Would you care to share the solution that you found?
All of these kinds of posts would be far more valuable (invaluable) to the community if the solutions were posted. I get excited when I see a topic such as “[SCRIPTING] Tech stealing script”. WOW! How very cool is that… and then, what a disappointment it is to find that there is not new knowledge to be gleaned from reading the post.
Thank you for taking the time and making the effort to share that with the community.
I must admit that although much of your explanation is, as it currently stands (above) difficult for me at this stage of my inexperience to directly interpret (e.g. “placed on the mothership” - I am presuming that this might be contained within a custom code lua file), this kind of community troubleshooting and transparency is what I came to expect during the Relic News Forum years.
I do not want to trouble you for a more in-depth explanation, but this is the kind of Wow! post with exciting information that keeps the community alive and has kept me enthralled with Homeworld for over two decades.
