Marvin, I think this is for you...
Okay, I've got another thing to bring up regarding the building of Business Centers. NOTE: I have little to no previous experience with Contractors with CWIR.
As I did a week or so ago, once again I've ordered an HOL-CV from the capital shipyard in District 08. This time I flew to the edge of Zone 08, selected a build location in Empty Space (to keep my BC safe from enemies). ordered the BC built by Contractor, build ready to use, and flew back to the shipyard to wait for my second HOL-CV to finish constructing.
I then noticed a CV, not assigned to any faction fly into view. Wondering about a capping opportunity (those 100 Construction URVs look real juicy for my 3 Ayosanas), it then flew off to Zone 7 and I followed, by the time I caught up it had deployed and started construction of a BC adjacent to an existing npc one. Huh. So I took a mission, came back and the CV was gone. Wondered if that was my Contractor so I reloaded save.
Then I flew to the center of that Empty Space zone and ordered BC by Contractor and Ready to Use. I noticed the npc CV in that Zone, then it powered off to another Zone. Didn't follow, reload again. Think it might/must be an Empty Space bug.
Third time I ordered my BC to be build same way but in Zone 08. In came npc CV, flew to my selected build spot, built first stage and ordered materials for second stage. It needed energy cells, bio-optic wiring (if I remember correctly) and reinforced metal plates. Terran Universal Transports delivered energy cells, then Bio-wiring, but before rmps arrived, the CV closed up and jumped away, leaving the deployed constructor drones. The third Terran Transport flew to the CV spot (now empty space) disappeared there.
...and I still don't have by Business Center. Guess I'm going to have to do this the hard way and provide things myself.
On a side note, and still thinking those 100 construction drones look juicy, do I break something if I cap a contractor CV? Obviously, I wouldn't expect by station to be built... or does a second juicy target show up
