There is a bug in the guide.
The Paranid Demeter go to 175m/s and is the only TS capable of carring the Mining laser on the front. In my opinion is the best ship to blow asteroids.
-NOT all Paranid Space Jewelly buy nividium....
ADD: Whatch is you put 1MW shields on your ships... The are unknows sectors which mine fields invisible to sensors. The 1st Unknow sector to the east of wasteland is an exsample.
Now What I do?
I buy a Mammoth, the big cargo space is great, just the nesesary hagar, and bonus, you can use it too for building, so this TL can serve as a Multi Task.
-1 Argon Mercury, Energy Resuply
-2 Paranid Demeter, 1 for the Player Astoroid Miner, the Other for a fast ship to sell the ORE to the station when you are traveling trogh sectors to sell.
-1 Split Caiman to sell Silicon on sectors.
-7 Boron Dolphin, to recollect wares.
-1 free hangar space for the player can go and come to the TL in your ship.
I tested this is so great, faster mining and recollect. The Fast TS also ensure you a faster go and back to the factory to sell.
About the special TS as Sellers...
Well, The Paranid Demeter is fast and just what is needed to sel ORE, a station which 0 ore can byu 8XX ores at time. a fully upgraded Demeter can carry abouy 830 Ores at time... just what is needed to sell all posible whiout drop price.
The Split Caiman can carry 300 Silicon Wafers at time, an station empy can only buy 208, so is perfect, also you can use the free space tio carry nvidium.
Mercury as a buyer because, is rasonable fast and fully upgrated cargo bay, can carry about 1700 e-cells to the TL.
The Mercury and the free 2 Seller ships can act as a emergency ware recollector is you TL and all TS is runding out is freigh space. (this is going to happen).
This will cost you a lot.... but I ensure you, on the four rund, you will start to gain profit.
This is for me the best conbination of ships for everything. I have the Mercury, bbecause I like to have all race TS
excepting the Vulture, is too dawm slow for that max cargo bay. A Dolphin is a lot better and have more cargo xD. Well you can change the Mercury for a Caiman if you like.
