the files or something (not sure if that is possible atm)

    Looking at the control panel, is every block owned by Nobody? In any case, disable the antennas, hack the medbay and move it before they get back :D
