[FIX][K0027]4.10 b Reward for gather fleet not as stated in the description. Fixed in an upcoming update

I took a mission to provide a fleet for Argon.
It requested:
1x Heavy Fighter
6x Fighter
All equipment slots have to be filled.
Expenses will be coverd generously.

I bought the following ships with High Preset
1x Quasar 4.091.606
6x Nova 14.620.506
Total: 18.712.112

The mission said as reward ship value + 50%
So I expected it should be 18.712.112 x 1.5 = 28.068.168

I received as reward: 4.937.949
Which didn't cover my expenses generously :P

Did it not also state a maximum reward?

Did it list a max?

I have station build missions that list a reward as say.... Total Value, plus like 50%, with a max of 2.8 million reward.
I aim to misbehave...
Maybe we've got 'em demoralised!

No, there was no max reward stated.
Only value of ships + 50%

Would be useful to have a screenshot and/or more details of the exact mission.

A save game with the mission active would be of help.

Ok, I got the same mission again.
It is active and the ships are just outside the mission target.
You just need to fly them in and hand them over :-)

Repeated the bug. This was an Argon mission vs. the Holy Order requesting one frigate, 2 heavy fighters, and 4 fighters. I used a Cerberus, 2 Eclipse, and 4 Nova, all bought in Argon Prime using high preset, though I lowered the Nova down to shard guns. Total cost to me was 17.2 million but the reward was 8.6 million.

I saved right after accepting the mission so I re-loaded and tried again. This time I used low presets without altering anything for the same set of ships. Total reward was 380,305. The chassis for the Cerberus was far over that cost, so it looks like these missions can't make a profit right now.

P.S. Should the mission text say something about not using foreign equipment/ships? Or maybe that's allowed and you're using this as a "think" thing?

[4.1 beta HF2] Ship Procurement Reward is underpaying?

Post by shanrak » Tue, 22. Jun 21, 03:34

No Mods:

Doing a ship procurement as part of a Teladi Trade Guild mission, and I'm given this one where the payout is less than the value of the ship itself.

It doesn't seem to be just a display error in the mission menu either, as completing the mission paid me 399k:

Image

Ship value + 50% should be paying ~750k shouldn't it?

Also, the ship markup price seems extremely high?

Image

Assuming 270 per hull and 16 per ecell (very high prices), base materials for a ship would cost around 70k. Selling the chassis at 393k is a markup of over 500%, I mean, they ARE Teladi but even this seems outrageous...

Loss of profit on fleet purchase missions

Post by InsOnix » Thu, 1. Jul 21, 15:43

When you take a quest to buy a fleet, it is indicated that the reward is "cost of the fleet + 50%".
At the end of the quest, not even half of the money spent was returned. For example: 60,000,000 credits were spent on the purchase of 3 destroyers. Reward 15,000,000 credits. Likewise with another set of ships. Where is the profit, Lebowski?

Nice, that you fixed it already. I was about to report the same problem. I spent about 150 Mio. Cr. for a terran Fleet Mission and they gave me 14 Mio. Cr., lol.

I specifically wanted to test, if you could get the most expensive fitting to maximize profits and I also did not see a maximum payout. Where would that information be? In the quest description? Is it under Rewards or hidden somewhere inside the quest text?

There's no maximum payout. Compare for instance with Build Station missions which have a ceiling.

ah, thanks. I just wasn't sure if I just missed it or if there were missions without limit. I checked one of the station missions and it is immediately visible under rewards (the only portion of the missions I carefully scan).
