    I have my own method of calculating the standings and just ignore Fdev 2 points for every system 1 point for every favorable system -1 point for every unfavorable system My criteria simply is how far and how much a Power has spread his or her influence inline with their ethos. Population could easily be used in place of system count

    You could go on a rampage in imperial space and throw snails in to the Emperor's garden to reduce your reputation?

    Maybe some of the mission you take involve killing federation ships? So you might be getting a one step forward two steps back effect on your federation repuation. Dunno just speculating. Getting many fines? Scanned by secuirity while carrying stuff you shouldnt?

    Cutter, will pay for itself quicker adn the jump range is far better. Failing that I suggest that you go for the one that will be easiest for you to unlock first, based on your current ranks and reputation

    Hi if you are looking for outbreak info, the Antal Reddit group provides and up to date **daily** news feed on them in their region along with where USS thpawn convoys so you can farm the wakes for FSD range enhancements and the nearest place to purchase basic medicines to make at least 3000 cr proift per tonne. The daily Utopia Famine and Ourbreak News Feed is available at

    Hi Op. There is no reason why the should be wanted other wise they woudl be sent after each other until they are all gone :D Yes you can clear bounties by paying them off after a rebuy etc. It is perfectly possible to be at any level of combat and in any kind of ship and not have a bounty on you. Bounty Hunters are clean by default. They are going after criminals. They are not space pirates. They will become wanted if they attack you in a system where you are clean.

    I miss the seeking weapons too. They added a nice extra to smuggling content and side portion of game play around civil wars. They paid pretty well too without being over the top.

    Ah that's fine. It would be good if we had more info about a stuff but when there are gaps it ca be kind of un working it out for ourselves. Antal's peasants are really quiet bunch of chaps. The whole kind of commune thing doing there won stuff together while every one else is in a a bit oa a back and forth about stuff. They do pretty well so far, 700 systems where all forms of slavery is completely illegal and no slaves for sale. Its 'a nice role playing stuff. Curing famines and out breaks and providing proof and reason on the how and where for is in some ways more worthwhile than Thagroids and wars between super powers. Well maybe. I'm probably one of the most noisy Utopians but even if quiet, Utopian peasants are active. For instance Antals Utopian's were the first power in Maia and controlled the system when Obsidian Orbital was created, long before any other but not a lot of folk know. Anyway's I think the are always doing research in to curing the galaxy of it ills so any thing you...

    I didnt think it was a about profit. Sorrt hat was just a cut and paste form today's Utopian health report. A war, civil war, or election will stop all other states. If you pump in meds once the outbreak happens it will boost the factio from outbreak to boom. If you just want to cancel the out break and let another state happen then pump in meds now. Research has been carried out for a subsantial period on what causes outbreaks and proof testing is in progress. There are many ideas out there but none have been substantiated. The Sim BGS Guru's of Antal are ready to prove what it is. They may be wrong,they may be right but it will be evidenced.

    Rather than direct you elsewhere. Deliver Basic Medicines. The Ourbreak will probably happen anyway but it can be conuurted and even used to teh systems benefit. The Antal power (peace loving but strict) has a daily updated of how to make a solid income from supporting systems suffering outbreaks and famine,and at teh same time gathering engineering matrails to enable long distance exploration. Anyway here's today's report ===================================== Famine/Outbreaks! - High Profit Missions and Prices for Food and Medicine in the following Systems
