I'm a pretty new player, and so far I've done the basic tutorial, the industry tutorial missions, and some of the exploration tutorial missions. Obviously I've focused on the non-combat side of the game, including skills.
However, when I went through several nearby systems, I wasn't able to find a single mission that didn't involve combat with pirates. I expected to find some 'build thing X' or 'deliver thing Y', like in the tutorial missions.
Should I just start gearing up a combat ship, or are there lots of these crafting/delivery/etc missions out there and I'm just unlucky or looking in the wrong places?
