Summary0000810: Ghost ships in red alert missions
DescriptionIf in some mission your wingman dies and than red alert occures, this wingman will reappear in next mission with 0 health and not moving but alive! Red alert carry status option does not help. This bug presents since original fs2 and I'm surprised no one reported it yet. I actually thought it has fixed long ago.

Try taylor's RC7dot8 build. This should be fixed.

Negative. Bug still there. See the attached screenshot

Got some missions that I can test with? I can't seem to replicate this otherwise.

Uhhh, hmmm. Well, the problem is pretty obvious (and I have no idea why I've never seen this before) but I have absolutely no idea what :V: was thinking there.

The issue comes from red_alert_bash_wingman_status(), which will keep destroyed/departed ships rather than filter them out like it's supposed to. It actually restores the hull for these ships (but the ship model remains wrong) for some reason. The strange thing is that most of the comments totally contradict when the code is actually doing. This fix would be easy, but I'd rather run it by Goober before making a change (it's just so obvious of a problem/solution that changing it worries me ;)).

Fixed in CVS. Goober may reopen this if he doesn't like my changes though.
