Why didn't you put a jumpdrive in the tanker? Allows for a 10-second escape from immediate trouble!

It's not that bad. I actually sent the mission six freighter to the closest family equipment dock, it was a simple Caiman, I maxed it's engines, put some software, bought Turbo Boost MK1, transfered some Mosquitos from another ship, activated Missile Defence Mosquito, ordered it to jump back to Family Zyarth, and only than I did enter it. The mission carried on, and I boosted away towards the nearest gate at a whopping speed of 333 m/s. All the time Pearle waited in my Nova Raiders cargobay, and the Nova being landed on my Boa.

This game rewards thinking. Bugs only show up because so many things can change ... all the more reason to think. It's hard to get by in a sandbox. ;)

I must admit, I thought that the first campaign would be a tutorial and introduce concepts and info rather than drop me into it.

Reminds me of elite. (God I'm old)
The only thing they needed was to make the game put up a big red: READ THE MANUAL and THE COMMUNITY FORUMS ! text as it begins.

Otherwise you might waste precious invested gametime.

Heh I restarted the missions, got back into the game after awhile - after doing the stupid mission to save some ATF undercover guy, went back to heretics end, orbital defence station - it said mission complete when I docked but, I just cant find mark jackson anymore, he's not on the comms list in the station, I have no missions, I cant find him lmao so ... dont really know what to do. I saved in prep to do the mission, so I cant return to an earlier save before this mission; thus I have no idea what to do.

You simply need to wait a while. Eventually, you'll get a call, but it can take a while. Meanwhile, go about whatever other business interests you. They'll undoubtedly interrupt you right in the middle of you doing something important/dangerous/profitable. :mrgreen:

Did you have Cargo Life Support installed? Often a mistake...

@ Badbone34: What ship were you flying when you picked up the suits? Did you ever see the characters shown in the manifest as being aboard your ship after picking them up? If it was a TP for any reason, the plots and missions sometimes don't recognise built-in CLS as opposed to bought ones.

If you have left or lost them, they could either be at a station back in M148, or more likely flying in suits along the slow route to Heretics' End.

I just started the game and picked terran defender since I read it was a good easy starting point. I did the first training mission and the first patrol mission. I picked up the Rapier, am I better off selling it and upgrading the starter ship, the opposite or keep both?

Don't rush into selling either and upgrading yet, do a couple more plot missions and see what comes...... :)

Ahhh that sounds good =) Unrelated question, I read on a couple faqs to start the terran defender campaign if you are noob like me. But everywhere I look people are starting as humble merchant then choosing a campaign later. Am I better off doing what I am doing or starting humble merchant? Also if you start terran defender am I stuck only using certain ships?

The only difference between the two is that in Humble merchant you are started over the other side of the universe map with a different starting set of ships, you can still access all the same plots and ships etc in the end...

You are doing well as you are, the Terran start is good for first timers because it kicks you of into the Terran plot straight away and as you are reailsing there are essential goodies up for grabs that will help you get your feet....
