Goddammit. The Python is pure fucking instant win. I just cannot explain how awesome this ship is. I haven't fought a human player yet...but all the AI is might as well be static meat. I went to a combat zone and literally killed a ship every two seconds. I out killed the spawn rate.
But...FUCK...everything is so expensive. The clipper was cool with it's 242t cargo bay. But it was half as expensive...so upgrades weren't too troublesome. Python is like, upgrade? $16 million please. Oh, upgrade your armor? $56 million. The hell. First world problems, sorry for complaining. I just don't like how you need to trade so much.
After 4 billion trade runs, there should be something else to make money, yes?
I'm thinking I'm going to grind a few more million, then sell my python to get the t9. This game seems really fucking crazy about trading to get 'good' ships. I dunno.
I'm having fun, but the progression curve is spiraling out of control.
