Download Cheatengine and search for a 4 Byte adress with the value of you scraps. Spend some money or win some scraps, then search for the new amount. When there are only 2 adresses left, edit either one of them to get as much scraps as you like.

To get a better start, you can edit the data.dat in the resources folder of your game directory. At first, backup the data.dat file, then search for <weaponBlueprint name="MISSILES_2_PLAYER"> and edit the weapon. Give it a damage of 4, as well as fireChance and breachChance of 3. You can then search for "Kestrel" and enhance your starting ship. If you overdo it, the game will crash at the beginning. Then simply change back your edits or load the backup. Have fun!

when you start look for a few battles to build up as much scrap as possible. when your at about 150-160 scrap upgrade your shields 2 times and upgrade your power 3 times. during the battles try to target the enemys weapons and sheilds(if their sheilds are too powerful focus them and try to get them to abbout one sheild level focus their weapons). when in engi space look out for two things. first is fake fugitive rescues 1/3 times the ship that's chasing the fugitives is full of mantis. the other thing is distress beacons from deseased stations if you dont have a lvl 2 med bay or a engi crew member just walk away youl loose one of your crew if you try to wend all of your crew down to help. the most important thing in this game is dont fall behind periodicaly upgrade your weapons and sheilds when you pass the 5th sector the fights get realy tough whitouth enoug firepower or sheilds. hope this helps oh and sorry for any grammar mistakes english is not my first language

I haven't tried CheatEngine but I'm sure it'll work as I've used it on other games but editing data.dat works for me.

Don't go too crazy when you're editing the data file. Find the default burst gun you start with and increase the burst per shot or something then slowly go from there you want to change more things.

WTF is the point of even bothering to play a game if you have to cheat? Honestly? Face it, if you have to use a trainer or some other such hack you are a shitty player and nothing you achieve means anything.
..just my two cents.

Sincerely,
A Gamer That Remembers When You Actually Earned Your Victories
