I'm looking for some quick cash.  I remember there being an incredibly rich ruby world somewhere in Ilwrath space, can anyone point me towards more ruby worlds?

The homeworld is outside of their shere of influence. (weird, I know) You can ask a illwrath for a exact location. It is one of the tauri's I think. (not sure but around there) It will be the only one with illwrath ships in it that is outside their shere of influence.

Sweet.  That's right, their sphere of influence is away from their homeworld because they wanted to kill some Pkunk.

Alpha Centauri has a couple of ruby worlds, one of the Kruegers (or in that vicinity) has a sapphire world.

Of course, the biggest way to RU is by buying fuel from the Melnorme or the Druuge and selling it back at the base...remember though quantity always pays with both of those races.

Of course I should point out that one shouldn't limit themselves to ruby worlds...once you can do it go to Orz space and mine all their stars (it'll take 5 cargo bays to hold it all, but it'll be worth it)...plenty of radioactives, plenty of precious metals, and yes one sapphire world in to boot.

Yeah Orz worlds is where I go early in the game to get materials.  Thanks for the tips I got plenty of tzo crystals in Ilwrath space!

Money quickly? Hmmm.... Oh yea! Don't go into starbase and go right to do the Slylandro Task. Now every day a slylandro will come and will be destroyed by the "destruction code".  Grin

DJ first off that doesn't grant u any RU's I'm uncertain if  it did in the origianl I'm pretty sure it did(to lazy to check.  If u know how to pilot a spathi eluder take Fwiffo's starrunner into Vux space ur ship is more thana match and can usually take out the cpu without taking a scratch.

Be warned: This hint is filled with SPOILERS!

You could try exploiting the Druuge by agreeing to trade one of the items they want from you for full fuel tanks, but show up there with 16 Hi-Effs. You'll lose an item, but what the heck?

I think you can trade them the Burvixese Caster for that actually...It's not like you can't get another Caster, right?

Aparently you do get RU for using the code, it just doesn't tell you.  I think Nic made a patch fo thiis.

In the PC version you did get RUs for causing probes to self-destruct.
I'm pretty sure this was carried over into UQM. Though to be honest, I never got the code in UQM.

Terminator, I don't remember you were here when I finished the game without going in starbase... so.... I got like 100000 RU in the end because of those Probes who kept swarming me.

Greetings Smiley

I've been making a list of useful worlds to visit.

Beta Lyrae V -  Ruby
Beta Lyrae III C - Metal
Gamma Centauri I - Ultraviolet - Very Rich
Beta Centauri I C - Radioactive
Beta Centauri III C - Metal
Epsilon Centauri I - Halide
Zeta Centauri I C - Ultramarine
Beta Lalande II - Ultraviolet
Zeta Vulpeculae VII - Treasure
Zeta Vulpeculae VI - Radioactive
Zeta Vulpeculae IV - Treasure
Zeta Vulpeculae III A - Treasure
Zeta Vulpeculae V C, D - Treasure, Auric
Delta Vulpeculae III - Treasure
Delta Vulpeculae II C - Treasure
Beta Circini VIII - Radioactive
Beta Circini III - Sapphire
Beta Chandresekhar II - Emerald

This list will be updated as I continue on my 15th replay. I also urge you that if you visit any of these worlds, that you bring MANY cargo bays, especially the vulpeculae region.

Dont mine Alpha Centauri until you've got hotspot tech from the melnorme, you will lose a lot of crew or a lot of landers, and in the early game the risk is not worth the potential gain.

Hope this helps Smiley
