      Default What is YOUR starting strategy?

      well, i think everybody has a specific strategy how to get money and so on when starting a new game, so lets tell the others about it!

      mine, as i dont like those buster trade-runs with 1000 money, was created accidental, when i was flying trough pirate sectors to pick up missiles. I suddenly saw 600 meatsteak cahoonas lying in space, probaply from a freighter killed by pirates. \"if I only could pick them up and sell them\". That moment, a innocent teladi freighter was passing through the sector - you can imagine the rest

      long story short, from starting ship to 20000 money and a freighter within 1 hour

      The first thing I do are the first 3 missions... so I could get the jumpdrive and some rank. Next I\'m on my way to The Hole and I cap one or two Paranid Vultures(yes , because they bail most of the time.) The next step is to capture a few pirate ships to get money for a few satelites and the starting money for trading... and then I manually trade OOS using the jump drive... with a vulture I get aroun 100000-200000 in a game-hour , but as soon as I can get my hand on a Dolphin SuperFreighter I\'m able to get 400000 per trade round.

      As I am an unintelligent and brutal beeing, i trade a few e-cells till I can buy fight command software 1 and 2.
      Then I cap pirate ship with buster.
      Then I buy a small transport and resell space fuel.
      Then I buy a MKIII.

      But most of my begining money comes from pirates ships and their remains.

      I use the Yaki Armada, and various guild scripts by Cycrow, So I usually explore till I find a guild base (Bounty Hunters are good) or come across a Yaki MPB and start doing jobs for money.

      I pretty much do as Methraton, perhaps not selling space fuel but chasing pirates!

      I take my starting buster and go after the pirates as well. I usually start my campaign in Elena\'s Fortune; because there are many pirates and it helps my Argon rep. I do sell Fuel and Weed when I come across them.

      Once I get a licence, I take out smugglers and then I get a M6. After that, it changes to commonly to state.

      I am not your average, everyday noob.

      I go and grab the free toucan. (i actually grab them all when i get a chance ;D ). Or i start quickstart. I like having a starting freighter.

      Cap, cap, more capping. (i\'m actually really bad at this....so it takes me a while), maybe a freighter run or two - until i have enough to set up sector trader. Then i just keep on capping, BBS, perhaps some plot missions, etc. Until i can set up another one. And they eventually graduate to UTs.

      I make some small trade-runs until I\'ve got my Buster properly-equipped (playing on Xtreme), then I go and cap a few pirates. Once I have about 700k I buy a freighter and use it to trade spacefuel in Heron\'s Nebula, while I continue capping.
      Once I have about 1m I build either an Ore Mine or Silicon Mine in Ore Belt, then move my freighter over to be an ECell buyer for it.
      After that comes the rest of my Empire. ;D

      I usually go get the free toucan, iguana + harrier.
      keep the toucan, sell the other 2 for upgrades cash and then send it to sell SpaceFuel from Herrons Nebula to the trading station there and the closest 2 pirate stations.
      So while i'm waiting for some profit to show from this i go exploring and picking up most/all of the freebies 'round the map. By the time i've made
      my first 'loop' of the universe i have made a tidy sum from this one trader, the goodies i've picked up and any capping/killing i've done on the way.
      Then it's just time to decide if i want to be :angel: or :evil: lol

      first thing i do is anything that gets me enough money to buy a small hauler and the mk3 trade addon. then i can go off and do the plot/explore while the money comes in. when it does come in i then buy another hauler/mk3 trade untill i have 4 ut's running, then i can just wait for the money to come in and go from there
