Hahahah - my character was poor and grizzled, until the great Seeking Luxuries Unicorn Run™ of 3301, which upgraded him from Asp to Python in hours, which then became the stepping stone to billions earned in legitimate trade and nefarious trade, bounty hunting and exploration.I'm so rich, I don't need to care about my looks anymore.
You are merely a cog in the [Dark] Wheel™.Well, what's any of that worth if we as CMDRs
I tell ya, all that wealth, all those shiny Ships, all that "freedom"... It's a huge lie.
- remain trapped in our Ships like mobile prison cells, tied to a chair and stuck inside a Remlok suit, with only an SRV or the oddball Telepresence allowing to escape that misery
- remain worker bees, despite being Billionaires and being factual employers (Crew)
- have almost nothing we could do or affect that exceeds a cosmetic nature
We're trapped worker bees that have to turn a hamster wheel. Like lab rats.
If I want an Element off a Planet Surface, why do I have to do it myself? Why can't I send my Crew to get mundane tasks done?
Why can't I send off my Crew in any of my Ships and have them perform tasks I find boring?
Instead, our Crews are laughing at us, enjoying passive income while >we< do all the hard lifting. Just like in the early days in a Sidewinder, no different.
Putting our hard-earned Equipment and our safety on the line every day.
We might fly tricked out Corvettes, Cutters, Anacondas, carry Naval Ranks with Federation or Empire, have highest Reputation with them or countless Factions.
But still, we can't even remotely order or have transported a single ton of Copper to our convenience.
No, we're not privileged. We're not free. We can't even look behind the darn doors that close off our Cockpits.
We just get to choose where we take our mobile prison cells with us, that's it.
All while our passive-income Crew sips Lavian Brandy and throws Billionaire-style parties at the Home Station. Seriously, tell me who's the real fools in this? Me thinks it's us
That dude looks almost as camp as a CMDR in a golden flightsuit, which struck me as very liberacci
They only accept planetary currency. But you are not allowed to exchange credits for any other currency. Because, really, everything is owned by the Pilot's federation and Commanders are little more than indentured servants. Super rich until you quit. Only way to retirement is on Founder's World.So house prices are that bad in Milton Keynes?
