Been having a good look round, visiting ports, doing different missions - bought myself a Sidewinder for running errands, planetary scans etc, as I’ve not been able to find a Viper or Cobra for sale.
There are a few shipyards around - you can buy a Python for the usual 56million. That and a Type 6 are the only two larger vessels I’ve seen available to buy, though I read you can find others around. I was going to have my Python delivered, but it would cost over 150 million credits!
Might as well buy a new one - but I won’t.
All the same missions are available here, that you would get in the bubble, so it’s not that different, aside from the lack of ship variety available.
I tested my new gold and golden (what’s the difference - gold is matte, golden is gloss), but though the golden one looks great in the hangar, outside both look drab.
I may try a go in one of the RES for some bounties later, even thinking of doing some mining - apparently there is good money to be made mining in these systems. What I really want to do is find an Orca and do some tourist trips, or ferry an explorer round - there are plenty such jobs going.
My noo Sidey - you forget how small and slow these things are, after being spoiled by the larger ships
