plz let us sell our missiles, drone parts, fuel

Postby DarkenDragon » Sun Sep 16, 2012 11:06 pm

plz let us, sometimes we get soooo much junk we dont even use cuz our ship isnt capable of using them.

also to make things a little easier, would it be possible to have the exit system always be a store? this way we can sell our junk, buy new equipment and such. cuz having shops in random places can be very annoying cuz by the time you meet up with it, you might not have any scrap and you cant go back to it afterwards cuz the enemy has taken it over.

this way you can plan ahead and also maybe upgrade yourself. many times i've failed cuz I just didnt have the money to buy stuf, or never found a shop when I had the money.

You can already sell all of those things. You just need to find the right places to do so.

Except you don't. You find randomized stations. On several playthroughs I never found any and I explore a good 50% of the nodes in most sectors.

Now it doesn't quite make sense that a merchant would not consider buying rockets from you in "These dangerous times". Why would he buy a drone but not a rocket?

Presumably he doesn't have any missile weapons systems. He doesn't want them for the exact same reason you don't want them.

I think it's better that you can't sell them at normal shops it forces you to think carefully about your play style and adapt to the situation. If I have a lot of missiles I'll just get a small missile launcher and sell an energy weapon. If I have a lot of drone parts I'll try to get a drone system going.

The devs have stated they don't want missiles, drones and fuel to became de-facto secondary currencies. There are merchants for this sort of trade, and while they are random, I don't think we'll get more than that.

Would be nice if in the normal stores I could sell these things. Would make life easier. Some runs you get heaps of one or another and don't have the right system and they're just wasted.

I agree that having the option of selling "consumables" on stations would be making us have too much... err... scrap.

I have an immense amount of fun fretting over the economical choices I have to make. Eg. Should I upgrade that weapon/shield/engine or buy that shiny teleporter pad...? Or maybe this new crew member? Or... I know! I can sell that rocket launcher and buy both. Oh, but I have only 3 fuel left! Daym! And so on and on...And on and on. :P

Having the option to sell extra (read useless - no launcher or drone bay) rockets and drones would make me a scrap'o'naire. :P
If you say 'pls' because it's shorter than 'please', then I say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.
