Missile Factorys

Post by kaishu » Mon, 11. Jan 16, 18:01

Anyone know where to get Spectre Missile Fab..got a Poltergiest Fab no probs. Been in all Terran Sectors. My only source of Missiles was a Factory in Aldren. It seems as the the God Syndrome has hit as the only Fab supplying these Missiles has gone.

If AP - then you can buy it at Saturn, The Moon, Mars and Megnir.

X3 Terran Conflict and let me say again after a long search there is nowhere to buy a Spectre Missile fab. You can buy a fab for any other Terran Missile system

The Wiki says you can't buy a factory:
Exceptionally difficult to source, as the factories can never be bought.

I don't know how relevant is the information regarding the last patch of TC.

You could try ensuring the previous factory site sectors are well supplied with the necessary resources using player-owned stations with trade ships, using local ST/LTs, and by buying up such missile stocks as you can find for sale in nearby supply facilities. That might trigger the GoD engine into more readily replacing one or more of the desired missile factories.

Effectively that would be taking action similar to a Terran Economy revitalisation project but is a very long-term undertaking and with no quick results. It may be challenging and enjoyable in gameplay and satisfaction terms though.

Do Spectere fabs even exist in TC? I seem to recall those missiles just appear in the Aldrin Unknown stations.

Yes, in my vanilla X3TC mature game I currently have Spectre Missile Manufacturing Facility Alpha making them in the Uranus sector, and Aldrin Weapon Production Base M Alpha making them in Aldrin.

These are either there from initial game generation or added by the GoD engine. I don't know if I have lost any other Spectre production facilities along the way.

that sounds right. Exactly what happened to me. Only the Station in Aldren that was supply these Missiles got hit by the "God Factor" and suddenly dissapeared. But if you can buy Fabs for all other types of Missilles why no Spectre Fab is it a "Bug"

An inconvenience, an oversight, maybe a balance measure if they then thought Spectres too powerful if used without limits, or perhaps a bug. I am not sure. It is an indicator though that you can buy the stations in X3AP.

Without going the modding route, GoD is your best bet now.

I just assume: if you take a Skirnir and destroy with it many Terran stations (the Skirnir needs to leave the sector when its Shadow missiles are flying - so you don't loose recognition) - this may provoke Mobile Mining Base-ships to start rebuilding of the stations, and one of them may carry a Spectre Factory. As soon as you cap this TL, very quickly change its orders until it stops and becomes fully manageable.

You probably can't. I've seen several of those TLs and you can't board them.

Wait, are you referring to those TL piloted by unknown object, which you can't board can't aggro and just have to blow them up?
