I'm getting 100% control of a planet and have a pirate base built. I put a basic starbase in orbit with a commerce center, some weapons etc.. to maintain superiority of the planet space.

When I do so, I seem to be seeing a sharp decline, or perhaps total stopping, of smuggling missions that come out of these systems. The only new smuggling contracts that come up are for new systems I stumble on. Or perhaps does this type of control grind the wheels of commerce to such a halt that those planets simply don't need resources anymore.

Does this seem like something you guys have experienced?

Thanks.

Just the opposite, actually. I get almost all my smuggling and defense missions from planets that I have established orbital control over. It's a heck of a lot easier, too. Of course only Independents offer the defense missions, but once you've got a well-armed space port in orbit those are an automatic win. In contrast, it's controlled Empire worlds that I've parked a defense base over that spawn the most smuggling missions; which makes perfect sense considering that I'm blowing up every freighter that tries to land there except for mine. Resource starvation doesn't take long after that, and they end up having no choice but to buy everything they need from the very people who are oppressing them.

In short, I play my pirates like the most evil, despicable, souless group of vile marauders in human history: Halliburton.

Hmm. First thanks much for the response. I've loved all your posts.

I've parked a defense base over empire or independent planets and while they may shoot down ships from a competing pirate faction, they don't seem to shoot any independent freighters coming in. How can I put the squeeze to them like you are? Is there a setting to make sure they shoot down every incoming ship except my own?

Thanks
