i can think of a few wreckages that has some value. in the border worlds where zoners base 10 is located. when you arrive at omi alpha jumphole check on the map nearby you will probably find a few level 10 weapons their ithink they are called prometheus or cerberus. as you said when you finish the mission after the quick visit at ruiz base, you head to a japanese system more or less directly ahead of you is a dense blue cloud, head in their near the top left of that cloud from your position looking on the map and you will find a ship in their with some sunblasts and skyblasts, very useful for later missions. in the system with the water planet nearby an orange planet, on the far right between 1 of 2 jump gates to cortez and a zoners controls system with ames research base, i think its called shikuku, head 1 quarter up the left trade lane coming from zoners ames system to the bounty hunters's base  and head out about 2 or 3 blocks, you will find a wreckage their, im not entirely sure as i have looted it twice, i found a few level 10 weapons their, silver fire i think they where called or some handful of level 5-6 weapons.
german system, stuttgart in an orange cloud about 30 clicks out from any trade lane, about 2 or 3 clicks inside the cloud heading from the middle of the trade lane between stuttgart and baden baden head to the cloud directly from that direction, check the map once 2 to 3 inside and check for wreckages, if lucky you will find some german fighters with stealthblade mkII onboard.

its not that tedious, it gives you a chance to be prepared for the next part of that mission which is important, even so i dont think you can ever be that prepared in any case... of course unless your androgeos :lol:

I generated so much net worth on my cheat character that when I completed the singleplayer campaign, I jumped all the way to Level 34, and I had 550 000+ credits. I was 1 800 credits away from Level 35, so I went to sell my Driller Mine.

Then I did the following, in order:

- I went to Rochester and bribed the Junkers to friendly. That changed the Liberty Rogues from hostile to neutral-hostile.
- I went to Buffalo and bribed the Outcasts to friendly. That changed the Liberty Rogues to neutral, the Lane Hackers to near-neutral, the Junkers to very friendly, the Corsairs to hostile, the Mollys to hostile, and the Bounty Hunters Guild to hostile.
- I flew to the Texas system, shooting down Xenos and Bounty Hunters.
- Somehow, I found the Unioners base in Bering, named Pacifica. Just as I was about to dock to sell my loot, one of the ten Unioners demanded that I handed by Consumer Goods over, so I did.
- Leaving Pacifica, I made my way to the Frankfurt system, where I tried to buy the Sunslayer Torpedo Launcher from the Bundschuh in Bruschal, but couldn't because I was not on friendlier terms with them.
- I left and made my way to Omicron Beta, where I got shot at by some Bounty Hunters along the way (I killed them). :drevil:
- Nothing eventful happened at Omicron Beta as I flew across the system to the Omicron Alpha jump node.
- I flew near the Unknown jump hole in Omicron Alpha and shot down three wings of Nomad Interceptors, getting a Nomad Energy Blaster and Nomad Energy Cannon.
- I landed on Planet Malta in Omicron Alpha, where I realised that I was 254 000 credits short of buying the Border Worlds Sabre, so I traded in, among other things, all my weapons below Class 8, the six Salamanca Mk. Is I salvaged from Omega-5, two PROMETHEUS Prototypes, the Nomad Energy Blaster, two BLUE BLAZE prototypes, 10 Paralyser missiles, and all my turrets except for the Debilator Turret I bought from Planet Toledo. That brought the price of the ship down to about 70 000 credits.
- I flew back out to the Unknown jump hole and found four Driller Mines, four Wyrm Type 2s, 40 Paralyser Missiles, and two CERBERUS Prototypes. I also shot down twelve Nomad Interceptors and salvaged another five Nomad Energy Cannons. Getting all that levelled me up TWICE.
- I returned to Planet Malta and sold off two JADE Prototypes and another Prototype gun, as well as two Nomad Energy Cannons and the two GMG Skyblast B cannons.
- I out again and blew up several Bounty Hunter ships before going back to Omicron Alpha and selling my spoils, as well as 40 Paralyser Missiles. That maxed out my level. The blowing up of so many Bounty Hunter ships brought me into speaking terms with the Corsairs.
- I upgraded my shield to Adv. Brigandine H.F. Shield and changed by weapons configuration.

As of now, my ship is as such:

Series Z "Sabre" Border Worlds Very Heavy Fighter
2 x Wyrm Type 2
2 x Nomad Energy Cannon
2 x DIAMONDBACK
Debilator Turret
40 x Hornet Cruise Disruptor
40 x Ripper Mine
20 x Adv. Countermeasure Dropper
Advanced Thruster
Adv. Brigandine H.F. Shield

Lobo, do you know if Tripoli Shipyard sells a Tizona del Cid Turret?

milti version actually puts some interest into the game, good on androgeos to find something to do in a universe full of path restricted ais who are hopelessly outmatched by androgoes cheat character.

played the multi games before , however the server is no longer and now they put out ips on server machines. everyone usually take the nomad weapons tizonas and screamer mines which androgeos forgot :P.

Ripper Mines beat the hell out of Screamer Mines. I assessed the damages done by both, so I know. Either that or I've mixed the Razor with the Ripper.

Where do you get Paralyzer Missile Launchers anyway? I get the missiles, but not the launcher.

The discovery mod is fine, in my opinion. Pity that I like to choose the most boring options when loading it from FLMod Manager. :D

I bribed the Corsairs to friendly, so now I'm on excellent terms with both the Corsairs and Outcasts, as well as the Liberty Rogues and Junkers. :D

I went to Tripoli Shipyard, but the Corsairs don't sell a Tizona turret, so I did the next best thing: I unmounted my two Wyrm Type 2 guns and purchased two Tizona del Cid guns. After that, I went back to Planet Malta and sold my Debilator Turret for a Kraken Turret.

I also spoke to an Outcast in the bar, and I heard something interesting. See the attachment.

I've started playing this again on a whim. Does anyone know if a way to become friendly with the Liberty criminal factions (in the early stages) that doesn't involve spending ages hunting for the odd Bounty Hunter ?

I really wish I could customise the cahricter at the start of the game.

Well, have you tried disrupting trade lanes? It's a fun thing to do if you don't care about being hostile to lawful factions.

In addition, pilots from different factions will unite if one of them has an enemy, so if you're flying into an area filled with neutral Police and hostile Bounty Hunters, the Police units will turn hostile and attack you as well.

to get on terms with pirate factions early on without making a real enemy of the police, shoot some depot supplies if they exist, their is one near manhatten, a police depot and one behind Baltimore shipyard once you shoot down either one the hostility will decrease, i suggest if in single player to head the nearest jump gate and scramble once their the hostilities will probably of ended otherwise try get yourselfon a mission quickly as the hostilities will be stopped right there. if your in multi, shoot them out and jump out of the server to the character selection and go back in :P.

Code: [Select]
Corsairs:         level  hul/shd  range     refire energy - place to buy
  Angelito Mk I       5  121/60   600/600    4.00    24   -   all Corsair bases
  Borroco       5  10/308   600/600    4.00    24   -   all Corsair bases
  Angelito Mk II      6  158/79   600/600    4.00    31   -   all Corsair bases
  Angelito Mk III     7  209/104  600/600    4.00    41   -   all Corsair bases
  Rapier       7  17/531   600/600    4.00    41   -   all Corsair bases
  Salamanca Mk I      8  318/159  600/600    4.00    63   -   Leon, Tripoli
  Salamanca Mk II     9  489/244  600/600    4.00    97   -   Crete
  Tizona Del Cid      9  40/1242  600/600    4.00    97   -   Cadiz, Tripoli
thats all the weapons the corsairs have, no such turret exists called a tizona del cid turret, although i wish their was, it would make my weapons selections easier.

Mass-murder the Xenos. That just leaves one angry "pirate" faction. Everyone else will be happy. At that point of the game.

Oh yeah. I forgot about that. The Xenos are enemies with EVERYONE except the Zoners and IMG.

Yeah, I've never heard of that before. It has the heading "Rumor" and I believe it was supposed to inform the player that there's a fifth Sleeper Ship in Sirius known as the Hispania, but...eight Sleeper Ships? That wasn't covered in either intro movie. I also thought that the five Sleeper Ships that made it to Sirius were launched in Jupiter, not Pluto.
