Tested private ships with guns in other empires domains.
It is based on firepower. I made a freighter ship that could barely move with a gun and went to the editor and dropped it off into another empires land.
Empire was not bothered.
I dropped another few, and eventually it got bothered.
It seems to be based on how much firepower you have in their system before they send you warnings about your military presence (and perhaps how much they like you).
PD weapons do not seem to count.
Anyone verify this or want to add?

It takes the game a moment or two to react when ships magically appear.

I thought PD counted, but I haven't played in a loooong time.

Yeh I left them for a while when I was testing.

PD didnt seem to. I had 4 civvy ships with 10 pd weapons each and left them for a few minutes. Nothing happened. I gave them to the other Empire then made 4 appear with phasers, no pd. In a couple of minutes I got the message saying they were annoyed.

I might test again to verify, but right now, I just want to play it lol.

Thank you for your testing. In the next version of my mod I am going to make it so that only military ships will count toward triggering the warning. In vanilla DWU the game only counts ships with more than one weapon so civilian ships were excluded (as were military ships with only a single weapon).

(I'm also working on the explorer thing you mentioned).
