I don't know if you have enough money atm, but I'm shipping palladium and imp. slaves....which are the two most expensive commodities, so I understand if you can't trade them.
I think resonating separators are a good middle ground. They cost $5k (instead of $10k or $12k) and you can make pretty much the same profit (ie that $0.9 to $1.2k per ton)
Yes exactly what I was trading.
The only issue is the station that was supposed to have lots of supply of Palladium has none. So I went to the other station to grab the slaves and sell them at the station where I was supposed to buy the Palladium but that station has no demand for the slaves.
According to the website I was supposed to be making ~2,000 - 3,000 profit per ton and I was making like 30k for the 100ton cargo.
Not to mention the station that was supposed to have high supply of Palladium had 30 units. Tried it an hour later and the station was empty.
From where I was previously I've had to travel over 250Ly to here to do this trade run so I was a bit pissy about it.
Thankfully this place was only 40Ly away from one of the stops in the 11 stop rare run so I am in my Asp loading up on rare goodies.
I've managed to slap a C FSD on it and some cargo expanders. I have about 85 tons of cargo space at the moment.
I still have about 1 mill left to buy the goods but I will upgrade the ship as I go.
Insurance costs 250k to replace this thing so I have to keep an eye on my wallet.
I only have the default 2 tiny weapons on that the ship came with so no combat for me yet until I have some cash to buy equipment.
The Asp does sound like a WW2 plane lolThis comment was edited on Feb 4, 2015, 06:08.
