The Python does alright it hauls a good load and is a good all around ship.I'm pretty simplistic the way I play. I've not discovered the social side of the game. Just playing solo mode. My main credit gaining activity thus far is surface mining. I don't core mine as I play with mouse and keyboard.
I have four ships. I mine in the Corvette but the rear position of the cockpit makes depth perception a little hard. So I'm looking for a new miner with a sizable cargo storage and front cockpit. Type 10 and 9 suit the task, as does the iCutter. I don't hunt Thargoids etc so that's not a concern. I simply go mining for a few hours when I need credits.
I know the Anaconda suits also, but there's something, probably illogical to avoid buying a Conda. Too common? The big square hull underneath?
Anyway the Type-10 with just the 8M cargo is 512 t and that's ample. In fact the ship kits out well as a miner. Also I see the Type-10 as more versatile than the Type-9.
Anyone care to share some thoughts?
