Greetings, finally the game seems mature enough to bother setting up my HOTAS and buying and selling stuff in the verse.  I have loaded my Freelancer with about 19 commodities from Agricume at 25.72 a unit, to Waste at 0.09 and have been flying around mapping out who sells and buys what commodities and at what price.  I have some data on revenue based on the amount you need to invest in the cargo.

I have noticed that prices vary at some locations, I suspect based on the degree to which the demand is satisfied so it is possible that margins on runs will change if they become too popular.  This variation could also be random, just logging in and out of the terminal has changed some of the pricing.  Best return so far for investments under 10,000 is Processed Food at 836 a run.  Investments up near 20,000 you can get up to 1,900 a run for Stims.  At 35,000 or so you can get up to 2,350 a run for Distilled Spirits.  The big dog so far is Medical Supplies for 130,000 earning 7,200 a run.  I have not made any of these runs as my cargo compartment is filled with crates of different commodities so I can see who is buying what and for how much.  These numbers assume 7600 units per run which seems to be the count regardless of material volume or weight (100 commodity units per cargo space unit regardless of the commodity).

The more of us running around the faster we can map the area and make trade roots.  I have not figures all the jump lanes, but from different locations you jump into orbits at different locations requiring additional jumps so developing the best trade routes will require good jump maps.  If you have further information to share, please do.

      All set now.  Thanks!
       
      I have an LTI P-72. I would like to trade it for any starter pack that includes Squadren 42 and PU.  Ship doesn’t matter. I expect it would likely be an Aurora with 3 months ins.

      We have a thread for the base Freelancer.... one for the MIS and one of the DUR.... but not for the MAX - and since the revamped version is now out - thought I'd create a thread.
      ++++++++++++
      Wanted to address an important point many not be aware of.........  many look at the Constellation Taurus with its Smuggling Hold......... greater upgrade (to other Connie components)...... more cargo capacity ........ (+ I still think it is under-priced)....... and wonder why you would ever pick a Freelancer MAX over a Taurus.    My personal take is I would still choose the Taurus......... however....... there are some important things that people may not realize about Freelancers.   Ben Lesnick (CIG) awhile ago on an RTV mentioned that Freelancers not only have Xi'An tech for their thrusters but also this Xi'An Tech does shield the entire ship (not just the cargo hold) from some casual scans (doesn't block scans but lessens their accuracy).
      &&&&&&&&
      The Freelancer is the largest Ship (though CR goes back and forth on this - but so far this is still current info) --------- to be able to go through a Small Jump point (whereas a Taurus is too big to go through Small Jump Points)





       
       
      Fit 2x Cyclones in a MAX, but need more headroom for Ursa

      Omega is rare but I'd rather have a bigger ship like the Freelancer Max or Connie Taurus. 
      My package says giftable. I'm looking to trade straight up for another giftable package. Keep it in the game and complexity down. 
      let me know what you;re willing to trade, LTI? I really don't know how a pkg becomes giftable or not. 
      I would also like both starcitizen and S42 pkgs , They left out S42 on the new pkgs right?
