You can clear your Crime Stat at Security Post Kareah, a space station in orbit around Cellin, a moon of Crusader. You can locate it in the mobiGlas.
Do You Have a Hacking Chip?
Before you can attempt to clear your crime state, you will need to buy a hacking chip at Grim Hex. You can use it to bypass the security lock in the Crime Stat terminal to log in.
Kareah’s Landing Pads
The landing pads are located just below the paired rings on the left and above the square-shaped bulkheads. As shown in the screenshot, the landing pads are edge-on and the landing surfaces are facing upward to the inner ring.
Landing at Kareah
You don’t have to ask for a landing pad over the comms link. Approach the pads with your landing gear down and one of them may display a landing hologram for you. This feature has been switched on and off over time, but you can still auto-land using N even when there are no landing holograms around the pad.
If you are trying to clear your Crime Stat, it’s probably better to follow any landing directions you are given to ensure that the Crime Stat console works correctly later on. I had to visit the station several times in order to interact with the console. Usually, it failed to respond but maybe that mechanism has been changed now.
When you get inside the station you will find three levels surrounding a central space containing consoles on a raised platform. The main console in the prime position is the Crime Stat console.
Meet the Security Guard
The first time I visited was simply to take a look around. I eventually stumbled upon an AI character who shot me after thinking about it for a long while. I found out later that he is there to provide a bit of NPC shooting action. Some people use him for target practice, so if you are intent on killing him, his slow response time means you’ll have plenty of time to fumble around with your keys etc. I still managed to get shot right after this screenshot.
Again, these features have altered over time, so it’s hard to say if you will meet an NPC security guard. You are likely to meet a hostile player though.
Clear Your Crime Stat
Sometime after my first visit, I acquired a Crime Stat rating by accident. I knew that I had a rating because outposts with automatic gun open fire on me when I approach. However, your crime stat is listed on the home page of your mobiGlass, so you can check it at any time.
Before you can log in you will need to bypass the security lock with a hacking chip that you can find at Grim Hex. Load your chip into the appropriate slot near the console and log in.
For reasons unknown, I was unable to log in. After a few more visits on different days, I was suddenly able to log in, but I have no idea what had changed.
When you log in, all you will have to do is wait until your crimes are erased as shown by a rotating onscreen graphic. This could take several minutes. I managed to clear my security status although it wasn’t clear when that had completed. I had to check my Crime Stat in the mobiGlas to confirm that all was well.
Look Out for Hostiles
During the multiple failed visits I had made to Kareah to clear my crime stat, I wondered if I was supposed to kill the NPC security guard in order to unlock the console. After some scenic posing in the corridors with a pistol, I came back to find a couple of human players with machine guns near the console I needed.
While I was figuring out what to do about that, he and his buddy filled me full of lead for a good 10 seconds.
