Experimentor stealth what-if

#1 Post by defaultuser » Sat Jul 21, 2018 9:10 pm

This is a little "out there". I have had experience in the past where an Ion Storm moved over the Experimentor world. That has a natural stealth of 165, IS adds 40 for a total of 205, so the 200 of Omni-scanner can't see it. You have to wait for the storm to clear.

Now, suppose there is a Space Volcano wandering about, and it happens to be at a system where a starlane to the Experimentor system opens, either due to the player using a bore or release of monsters. Could the SV follow that lane into the system and lay on the Volcanic Ash special that also adds 40 stealth? Or does something keep it from either going in or applying the special?

If if could, then you'd have a permanent 205 stealth.

It's possible to get to 210 with a Panopticon. Had to do this once myself, had a planet I couldn't see even with 200.
