Just completed the first mission in my Type 6 Transporter which I've christened "BATTERY" in reference to my car battery being dead this morning and needing to be replaced. I plan to use this vessel as a cargo/personnel transporter. Once I've earned enough credits through various missions I then plan to purchase a Python (this is where the real money is made) and use it to haul cargo earning even more credits.
I desperately need to choose a Faction... I was strictly Alliance while on the Xbox and will probably go with them again. I like their construct and mission selection. I need to get over to Alliance space and find a good station to settle down in for awhile. I think I know just where...
I'm currently at that stage where one wants to make money fast and easy. So I am considering which ship to buy next. If I purchase a pure hauler, that will certainly aid me in my immediate mission choices and credit earnings. Or do I want to wait a little while and then purchase an exploration vessel which can also serve a dual purpose as a hauler.
I think I'm going to go with the pure cargo hauler and also outfit it with passenger accommodations, that way I can have it hauling cargo as well as personnel which will help boost my finances quite quickly.
Finally am able to upload flight data thanks to all the CDRS in the forums. A big thank you to all who had patience and willingness to assist me. I haven't been anywhere yet, just getting started. I made a pretty good dent via the xbox console, own many ships, discovered many systems etc.
I suppose good things will come in time out here... ok, time to go out there and create.

Having been on the Xbox where I have done some extensive exploration. I am now making my first strides on the PC (thanks to black Friday).
