Original Post-Reason for Thread Resurrection-Goal:Reach Baron or Viscount in a day!Requirements:
Type-6 or better ship and jump range over 12.7 Ly ladenRecommended:
Python, Trailblazer or Pathfinder Exploration rank, Merchant or Broker Trade rank, and a few mill to burn.Disclamer:
Guide has only been tested three times and that was before the changes to the missions system. This guide may be less effective for those with low trade and exploration rank. The Trade Route:
The Main Route for large landing pads is in orange with the optimal route adding a stop in Hercuni. Personally I would not neglect Hercuni because they have 3 factions dedicated to the empire and a lot of missions. Kamocan and Indrachit have more than one large station that is close to the main star.
An optimal route would bePunatati->Agarla->Kamocan->Indrachit->Kamocan->Hercuni->Indrachit
. it is faster to jump back and forth between the systems than it is to fly in system between stations. You should be able to find something to trade between each station even though it will be for minimal credits.The real goal is to complete trade, smuggling, and delivery missions between the systems. Things to Remember:DO NOT ACCEPT MISSIONS FROM NON EMPIRE FACTIONS!
Some of the systems have stations in the far distance, don't take delivery missions to those stations. Don't take missions if you don't have time to complete them. Negative reputation builds faster than positive so don't fail missions. Don't make jumps between stations without a full cargo hold because trading will raise your rep too. List of Factions by System:
Punatati: Law Party of Punatati, LTT 9577 Central Company, Punatati Purple Transportation, Punatati Order
Agarla: Agarla Patron's Principles, Agarla Citizens' Forum
Kamocan: Kamocan Empire Pact, Kamocan Purple Universal Corp.
Indrachit: Indrachit Empire Consulate, Indrachit Partners
Hercuni: Indrachit Empire Consulate, Hercuni First, Kamocan Purple Universal Corp.
Why you should not skip Hercuni
Examples of a few completed missions from back when I was actively running this route for rep.
