The best place for any factories is the unknown sector in between Montalaar&New Income you have Argon Boron and Teladi within 3 jumps making you a prime dealer in the universe.

Hello.

As i can see, one of the "Bala Gi Missions" requirements is to own a station and several millions of credits. As i understand, only extra large transports (like Mammoth) can buy and carry stations, and these transport ships cost around 30 million. Am i missing something or it is really not possible to build your first station until you earn enough to buy TL-class ship?

Thanks in advance.

YOu can hire a TL aswell. just find one roaming the universe, comm it, contact captain, ask it to transport smthng., then ask it to move to shipyard, wait till it docks, dock yourself, buy station, load it in the TL, comm it again, ask captain to follow you, move to where you want your station, wait till TL comes, comm it again, ask capt. to drop freight, a sector map appears, select the position of your station with nupad keys 1 thru 9 except 5, press enter. done.

Er, because 5 is the middle key on the NumPad and doesn't do anything.

Hi,

I believe that NumPad 5 centres the station to the nearest object - but it has been a while since I checked...

Question about towing a particular vehicle...

How are you supposed to get the yacht back to the shipyard?
If I tractor beamed it, it gets stuck on the other side of the gate and doesn't come through.

I forgot I had the ship claim software installed, and was able to simply force it to dock itself, but I still want to know how you would make it follow you through a gate if you tractor beamed it.

AFAIK you use the tractor beam and yes, it takes a lot of time for the yacht to arrive on the other side of the gate so be patient and use seta :D

Spoiler

They wanted a trading station. They were not specific of where they wanted it, and so I assumed they wanted it in Kingdom's End.

Is this where it is supposed to go?
I placed it there and I didn't receive any type of message from them.

You're not supposed to PLACE the station, you're supposed to take it to the shipyard.

Nice walk through. :)

I never would have thought of actually having to have it dock there. Sometimes I wish they were a tad bit more specific. LOL I figured, ok, you want this thing....gotta find some empty space for it :)

Well, it seems like I'm almost done :)

Does anyone know the best place to put your HQ?

I have no idea what exactly it will be needing in terms of resources but I do know it will need some good protection.

Could someone please link me to a topic which gives advice or recomend a sector to put it in.
