Having an issue where belt rats are coming after me in my missions.
I have cleared the actual npc’s that are part of the mission. I am going around collecting salvage, loot, and then work on mining the asteroids. These are all things included in the missions as part of the reward structure for completing them is my understanding.
As soon as I try mining the asteroids, the belt rats show up magically. No combat probes to scan down my dead space bubble. They don’t use the acceleration gate required to access the spot I am in. Just completely ignore the mechanics/rules of the game as I have come to understand them.
My assumption is this is a bug. That these rats are not supposed to enter mission sites. But have not gotten a response to confirm this. Has anyone else had this problem, reported it, and gotten an official response on what is intended? Do the belt rats protect all rocks in space no matter where they cry out for help from?
