    Ohhh the pain!

    OK I forgot how painful it can be starting fresh, I have been taking it easy cruising around trading and picking up some easy jobs to build up my rep and fleet, and totally forgot about the bad guys... It didn't take long for them to find me cruising around in my nice fat freighter with all this cargo and no Vidar to watch my slow a$$ Mercury! It wasn't pretty and I barely slipped through a gate to safety. I did make it out in mostly one piece, but I took some heavy damage and much of my hard earned equipment was destroyed and some of the cargo with it, so I am now limping around looking for a shipyard to do some repairs and pick up the equipment I lost. I called in my Discover Raiders and as soon as they arrive I will be keeping them close at hand. I think I will try and pick up a few more if I can just to be on the safe side. On the bright side I did sneak back out from the Solar Power plant after the Pirates were out of sight and had a good jaunt around the sector picking up some salvage, those boys sure seem to have missiles to spare, I was racing a Magnatar to claim all the unexploded missiles and picked up more than a dozen.

    Lesson learned, always have protection!
    Regards,
    Mike "Ears Hopin" P.

    lolol Mike.

    As you are telling the story, I am seeing it all in my mind. Been there, done that. I was destroyed twice, but restarted from saved points where I had just docked with a station. When it happened though, I was just staring at the screen thinking 'no way! that did NOT just happen!', the sad 'crash' X3 music score playing in the background, my debris spinning off into infiniti... <sniff.....>

    Thanks Gary for the advice. I will be doing that. I have 'never' sold a ship! I have had this game, I think 3+ years, and never sold one, single ship!!!

    Ahhhh, then you've been missing out on some good and easy credits Mike.The last few nights I've played I've added to my credits with assassination jobs, of which one paid just 12 credits under 10 milion. Yep, you read right. The ships and wares claimed hasn't hurt either. I've now amassed a small but tidy fortune that has exceeded just over 925 million credits. Now if this was real money..... oh what a time I could have. LOL

    I think when I hit 1 billion I might start a fresh career. Or maybe not. LOL

    Merry Christmas guys. I'll see you out in the X Verse. Capt. Jack Sparrow, over and out.... for now. :d :salute:

    LMAO.... Bill, my autograph ain't worth the paper it'd be writtin on. Besides, I'm not a billionaire yet. Remember now, this has been done with next to none trading. All done by sector protection, a wee bit of taxi service, selling claimed ships, and a whole bunch of assassinations. :d The rest ain't worth my time. LOL
