another quick question ( probably been asked before a million times )
is going through the whole story really necessary? do the khaak attack any way if I don't go beyond mission 2? I've no real interest in the story :)
Yes they will eventually attack regardless of what you do.

IIRC there's two triggers. One is story based and one is money based.

However I'm not sure how the money one works.

Is it when you've got a net worth of X amount, or when you're carrying around x amount?
People, LEARN:

Lose: To be unsuccessful in retaining possession of; for example: He's always losing his money.
Loose: Not fastened or restrained; for example: Loose papers

The plot is totally ignorable. The Khaak will come anyway, and even if you do the plot, they don't go away. Ah, well, you needed a challenge anyway, right? :P

It must be the net worth, cuz I think I was only carrying 20 or 30k credits when the Khaak attacked...

mm.. ok, while it would be funky to have craploads of cash that early on.. eh, I'd feel guilty about stripping a ship that is supposed to be owned by someone else. Sure, I know they won't come after me complaining about how I ruined their ship.. but.. eh, I feel like I'd be cheating.

Not that I'm knocking anyone else doing it. I just want to do things the hard way. Hehe.

No, I'm NOT playing on X-treme :P all the voice overs say the ship I'm in starts with guns and basic upgrades no matter what level I start at so I might as well start with 'em!

Hehe.

It's not cheating at all. Your character is a reforming pirate, and it would be logical for him to take whatever he can. The devs compensated for this by making your free Mercury a pile of scrap. If you take the equipment from the express, your new Mercury comes with a whole 5% hull value and a top speed of 15m/s and worth about 2300cr Not even worth repairing :P

Heh, you won't need these tips next time around, you'll be a veteran by then :D Probably have thought up lots of even better ways by then. Last game I started on Xtreme with a bare-bones disco. Built up my initial wealth by collecting 'secret cargo container' from all over. Found enough to fully equip a mining ship and went mining. So many options, so little time :D

The Khakki :lol: came twice for me. Once after I completed the trigger missions, and once after I bought and place my 2nd factory. I got the message for Bandana Boy and watched the video. However, it wasn't until the 2nd time I got the message that I actually watched the video feed and the factories in president's end actually blew up. Try it people and let me know if the same happens for you.

I did it a second time just to see. The trigger is the video feed.
