TC: Race Rep from trading question

Post by AA0154 » Wed, 26. Jun 13, 17:31

Good morning everyone!

I know I get a little bit of race rep when trading. I was wondering if the particular race rep I get is based on which race owns the system I am trading in or race type that factory I sell to.

Thank you!

It's always the individual with whom you trade, in this case, it's the individual station. If a certain race trader trades with one of your stations, you get rep with that race, irregardless of what sector it's in.

Hope that helps. :)

Yes it does!

I was just wondering becuase I am runing around doing all the station build missions I can find. I have placed about a dozen new stations in Argon Prime alone but some of them are other races. Didn't know how the rep worked.

Thank you!

Ok, let me expand on your info. I want to get Terran rep to the max but I don't want to fly around without a jump drive doing missions. I have put STs in there to trade up the rep.
Since when an NPC trades with my station, could I not put a Solar plant in each section with a sale point at the bottom in order to speed up rep?

Thoughts?

It'll be very slow doing things this way, but your terran rep will increase

Trading works very well at low rep levels. But the higher it goes the longer it will take.
Does your game not have SPPs all over the place in terran space? Iirc there's usually tons of them by default, unless they get GoD'd out

There are a few. I pretty mch ignored Terran space until reently so I think the GOD stick got a few of them.

I can see it would be a VERY long grind. Big part is how big the middle sectors are and the speed of the TSs. I might pick up some Springbloosems and use them as some fsat traders in Terran.
