(another) Constrictor question

Post by lfnfan » Fri Nov 24, 2017 11:08 am

Hi

I was offered the Constrictor mission in G2, south-west quadrant, right in the middle of a multi-thousand Cr parcel delivery run to the north east quadrant.

I always make my deliveries on time, so put the Constrictor to one side. Too far to one side. Now I can't remember which planet I was at when I received the mission! I have been retracing my steps visiting about 25 planets so far, around where I think I was at the time. But still no messages yet when I dock.

My question is: am I wasting my time? Will the Constrictor still be in the same vicinity it was when I was offered the mission, about 70 jumps ago? Or could it now be anywhere in G2 again?

Any advice much appreciated!

Check your F7 screen when you dock. That's where the Constrictor messages should appear, whenever available.
