After the Type-9, I still had an itch. I wanted something with even longer range than my AxpX. I looked at some Phantoms, but didn't want to spend the money just yet (but I will soon) but I decided I'd get a cheap DBX. I upgraded it for jump, and got up to about 65 LY, which isn't a ton better than the AxpX at 58 LY, but it gets me about 7 more LY.
Other than that, I've just been mining, trying to grind out Trade Elite (up to about 1/2 billion credits now) and also Selene Jean (420 of 500 tons done). I looked at some other ship builds, the Krait Mk2 for combat, the Viper for ultimate boost speed (just for fun, cause I'm crazy). Someday I'll get them, but in the meantime, I've gotta get more materials... sigh... I'll probably buy them soon, but not engineer them until I finish gathering the materials.
After I get to Trade Elite, it'll be time to climb combat a bit. That will definitely eat into my trade money, cause I'm sure I'll be paying out the insurance... a lot... but what fun
