Elite 3 - First Encounters
A Brilliant trading route which is totaly safe! The route is : 1: Go to sol (system) 2: Sell all equipment except for autopilot nav computer and atmospheric shielding. 3: Buy enough fuel for a trip to Bernards star (near Sol) 4: Fill up remaining cargo space with luxury goods 5: Hyperspace to Bernards star 6: Go to a station (I used miller depot) 7: Sell all luxury goods 8: Buy enough fuel for a trip back to Sol. 9: Fill up remaining space on Robots or Computers 10: Hyperspace to Sol 11: Sell Robots or Computers for huge profit. (look on bulletin board for special buyers) 12: Repeat until very rich. To give you an idea of how well this works , in two hours of playing I got from a viper defence craft MII to a Griffin carrier!! More tips obtained from the Internet. ------------------------------------- I've been hired to kill somebody (as usual) , but when the time came for the 'somebody' to come out of a space station - he didn't ! I tried loading an old game and trying agian; but it still didn't work. Can anybody tell me why this is happening ple ase? Also does anybody know how to edit the amount of money you have in the floppy version? Usually, they will not come out on the exact time.. if you wait l ater, about 3 or 4 minutes, sometimes they come out.. I've had someone come out much later, and MY problem is that they jump into hyperspace immediately. However sometimes I try to launch a missile at them, and as SOON as I launch, there is an explosion, (my missile exploding right in front of me, and its not a result of ecm either) and then he disapears.. no hyperspace cloud or anything.. but about 5 miles out there is debris.. metal all oys.. I'd return to collect my bounty, and they say that they are disappointed etc.. Its pissing me off because I can't do any assasinations whatsoever! I too have it patched.
