My tip is that for the first colony you make, do it on a planet with 100 or less hazard that can produce food.

My 225 hazard planet was still pulling in a profit even with hazard pay on, so not sure what problem you are having there.

I used to make nice with the pirates because of getting tired of whack-a-mole with how fast new bases popped up. That situation has been somewhat addressed in 0.95a from what I can tell, don't get bothered anywhere near as much.

The issue I found with being non-hostile to the pirates was that they could still raid your system, but your patrols wouldn't fight them. Sure, they'll leave you alone, but those merchant convoys coming for a visit? Not so much, and now your patrols won't help them.

Economic disruption seems to be more prevalent now in 0.95, so I'm wondering about that trade-off, and be curious to hear anyone's experiences.

Is there a way to create a stable location, if a system has none?

Yes, have an Alpha Core in your inventory and emergency burn into the star to click on it.

Very intuitive, I know.

Wow, you weren't kidding. I feel like such a fool now. What an obvious game mechanic.
