Cheat: The secret of Frontier id finding a good trading route to build up your credits and here is a good one. Firstly you have to find Cemiess (it's an Imperial-controlled system to the left of Ross 154) and locate its bulletin board. Here you should see an advertisement for goods bought and sold and that someone is willing to pay 3000 to anyone willing to take some precious metals off their hands - sounds like a dodgy deal but you've got to make it while you can. Stock up on as many of the metals as you possibly can and then take them to Tivea to sell. Once you've got a substantial amount of money buy as many robots as you can. You should then take all these back to Cemiess to sell Cheat: For infinite credits all you need to do is get a passenger or parcel (from notices on the bulletin board) and then try to part-exchange your craft for a less expensive one. If you have a passenger on board you won't be able to change ships but you can still get the money difference between your ship and the one you are trying to buy. (You could if you wish do this with a more expensive craft than yours and lose all your money.) Just keep clicking on 'Buy' and watch as those credits roll up. Cheat: When you engage in battle. Pause the game. Go to the external view and switch on object identification. That makes enemy ships easier to target. Now move the view until you spot the enemy. Click on the spaceship to target it then turn on the auto pilot and return to forward view. Now when you unpause the game you fly straight at the targeted vessel. Get ready to do some damage and if the enemy ship shoots at you - launch a missile to set it running and shoot it in the tail.
