    Illicit or legit? Makes a huge difference...

    The Cutter also makes past benchmarks irrelevant.

    Either, I guess. Wondering how far off the top I am with just over 2M....

    Illicit sure does - saw someone on the XBox forum had a hold full of Shadow missions - around 80 million IIRC.

    Once upon a time, I called at a far off location selling crystallised gold (Sothis).
    For some reason, the quantity on offer wasn't the normal 20 tons...
    I returned with my python and filled as much as I could into the hold (swapping out the docking computer, ADS for cargo)
    IIRC that shows up in my trading stats as about 4.4 M Cr...

    Obviously, if you can full a trading Cutter with rare goods, you'll have at least 500 x 15000 Cr (7.5 M Cr or thereabouts)

    Fly Safe!

    My highest single legal transaction (T9 hauling) Just under 2.5 million (2,475,825) Illegal bulk hauling, 2.3 million (2,234,496) Have never hauled huge amounts of rare goods.

    Haven't tried normal trading in my Cutter.

    Shall we count Smuggling?

    If so, my largest was from Sothis back in 1.4 when a single mission was 9.5 million for 8 Slaves (Think it was Slaves, may have been Bio-Waste)

    Missions don't show up in the 'Highest transaction' tab, Kinda glad it doesn't show those transactions, those Sothis runs were crazy. The smuggling and trade page only shows commodities bought and then sold for a profit.

    Indeed they were, indeed!

    In theory a shieldless mining Cutter filled exclusively with Painite could make in the region of 26 million on a single transaction
