    So guys, today I was traveling in exploration sites(Reforged Eden), and encountered a very weird CV. It had Admin Core lol The name of the ship is [zrx] Science Recon.
    My first thoughts were "Are you freaking kidding?". But then I just decided to check it up. Actually the ship had no too much weapons, and I realised that turrets are actually taking damage. So I destroyed all turrets of that ships, and switched to thrusters. After a 10-20 seconds it was clear that I am doing zero damage, then I switched to generators, the whole hull was not taking damage, so i was just wasting my precious ammo with every second.
    Then I decided to stop it somehow, and... it worked! I switched off turrets, flew a little forward and just stopped on its path. The ship just rammed me in the side, and stopped. It tried hard to change direction but it seems it just stuck lol When I was flying around the ship trying to find an entry point, it just turned off thrustes, and I am really curious why, but whatever. Finally I found two Blast Doors, but they are not taking damage whatever weapon I use. There are no swtiches or detectors anywhere. So now I am stuck too, what should I do with this anomaly? I am out of ideas tbh.

    Now that is one strange ship. To me it looks like you're supposed to destroy the damaged shield generator and use it as a point of entry but as the blocks aren't damaged it is not possible. Also technically the thrusters shouldn't deactivate (and they're not damaged either) thus you shouldn't be able to enter anyway i think?

    If you're still stuck open the console and type in di. In the little window you can see the ID of the ship. Use destroy XXX to get rid of the ship.

    I cleared the pass. But the ship isnt going anywhere. it definitely turned off thrusters. I have never seen such behavior. And I entered the ship in god mode, and looted it ;) Not too much stuff, but I had to take something in place of wasted ammo. I also found out that I actually did some damage to the core somehow, most likely by lag shot. I checked it and yes, admin cores are now destructible.
    In the end I just left it drifting there. But tbh its place is weird in scenario. It feels like unfinished or added by mistake.
    Who is Fractalite btw? The creator?

    No, the admin core is pre-damaged by design in this ship. If an admin core has full hp it cannot be destroyed by normal players with any means. If you take away a single hp then it can be exploded.

    And yes, i think Fractalite is the creator.

    I get the impression that this ship is going to be used somehow as a quest point at some time in the future. I found one as well, defanged it, and then wondered why I couldnt damage it. I assumed it was going to be used for something that hasnt been implemented yet and moved on my merry way.

    It is used as a quest POI, but it exists as a base, on it's own, in it's own system. It makes no sense.

    So...par for the course?

    It is frustrating loving a game that has so many irritating "features".

    I think it's a bug, thats why i reported it after encountering one in vanilla too.

    Well yes the POI version is a base but there is a file in the prefabs CV_AbyssalSmallScience
    According to prefabinfo its of type CV and has NPCCoreAdmin.

    My best guess is someone forgot to replace the core with the non admin version.
