(1) Passenger deliveries are timed. According to what I found while translating descriptions.plist, there are three different endings of a passenger transport, depending on whether you're early, just in time or late. And it seems you get a bonus in the first case and a malus in the last case (and t...

I think this will sort out some weird behavour that I have seen, such as getting a hold full if my cobra has 34t and I scoop 10kg of gold. I'm not sure this is officially weird: as far as I understand it, all scooped cargo is treated as being 1 ton, regardless of the actual weight, because it's all...

There's a summary of all the missions (when, where, etc.) on the wiki here. I've got no details on the Hesperus OXP though. I think the technical term is "development hell". :wink:

I've thought about an idea like this too (but lacked the coding skills necessary to do anything with it). I originally thought that a separate Amnesty Station could be put inside the main station aegis in Democracy and Confederacy worlds, where slaves could be "sold" for a nominal fixed fe...

Oh, yes... :oops: If the passenger contracts system got overhauled it might be a nice tweak to let it feed in to your contracts reputation. Although then I suppose the trips would need to be timed, like the deliveries. I say this because after building up an excellent reputation in Galaxy 2, and fin...

Keep in mind that the engine chooses the stations based on the TechLevel of the system. The Coriolis is the very basic station and is only found in low-TL systems. It is meant to be non-sophisticated! High TL doesn't necessarily equal sophisticated taste: the USA is one of the most high-tech countr...

Does anyone know if you can build a good reputation carrying passengers, in order to get juicier contracts later on, as with the F8/F8 cargo missions? Or -- which might be better -- if a good passenger-carrying reputation feeds into your cargo-carrying reputation (perhaps at a slower rate)? If it di...

If you want to work your way up the "special deliveries" -- F8/F8 -- rankings, you'll need to get something with a cargo bay big enough to take at least some of the bulk haulage contracts. The PCC is an OK ship, and can hold its own in combat, but as Maegil says it's big and easy to hit. T...

Would you have to test for all possible types of equipment, including ones from OXPs?

I like the Trumble valeting service idea -- but there'd have to be a steep additional charge!
