(space for missing workarounds)
Totally forgot a few big ones:
Claim Jumper Mission is broken:
after accepting the claim jumper misson, check the starmap to see how many markers you have for it. If there are 2 green diamond markers right next to each other, that means the mission is bugged and should be untracked then abandoned.
Mission Names Stuck on Screen:
If you are tracking a mission when you abandon it, that mission has a chance of remaining stuck on your screen. Make sure to untrack the mission before abandoning it. Super useful if you’re accepting and checking Claim Jumper missions. If you still find it to be a problem, you can track a separate mission before abandoning it.
Most ramps (and some doors; cutlass side doors, Hammerhead docking collar) on ships can be broken open via damage. If you shoot the back ramp of an Avenger, Cutlass, Freelancer, etc., after enough damage it will open up allowing you to EVA inside the small opening. For reference it takes roughly a mag and a half from an F55 LMG to open up those doors. They can also be shot open with ship weapons. Ships with direct access to canopy can not be opened this way (such as the gladius, eclipse, to name a few).
Doing so will also break that door. Sometimes this can be overridden by closing and opening exterior from the pilot seat. Try to cycle it a few times and it might fix the broken door. Also don’t forget to unlock your newly commandeered ship.
Not Losing Cargo:
When carrying cargo, don’t use cruise control while flying towards a planet. In the event of a crash, your ship will continue flying and may explode
Stealing AI ships:
Some AI ships may still be boarded without needing to break open their doors. If you find an AI cutlass hanging out during the 890 Jump mission, you can enter through the unlocked side doors and kill the pilot for Call to Arms UEC. Self Destructing that ship will grant you a crime stat and fail Call to Arms before granting you any money from killed onboard (such as in the turret).

Claim jumpers should be fixed in the next 3.8 patch
