some are patrol, ie, you fly around several points.

some are transport, ie, you buy some goods and take them somewhere. Later on you get lots of sorts of missions as well.


One idea that's been floated around the nielsbauer forums is the idea of other trading style missions where someone asks you to fetch a specific object for them, ----- but these haven't been implemented yet.

Are all missions combat missions? Hmm I guess so if you're in war but... figured there'd be others.

Hi Zac.

see my reply to Liam for some ideas.

Again though, remember I love using the sensors and going on missions. I'm sure someone with more patience for, and interest in trading, ---- -especially when the trade screen get's it's final access tweak, could have a different method of doing things.

that's one thing imho which is so great about S4, you can play the game differently depending upon your personality.

Hi,
I too am wondering about the best way to get 200K+ credits to get myself a new ship. Is there anybody with more experience in S4 who could make any suggestions here? Dark?
Thanks much,
Zack.

The other thing I have a rought time with is buying a new ship. I'm
federation, an dI'm going to assume that the next ship, which is a corvet is upwards of about 200 k credits. Seems like I'll be shooting up ships for
a long while before I can upgrade.  I like the game, but the  combat is
extremely tedious, and I have a horibly short attention span.

Hi Liam.

Trading at the moment is the most lengthy process in the game unfortunately,
it's possible, but to trade accurately takes time.

When you click on trade, you get the trade screen showing the goods and
prices on whichever planet your currently on.

X1 x10 etc refer to the units of the good to be bought or sold, and the buy,
sell, buy all or sell all will do the selected actions.

The only problem is, that screen only shows the goods for the  selected
planet. In order to see the prices for the goods on the various planets, you need to close the screen, click once on another planet in the travel screen (to highlight that planet, but not a double click otherwise you'll travel
there), then open the trade screen again.

this unfortunately makes planning trades a very slow process.

Visually, once you click on a commodity, the prices for that commodity are displayed next to the names of all the planets on the travel screen, but sinse a screen reader is focused on the trade screen you can't see them.

I've suggested to Niels that he create a minimize button for the  trade
screen so as to close the screen, but keep the selected goods prices on each
planet, but this idea's stil in the works.

I must admit though, I've always personally been much more interested in the bounty hunting and mercinary practices of the game, ---- so haven't really
looked that deeply into trading.

Hth.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.
