What would happen if say I was on my ship with somebody I hate and I set a course for the sun and say in the last minute I make him pilot and the yt-1300
goes into the sun and kills him and I am safe and unharmed and my ship is damaged.
If you sun a ship (freighter, not sure about Caps) all people and cargo will be destroyed, whether you are pilot or not. It would work if you were using a ship with an escape pod, you could jettison and fly away to safety before you sun. But, I am not sure if Escape Pods have been implemented yet. :p
Actually, if you flew into the sun with this said person onboard your YT-1300 you would die and he would fall unconscious and the ship would be a wreck and moved a square next to the sun. It would be impossible for you to set a course for the sun and "make him pilot and the yt-1300".
And if you did manage to get him to fly it into the sun and you would fall unconscious and survive you would probably die because A., no one could save you in time, or B., no one would even want to save you which B. is more likely because who wold help you to do such a thing?
If you really want to kill him get a government faction to A/E him, somehow.
Nothing is actually destroyed, last time I read the rules, only the pilot. Unless of course you'd sun a fighter, then it would all melt down. With freighter or a cap, passengers go unconscious and the ship get damaged. I am wondering more why would someone you hate be on the same ship with you that he can't control in the first place.
Capital ships and freighters sustain hull damage (30% to 50%), ionic damage (15% to 35%), and shield loss (25% to 60%) and are moved one square to the left, away from the sun (if the sun is at X-coordinates 0, then the ship is moved 1 square to the right). The pilot is killed if he is in control of the ship (piloted mode).
And while it technically says that, anyone could call a golden rule violation on that.
I always wondered what would happen if you did as the OP said, but then hopped into a docked ship/vehicle. The other person would die, but since you are techincally not on the ship that suns (the container that is) would you fall unconsious too, or still remain alive and working?
slightly related to this, if i had a droid capable of piloting my ships (say an R1 for this scenario) would i be able to set a course for a sun, board a ship docked within the first ship, and safely fly away? Not specifically to kill anyone, but merely to damage the ship.
Not even Death's embrace shall save you from me.
There are too many good guys in this galaxy, which is why you have me.
