Legal status cleaning is possible?

Hi!I`m just used the energy bomb against 2 thargoids and horde of thargons... and one stupid python was here. Now my legal status is offender and I`m can`t clean it! I`m try to kill pirates and thargoids... Many, many pirates and thargoids! About 10 thargoids and about 20-30 pirates, But I`m still offender and can`t dock near normal planets and, also, i can`t save game :-( So I`m stuck near poor feudal planet without any chance to move forward :-( How to clean my legal status? How many pirates I must to kill or what I must to do in this situation?(sorry for my english, I`m from Ukraine)

Cleaning an offense

Hi,

yes, it's possible to clean the legal status. In the Amiga version (and in Alite), however, killing pirates won't get you there: The number of _hyperspace jumps_ is key. Technically, the legal status is represented as an integer value; offender is from 1 to 15 (if my memory is correct! Haven't checked just now). After each hyperjump, your legal status is reduced in half (in other words rating >> 1 is performed, a bitwise shift to the right by 1). So, if your rating value is 9, it will decrease to 4, after 1 jump, then to 2, 1, and 0. You'll need 4 jumps to become clean again.

Of course, you can always use an Escape Pod: You'll get a new ship and thus, you'll start with a new (clean) slate...

Hope that helps!

Cheers,

Philipp

Thanks! Will try to get fuel

Thanks! Will try to get fuel ftom star and jump. And yes.. it`s a very important info. One of the main game rules literally. IMHO, it must be in game tutorial and in the library.

Also...

One more thing: Remember that Vipers will not attack you, if you jump to more dubious systems (Anarchies, Feudals, etc.) -- unless you open fire on the station :)
