Get intel that your target ship is landing at a spot to re-stock and refuel. Sneak aboard and hide till it is out in space then take out the whole ship or just grab your target and jump off. Having a friend with a ship pick u up would be so cool.

As we've heard nothing since (as far as I'm aware) and it wasn't featured at Citizencon it's possible Bounty Hunting V2 has joined Building Interiors in being mothballed until current projects (namely Distribution Centres and Static Server Meshing) are more ready.

There's not a lot of space left in the year for 3.22 ISC episodes. Lando indicated only a couple were in the works for after IAE and a dive into the new test channels. I'd say Structural Salvage will very likely take up one episode but there's nothing else big enough currently on the Release View to take up the second.

There was that section where they showed a takedown and handcuff of a target. But there is so much more that goes into it, that I agree it isn't ready for us. The main concern is what happens to players after they have been arrested and all the edge cases. Also I don't think server meshing has an influence on development of this loop.

sten_whik wrote:They are adding jails to all the landing zones that you take your bounties to. No idea if players will be happy in small cells doing nothing but that's what's happening.

Bounty Hunter V2 includes Virtual AI which was being developed by the Systemic Services and Tools team who were also responsible for other network features including server meshing. They began a reshuffle in August with team members and tasks getting reassigned to other teams and we don't know the whole outcome.
