I have three, probably simple questions, regarding fighter ships that i couldn't find an answer to on the forum thread.
The first question is regarding fighter ship types. Which fighter ship would be considered to be one of the better all around fighter ship with HS ability, good weapons and armor?
Second question is about getting a ship? Is it best to just purchase a ship or can you collect the materials needed for the ship and have it constructed? If so, how do you go about getting the ship constructed?
Third and final question is about buying them. Is the best way to get a ship through traders or is there a market where I can go to to get a ship?
For your second question, it depends. If you have a shipyard you can easily gain access to and have the materials around, then making it yourself may be easier. However for most people having it built for you by someone else is the main way to go.
For your thrid question, it all depends. Again. The main offsite market that is used is the Centerpoint Market (to view go to the Centerpoint Station website and follow the links there). However, there are ships for sale in the Commerce forum here. The NPC Market that is linked near the bottom of the sidebar very rarely has any ships for sale.
