Elite: Dangerous [cheats]
* Take note of the economy of every space station you encounter. Each colony specializes in a particular commodity, and will buy specific cargo at higher prices. Purchase extracargo at stations where the commodity is cheaper, then travel to stations where that product is in higher demand.
* Enter a Low-Intensity Combat Zone and scan it for NPCs that are wanted or from an enemy faction, all while avoiding other players. Destroy lone ships to earn money.
* Search for discarded containers, especially those that contain gold that can be sold on the Blackmarket.
