Guess what was waiting for me in the enemy sector? Yeah, another god damned bounty hunter.
So, is there a config or console option to turn them off or tone them down? I went from loving this game to getting beat with the FU stick very fast.
(Might be a necro post, but the issue is the same which tells me it has not been fixed as far as I know.)
I suggest withdrawing from the current galaxy and starting a new galaxy with your current ship, you do not lose anything in softcore mode and iirc in hardcore mode you just lose a bit of EXP.
