Signature Output Modifications
Signature Output Modification
A Repair check with a DC of 25 can be made to the engines to modify the output so that the starship looks like a ship of different size or type under long range sensors. The check takes 1 hour. The results of the Repair check is used as a Bluff check against the sensor check of the scanning starship.
A mechanism that can be used to program this modifications can be brought and installed on a starship. The mechanism is called a Signature Output Modifier and has a P_DC: of 35 Ill(+4). Programing the Modifier takes one full action and a Computer Use check. The results of the Repair check is used as a Bluff check against the sensor check of the scanning starship.
A starship that scans another starship using short range sensors is not fooled by any of this tricks.
Pilot checks must be made with a penalty of – 4 to make the starship move like the starship class and size that is trying to look like.
