Building your own ships

Post by Scorpion1948 » Thu, 14. Mar 19, 16:10

Is there anyway to stop other factions building in my shipyards?

I only built them so that I could refit/repair, build and re-arm my own ships. I have two at the moment in different ends of the known Galaxy, but both are busy on other factions ships with no materials to build them with.
I cancelled all of their builds but they keep ordering.

I can't see why I bothered building them

In "Manage Funds" under the Station Manager is a check box for Stop all trade with NPC's

Does the Restrict Trade option in Logical Overview not work?
X-BTF, XT, X2, X3R, X3TC, X3AP, XR, X4F. Am I missing anything?

No, I mean there is an option for each product in the Logical Overview that allows you to restrict trade for the products that you don't want sold to other factions.
X-BTF, XT, X2, X3R, X3TC, X3AP, XR, X4F. Am I missing anything?

I was still getting customers at 150% ( at that time there were severe shortages at the shipyards for weapon components ), but I was also getting customers while the station was being built which was long before I had assigned a manager or ship trader ( did not check that box ). Checking that box did stop them from buying ( unsure of repairing ).

you should be able to restrict the NPC ship orders when you check the "restrict to others" box in at last one ship builder module.

that would be the very last entry in the logical overview.
For my Steam Workshop, klick below:

Yes thanks for all of the help.
I put the price at 150% and stopped building in the last box in logical, I than cancelled all pending builds for other stations.

Since then I have refitted quite a few large and small ships that have been waiting for some time.

Thanks again :D

There is absolutely no control or information 50 -150% is how much) And for what .. There are no log entries about the construction of ships and the money received for them. I would like more control and information about the work of the shipyard.
