Money for nothing and chicks for free

Postby Jaws » Wed Mar 30, 2005 6:27 pm

Andrew there is a bug in STUN.

In the game I'm playing right now if I queue up a gunboat in Aries III and then remove it right away my money total will increase by $1180.00. Do it again, add it then remove it, and your total money will increase again by $1180.00.

I start with $2796.00 then it goes to $3984.00. Do it again and you get $5172.00. And so on.

I'll email the saved game file.

Thanks
Jaws

This is an exploit. Some users know about it some don't. I find this much more effecient than typing coin in the cheat menu because its much more lucrative. I've had 50 colonies all with colony ships Q'ed to 6. Every time I would remove one and re-add you could get almost a million dollars for free. :shock: 8)

I think it was Choam that discovered that it was due to Players having Nano tech or even better Replicators. When you buy and item you get it for the discouted price due to nano tech or replicators. However, when you sell them back you get the price they would be with out the discount. You pretty much get the 15-30% of the ships cost on top of the cash you spent.

Andrew has said he has no plans to close this exploit up as of yet. I don't care either way. If you want to cheat then do it if not then don't.

Thanks Insayn, I never knew about it.
