Post by smashmouth » Wed, 30. Aug 06, 01:31

after just reading a post wherein the whipping of slaves while farming maja snails was mentioned ,it got me thinkin.can u keep slaves.alot of slaves?unfortunately im a complete murderer when it comes to combat and never seem to have anyone bail.the one time someone, did i shot him with a missile.if i had picked him up, would he have died in my cargo bay?ive seen the life support upgrade in some pirate stations,is this needed for storing people?my hope is that i can keep all the prisoners in a big ship.should i ever manage to capture said prisoners.let them rot.or maybe send them into the atmosphere in split fire.any suggestions welcome on this one.

Yes, you need the life support upgrade for you ship. Just open your cargo and pick him up like any other piece of cargo. You can sell him at pirate bases for 1-3k, don't remember.

Wow...let everyone know how you really feel...Yes, you can keep slaves but
you do need the life support system...You can also sell them if you feel kind enough...Guess I'm glad I'm not flying through your space...Good luck and as always good hunting...

You need a life support upgrade to carry slaves in your cargo hold.

Slaves (pilots who bail from their ships and are picked up by you in the fashion that all other cargo is) can be sold to pirate stations for credits.

Beyond that, slaves serve no purpose in the X Universe and will incur the retribution of local customs agents should they scan your hold and find any slaves in it.

I always wished I could pick up the pilots and release them at the next station.

But then, thats just kind-hearted-little-old-me. :)

If you want some fun, grab the Heavy Assault Tech script, and capture a casino ship. Cycrow made a piracy command that turns passengers into slaves (seems pretty logical, after all, you just took over their ship and they're now hostages). Sold an Orca with 40000 slaves onboard for just shy of 65M.

But that's a different discussion all together. :)
