Mission 2 TP: Cheat?

Post by Aro » Thu, 12. Aug 04, 07:59

So, in your current game, did you strip the mission 2 tp to fund yourself?
Another question would be, would this be a 'cheat'? If people are against SETA use, why is it not common to leave the TP alone (not counting Mr. Boron..)?

I personally didn't in my last game, took longer to get going but was an interesting ride.


Mmmm, morality questions are fun.

I didn't, but then again, I didn't do the mission to begin with. I just took the disco from banadamanda and flew away. Some time later, PE fell and they wanted me in the goner base.

I don't consider it to be a cheat. It's nice to have the possibility of a jumpstart.

But shouldn't you be using spoiler tags for that one?

You bet i did. Otherwise it would take about a week to trade that amount of money in the beginning of the game. I also tried to sell the Kho women, but couldnt.

By the time I get around to returning MiTon & co I usually have enough money to do what I like with the Express. An extra 500K is not that much.
So once I returned the Express with all the software upgrades, speed & rudder tunings, a shiny new 25MW shield so it was up to 75MW, and an APSG. I even gave the thing a new coat of paint, fer goodness sakes!

I still had to apologise for the condition I returned the Express in and got a Mercury at 77%.

Since then I have stripped it to bare bones - to the extent of even removing SETA and the Boost extension off it onto another ship - I can get another 700Cr by doing that.
The 5% Mercury I get as a result gets sent to Argon Prime for "rehab" and I get on with my life.

Didn't the first time although I did head off in the TP for trading for a while before picking up Mi Ton.

Second time I stripped it bare :)

I had every intention of doing so but got too carried away flying in my fast Orinoco.

It got destroyed in the ruin of Presidents End where I left it parked to deal with the pirates so I reloaded thinking if Saya is dead might be bad later on.

This time I parked it in Terracorp HQ with all the extras I'd put on: strafe drives, the full 50mw shields etc (can't remember if I put in an extra one or not) and after a while Ban Danna calls up and says forget what you were doing and do this now. So I lost the goods, left the ship pristeen AND didn't get a Mercury either.

Stinking thieves!

In my second game I did. :p

Such is life!
