So what do you do when a carrier pigeon flies in from Half Hitch that they are fresh out of clean nappies?  Ana to the rescue!

Backing out of Dutch Harbor in the dark is scary!

On our way, i would have posted more pictures of the actual run, but they all look like this one -_-

Very nice :)

 

I am planning to try this game. 

 

Are you planning to be able to see the load once loaded in the boat (at least for your boats?). Would be very nice to see the load appearing :) Can wait to see my IF loaded and running a delivery !

the GTFO api does this, on the Mary Celeste and Dixie Belle you can already see that working, but you can link barrels and crates to any boat, as long as you name them properly they will be shown/hidden by GTFO upon loading or unloading :)

Oh. This is why i was asking. On your picture i could see the barrels. When Serena showed me the feature i couldn't see them.

So if i understand correctly i need to modify the boat, links the barrels or create and the system will hide/show the crate

your IF yes, for Dixie Belle and Mary Celeste thats not needed, they have all the GTFO stuff working out of the box, including the loading/unloading of cargo,

Sacrilege! Imagine suggesting you'd use the little Lady IF to haul ugly old freight  :angry:

Been smuggling with the IF since her release.  Also have a Madpea out there with gold bullion stashed on board.  

 

Occasionally I'm asked what is the most expensive item I've been hired to smuggle or the most difficult.  The answer to both questions is the same, liquid mesh.  

 

Liquid mesh is very expensive so a natural cargo for smugglers with a ready market of creators who want to avoid the Governor's tax on a material that is already expensive.  The problem is it being a liquid so where barrels will work a tanker of some sort would be best.  Liquid mesh is also heavy so only small quantities can be moved at a time.  In spite of these limitations it remains a profitable cargo for smugglers because if its expense.

 

A scientist in Gaeta V has invented a way to turn it into a powder and then reconstitute it back into a liquid but at this time that process is also very costly in materials needed and the size of the processing plants on both sides require a large investment in land.  Perhaps the technology will advance and the process become more economical to use.  Ideally the powder could be formed into something not resembling powder making detection by the SLCG more difficult.

A bit bored Justin?  ;)

 

Mind you, I'm wondering if this liquid mesh is still in it's original 'crude' form or if it has been refined into something closer to a marketable product. I'm mean, there's bound to be less profit in the crude since it is going to have to be refined, worked on, developed, proofed, modified, market tested...........

Liquid mesh is liquid mesh, a manufactured product not a product that is the result of a refining process like petroleum products.  I don't know the process or the raw materials involved, I just get paid for getting it past the Coasties and of course those thieving pirates. ;)

Analyse just convinced me to buy the Mary Celeste.  No muss, no fuss.

I'm liking GTFO! But getting into Half Hitch in my Mary Celeste is much easier than getting out!   ;)

The Celeste is what I'd call a "Pro Tier" vessel. You can put it in reverse at least.

I saw that as i approached and opted to back it in.....a bit dicey at first but once you remember to steer backwards backwards you're in. Now my only problem is how stupidly addictive this is going to be....
