Yes, Cargo Contracts Mod seems broken in some ways when attempting to use it with Oolite v1.80 and later.

I may try to make a later version, but I still cannot figure out how to generate lowest and highest possible prices for a remote system or even the system I'm in!
Instead i get a bunch of sample prices and just pick the lowest and highest ones of the bunch.

Now using Oolite v1.88!

Lowest price for starting system, highest price at destination.
Subtract starting cost from destination amount to get "max" profit, which can be pretty pathetic because even 20 random samples may not be within 90% of the real max or min.

I have to use an arbitrary money cheat to make this work -- multiply the profit results by up to 150% for high cargo reputation, which even still may be less than theoretical max profit.
