Told to "pick up" hydrogen. How?

Post by spikened » Sun, 29. Dec 13, 01:21

Will someone please answer this question? I've seen several people ask but no one answers.

I accepted a mission to pick up x-units of hydrogen from a specified sector. Where am I supposed to pick up from? There is no guidance marker. Thre is no place that sells hydrogen in the sector I was directed to. The hydrogen harvesters don't/won't sell it. I was not told to collect/harvest/gather/mine/steal/buy the hydrogen, I was told to pick it up from and bring it back. Every other mission in this game that I have accepted so far in which I am told to pick something up I am directed to where I am supposed to get it. How/why is this different? Am I supposed to harvest it myself? If so why does it matter where I get it and why the misleading instructions? Is it a bug or have I missed something?

I don't think I will be able to help but for what it's worth, I never accepted one of these missions but if it is giving you a sector to "collect" it from I would assume it meant harvest it with a miner as hydrogen is a resource not a product.

That said, aslong as it gives you a destination to hand it off too then I doubt it will matter where you get it from if their is no guidance or a buy x amounts of hydrogen line. afaik you won't find anyplace to buy it though.

If there is no sell hydrogen to this station line once you have the resources loaded in a ship then I would have to say it is broken but that's what my gut tells me should happen.
Take it easy, If you can't - Take it by force.

More than likely it's a poorly written mission based on a boilerplate for items you can buy or are suppose to pick up from a specific person. If you have a hydrogen miner, try harvesting the hydrogen in that sector. Cap one if you need to :twisted:. Then see if you can complete the mission with that hydrogen.

Excellent idea yes, save your game and just cap a ship already loaded.

Great suggestion Ancient' :)

Note to self: choose missions wisely. The mission has no time limit, so I can wait 'till I can buy a harvester,... oooor buy some marines :D
Thanks y'all!
