Yeah, it's very different now to how it was back in the day. At launch, it was a similar setup to Frontier, where trade trips made you a bit of a profit but you had to take things like fuel costs into account. It took me a few weeks to get from my Sidewinder to an Adder, and then a couple of months of trading, smuggling and bounty hunting in my Adder to scrape enough together to get myself a Cobra. The massive inflation of profits and payouts over the years mean that you can now get into a Cobra after an hour or two, and for me that's taken a massive chunk of the game away.
