Try watching it on 2x speed or something, I cover pretty much every feature of LU (except maybe for mobile mining) across the series, a full LU playthrough is pretty long (150+ hours) so the series is actually already very distilled.

Lasertowers aren't great in early game because they are relatively expensive/rare/slow to produce and in OOS combat you will inevitably lose some over time so it's a constant drain of resources at a time (early game) when you cannot afford that kind of drain. Use an early fleet of M6 + maybe some M3+ (or simply just a good M6 player ship) to jump in where you get attacked and defend. If you cannot afford yet to defend your installations against Phanon+ then simply do not deploy any until you have enough of a fleet to do so. Instead focus on trying to make money using mobile means (doing missions and using automated traders) so that you don't have any structures to defend.

In terms of what stations are most profitable, I wouldn't know because I don't really deploy single stations/regular complexes but for Saturn Complex Hubs it's a good idea to make the cheapest weapons since their factories are cheap (does not require huge investment) and they pay off quickly (about 1.5 game days) and they occupy little volume which makes them easy to move about and sell them. Note however that you will need to diversify, don't make lots of SCH making just one type of weapon because soon enough the universe will be full of those weapons and you won't have where to sell them.

HEPT is OK but not ideal, go for even cheaper weapons (Alpha Particle Canon, Impulse Ray Emitter, etc).

In terms of SCH size I generally wait until I get at least a SCH25 or so, since that would also allow me to use very efficient supporting factories (L sized food and XXL sized solar power plants). The larger the size of the supporting factories is the more profitable your SCH is because of the lower cost of the larger sized factories/solar power plants per produced units. Also, speaking about efficiency, you want to deploy those SCH in a sector with lots of sun intensity, the higher it is the better (fewer solar power plants needed to produce the same amount of power cells).

Action station should work just fine, unless there are any ships docked at it, check your message log. You can sell stations carried by a TL in its cargo hold (they have to be docked to a shipyard that you can trade with).

Anyone else have the weird issue with UT ships just vanishing off the property list?

Nothing was mentioned on the message list about it being destroyed or anything of the sort.

... oh wait, there is a button that hides them that I must have hit.

There is any mod for ship repair not in shipyard? I use ADS but repairing cerberus hull is very very slowly (i have 40 mechanics), maybye some repair lasers with more power that space suit laser

You cannot relocate SCH. You will have to dismount it (load all factories into TLs and sell them or reuse them for another SCH). Don't forget to unload all asteroid resources from the SCH or you will permanently erase those from your game. Then when everything is clear you can auction the SCH.

All this is explained in my series as well :D

Szynszyl, if you don't have enough time to take advantage of the learning resources at hand - like that video - maybe you should make time to read through the answers to your questions. Memeics has literally given you this answer above.

Please be respectful of other's time and effort when they give it to you.

curlsworth, be cool. Honestly i dont see answer where memeics said how exactly sell factories from TL, i dock TL on shipyard, but shipyard dont buy stations. I like to watch tutorial movies but memeics stream is helpless. I dont want to write this but in first episode after 30mins of watching i know nothing. Maybye in next episodes there are some informations but after first i've been bored. Im not lazy as some of you think, but i like short rich information
