Post How to make money through favors and begging
If you are hopeless at making money for whatever reasons this guide will help you get some quick cash. DO NOT depend on it for making large amounts of credits. This guide is aimed at people below level 50 who have no applicable skills they can use to make money.

Favors
Before you go around granting favors expect that you will not get rewarded often. Fortunately, the gratitude of helping people should be enough (if it isn't enough, I recommend that you do some hard thinking)

Tools that you will need for favors
    Ship (any but a fast one is recommended)
    Engine
    Shield (reasonably large bank with high regen)
    Shield Transference weapon
    A scoop
    Radar
    Sincerity (IMPORTANT)
Directions
To grant favors and the like fly around and go upon your business and be ready to help people in need. For example you could happen across a person who is in stasis. Offer them help and heal them with your transference weapon. If their items are lying around, scoop them and offer to return them to the person (do the same for money). Expect no reward (As said above) and be polite about it. Also, keep an eye on all or trade chat to see if anyone needs an item of some sort. Pm them and offer assistance getting what they need. If they are paying for the said item accept it graciously and don't seem smug about taking their money for something you can easily obtain.

Begging

Tools for begging
[*]Same as above tools for favors except no transference

Directions
when your begging there are several guidelines to go with (works great after you have done people favors in the past and they remember your name)
    DO NOT CONSTANTLY ANNOY PEOPLE FOR MONEY
    Do not use any leet when your talking (ex. can i haf your m0nies??)
    try to be sincere as possible
    accept whats offered, DO NOT demand more after someone was already nice enough to give you money
    Don't overdo it
Also recommended
    Join a team (People who are on the same team feel more obliged to help people who are new.)
    Direct it at a single person and use their full username (this isn't really fair but, when directed at a person directly they will (usually) feel embarrassed and in a corner to provide you with something.
Final notes
only use begging and favors as an alternate way to earn enough money for setting up a way to earn money. You may pm me ingame for 20k and
an ion peashooter for free (username: empathy). I will not be checking back to this much so ridicule all you want.

Being polite without expecting a reward is good, however, the time you spend begging could be invested in looking for a trade route, allowing you to earn millions of credits without pissing other peoples off

How about you teach noobs how to make money, instead of how to leach money? Making money in this game has exponentially become easier as time progresses.

Less than a year ago, you couldn't just sell everything to an AI base. The only thing you could sell to an AI base was stuff that you had bought from it.

Begging is worse, think about it. I'm sure if you kill someone there will be somebody out there very happy about it as you doing them a favor.
