[B5M1] Protect Alliance-Smuggler Meeting

Here we can have in-depth discussions about which missions need to be adjusted because they are broken either by original design or by XWA models.

Has anyone else had some odd experiences with this mission? For one, your allied AI pilot seems to have a case of the derps. When throttled down down next to the rebel transport, he seems to slide to the left, as if on RCS thrusters. Giving him any orders other than "Attack that target" seems to bug him out, and lock him in position, robbing you of another ally in a mission that seems under equipped with only two rebel Z-95s, and some allied Cloakshapes making it impossible to engage the pirate group and the imperial squadron of gunboats yourself.

Also of note--the mission appears to start launching you from the Liberty's wing?!? It looks and feels like a catapult launch off the deck of a carrier--which, cool, but then you also fly RIGHT by the liberty's open hangar bay. Thought I'd point these out in case someone wanted to take a look. This is running on the newest version of XWAUP, no other modifications or ships.

That's the starting point since the original XWA vanilla release. It does seem a little silly so I might look into moving that
Chief XWAU Team annoying nitpicker.

It is? That's amazing. To quote Joker in Mass Effect 3, "Some programmer phoned that one in." Might be worth looking into the AI behavior of the z-95 wingman. Poor guy needs a flight evaluation.

I moved the Liberty. The wingman AI is already set to Jedi.
But yes if you tell him to do stuff then he makes a mess of everything. Best to leave him alone

I'm guessing the updated mission will be part of the next XWAUP update?
