Many ships have Escape pods installed in them, of course i know that is not implemented but bi *The Guide* they should be
So the question is to the admins - in the future when THESE escape pods will be implemented , will the owner of the ship be able to put some cargo into the escape pods without using it , or even *put* some NPC in the Pod?
Well personally i think it should be possible, because it is quite a realistic thing to do, to prepare like that IMHO.
Most likely it will take your character + members of your party and put them into the escape pod. If there are more people in your party than the pod can hold, then it will most likely either pick PCs > NPCs or it will randomly select people to leave behind. It could always tell you that you have too many people too and force you to reduce your party size before getting in one.
