Well, as long as you are controlling the ship, the sector trader script goes idle - but i guess you already knew that.


crystals

iirc crystals are produced in crystal fabs, and those are not among the most common farms. Why they are just looking for crystals, that is unknown to me, and quite puzzling.

I had that problem in Albion Prelude, I'm not sure if it works the same way or not in xtended TC, but if there is an enemy in the sector it goes to standby. If you are enemies with any of the main races change them to friend and turn off "show as enemy if enemy to me" in the trader's command console. That fixed it for me anyway. I'm not sure if it will work for xtended, I haven't played it for a while, busy waiting for 2.0
