D'oh, I missed that edit!
Just fyi, you don't get notoriety for non violent crimes. Megaship piracy is "ok".
Just want to say props to Factabulous for giving me a reason to engage in an aspect of the game I've not had a reason to try until now. [up]
Well, I'm giving it a try but it looks like it's bugged... most of the cargo canisters don't leave the cargo hold, so I can only get a small fraction of the neofabric insulators - this last time the cargo scanner detected 7 of them, but only 2 actually made it out of the ship and collector limpets just crash into the hull and can't fish the rest out. Ah well.
bring manifest scanner, hatchbreaker limpets, collector limpets.
Find a wrecked megaship - the two in Pleiades Sector IR-W d1-55 near the Oracle (Banner and Hercules class) have lots of cargo holds, though you will probably have to relog.
Datalink scan ship, then Manifest scan cargo holds until you find the one you want. Datalink Scan the cargo hatch, target the Limpet Docking Point subtarget, scoop the tasty loot.
* Of course these are somewhat random, so you might need to find another - I hear reports of others in Electra
Edit: As someone pointed out later, unwrecked megaships give stolen goods, so useless for most ppl. So I changed the post to talk about how to get them from wrecked megaships as then they are not stolen, and the technique is easier. Though you don't get as many as above
And I added a video of me doing it in a later post : https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showt...ion-anywhere?p=6561640&viewfull=1#post6561640
thanks for this - it was a great help !!! +1 rep, thanks again.... appreciated.
D'oh!To use that post you also need a time machine back to when the thread was live ...
OK, so neo-fabs are only available as mission rewards?
Actually, looks like I can buy them - that's what EDDB says.
Apologies in advance and sorry for resurrecting a necro-thread!
Rescuing passengers from burning stations is a fast way to get mission only commodities (burning stations might be rare at the moment)
A Conda with a size 7 cargo rack rest economy cabins is quite a solution
