I was testing how salvagers dealt with jettisoned cargo when I had this crash.

There were a few modified xmls. But i don't think they had anything to do with the error. I have uploaded the modified files, and my save game here.
The modifications I made were -
1. Added 18 degree swivel to all nonlauncher, nonvirtual weapons.
2. Modified the luminous drone so that it works properly to have 18 degree swivel.
3. Modified itSystemMapROM so that it always shows all stations on map and is not removed on use.
4. Added 16777216 credits as starting credits to each default playership.
5. Added one system map to each playership.
6. Added an oncreate event to all playerships so that all items are set to known and 16777216 rins are given to the player.

EDIT: I just wanted to clarify that I am not using any extensions. The game is vanilla except for the modifications I made.

Oh, and, on a side note, I also think that it's stupid for salvagers to dock when they are under fire.

This is what I was testing the salvagers for. I lay down a line of jettisoned cargo with not much in each container. The salvager would go from container to container. And when it docked, it would stop firing. So, technically, I could lay down a whole bunch of cargo containers and the salvagers would effectively not shoot me at all...
