There is a bug with the Customoze Your Ship. And I suspect there may also be bugs related to any NPC seller.
The Customize Your Ship will tell you something is going to cost 'X' amount of credits, but WILL take five times that amount if you have that amount available to it. One character of mine was told a customization was going to cost 4080 credits and got billed for over 20,000. Another character was told it was going to cost 660 credits and was billed for over 3,000 credots.
So be careful using the Customizer, and don't expect to get your credits back from Cryptic over this one. They are gone, and its the system that is robbing you, not another player.
ya, i figured it was not another player...obviously. i found out what it was. the "free" NX tag with my pre-order that was not in fact free. so, it was a ship name change. i am really very ****ed off about this, as it was supposed to be 'free'.
there is another thread about this, and i got stung by this. thanks alot.
