in the single player 2 jump gates done.
I tried a mission to disrupt the core fracing facility.
to destroy the facility you need to take down 4 sites with transmitter or shield generator.
when flying around, for a unknown reason, I failed the mission. probably by getting one of the creatures accidentally being destroyed.
What I think happened is that the exhaust from nimbatus heated some of the rock and one of those overheated rocks killed one off the creatures.
I tried the mission twice but before I could find the last site to take down before I could attack the facility I lost due to a creature being killed.
none of the creatures followed me and so none were killed in a fight.
so when rocks are around Nimbatus they get heated by the exhaust and then kill a creature before you have time to end the facility.
