Unknown Hull

Post by belorsch » Tue Jan 22, 2008 9:00 pm

I'm in a game with no add-ons and I can see a ship with - Hull:unknown and Warp:?
It does show the race that the ship belongs too.
Any ideas as to why this would happen?
TIA

Dosplan?
If yes, dosplan is limited to identifying 50 hulls.

No Winplan, but that is interesting. If dosplan has a limit then I suppose Winplan would.

I see "Unknown Hull" once in a while. I always thought that it was a normal random occurance.

Get closer to the ship. You'll identify it then.

I believe it does and you're most likely to hit it if you create a strong alliance (FFx as opposed to ffx) and start seeing all of your allies contacts as well as your own. Problem is that it's usually something you REALLY need to know. It's a Murphy's Law thing that the unknown hull is never a ship on the far side of your ally's homeworld, it's part of a fleet closing in on you..... :shock:

IIRC there's a bug in winplan that it might show contact #50 without proper identification

edit: contact not ship id

I had the same thing recently using Winplan. I'm pretty sure that Echoview can correctly identify the ship type and owner....

I agree. I get that from time to time. Have to look at Echoview to see what it really is.

Thanks for the help guys.
Gilgamesh - You are right. It's a ship headed my way and now that it is closer I can see what it is.
