The best trading plan

Recommended Posts

Guest jascatar

simply fly to starstation SARON (Sarien), buy some spar parts (best is TRELLIS), and sell this to starstation MAJORIS (Majora). 3 or 4 jumps only...

With a MK1 shuttle, you can make 17 Millions of money per travel if you buy/sell only TRELLIS

This is the best trade plan I've founded

You will find more details HERE.

hi hi

no, SARON is the best TRELLIS manufacturer

(and Majoris is worst)

For this reason it is not expensive

Trellis actually has a relative low price per volume ratio... I think the highest price to volume ratio is SDM-WIDOW, at least according to the trade items chart, not counting inflation.

ok, I have tested the plan more deeper. Here are the details :

at the start of your first mission :

- Before choosing the first mission, go into tradcom (time does not pass)

- unload all what you have into your shuttle (mk1 is the best). Unload drone and craft to make place on your shuttle.

unload all your analog missiles

unload all your medicines

unload all your probes

unload all your spare parts

unload all your mines

unload flight craft missiles

unload OC missiles (radix)

unload repair minerals

unload all all all

only keep :

- fuel

- 10 nutripak

- 10 vacpak

- 10 medpak

And buy all radines you can at GalcomHQ befor logging off.

That all. When your shuttle is heavy loaded, go to tactical, and send YOU to SC1. Choose the first mission. Go to navitron, and select MAJORA destination. Log Off. The AP will redirect you to the jump portal.

After HJ, lauch the shuttle where you are now in. Drive now to MAJORA with the navitron of your shuttle.

Your space craft will now drive automaticaly to MAJORA without you and YOU are now into your shuttle.

When arrived to MAJORA, dock to station MAJORIS. Sell all your cargo. Log off and drive now to SARIEN. Dock to station SARON. (best is lock the supply station near the starstation, you will save time)

Buy only HULL ARMOR UNIT.

Flight to MAJORA at starstation MAJORIS.

Sell All. Flght back to SARON and retry (3,5 minute for a simple travel).

Right before the 15 minutes of the end of the first mission, stop your trade. You now have something like 84 Millions of money. Buy all what you have selled the first time. Load 2000 units of radine, 1000 units of iridium (for cloaking) 1500 units of plutonium (for your shield) and so on ...

You must make a second travel to buy VAGRANT missiles and medpak, 200 radiation contol units, nutripak, vacpak, and so on ....

At the end of your first mission (diplomat don't need to be escorted) you must have something like 76 Million of money after fillhaving filled the space craft

If you continue at the second mission (diplomat don't need to be escorted too), you will have 240 Million of money if all goes well

Always load your cargo in this order :

- First buy Hull repair units

- Secondly buy Reactor repair kit if you have space

- Finaly buy TRELLIS

That's the way to become rich in your firsts missions (useless of lauching mining drone, it is for the poor that )

I dunno... Isn't Earth / Sol to Pluto or Jupiter / Sol much faster, and still 30% inflation?

I did a couple runs and got solid 30% profit. I just need more capital to fill up the cargo bay. Carrying only 3000 units of Radine helps a lot. I can probably carry only 500 as the trip takes only like 100 units each way any way.

P.S. Jascatar, fix your sig to include your system profile information!

He can't, until he registers the game and gets a link. Since he only just got a CDKEY, he'll probably get around to it. In case you missed all the hilarity, check this thread.

Sarien / Majora = 40% inflation pop and -10% less at SARIEN where you buy this spare parts => 50% income cowboy.gif

Nice plan! I'm rich!!

I found trading armor repair units to start with was a little better, and made more profit on a run than I could on the Hull repair units, as they are a little cheaper and so you can buy more, but still make about 15,000 profit an item. Once you have a few million behind you, get the Hull repair units, as you can then make more profit on them. Although they cost 225,000, you make about 105,000 profit an item, so a full load in a shuttle will make you 35 million on one run.

I bought the best upgrades I could get, then while the crew was busy upgrading the CC, I ran off to the shuttle bay, and did a few runs. By the time they'd finished I was 150 million better off

If you follow this plan on the first 2 missions, you will be 350 Million rich. Tested and approved

You could always sprout devil horns and try these.

Nuke a TER/INS base on earth and hide under GALCOM and as the angry ships come to kill you Galcom destrays them and your shuttle picks up the cargo pods.

Pull up your pants and go around killing transports and having saide Shuttle pick up the cargo.

Nuke triding between Galcom and Lyrius

MINE FOR MINERALS HA HA HA HA HA HA RAIDING IS A MANS SPORT KILL KILL KILL I'm sure your concience shuts up after the third person just throw some HATEBREED on the CD player and let the music take you away

HA HA STUPID TRANSPORT PEOPLE

Some people need to remember Im a Raider/Pirate its in my job description to piss off good guys and kill the Inoccent with extreme prejudice. Dont judge me for what I do judge me for the (enter word here) that I am. I am used to being chased by Do-Goodies. So thats why I say bring it on you never know what jump I might decide to turn around and start firing on you as you end your jump in front of me.

BTW EVALITY IS A STATE OF MIND NOT A MENTAL DISORDER (but it certainly helps). Also I have the MP Patch and It works WOO HOO!

Would this be the space equivalent of the manoeuvre called "Crazy Ivan" ?

Which sorta brings up another question...

At what point do you consider that you have "enough" money?

200 mil?

100 mil?

50 mil?

25 mil?
