3.0 Trading Runs
« on: January 07, 2018, 10:29:19 AM »
Hi guys!

I was finally able to get the game running, had to download the .p4k file separately because my delta patcher would stop mid-download and didn't handle the resume function well...

So, I began re-learning how to fly and the game mechanics to finally begin my trading runs yesterday. Little by little went from 5K to 55K using my Cutlass with Corundum runs from Levski to Olisar. All 46 SCU's filled cost ~13K and return ~20K(so about 50% profit).

I'm about to try diamonds for a couple runs, will report back.

Check out this trading run page if you haven't already: https://starcitizen.danielaburke.com/Trading

It was spotlighted by CIG's newsletter.

Ok... A 46 SCU diamond run from Levski to Olisar went like this:

  • 83K investment
  • 134K sale
  • 51K profit

Not without someone at Levski trying to sabotage my 83K in diamonds!!!

At least I got it figured out in the end.

I think I'll try Laranite now...

Great report, Krakhen! Thanks for sharing. Think you can join us tomorrow for flight night? Nevermind, saw your RSVP! It would be great to see us do some cargo running together if people are interested.


The Guardians fleet needs you, citizen. Suit up today!

Oh, and for those who can find the "secret" drug lab @ Yela, you can sell WiDoW at GrimHex in small transactions. It will let me sell in continuous 100 unit transactions. Just stating it if by chance anyone gets stuck trying to sell and the terminal just returns errors. They have a nice profit margin but their supply is scarce.
PS: Don't worry about the cargo boxes, they're marked "Medical Supplies" ;) ;).

LOL! Are there any scanning mechanisms in the ports yet (like customs)? That would suck to get busted as an intergalactic drug trafficker

Doesn't seem like it right now, but scanning is supposed to come into play in the future. At Port Olisar, the ship shows used cargo space but no commodity available to sell appears at the terminal.
