Xenophobe Fleet just spawns a planet with a Defender whose orders are to patrol
(normally, stations with <ships> order them to either guard or patrol. Setting them to wander instead results in the behavior we see with Xeno defenders/worldships, as well as with Ventari destroyers). The worldship encounter does the same thing, but with a station whose starting hitpoints are set to zero that spawns a worldship. The long string of events in the Xeno section is for the Ark encounter, which basically just says to break off a random ~50% of the defenders(based on a random number generated for each of them upon their creation, obtained via objGetDestiny).

Any chance of an update which uses the new mission code, please? I'm really struggling with it and could use another simple example.
Stupid code. Do what I want, not what I typed in!
