[X3 AP] What is the best player Equipment Dock ?

Post by Klord » Sat, 20. Jun 15, 18:29

I bought an argon EQD. But it seem to be only able to dock around 10 ships at once. Is there a better EQD with better hanger capacity ?

Thank you...

As far as I know, they're all pretty bad - limited number of ships and almost no item storage capability.

The plots give you the gate HUB, which also stores 10 ships I think, and the player HQ, which has slightly better (item) storage capabilities and the ability to reverse-engineer / manufacture ships. So between those two, I'm not sure how many people even look at EQ docks.

I use TL's to store weapons, shields, and goods.

If it's not about bigger ships then I would consider using trading stations with internal docking capabilities (Argon and Teladi).
For storage you still have to use additional ships, but you will be OK for fighters.

I saw somewhere that boron EQ dock can hold infinite number of Non capital ships.
Can somebody confirm this?

for Capital ships the best dock is the PHQ

So far I have nearly 100 ships docked at a Boron one (most of them TS class)- very handy for safeguarding your small ships when you're not using them. And if you put your ED in a sector containing a weapons complex, the benefits are multiplied 8)
In The Threat, the Odysseus was the ship of choice.

In Terran Conflict, it was my Skirnirs that brought the destruction.

In AP, it was my fleet that greeted the Xenon!

Boron EQD for the win! more expensive than the Argon/Teladi trading stations but you get the 2 capital ship docks as well as unlimited* internal docking for TS/TP/TM/M6/M8 - well worth the extra!
*unlimited in the sense of practical purposes, in X2 I think there was a limit of 10,000 ships IIRC but not sure if that limit still applies.

feeling a bit thick today, how do you mean benefits are multiplied?

I think he means it as in you can have the weapons from the complex ferried over to the EQD, and then just equip the ships from there, instead of having them practically stand in line to get to the complex for outfitting.


(also, sorry for the necro, just thought that this thread still had an unanswered Q and wanted to give my 10c...)

OK, but 5 years a bit long for the question poster to wait for an answer. :D
