How to deliver food to DeVries?
Spoiler alert!


So I'm on the mission where I just got my freighter back and a construction ship. Now I need to deliver food. But.. how? My freighter has only energy storage. I tried building with the construction ship but when I talk to the architect the build option is always grayed out, while I do have more then enough cash on hand...

Anyone got any hints on how to solve this? thanks in advance!

in "gushing spring" there is a station selling food rations,
anyway i am not able to buy the 300pcs needed (using the construction vessel) ...

the reason may be that the ship im using doesnt have cargo lifter drones (and i dont know how or where to get them onto my construction ship)

so im stuck on this for quite a while now

What you need is a ship capable of carrying cargo type "Container" just spent an age trying to figure this out myself. im having to build a freighter because the game ate mine but i believe you can modify your energy freighter at a ship dealer. couldnt find one in albion so ask in devries.

hope this helps

Any idea how to get all of your ships together. The Taranis is broke down and can't move, the Constuction ship doesn't have any energy cells, and the original ship has it's own problems which I haven't even tried to address yet. I have ships all over, with captains, and yet I'm just stuck!!! :(

It will cost you at least 6mil to fix your Taranis... sell it remotely in Devries (ask around for a ship dealer)! If it isn't too horribly damaged you should walk away from the deal with a cool 30mil.

Your ships that say they have no energy cells will usually fly off to buy enough to make the trip to you (part of why people are confused about ships "wandering" around)... so if you wait long enough they will arrive in your sector. This could have been avoided had Ego implemented a "status" on ship info that told you what your ships are doing and why.

I've been completely unable to repair several of my ships though because of what I assume is a glitch (ship dealers don't see them or something).... just go cap some more Plutarch cap ships (silly easy, fill your ship with marines and go to town) and make a couple hundred mil selling them off so you can build more (LOL).

There are two ship dealers on each shipyard. One sells a bunch of freighters, light and heavy suls. The other sells a constructor ship, battlestar carrier (starts with an A), Taranis, and a hybrid carry-anything freighter. Make sure you are going to the correct dealer to repair the correct ship - a taranis dealer can't repair a freighter, and vice versa.

I have gone to all of them in Hot Air... some of my ships show up and can be repaired and other simply do not. It doesn't seem to matter if they are in the same sector or not. :*(

Finanally some information I can use... THANK YOU!!! I just started a new game (Free Play), but I think I'll go back and pick up from taking the Taranis; and keep my fingers crossed that the Constructor ship and the Original ship (Regalis or something) will show up. And Great Idea on Selling the Tar... Much Thanx!!!

Your ships will follow you. Sometimes they questioned to me to buy jumpcells , but they dont buy it, this is the tradebug . I also cant buy the 300 food or whatever i want to buy. We can only wait for a big update to fix this horrible bug.
RogueChristian Nov 18, 2013 @ 10:58am 
No ship dealers in my game (Okay the plutarch one who don´t talk to me).... I am broke..... and will not start again... the 300 Rations Bug and the missing TRader finished my motivation...
[SSGS] DarrikVkir Nov 18, 2013 @ 10:59am 
There's a ship dealer in Devries. Go there and ask around.
RogueChristian Nov 18, 2013 @ 11:06am 
thanks...

i used the construction vehicle to do the food quest and it worked ok for me :/

oh and you can also just use the 30mil from selling the taranis and make the carry anything freighter, thats what im using now to collect resources to build my station :D

I'm kinda stuck on the mission too. Firstly people keep mentioning the Taranis but i don't have that in my roster, the ships i have are the Albion, the Construction Vessel, the Gigarum bulk carrier and a ship called the Rahanas which is an energy freighter. Should i also have got the ship from the prison break mission? Or is this Rahanas a substitute for that?

Looking at it's stats it's taken a bit of a beating but the engines are still fine, it's following me around DeVreis. Engineers don't seem to give me the option to fix her, do i need to hire one and put the onboard?

WRT the mission, the Rahanas is specifcally a container energy freighter, will that do for this job or does the ship need to be even more specific to the cargo?
r0oZer Nov 18, 2013 @ 11:20am 
How u can trade with your freighter? I cant trade with him anyways...
VTMusical Nov 18, 2013 @ 11:25am 
specific ships carry specific cargo, but i lost the taranis once because i just left it sitting there for a couple hours and it got shot down cause duh i halfway killed it already lol. If you lost the taranis you can always just build up some money, get good marines (anything above recruit like 20ish) get a marine officer with decent boarding skill and take another big ship and sell it and build another ship with the people in DeVries.

Construction vessel can also buy food rations it just has to be in your squad. it is what i used because i hadnt figured out how to sell ships
