Re: Trade missions, some confusion...

Is there any bonus for delivering a cargo contract early? Not sure, didn't check that one but it will be in the same file if it is. I would imagine its the same, but never really done the cargo contracts in the game, only passenger contracts. I just steal other people's cargo instead! :twisted: Hmm...

Re: Trade missions, some confusion...

It's a shame that its not more like the Frontier Bulletin Board, where you could haggle over whether they should pay you half up front or not, and whether there would be trouble along the way! :twisted: Although this idea could easilly be turned into an OXP... :wink: And you could ask for more mone...

Re: Trade missions, some confusion...

Excuse my ignorants, but how do you know what your rep is? I don't see any rep other than my legal status. :o And a question on the time limits, does it take into account the need to fly to several systems to buy enough cargo to meet the demands of the contract?

Trade missions, some confusion...

OK, I just got enough cash to invest in a large freighter and have been looking at some of the trade missions. I noticed that you have premium (cost) and pays (profit). But a lot of these missions the premium is higher than the pay. :? Am I missing something here, it doesn't seem to be worth doing i...

Re: It's confession time - who is an Oolite addict

I was an Elite fanatic in my Amiga days! I'm hoping that Oolite will fill the hole that Elite has left me. :D

Re: New Cargos oxp...

Thanks, for the link. When loaded it says at the top of the screen in red letters that it's not compatable with version 1.75.3, which is the version I'm currently using.

New Cargos oxp...

Just tried this oxp and found it's not compatiable with latest Oolite version. :? Does anyone know if the author is aware of this and if there's going to be an update version.

Re: unwinnable battle with the navy?

Hello csab, I'm also a noobie to oolite. Some of the veterans have given you some sound advice on how to survive in the oolite universe. I would also make the suggestion on maybe having the right ship for the job? I came seriously unstuck in Random Hits oxp with a poorly equipped Cobra MKIII. : :oop...

Re: Some advice, Illegal wares...

Can I avoid getting the fines? Do lower rank govs turn a blind eye to illegal traders? I got a fine last time I docked at a rich corperate planet. :o Kind of defeats the purpose of smuggling...
