Whenever I am traveling on foot, imperial ships will fly by and drop down troops for me to fight. In a normal situation, this is no big deal and I will fight or flee to continue with my travels.
However this will also occur when I am doing a quest that requires me to locate and pick up items. This is an inconvenience as I cannot pick up items while in combat and I have to kill them before I can continue.
Is there a way I can "hide" and allow the ships to by pass my location?
