I managed to fly myself there... and then I looked to see where I could buy the required stuff.

I think I flew past about 3 systems that I should have stopped at. Looks like closest system is about 35ly away that has any of the required supplies.

Yeah, according to EDDB, I found that its anywhere between 30-50LY for pretty much anything required from Chamas. Did a few runs in my Type-9 yesterday (which for the duration of the community goal, transferred to Denton Dock so then I can fly a smaller ship there, then switch to the "brick" for the deliveries, collecting about 740 tons each run), but I'm planning on doing more since I was in the Top 10%, but fell back to the Top 25% (currently at 5,108 total delivered), and it's still only at Tier 2, so the numbers will more than likely keep going up, necessitating the need to complete more trips if I want to be in the higher bracket for the higher credit reward.

 

For Grain and Fruit & Vegetables, I went to Cooper Station in Salibala (44.84LY)

For Fish, I went to Wakata Port in Indras (44.99LY)

For Synthetic Meat, I went to Melvin Terminal in Asturindjin (43.03LY)

I did 2 trips (1 with my Type 6... which I then sold and bought an Asp Explorer for the second trip)

So now I have delivered 200 synthetic meats from Ngandins (? or something similar)

Gets me into the lowest tier only. Need to make a push to get myself into the next tier.

Nice. I went back in the other day and got myself to 10,360, moving me back to the Top 10%... for now. Though Top 10 CMDR's is more than approx. 39k total to achieve that. And with it being at tier 4/8 with just over a day left, hopefully the numbers don't jump much higher, but if I had to, I'll get a few more runs if there's time left.

 

The Community Goals section on Inara usually has the estimated numbers required for each bracket, which is useful for getting a general idea of how much you'll need to deliver for each tier.

So I should get back to core mining until I get a few billion credits? Have they said how much they will cost and to outfit?

 

They look amazing. I didn't know there was "smaller" ones, like the mining and mercenary.

They've only said "large amount of credits". Considering that it's a personal ship (one per CMDR) rather than a squadron/group ship, and the Imperial Cutter is around 208 million (currently the most expensive ship in the game), I would definitely think the cost will be in the billions for sure. They have said that after the September update, they'll go into more detail on the financial side of things.

 

And the support ships are separate, and accompanies the carrier, which can be swapped out for specific operations. They'll determine what is available in ship outfitting, as well as services. So with the mining support vessel for example, it would be cool if it included a commodities market, so you could park in a system, mine nearby rings, head back to the carrier, sell what you mined, rinse and repeat.
