Anyone know any good trade runs?
I really don't mind tradng to make money and as for the mining, it's all good but, I get bored, especially trying to keep that drill from wandering all over the place.

Are there any decent miners ships available or, good freighters around in this game?

A good trading ship is the Anaan. Great cargo load, dual primary weapons, single secondary weapons, and a turret mount. And if the price is the same as the iOS version, less than 200,000 credits, so it's not that expensive. With the right equipment, it can last you a long time until you can afford an ultimate ship.

The Cormorant is the ship in vanilla GOF2 with the highest cargo space (350 tons vs. the Anaan's 240), but has only a single secondary weapons slot and a turret for defense. So you have to choose: a true freighter (Cormorant) or a battlefreighter (Anaan).

As for trading runs, a good early one is getting all the implants from Aquilla that you could buy/fit, and sell them at Suheo.

Hey, thanks a lot. I got 25t max with the Ol' Betty ship so, it'll take me a while to get there. lol

Still having a hard time with key commands, seems a lot of what's listed in the menu, do not work. Idk why? I already understand about those few that don't because of equipment/wingman but, I can't view anything when in space unless I pause the damn game. The Map is the most important.

Is there a Wiki or, something of the type for this game?

It always helps me when I need help on GOF2. Getting to the equipment section is a PITA, though.

Right now, I'm playing the iOS version on my iPod Touch 5G (with Valkyrie and Supernova expansions, of course), though I occasionally play the PC version. I am quite a bit miffed that Valkyrie or Supernova won't make it to PC (or Android, for that matter). Still, the vanilla experience is pretty deep in of itself, but I would have forked over the cash then and there had the the DLC appeared.

Oops, I made a mistake. Don't sell them to Suteo! Instead, sell them to Buntta (Buntta was the bottom-leftmost system until I unlocked Suteo, thus the confusion).

Also get yourself one of those things that compresses your cargo down, which expands total tonnage you can carry. Helps massively when doing runs into the wormholes for alien crystals :)

Hell, I have yet to figure how to get out of the system I started in. Oh well, I doubt I play this much longer. They got my money on false pretenses.

Thanks for the info.

I visited the Wiki page but, there's an awful lot of advertisement for dating and I don't think I will register on there. My reason is, I don't want a mail box full of garbage. I am not interested in meeting women from places I'll never go or, visit and online sex is not my thing. Sry. I prefer sites that don't advertise like that. However, I can stiln review it but, I'll not post any inquiries about anything there.

You don't have to register there to read the Wiki. Registering is just for editing the wiki and other stuff. Navigating through it is perfectly safe, just don't hit the ad links ; ) .

If you don't want to go to the wiki, you could try Fishlabs forums, which is still pretty active. There should be some people to help you there.

And I agree with Gypsy Horse about cargo compressors. They make any ship seem decent when it comes to cargo space. Try to get the Shrinker BT for starters, and get the plans for the Rhoda Blackhole and make it ASAP. It doesn't take much materials to make (I have 2 Rhoda Blackholes on my Veteran, and made them without a sweat from finding the materials).

Ok, thanks fo the info. This game is not that bad and I really don't care for how long any story might be. I just want somehting I can do, freely. Sort of like, Freelancer where, once the story is done, you can do wtf you want to.
My problem now is, controls. I can't figure out how to scan anything? I just failed a mission for not knowing how to scan and destroyed the their ship when defending myself. I was supposed to scan for this Dr. Dude.

Hello, my trade routes are - buying alcohol at wolf-reiser (and anywhere else that has alot) and selling it in Mido - Don't forget - buy lots of secondary weapons (if you have them ready to fire (load them) - they don't count towards your cargo) the run for those are pan and union - I normally buy and sell 300 at a time of four different types (ship is a veteran - with 6 rhoda blackholes fitted (used to make my hold 660 or 880 at a push) - my current wealth - $14,862,000 - if you can buy buskat - buy it - but only trade it in the bars - (keep saying no thanks to the traders in the bars till they ask for buskat - they will - eventually) - easiest way to make half a million - but shhhh - don't tell everyone - the price will drop ;) - I wish someone with time on their hands would make a table with prices for each item in each system (and each planet) (the game only shows the highest and lowest)

Well, thanks. If I ever get going in this game, I have all the time in the world. :))) Retired, myself. On one Freelancer server, I have over 184 billion credits. That's a lot of trading. :) That's in my bank for one ship. I have 18 (was 54 with multiple accounts there) but, my clan disbanned and in order to have our tags removed, we had to downsize our fleets. Removing tags are manually done, one at a time. They now have an added tool so they can do them in multiples but, that come after my fleet was downsized. :( Adding the tags, one ship at a time when creating a new character was not as much work, on a every now and then, basis.

Get drugs, towels and medicals from the central systems to Pan for a good profit. I made my first million from that. ;)

ok, thanks.

Organs and Vossk Organs. First appear in hundreds and cheap in Pan. Then sell them at Loma (black market) or other end of galaxy (Wolf-Reiser) I think.

Thanks again but, haven't played it in a long time. lol May try this run out though.
