I don't think so. Should I stop wearing a badge?

Do you bump on people on the streets and they offer you to sell drugs? I think that doesn't happen that often.

Oh it happens. Maybe not to you. Do you look like a cop?

(You mean hunters...)

But I haven't known a privateer who ONLY did merchant or ONLY merc, and what category would be for fixers?

Maybe the other privateers are alll pirates, merc or merchants?

Your not very thorough... I'm still alive (lol)

But seriously CK: Why do we never see other privateers? We only hear of them. Maybe a new faction... Flying the same ships as us...

I killed all the competition so I could get all the fixers.

I agree too... It seems like you are the only privateer in the game...

I think Pellaeon's idea of balance is just about perfect.

I wasn't really thinking that fixers should be taken out to the street. They wait in the bar, as there is the biggest chance to bump into a privateer. However, I thought that some (1 or 2) of these people should be random privateers walking around. I guess trade between two privateers are not forbidden. :)

I don't think fixers in the street is really that interesting, it looks a bit strange. Do you bump on people on the streets and they offer you to sell drugs? I think that doesn't happen that often.
Maybe if those walking fixers where in seedy places, but as it is it looks more natural.
I believe the use of the walking people is to make your life hell when you want to deliver a message to someone in New Beijing.

But maybe some of then could be muggers and would try to "help" you with your goods if you get alone in a dark place.

So basically, take the fixers out to the street?

That's a great idea! :) It certainly would add a lot... maybe there could even be a reputation factor for them, just like fixers. The more reputation the player has, the more people want to talk business. And high-paying offers shouldn't be available until somebody has a good reputation.

I just had an idea that might be interesting to see in AS.

All the people walking around the base basicially send me to hell. One gently, the other more coldly.

This one might be tricky, but I think some of these people should make you an offer - like "I have x units of contraband stashed away, but I'm too afraid to sell it publicly, and the stock exchange doesn't accept it, so I think a privateer like you should be interested in it, I'm selling it at an awesome # cut-rate price per units."

or: "I have a damaged gun/scoop/other ship part for sale, I'm selling it for # credits." (In this idea, the part should be cheaper than a new one, but having it repair shouldn't make you clear profit.)

Maybe someone selling damaged body armor?

Or maybe it could go vice-versa. "I need slaves (or maybe non-contraband?) desperately, and I'm paying more per units than the stock exchange does. I only need x units maximum. Do you happen to have some?"

Just a suggestion, but I think that random strolling people should have more function than being quest characters or mugging.
