      Default The Free Ships *Spoliers*

      Since this area has nothing in it, really, and this seems to be a common question over at Egosofts forums. I thought I should just as well post it here.
      This is vanilla only, as you can't capture the X-Craft yet (.5C). To capture the ships fly up to 10 m (outside of your ship) hit 'i', then claim.
      Free ships:
      Menelaus Frontier: Toucan Hauler - Coordinates: 43, -7, 35
      The Vault: Harrier Sentinel - Coordinates: -25, -10, -14
      Unknown Sector near Xenon Sector 534 - Falcon Sentinel - Coordinates: -20, 3, 2
      Second Unknown Sector by Maelstom - Nova - Coordinates: 12, 1, 19
      Xenon Sector 101 - Scorpion Raider - Coordinates: 0, 0, 80
      Treasure Chest - Buster Sentinel - Coordinates: 0, 50, 0
      Akeela\'s Beacon - Buster Sentinel - Coordinates: 30, 10, 30
      Family Whi - Iguana Vanguard - Coordinates: 0, 0, 40
      LooManckStrat's Legacy - Mamba Raider - Coordinates: 17, 0, 0 *
      Depths of Silence - Mako Raider - Coordinates: 1, -3, 38
      Unknown Sector west of Unholy Descent - Pericles Vanguard - Coordinates: 10, 10, 10
      Family Tkr - Buzzard Hauler - Coordinates: 35, -7, 10

You can tell it to jump out to simplify matters...
      Just to make things more organized and if the topic goes off topic :P and becomes long, this will make it easier for others to find information. Thanks to those who have helped!

      Useful thread Noobtastic!

      If there was much else in here I\'d guess that it would be close to being a sticky!

      I have another thing to say. The Nova in the Unknown sector is also hard to get. First you must find the gate to the sector(keep searching , it\'s hard to get). Also , the Nova has no engine tunnings , so it will be slow like hell , and you wont be able to get her out in one piece. I sugest going in a fast m4(so you could carry a jump drive , a Mako Raider should do , to claim it fast , give her the Jumpdrive and E-cells , and tell her to jump out. It should be easy enough to get out of there this way!

      That\'s what I did, and a lot on ES suggest that option as well.

      Also , you should try to get the Falcon from the US near Getsu Fune . It has 2 bays with 125mw shields!

      I\'m not sure about this...but thats because its just a Falcon Sentinel right? The only reason its not everywhere is because ES took them out or something because of balance reasons one patch or another, if i remember correctly.

      Either way, its nice, but too slow for me. I do well with it, but its just not fun (for me). I need either speed/maneuverability or a bunch turrets.
