With the new economic system and new (higher) prices for freighters, I have waited until now to search for an excellent freighter.
From what I have seen:
- general freighters parked in a system only go up to 19 slots and possibly A class.
- a larger freighter can be purchased if you help defend it from pirate attack. The best I saw doing this was a 38 slot S class (which sadly I didn’t have the 405 million units for it at the time of discovery.)
- The wealth of a system does not seem to be a factor.
Are my observations in line with what others have seen?
Are there better ways of finding really good freighters?
