I'm not sure, but I believe this was the DOS version cheat, where one could sell their last lander and (due to a bug that does not like zero landers) obtain a ridiculous amount of RU.

I prefer the Druuge fueler trick myself, if for no other reason than to tick off the Druuge.

This works in the original DOS release only, of course.

When in the module construction screen with at least one lander, sell all your landers. Then sell one more. Not only will your account be credited for the lander you didn't sell, the game will also get indigestion from integer wraparound, and give you 255 landers free of charge. Guess what you can do with all those landers? That's right, sell them all for even more RU. And when you hit 0 landers again, simply sell one more, and the process repeats.

This glitch not only allowed you to get unlimited RU, but it also allowed you to have, effectively, an infinite supply of landers at all times.

Yea, I got that version before this one and it is really annoying when you are trying to play the game fair way. Basicly, you coudn't get 0 landers because their number would increase when you sold them. So, after you hit zero (or when you should have hit zero), number of landers would decrease after buying a new one. When using this cheat, I had sooooo many landers, they got to name of my flagship.
