Yea, it's funny, the help text on all TLs tell you how they're too big to dock and have fleets of smaller ships that go between them and stations yet no ship can dock with the TLs save a few fighters...kind of stupid...TS need to be able to dock with the bloody things...

Freight Drones can dock.

If possible, i would love to see some dock space aboard the M7M ships, getting energy cells and other things onto them is a nightmare, and it's a hassle using the transporter all the time.

Can't wait until someone converts the bulk transporter upgrade, that is on my number one list of urgent conversions i think.

M8's ideally need external docks on M7's & M2's not sure about M1's though!

TP/TM/TS classes also external docking would be cool on M1,M2,M7 and TL.

Very much looking forward to this script. One of the most important / reasonable additions to the game!

The external TS dock also accomodates TP. I need to test TM, it's very likely that all three will work with the same component. In fact, I think they work for fighter class ships too (need to check).

Which would in essence, give you 1 external clamp for M5/M4/M3/TP/TS/TM.

M1 1 - 2 TS
M2 1 - 2 TS And 1-5 fighter docks depending on race
TL 1 - 3 TS (3 on mobile minning)
M7 1 TS And 1-2 fighter docks depending on race

M6's can dock anywhere they dont need resupply.

Holy crap, look what the cat dragged in!

How ya been?


I think I'll leave it as:
1 TS/TP on TL/M1
1 TS/TP on M2/M7 with 1 fighter clamp

A fighter clamp on an M6 would be redundant.

I was kind of hoping for 2 externals M1,M2,M7 so M8's could be used in my wings.as an M8 is technically about the size of an M6. :wink:

I'd like to buy 10 freighters at a shipyard and just stick them straight onto my TL ready for some factory building.

1 TS on other capital ships would be a bonus.

OP updated with where things are at.

That said, I can't seem to figure out what clamp applies to the M8 or the TM class ships...

That's another headache for another day though.

TL/M1/M2 done, M7 to go.

Yep. They do now. I edited the TS dockport, which now will dock anything up to an M6.

M3/4/5/6/8 & TP/S/M.

Very good idea. I'm wondering why Ego didn't add this feature "automatically"... It was one of the first modifications in X3R...

My Idea is:

TL: 2 TS/TP/TM/M6 slot
M1: just one TS/TP slot
M2: one TS/TP/TM/M6 slot, plus 1-5 fighters (internal, in hangar)
M7/M8: one TS/TP slot.
M6: one fighter external slot.


PS: Ashley, welcome back!

:D

Bertone, that's pretty much exactly what it is now, except the M6.

I figured, since the M6 can dock at all stations, the addition of a fighter clamp is redundant.


That said, I think I've gotten all TL/M1/M2/M7 scenes modified.

Fwiw, the M8s aren't very big. A TS docked to one is silly.

So, the way it is now:

TL: 2 external TP/TS/TM/M6/M8 (clamp also allowes for 1 fighter also)
M1: 1 external TP/TS/TM/M6/M8 (clamp also allowes for 1 fighter also)
M2: 1 external TP/TS/TM/M6/M8 (clamp also allowes for 1 fighter also) + 1 fighter (M3/M4/M5)
M7: 1 external TP/TS/TM/M6/M8 (clamp also allowes for 1 fighter also)

M6s and M8s are unchanged.
