Station docking spaces

Post by Goloburdeaux » Tue, 16. Jan 18, 16:32

Is there any way to see how many docking spaces a station has?

Not it in the game, no. Here's a list from the X3 wiki though.

Yes, of course.

See it: Available docking ports

Note that it is not sufficient to simply look at that one page, because there are details, most described in the specific station pages.

For example, the Terran PHQ differs from Commonwealth, and Trading Stations do have race-specific values.


PS. I wonder where the 6+ Capitals value for the Super Shipyards is taken from?
I did tell 6 TL to dock at Argon Super SY, but only 4 did simultaneously.

If the number of fighters a station like shipyard can contain is unlimited, then why do my fighters sometimes undock without orders? I thought they were getting kicked off to make room for NPC ships.

"Regular" SY has one "Hook Dock", i.e. 5 hooks for five small (up to M6) ships.

Super SY has "Hangar", unlimited for fighters. (Argon and Teladi Trading Stations do have a Hangar too.)


What type of station did you use?
