I started my current game in v.1.4, ATM I'm blue with 95% of pirates, Duke's HQ and his fleet is also friendly and I'm flying a Hyperion. Still no missions. Tried building/crushing to the max my Paranid rank too but it didn't help. Tried flying IS with a Pegasus and a Zeus, still no mission.
The Hyperion is not a fighter, you need to fly a Paranid fighter (M5, M4, M3). And yes, I started Duke's missions

I was under the impression that the Pegasus is a fighter, IIRC it's an M5.

Very funny Deadbeat. I missed the last line, sorry.

Anyways, it's not clear if you entered the sector in the Pegasus or you transfered to it IS. I think you have to actually enter the sector flying a fighter

OK, it looks like you have to fly a BASIC version of a fighter. The Pegasus was a Raider variant and didn't work. I tried then a Medusa and I got the mission.

The code just checks for 'fighter', so any Paranid M5/M4/M3 (or + variant) should work.

Bear in mind that there's a delay before missions are offered.

Code: Select all

<cue name="L2M46 Initial Offer" delay="300s">
  <condition>
    <check_all>
      <check_age value="{player.age}" min="{value@L2M46.time}s"/>
      <object_sector exact="0">
        <sector sector="L2M46.HQSector"/>
      </object_sector>
      <match_object maker="paranid" class="fighter"/>
      <check_value value="{value@L2M46.DoMissions}" exact="0"/>
      <!-->
        <check_value value="{player.fightrank}" min="3333"/>
      -->
    </check_all>
  </condition>
(note that the fight rank check is commented out)

I have already got this ship from the Strong Arm Plot. I have to say, I was a Nova freak for a long time but this ship is amazing.Its quick and agile, has strong shields and 8 HETP slots and is compatable with nearly every missile Only drawback is that the cargo bay is on the small side but its not really that bad.

Man this grind is terrible.

Doing OTAS currently and had a Very Hard Patrol.

Took 2 hours to finish the stupid patrol (since 2.0 missions have been getting super long :( ) and I only got 5% increase in relations.

I cannot confirm. I got my first mission on Perseus Raider.

I'm kind of in the same boat.

The latest mission they gave me, they want 25 Firestorm torpedoes.

Searching the galaxy, I've found..umm..7 so far, I believe. Every station is sold out, save maybe 2-4 if I'm lucky.

Eh, I have built a firestorm factory for those missions. The last 3 missions for Atreus, PTNI and Johnferco want Disruptors instead. :x

I had something similar from Plutarch - deliver 25 disruptor missiles. If you cancel the current mission they get back to you with a different one!

yes this is how i got the adv mamba fairly fast. just cancel those missile missions and wait a bit, then u get an assassination or taxi, etc that is faster to do. this way you will progress MUCH faster even taking into account the small decrease in rep during cancelation.

Yeh tis fun but tiring, i used to take on 2 at the same time so i would get double money Khaak vs Xenon the ulttimate battle (FYI khaak clusters= xenon fighter instadeath!) and khaak destoryers seem arguably less menacing (powerful) than in reunio
