Distress Calls can be found in supercruise in most inhabited star systems. These locations spawn a variety of NPCs that can be undergoing a number of events. Some examples of the events are;
- A Ship without fuel.
- A Ship under attack from waves of pirates.
- Wreckage from a destroyed ship, this can have a second ship investigating.
How to re-fuel a ship:
- Install "Fuel Transfer Limpet Controller" in Outfitting
- Buy few "Fuel Transfer Limpets" in "Advanced Maintenance | Restock" (they take cargo space).
- Setup a fire group for the Controller.
- Target a ship and press fire button, which you set up for the Controller.
1t of fuel can be enough for a ship to jump to the nearest system with re-fuel service.
