Racially, Hutts cannot pilot freighters. Can I still indirectly control one/use it as a personal ship if I have it being flown by a pilot NPC or droid? Asked my faction leader and we believe this is how it was intended to work but we're unsure if the specifics to make it work have been implemented.
Yeah, NPC pilots and droid pilots cannot initiate travel currently. hopefully one day, maybe.
As a Hutt you will need a capital ship to fly yourself and those of course are expensive even for the crappy ones. Good cheap cap is YV-666 and goes for around 30 mil?
Your faction sells them but cant lend you one? Well, considering you are a Hutt, if they ever want you to go anywhere theyre kinda going to need to let you use one.
Also I hear stealing can get you ships faster. Can also get you dead faster too.
Or find a faction that pays 2m+ a month AND lets you run around in a Cap. There are options out there even for Hutts.
Appropriate ship assignment should be a standard "benefit" of faction membership. You are not a drain on your faction to be provided with transport appropriate to your race and tasks you are performing.
At least in the opinion of this faction leader/owner.
