Code variations between these versions are shown below.

.SHIP_THARGONName: SHIP_THARGON Type: Variable Category: Drawing ships Summary: Ship blueprint for a Thargon Deep dive: Ship blueprints

The ship blueprint for the Thargon reuses the edges data from the cargo canister, so the edges data offset is negative.

In the enhanced versions, the Thargon ship blueprint contains the information in the top nibble of byte #0 that scooping Thargons gives us alien items.

EQUW 40 * 40 \ Targetable area = 40 * 40 EQUB LO(SHIP_CANISTER_EDGES - SHIP_THARGON) \ Edges from canister EQUB LO(SHIP_THARGON_FACES - SHIP_THARGON) \ Faces data offset (low)

The advanced versions of Elite have an extra edge count for the ship colour; Thargons are shown in "white" (cyan/red stripes).
