Just a word of warning for those of you who are going to play X2.
For the second mission, you’re loaned a passenger transport and told to do a bit of trading before you bring it back. However, when you bring it back, the fuckers who loaned you the transport will take everything in the goddamn freight bay! I just lost all my money because those ungrateful fuckers took the 30,000Cr worth of crystals I was looking to unload for a profit. And since I didn’t notice they’d taken it, I’ve since inadvertantly written over any previous saved game that could have helped. Fuckers!
So make sure you sell off your cargo before finishing the second mission.
If you want to get your own back on the ungrateful bastards, before finishing the mission sell those 125w shields the Transporter has for a smooth 350,000 creds - you can sell them right there at the TerraCorp HQ before giving the ship back :p
No offense Tom, but wouldn’t it be obvious that they would take whatever was IN the ship that you gave back to them? Did you have enough room on your other ship to store such a massive load? Did I just say “massive load”?
Well in the mission briefing although it was mentioned that the ship was Terracorp property it wasn’t made obvious that you would lose ‘posession’ of the ship after you had finished the mission.
I actually preferred to eject the shields and the weapons for the ship prior to entering the station and then pick them up with my new ship on my way out… :lol: because I noticed that while you could sell the shields for some reason you couldn’t buy them back after you’d gone to the cutscene and got back into your new ship. And they were 25W shields that I needed for my shiny new transporter.
I tried this last night. Ejected everything in a nice little group just outside of TerraCorp HQ and docked with the station.
I came out with the transporter and two bastard merchants were stealing all of my cargo !! As soon as I appeared on the scene the sneaky bastards flew off a short distance and waited just like vultures. I managed to recover the two 25W shields and two other upgrades.
