Does market stability affect which ships are for sale?
« on: May 06, 2017, 04:17:08 PM »

I ask because I really need nice capital ship to purchase, but I wonder if all my black market trading has hosed the market and made it no longer available.  Or is there no connection?

To answer your specific question, I  don't know.

That said, if you want easy access to the highest end ships you'll have to take a commission with someone  to open up their military market. Even a relatively low stability market that you have full military access to will offer high end ships for sale, including capitals. Otherwise, it's all just down to luck (sometimes black markets have certain caps for sale, but not at the frequency of military markets) and some ships are easier to salvage than to buy.

Fair nuff.  I'm at cooperative with Diable Avionics, I just need to keep rolling the dice to get that Dreadnought.  I saw it in the market much earlier in my campaign, will just keep checking.

Random note on this, you can get buddy with the independents and they have some military worlds with some good capitals.  Got my Astral from them, so they really do seem like a viable option.

Independents now got 2 military markets Nortia and Baethis. Seen Paragon for sale at Nortia this patch. Baethis mostly receive Onslaughts and low-tech stuff - i blame nearby Luddite planets.

I have seen Baetis sell an Astral before.
