I kind of liked the old fishing system better, even though it was stolen.
It was entertaining.
I agree with you about ship repairs. Do you think it would be better to pay out within a fixed range (i.e. 9 gralats through 15 gralats), or keep it set at one fixed price?
Usually when I need money, I go to ship repairs, trash, or missions (for graalium). I never even consider doing Dave's Deliveries.
