You can also earn credits by shooting or scooping them I usually prefer to shoot them than scoop them: not only do you get a bounty that's often bigger than any profit you'd make selling them, you also get a kill...

To be fair (galling though that is), the fakery seems to be in a news report about the ludicrous flag-planting escapade, not the actual LFPE itself. It wouldn't be the first time TV news has resorted to trickery to cook up footage that looks good -- because reality is just so tiresome, and difficult...

I noticed the pirate ships loitering about the FTZ don't release cargo when destroyed. Hmm... you're right. I had to make a special "ftzpirate" role, and clone pirates using like-ship, because just adding ships with the role "pirate" in the area tended to produce people who acted like pirates (i.e....

Only formerly clean visitors will be "marked for attention" by your script, putting a bounty of 5 Cr on their head. Not very nice to punish a innocent trader with illegal points. Better give him a warning first. I noticed that your station has his own AI script. You could replace the current IDLE s...

I've changed the link in the first post, but just in case: the revised FTZ OXP (v0.13) can be downloaded from here.

Edit: changed link to v0.13
Edit: link changed after original went bad

Re: Free Trade Zone OXP

Although it's not strictly illegal to trade there, GalCop will mark any visitors to an FTZ for attention. I noticed that's not strictly true. Only formerly clean visitors will be "marked for attention" by your script, putting a bounty of 5 Cr on their head. { conditions = ( "status_string equal STA...

I took the opportunity to visit one of these trading outposts. It's no mere trading station! It's a pirate fencing station, smuggling hub, and slaver's den of the worse kind. Vagabonds and contraband runners of all colors visit it - a good locale for a bounty hunter to lurk and make a killing , :ch...

I could be wrong but I think that, in 1.69.1 (and maybe in some other earlier ones) you can only have one type of Energy Unit -- either the cheaper but less effective Extra Energy Unit, or the monstrously expensive mission reward, the Naval Energy Unit. There is presumably a charge for swapping thes...

Speaking as someone who actually watches entire Formula 1 races -- although god knows why: it'd be much quicker just to put some coloured beads on a string and let them slide from one end to the other -- you don't want to completely rule out ships' courses intersecting. It's a dangerous game, racing...
