The clone / capsule concept is new to me. I’m guessing it’s needed for the game mechanics of it all, allowing the pilot to cut bait and run / jump back to safety or the base station to get another ship. This way the pilot character basically lives on without being floated once his ship is lost.
But if the attack is a total loss and the pilot is floated/dies the his attributes are waiting in a new clone back at base. To me this process seems like typical re-spawning. But when you assume your new clone do you get all your attributes and SP back? Are the clones always updating with your character’s latest training levels and SP?
