Re: Fuel Scooping

Hello, maybe totally useless rant, or inspiration: In Elite II:Frontier (and IMHO also in Elite III: First Encounters), there was totally different mechanism in effect - normal space physic: there was Hydrogen Fuel (=civilian) as tradeable item like say food it could be traded or Fuel Scooped from s...
