The title says it, really.
I’m moving into the meaty part of a new game. I’ve built my farm, and made some money. Now I’m off across the universe in my big, expensive, freighter.
Except, I find I can’t recruit trader frigates. Here’s a picture:
This is a trader frigate. You can see in the picture it is showing the “recruitable frigate” sign. But it won’t talk to me. Over the last few hours I’ve been to dozens of systems, and seen hundreds of trader frigates. None of them will talk to me. I can recruit all the others - exploration, combat, support, industrial, - no problem. But I can’t talk to the traders.
