Heh, my Viper currently has 0 cargo space

It'll probably be at least another couple of days before I can hook up with you. Spent all afternoon making the slow journey to the centre of Imperial space.

Wanted to buy a new ship, but didn't want to leave my old one just anywhere, so flew to just outside Achenar, since I plan on doing some work for the Imperials.

Anyhoo, got myself a nice, sparkly new Cobra MKIII, added some basic multicannons and upgraded the shield generator. Kinda broke the bank and have just enough to cover the insurance, so could do with taking a couple of bounties so to fit a better FTL drive and a fuel scoop - which'll save me time in the long run.

After that, got me a nice multitasker to use for general ops while my fighter is tucked up all safe and sound.

Having gone through the above route in roughly 2.5 hours, I can confirm I made just shy of 2million credits.

My laden jump size is 21lys, and I can carry 56t in my cobra currently. I also had to skip the last three stations due to being at capacity.

I'm going to do one more run as is then grab a type 6 to do it in to ensure I get maximum profit.

I also sold my scans for a further 50k.

Current trade rank, Merchant.

Just watched that video and I'm confident with a type six the above route I mentioned will dwarf the profit of trading normal commodities.

With 100tonnes the trading of rares will be far more lucrative.

Re: Elite Dangerous

I'm in the Lave cluster now. My Cobra can only pull 12ly laden, right now, but I've got 36 tons of cargo space waiting to be filled with rare goodies.

I'll be back on Friday and will try this route properly, but doubt I'll be grinding trading in the same way you guys are - I'll dip in and out I expect.

I do fancy hitting some conflict zones this weekend if anyone fancies checking them out?

Re: Elite Dangerous

Has anyone actually managed to progress in the Naval Rank missions? I'm not within 100ly of a system that actually sells personal weapons or non-lethal weapons...

I'm in Hip 13179, which I was excited to see Noakes Dock exports Personal Weapons and was well within my 10ly jump range. So I headed right over, docked and - Personal Weapons aren't even shown on the Commodities Market screen.

Re: Elite Dangerous

For a game called "Elite: Dangerous", it doesn't sound very dangerous

"Elite Delivery Simulator 2" might have been a more apt title! :P

This is why I'm primarily doing bounty hunting. It may not bring the money in as quick, but it's a lot more fun.

Even on my way to the Lave cluster with a hold half-full of rare goods and a ship not specced for fighting, I stopped to claim a few bounties along the way.

I suppose it would probably be a bit easy if the required resources were available locally - but no, I've not taken on any of those missions.

Re: Elite Dangerous

It gives you 1, maybe 2 hours to find and return with the goods. I wasn't expecting local, but I WAS expecting a station "exporting" them to actually have them...

On another note, I regularly check out unidentified signals to see if they're criminals. Made about 30,000 from 4 of them. One was already under attack by three cops, too!

You can get non lethal weapons from one of the stations on my run, spotted them yesterday and thought the same thing that I'd been asked to get them for the naval mission...
