Quick Hub Question

Post by RoadRunner12 » Thu, 25. Jun 09, 23:47

If I set it to trade with other races, do the NPCs sell to it or buy from it or both? There doesn't seem to be an option to set it to one or the other like on normal, stations so I'm assuming it's both.

The reason I ask, is that I'm part way through the hub plot and have it set not to trade with the NPCs as I have been storing all my spare ammo/weapons there and didn't want to risk them buying all my stuff. After the plot is completed, I'm planning on moving all this stuff to the PHQ for storage and letting it trade with the NPCs again. The hub will still have all these items in its list, but with no stock so I'm wondering if it will start buying all the stuff I've stored there in the past from the NPCs.

That's correct. Depending on the price you set, NPC's will (mostely) buy, sell or do both.
A high price will attract NPC's selling stuff, a low price will attract NPC's buying stuff.

That's what I feared. Guess I will just have to keep its credits permenantly at 0 so it doesn't buy loads of stuff I don't want, just because I had them in there originally.

Set the prices of stuff you don't want bought to minimum, and it's pretty much certain that the NPC traders won't bring them- as the teladi would say, there is no profitsss.
Skirnir. No counter-argument possible.

But won't the station then still sell them at the low price if it has them in stock? What would be nice is if you could set it to either buy or sell or both, like normal stations.

Alternatively, is there a way to remove these items from the the trading list on the hub once the stock has been emptied? I presume this would be some kind of script.

If you want that you must either PM the originator or ask him in the script thread in the S&M forum. Only the author can offer it for the bonus pack.
