@bookworm2156 - great suggestion about custom difficulty. I often forget that. You can crank that really easy.

Also, have you considered lowering the difficulty? Custom difficulty is a great way of making, say, the ship combat more forgiving, or boosting profits from trade. If you aren't already, I would suggest playing Normal or Easy difficulty for a good way to learn the game.

We've got plenty of veterans around both on the forums and on our discord, so feel free to post wherever if you're interested in specifics!

(also, the wiki has all the talents for each job, as a stopgap to use until its implemented in game)

@andypu - at the beginning of the game I would highly recommend just surrendering until you have the crew, ship and talents to not only win, but win with minimal cost to yourself through post-victory repair and heal talents - these will make a huge difference in the sustainability of combat for you.

Do you mean the second story missions, or those you get from contacts after the intial "proving your charter" period? Some of the story missions will no doubt be challenging if your ship/crew build isn't ready for it. As for the contact missions, I like to take the non-combat "Diplomatic Tour" missions as a safe way of building up some cash and rep. Only the faction that the mission is against will confiscate your passenger if you surrender to them, and this can be avoided by using the level 1 smuggler talent "Hideout".

We're working on adding Talent preview.

@andypu - you might find the Ship Combat section of the wiki helpful as it is has all the dice rolls. Also, check your local Ship Combat Log :D

How to avoid ship battles without surrender? I tried as spy with stealth but it is not clear what mechanics are involved how can i sneak by a ship? Also i feel you should add more settings to the encounter screen like negotiate bribe and flee. They should then be checked against the talents.

There is no way to preview the talents of a new job. I have no idea what jobs and talents mitigate rep loss. If it is so easy well i can agree that its not nessasarly required.

@j_k98248 - are you using the mission button in the bottom left hand corner to initiate the delivery?
