    So, I haven't played in a while and as far as I can gather from the changelogs, ai controlled planetary vessels called patrol vessels (are they CVs?) seem to be a thing. It's possible to replace the ai's CVs in space, is it also possible to replace the PVs with custom CVs/SVs? If so, a small guide of sorts that explains how to add (mutliple,if possible) PVs to any planet using custom ships would be appreciated. Thanks in advance :)

    It would be a start to make Planet Vessels Solid and not a thing you can go trough with the ship. It is just.. Weird

    edit: Alright, so I managed to spawn a custom CV by placing the respective blueprint(equiped with alien core/alien turrets) into the content/prefab folder, and then replacing the name of the PV in playfield.yaml in the templates folder. I'm still having trouble to spawn multiple PVs/PV HQs however, cant seem to ever get more than one PV without the game crashing,and any additional PV HQ I add to playfield.yaml seems to overwrite the old one. So, if anyone knows what to do, then I'd still be grateful for some help :)

    edit2: Oh yeah, outside of that, I'm also not 100% sure what some values stand for, so some help on that would be great too

    PlanetVesselBase:
    Name: PlanetVesselBaseSetup
    Position3D: [ 0, 102, 0]
    BaseType: PlanetVesselBase
    KeyId: 0
    PlanetVessel:
    - Name: BlueprintName
    Mission: PlanetPatrol
    FixedMaxSpeed: 10
    RangePatrolCenter: [ -1000, 0 ]
    RangePatrolRadius: 800
    RangePatrolAltitude: 80
    RespawnDelay: 12
    InitialDelay: 48


    I have absolutely no idea what KeyId is or does
    RangePatrolRadius and RangePatrolCenter are values that i'd interpret in the exact same way: How far the PV can move from the HQ. I'm not sure what the difference between these 2 is

    Thank you so much for information about replacing the PVs :D I'm planning out a destination planet that is extremely tempting and equally dangerous.

    I'm looking forward to learning more about your experiments with it!
