In the X-Universe your skill and relation to races is measured in ranks.   Player ranks have effects on the game difficulty and the magnitude of monetary rewards for missions.

Player Ranks

Fight Rank

Increased by killing stuff.   Each Ship class has a value of points given if killed In general the bigger and tougher the ship killed is the more points towards this rank you get.   Ships killed by player owned ships out of sector give a reduced number of points.   Affects the rate and number of NPC ships spawned as well as the amount of equipment and owned ships belonging to patrols and carriers.   Affects the ships spawned for combat missions in combination with the class of player piloted ship and player owned ships in sector.   Keeping this ranking low makes the boarding of some capital ships easier (eg. Valhalla).   The second to final mission of the Shady Business plot requires the destruction of a total of 50 capital ships which will give a high fight rank if done by a player piloted ship.   If SETA is left on without player input for long periods the player Fight Rank will drop 2% every game hour (6 minutes on 1000% SETA).











Warrior (large boost to spawn rate of NPC ships)(Xenon start frequent attacks from Xenon Sector 472)


Master Chief

Fighter Chief (corvettes start to spawn for combat missions and for pirate patrols) 



Professional (starts the Operation Loose Ends plot missions)

Eagle Eye




Fighter (lowest rank idle SETA exploitation will drop to)









Harmless (single M5 spawns as an opponent for combat missions)(Xenon activity???)

Trade Rank

Increased by buying and selling wares and stocks at values favourable in comparison to the average.   Credits earned from missions do not count to this rank.   The sale of wares at equipment docks and trading stations do not count (even if highly profitable) as the sales price is always average.   The rank increases on the number of transactions and the magnitude of difference from the average price and not the profit or total credits made.   This means buying and selling energy cells one at a time from cheap to expensive sources is a good way to boost this rank early on.   This rank affects the amount of credits offered by missions and what ship classes can be found by return ship/return abandoned ship/return stolen ship missions.   If SETA is left on without player input for long periods the player Trade Rank will drop 0.25% every game hour (6 minutes on 1000% SETA).

Race Ranks

The race rank you have represents how much the faction loves or hates you and affects the prices at which they are willing to sell/buy ships, if you are allowed to purchase certain factories and ships, which stations you can dock at or if they want to shoot you out of the sky.   Race ranks go from -5 to +10 and is based on a point system dependent on trade, missions and kills.   The higher the class of ship killed the larger the influence it has on Race Rank.

+10: 333,333-1,000,000 points (only able to be increased over 16-21% by killing enemies of the race)(you might be able to board an M1/M2+ without them wanting your blood if it is >30%)

+9: 100,000-333,332 (can purchase M2 destroyers)

+8: 33,333-99,999 (can purchase M1 carriers)

+7: 10,000-33,332 (can purchase M7/M7M/M7C frigates)

+6: 3,333-99,999 (can purchase M6+ heavy corvettes)

+5: 1,000- 3,332 (can purchase police licence, M6 corvettes, M3+ heavy fighters and TLs) 

+4: 333-999 (can purchase M3 fighters and M4+ heavy interceptors)

+3: 100-332 (can purchase TS small transports, M4 interceptors and M5 scouts)

+2: 33-99

+1: 10-32

0: -10-9 (can dock at all race owned stations)

-1: -100-(-11) (can only dock in border sectors)

-2: -1,000-(-101) (not allowed to dock at any station owned by the race and entering core sectors will cause a fighter squad to spawn and pursue the player)(core sector stations and border sector trading stations will appear hostile)(player owned ships attacking hostile stations will trigger Rapid Response ships counter attacking)

-3: -10,000-(-1,001) (the race will attack all the player's property with great prejudice within their territory)

-4: -100,000-(-10,001) (the race will send rapid response ships to hunt you in any sector belonging to them that you enter and use any combat competent ship to attack all player ships in any sector)

-5: -1,000,000-(-100,001) (reputation gained by missions will not affect the rank and only the blood of enemies of the race can dig the player out of this hole)
