When do NPC crew die?

Postby Phillipus » Thu Sep 21, 2017 8:13 pm

I understand that if the main ship is destroyed the NPC crew dies too. But what if I'm in a different ship with no NPC crew deployed? What if I use a suicidewinder?

NPCs not active aren't affected and can't die.

So for as long as no NPC is onboard (active), you can blow up as often as you like or are unfortunate enough to do ;)

Rule 1: Pillage. Then burn.
Rule 2: No such thing as overkill, as long as there are reloads.
