I’ve been mucking around with Distribution for a few days now. There are a few things I found out, and then a few things I’ve read. So I’m not sure what’s completely true and whats not.
Firstly. Level 1 Distribution Missions are not all courier missions, they resemble the tutorial missions, sometimes you have to ferry something, sometimes you have to kill something, sometimes you have to approach a location and wait. Something useful to know and prepare for. Sometimes you will recieve a Civilian Data Analyser for use in a mission. I was able to do all lvl 1 missions in an Imicus.
Secondly. Distribution Missions will take you within the constellation at Lvl 1 and 2, so it’s helpful to find a small constellation to do them from to minimize the number of jumps. At Lvl 3 and Lvl 4 they will usually take you outside of the constellation, so also try to find a constellation that is both small and has few connections to other constellations, otherwise you find yourself endlessly backtracking.
So there are 4 things you want out of a constellation. A high number of faction or corp distribution agents, small constellation size, minimal constellation connections, and finally an LP store that sells the things you want.
Thirdly is things I’ve heard but not sure if they are true or not. Agent and or Corp standing increases rewards from Missions. Another thing I’ve heard is, if you decline a mission, it will be less likely to be offered by that agent in the future.
Does anyone know if those things are true?
And Lastly the cargo hold size you will need for each type of mission I think this is still current, but I’m not sure.
Lvl 1 = 350m3
Lvl2 = 450m3?
Lvl3 = 4200m3?
Lvl4 = 7600m3?
