First off, a bit about myself.
I used to play EVC on the old family mac, it had slowdown at times and I never registered (I was just a kid back then), but it made me a lifelong Ambrosia SW fan. Then EVN came along for mac and my parents got it for me as a gift, it was like the EV of my childhood, except shinier, more complex and new. I showed it to friends and made several more fans who bought it as well. (Sorry for not registering the first one, but I hope I made up for it with the new fans I brought in as well as the EV)
I played the hell out of it and eventually tried out the EVC plug in, but was still too entranced with the new to bother with the old game of my youth.
Years later I moved out and the (newer) family mac stayed with the family (the old one with EVC on it died).
Recently I rediscovered EVN (Well, I never really forgot it, but I have not been playing it)(it was on a PC I bought used from a friend) and have been playing it. I tried out the EVC port and it was utter nostalgia and I forgot how good this game was.
Sorry for the rant, my questions are:
What are all the side missions out there? (I remember a handful and I mean the ones with something more than kill some pirates or smuggle)(Like the artemis group, shipping, eco-rescue)
How do I best equip my kestrel? (I know a corvette is faster in the end, but I do love my kestrel and it has some good perks going for it)
On mine I equipped it as seen in the pic I attached (ignore the particle beam and 2 hawks though, I was just playing around there)
I heard you can get all 3 secret gov techs on one ship, how do you do this?
Does anyone else like the redone decoy launcher?
Which ships are fun to play around with?
Proton VS Laser VS Neutron?
Missile VS Torpedo VS Javelin VS Heavy Rocket VS Space Bomb? (I normally buy one javelin pod to steal any javelins from ships, plus it is decent when you need a good OOMPH in your attack, but don't want to blow the credits on a full missile)
Any other good weapons that are must haves?
Any good trade routes? (I was a bit too lazy to map out some of the routes I did like when I was young, so I just capture 6 argosies and just traveled around, delivering freight, buying a 100-200+ tons of what is low, selling it for a profit wherever I could. Which is not really practical with an paid escort trading fleet but sure is fun with a captured one)
Anything really worth doing/relieving?
