AJSA Trading in StarCitizen

19 posts in this topic

Hey everyone,

My name is Edwards,

I was just wondering how many of you out there were thinking of primarily going into the business of trading in StarCitizen? If so what ships are you using and what type of cargo are you going to haul?

If you aren't interested in trading and are more of a gunning type. Leave a comment, always nice to be able to get hold of a mercenary when the pirates aren't playing by the rules.

Thanks guys/gals,

See you in the Verse !

My plan right now is to have a "main" character that is a merchant/smuggler or possibly explorer type.  Will be starting off small (1 person Aurora operation) and seeing how far I can take it.

I'm somebody who likes action the most so i'll probably prefer mercenary work..

But i think i'll be doing some trading on the side too when i just want to relax a bit while watching my favorite youtubers or something.

 

I have the hornet for the action and will probably pick up a freelancer or constellation for the trading during the 26th sale day

Well I'm not really into the Supply field but if a fight breaks out and the Angry Army needs fire power, just give the word and I'll light up the sky. I have no problem doing escort runs with people to make sure all is well.

I have the Constellation which will likely be used as a hauling ship for longer freights with an NPC or an AJSA teammate and then use my RSI 325A Fighter to escort it. I'm pretty sure there's going to be trouble wherever you want to haul stuff, so if the AJSA gets a good grip in a system, we'll want to keep it that way!

Just think about 1000 of us picking up the major mining, hauling, processing and manufacturing processes in a system and then shipping it to other systems. We could get a good big corporation going.

First im gonna try out mercinary work, see how i enjoy it. Then maybe later go into piracy or trading, just to get a fell of that to:) but if you need a hired gun to escort your cargo, give me a hollah:)

I'm looking at doing whatever earns me the most money the fastest. The quicker I can own a large ship, the sooner I can begin my acts of piracy.

I'll probably be doing lots of trading as well. I'll be doing it in my freelancer

Good to see a nice mix in what people will be doing in the Verse, should work out nicely. 

Can't wait to see what Joe wants to do as a collective, I know with enough of us we can make a huge impact.

 

Cheers guys.

The business side of simulations have always been a big attraction for me, so I'll definitely be trying my hand at trading. Who knows, I might just strike it big and be the Angry Army's sugar mama for funding! ^-^

 

I think I'll use something that is fast, has decent armor, and most importantly a large storage capacity. A typical freighter sounds like a good start, but it will depend on the environment I suppose.  I'll need to see what is needed by the Angy Army the most before I start trading around. I might be crap at flying in combat but I can empower those who are good at it...For the glory of the Angry Fleet!

I hope that there is a decent balance between those who want to be in combat/support roles. I think that the AJSA should establish a foothold in a system early on, so we have a place to branch out from. And if they don't, I will. I believe that doing something like this would require a strong trade route between our outlying system and the more populated ones. Providing plenty of work opportunities for you traders :D

Merchant/mercenary always attracts me the most, but then a friend of mine will always point me to the most "cost-efficient" build; don't know what this is in Star Citizen yet. So first account will prob be as merchant/mercenary if no one tells me that there are better options, in which case merchant will prob be 2nd account.

Gonna keep true to what I do, so for me I'm gonna be trading from day one.
And I will be optimizing for that purpose alone so it's good to see there are a good deal of Angry mercenaries in here, there are always need for good escorts in a trading imperia :)

For those of you planning a merchant/Trader build i am going the mercenary route to start (Retailiator) and i would be willing and enjoy escorting any number of you on your ventures. Details can be worked out of course but i will mainly try to be an escort for hire so if you feel you need it give me a call ;)

I agree completely, we need to get a base to gain influence in the game. Once that is done in will help us with our  personal goals.

My plan is to be an explorer/trader/mercenary for the most part. Explore new stuff, trade stuff with them, getting bloody rich and doing an escort run every now and then, just for fun.
