TP passengers-help please.

Post by TTD » Mon, 17. May 10, 20:37

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.
Having an Acronym Attack? See the Ego FAQ. Also now for Terran Conflict and Albion Prelude.

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. :P

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