All, thanks for your help with this one... I think I found the answer - see the last past for details.
Hey everyone, after years of happy gaming with Xtended for X3R, I finally took the plung over last weekend and moved on to XTC... First, *love* what the Team have done with the game. Awesome.
Next, I hit a weirdness with my first attempt at Sector Trading.
I did the "Argon" start. I have now worked my way up to 2 ships, an Elite and a Mercury.
I have 1 script installed thus far, Cycrow's "Cheat" script.
I would like to set my Mercury up as a Sector Trader in Sirius Prime. I have the software installed and the ship is ready to go. When I use the Ship Menu to "Start Sector Trader" the ship status goes from Idle to "Standby", but nothing else happens. I did a search of the forums and couldn't find a match where anyone else has reported similar. I must have done something really silly here.
Happy to experiment and/or to provide details of system configuration and game state for anyone able to point me in the right direction.
Thanks in advance,
