Drache-mit-Gamma-EPWs Station Collection

This is my Thread for all stations I build.

Feel free to use them, if you have anything you wanna share with me or have Opinions about it, please let me know.



Last Update 30.04.2023

Updated the Research Station onto 4.2.1. I just added Boron parts for Terraforming, thats it.


What you need to Build my Stations.
  • All Parts from all races. All Defensive Weapons and Shields for the Stationary Turrets and Defense Parts.

  • The newest Game Update (Can include Betas, so be prepared for that)

  • Clipping activated on Modules. I will not build without it anymore.

  • 20 km x 20 km x 20 km building spots.
(That means 10 km on all axes)

Massive Production Station

Image


It will take some Hours to build, without Sinza I think a Week. The "first" version of this Station (http://prntscr.com/u80qw9) took around 4 Days to get finished.
Some Data for the Station.
  • Parts used: 750~
  • Estimated Credits for Build: 250.000.000
  • For this you to build you need a full 20x20 Space, otherwise it will not fit.
  • Building Time: Maybe a Week
  • Parts used to build it like on the Picture: All. Just have all parts from every Race. I mainly use Argon, Teladi and Split. Paranid looks ugly, so I will not use them. But better get all Production Parts from every Race, than you should be Safe.

When my Constructor is done with the Build, I replace the Picture with a complete one.


Image



Version 1.1

Image

Changed some small things. Removed Parts that had no actual use. Added a lot more of Storage from all types.

List what Changed
  • Part Numbers raised from 750~ to 1000~
  • I rotated the Shipyard L and XL for more aesthetic
  • This small thing costs now around 450-500.000.000 Credits
  • Removed one L and XL x3 Parking bay since it was ugly.... and it blocked my Energy Flow.
  • I added 2 more Power plants and lot more of everything
  • Moved some Defense Platforms around.
  • I rotated a hecktone of Stuff, hopefully not to clip in each other.


IMPORTANT Now you REALLY REALLY need from all Races the Factory Blueprints for each Part. I



Image




Version 2.0




Image

I had the Time to check if I REALLY added everything. And yes, I forgot Shield Factories.
  • Added one more x3 Dock for L and XL Ships
  • Doubled the Cargo Containers.
  • Building Costs: 1.350.000.000~
  • Removed some Parts
Image


Version 2.0.1

Small Fixes on the Station. Added Teladianium. 2.0 Version it was Cut of.

I came up with 2.5 because I wanted to upgrade my already existing 2.0s to something more Powerful without rebuilding everything. I added more Parking Docks for L/XL Ships, doubled the left side of Production and move some things around.

Big Stations

Energy Monster


Image

This is an Argon Based Station. This Station Contains every Production Part for Ships at least 4 times on the massive Platform.

You need the Paranid Docks and the Split XL 4 Times Dock.

I don't think that anyone will need it but this isn't about needing, this is about you CAN Build it. So why not.

Parts: 870~
Build Costs: 400.000.000~



Version 2.0


Image
  • I tripled the Parts from 870 to around 2700~
  • This thing now costs around 1.052.000.000 Credits.
  • I quadrupled the Fabrics from one platform to four, also the Cargo is now x5.
It took something around 2-3 minutes to copy one part like NPC Houses....

Okay let's be real for a second. That thing was just a massive lag machine and not really fun to be in the same Sector as that Station. I cut half of everything down BUT! i added so many Apartment complexes that it should be okay.

This is a bigger Version of my Headquarters I built and deleted many times, I wasn't happy with the result.

This Station can fit up to 16 L/XL Ships. 20 x8 M Docks and 24 x3 M and 6S Docks.
  • Parts: 210~
  • Building Costs: 185.000.000~
  • To build this you need beside all Argon Parts the Split x4 Dock L and XL.

Parts: 240~
Added 2 more x4 Split L and XL Docks.

Thank you for all these especially the BIG self sustaining MEGA SHIPYARD. Really appreciate your work.
One thing, I think Teladi Hull & Engine Parts would be more useful here. What do you think?
I find that other races take more time and material to make the above where as Teladi produce more for less as well and faster.

Sorry about my grammar!

Hi, thanks for the kind words.

Sorry for the late answer. Wasn't very active the last months in X4 :)

At this point I didn't really look in to this. I just build it with Parts I like. I think with the next DLC and the new Earth Stations I will go deeper in how long curtain parts need to build etc.

If https://seizewell.de/x4/X4-Materialfluss.php is accurate, then:
5760 Ore converts to 2400 Refined Metal per hour. 1120 Refined Metal converts to 1320 Hull Parts per hour.
4800 Ore converts to 2400 Teladianium per hour. 816 Teladianium converts to 1320 Hull Parts per hour.
That means 2688 Ore via Refined Metals or 1632 Ore via Teladianium to 1320 Hull Parts per hour.

2688 vs 1632 means less miners and less refineries. That is nice, if they are not ugly?
Did not look at food costs.

Actually all of this sound like a nice challenge for a Station. Build one that outperforms a simple "All Producer" with fewer Miners and Gas Collectors.

I'm building some of these in one of my saves currently. The research station design here and in that other thread where it's spherical look quite interesting. The new Terran modules seem to make any layout look good with the symmetrical modules. It would be nice to put paintmods on stations. Golden city in space? Blacked out intelligence or defense station. Anyways the "massiv production" takes awhile even when building at top speed of 60s per module. The wait is worth it.

2.5 should be the same like 2. Its just the left section added on it. I play on Update 4.20 right now. I also use the option for clipping Parts in each other. 3.0 is based on Argon Parts and i rotated Items so they point up.
