    How big is the money problem really?

    As we *all run around worrying about money for a certain new ship that may be arriving in December I thought I'd ask how much of an issue is it, if it is billions to buy? Is there a list of CMDRs fortunes, maybe a published average of CMDRs current money on hand? If you're **mega rich let us...

    Slavers and Passenger Transport

    Idk if this will fall on deaf ears but I wanted to throw a small suggestion. When transporting people you sometimes get a request from slavers to sell you the people you are transporting. They offer a way lower price and sometimes way out of the way. I think it would be a good idea if the...

    An idea on missions vs Rebuy cost

    I personally feel when it comes to missions, you should get some sort of bonus money based on how valuable your ship is, like first, the initial price of the mission, Plus an extra 50% Rebuy cost money added. The more expensive your ship is the more money you will make through doing missions...
