    Hahaha that made me laugh.

    I also didn't have that hard a time. I started off with trading just to get some money for better parts. It got boring but I made some nice cash, you just have to find 2 or 3 stations close to one another that have commodities that the other station(s) want.

    I haven't played the game in quite a bit though, I got bored with just trading, or trying to do a bounty but the bounty was against an Anaconda and I had a Eagle.

    but seriously @DieGrootHammer - if you need help, assistance or a buddy to fly with (wingman) let me know and we'll see what we can sort out.

    https://eddb.io/ can help you find trading routes based on the system you're in. I'm not sure if it works for the console versions too.

    You can make some serious cash using that tool.

    Yeah, but kinda makes the game redundant in a sense. I enjoy a more true form of the game and finding things out for myself. To date I have never used external tools for trading or otherwise.


    @DieGrootHammer - seems like you haven't done much so why not restart (wipe your save)? The starting port you start in with your Sidewinder, that should give you a few missions. Maybe snap in this video while you're playing... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rtajDGnqAo

    Another option is to add a fuel scoop and a discovery scanner. Plot a course about 50Ly away, use the scanner on every system on your way over and sell the discoveries at your destination.

    It's not the most profitable venture, but if you get lucky you can easily make about 20k or 30k a run.

    yeah, the sidewinder is also very versatile and a good all rounder. Rather travel a little further like say ~100ly to make a little more, I think they pay higher if over. I've read stuff on reddit of people flying their Sidewinders to outskirts of the bubble. Like ~64000ly.

    Okay, so I got a mission now that FINALLY paid well. FINALLY!!! It's as if the game knew I was sick of it and gave me a lifeline. Got 80k credits for some multihop courier mission. I'll watch that video thanks @BeoTeK , and I'll check that website out to see if it works for the console version @Graal .

    It's dangerous, though. Sometimes you get clumps of dead stars where you can't fuel scoop and then you're screwed. If you're going to travel that far it might be worth checking the Economic Route box so that it takes you short distances at a time. It will take ungodly long, but you should be safe.

    Lol.... yes, I think we've all been down there

    But I have found a solutions, they're called Fuel Rats. If you become stranded, they come out to refuel you via limpets. Very nice indeed.
