Help please.

Passengers on a TP...
I am referring to the Hermes Hauler.

6 units per passenger.
How many passengers can I carry in total?


I know I can have up to 10 Marines.
Does this influence how many other passengers I can carry?

Any tips for "taxi missions" welcome.

Playing TC 2.6

What's your max cargo?

As for taxi missions, make sure you have a JD. It'll make things a lot easier. Oh and the Turbo Booster. (I haven't used it myself but it sounds like a good thing to have)

And of course, max rudder, engine and cargo.

EDIT: Forgot about the Docking Computer.

Not too good at math? Wink Hermes Hauler has a cargo capacity of 1150. Divide 1150 by 6 and that's how many passengers it can carry. And marines use 8 units of cargo each, so 10 would use how much?

In TC, all passengers, including marines, use up cargo space, sharing it with guns, shields, missiles and other cargo.

6 / remaining cargoroom = amount of passengers allowed.

unless you got a JD, fuel and D(ocking)C(omputer), dont bother with said missions.(terran sectors you just need a DC, they give you enough time).

if it did, it would just be like the marine tab as it would show a maximum allowed.

do the personnel missions over single person ones, pays more and you can use any ship capable of carrying M cargo(and hold said personnel).

Hang on. That's not right. Passengers are M aren't they? That means they'll use up more than 1150 divided by 6.

Thanks.
I can do the maths,but was wondering if there was an upper limit winch was less than the cargo space total,thus forcing you not to use all space.

I was thinking that if you had a S size ware that is '1', in a ship with 3000 max spaces, you could carry 3000. But if you had a M size ware which was '1', you could only carry like 2000 or something like that. Razz

When in doubt, dock at the offering station, before accepting the mission.
