Trade Mk3 problem
So, I started attempting the Dead is Dead run and died multiple times before I got to this run where I feel I'm doing decent enough to start sector traders. Only problem is that the Trade Mk3 is not available where I previously bought it in my previous runs. Is this normal?

Edit: Just checked another Teladi Equipment dock, that one doesn't have it either.

Yes, it's definitely missing. Didn't see anything in the update changelog either.

You can buy it at the Terracorp HQ. Why its not in any Telady EDock I trully cant remember but strikes me as odd.

After some digging and some insight from X2-Illuminatus, it seems the MK3 SW is added to 4 (?) EDocks randomly after saving and reloading.

Seems like an odd decision to randomize the Trade Mk3 software locations.

Well I cant tell why it is the way it is and frankly I cant recall if that was always the case this way. But here we are and I dont think tjis will change now.

I didn't know that, save/reload worked. MK3 software now shows up at some teladi edocks that didn't have it previously.

Why do Traders ? Just buy a ship set it up to MINE niv ore, Place Adv sat at the niv ore and when its full sell it, buy 4 ships and repeat, in 7 game days you will have over 1 billion credits lol

Because that feels more like cheating than being legit.

I will say once you do it once and got it set up you will NEVER be able to play the normal way again sadly, you will find it to slow.

And that's exactly why i will stick to Traders. The Mine Niv way nets a lot of money, yes, but it's neither fun nor interesting.

I agreed Eruyaean =], They still to broken tho. But I wish I could undo learning it, cus now all I do is get a mining fleet then BOOM I have everything.

BOOM, you have operating capital, not even close to everything...Learn some other ways to make money, or rep, or econ rank, take my word for it, there's a lot more to this game tha niv mining (which I don't do btw).

I know there is =], just if you have the money from Niv mining you can set up that fleet much much faster =]
