Today we are looking at a mod, or rather three different versions of the same mod, called "Co-pilots".
Here is a description straight from the author:
It can get lonely in the vast expanses of space. Here at Voidspace Recruiting, we offer a well trained team of professional co-pilots for you to take on your journeys through the star-systems of the Far Colonies!
The mod is compatible with the latest version of the game, so if you think it's somethind you'd enjoy - just head over to our forums and grab it!
