I want IBL's in my freshly bought Tiger (darnit!) and what I HATE about this game
I am on good terms with the Yaki... and now the pirates.... money to burn, but the catch is, there is only one forge that produces this s**t.... and it does NOT produce anything, even though I have put ore, spaceweed etc etc into it.
In fact, the one thing I HATE about this game is it's wonky economics.
Factories are not producing stuff even in well travelled/supplied sectors.
Good luck finding 1GJ shields.
Even worse, knock yourself out looking for IBL.
Heck, even HEPT's are hard to find.
The economy is out of whack, with missiles being produced, and then 2GJ shields but no 1GJ shields, no HEPTs, etc.
So even though I have all this money, there is nothing to spend it on.
And here's a kicker - when buying that Tiger, the big guns and shields were missing from the customization screen in the dang shipyard... SIgh.
Also, to transport passengers, to make a real passenger ship, you either buy a TP ship with built in passenger module... or have to go to a damn pirate base to make yours a passenger ship. Ridiculous.
