lucky i have a save from moments before i watched that clip - i'm off to test if its true or not.

if not i'm gonna transport a crystal factory from argon prime to kingdoms end - the ai crystal factories there just aint reliable enouph to keep my ssp going you wont belive how often i'm running outta resources there.

p.s. whats with the boron having no crystal factories froom the shipyard.

They do have crystal fabs for sale, in some of their other shipyards. Not all factories a race sells are available at all of their shipyards. A reason to explore. :)

Haven't read all the posts but here's a useful tip. Check the bulletin board when you dock - before buying or selling. Often there is a mission like "we need x cargo and offer best prices and big reward" which can really ramp up the value of the good in your hold.

Meatsteak cahoona's attract a big premium in these missions. Set up a factory in Argon space for when you come across these.

Oooh, nice...noted.
But I'll probably try and do something similar in normal difficulty.

Good tip - but I haven't a clue how to strip a ship!! Completely missing the plot with this game (not normally this slow) about the only thing I can do is exchange some items from the express to the discoverer. And then it just says products are not bought when I try and sell them.

total noob question

Post by easternblocrobotcowboy » Fri, 20. Feb 04, 05:17

great advice, I am going to start over and try it. I have been playing 2 days now and onlyhave about 50K +upgrades for my slow-arse mercury.

ok but one thing... and feel free to mock me...

I have looked through the manual as well as tried over the past 2 days and cant figure how to sell my ()*()&&*^&*(%(_ ships. Where/how do I sell my mercury?

Thanks very very much

First, you can't sell a ship if you are sitting in it. :P

To sell a ship, send it to the nearest shipyard/wharf, which for the Mercury would be Argon Prime. Then trade with the station. Voila! Instant cash :D

Good hunting and good profitsss. :)
