Description Edit | History

Dodging battlecruisers, escaping space monsters, and blasting bounty hunters are all in a days work for you, as captain of your own space freighter. Trade goods on the space lanes, work for crime lords, or engage in your own piracy - the big bucks are for those who can smuggle past orbital customs stations.

Use your credits to upgrade your space freighter and find other special equipment. Freedom of movement and diversity of choice don't keep Smugglers of the Galaxy from being a simple and easy play.

Some of the many options for players include: Space Trading, Smuggling, Piracy, Bounty Hunting, and Starship Upgrades.

SPACE TRADING
Every planet has different demands for Food, Robots, Weapons, Luxuries, and Medical Supplies. Buy low on one world and sell high on another. Expand your ship’s cargo capacity and upgrade your Lightspeed to make credits quick - but watch out for pirates on the space lanes.

SMUGGLING
Some goods are illegal on some worlds - but that means big bucks to those who can smuggle them past customs! Larger worlds generally have larger starports - which means better security but also better profits. Crime Bosses offer the biggest payoffs but you’ll regret it if you fail them. Find friends and technology that will help you smuggle because you don’t want to get caught with a shipload of illegal goods.

PIRACY
Become a space pirate yourself by arming your ship and blasting unsuspecting merchant ships (and other players) for their cargo. Be careful though - as your bounty stacks up, tougher bounty hunters will become interested in you.

BOUNTY HUNTING
So other players have bounties on their heads? Go after them and collect! But making powerful enemies in the galaxy may be your undoing. A good bounty hunter must know when and where to strike.

UPGRADE YOUR SPACESHIP
Whether peaceful merchant, shifty smuggler, or ruthless warrior - everyone could use a better ship. Upgrade your Lasers, Engines, Lightspeed, Shields, and Cargo Pods and keep your enemies off your back and increase your money-making potential. In addition to these standard upgrades, be on the lookout for unusual technology, such as cloaking devices, secret compartments, telepathic orbs, and more.
