I took a mission "Deliver Holographics to Nitir". Arrived in the Nitir system the mission computer said "Meet with Drayman 0". I could select the Drayman with the "N" key like a planet, it was sorrounded by a grey rectangle. But how can I land on a Drayman?

When I land on the only base in the system, the mission is not finished and the 10 Holographics stay in my manifest.

When I repeat the flight from a savepoint, the error occurs every time, sometimes it's "Meet with Drayman 0" and sometimes "Meet with Paradigm 0".

    The same error happend with two other missions before, one was "Deliver plastics to Rikel". I could solve this by firing at the drayman until the rectangle changed from grey to red. Then the plastics dissappeared after the next landing and the mission was finished. With the new occurency this trick did not work.

     
  • Fly Close to the Drayman, the cargo will disappear, and the money will be credited.

    Thanks for the tip, it works. However, I had to get VERY close to a Paradigm. Of course, I tried getting close before but I as this variation of cargo missons was surprising for me had not expected I had to go SO close.

    Suggestion:
    a) Put a hint into the description of the mission screen "Meet with Drayman 0 and go close to it"
    b) Reduce the necessary closeness
    c) Put an option into the communication dialog "Here's your staff, fellow, have a good one"
    d) Add an on screen confirmation "Goods have been duly received, the amound will be automatically deducted to your account."
