Import Dock Question
« on: February 10, 2012, 11:22:01 PM »
Got a question about import docks...

So in the description, it says the import rate depends on the systems import...  So I tried to make a mobile constructor with an import dock so that I could build some ships in an asteroid system, but it doesn't look like it's getting any materials from the galactic bank.

Does the import dock work in systems where there is no other importing facilities?

Thanks...

Import dock isn't in base game this should be in the modding section really. For now the answer is yes. In 1.9 no.

(Mods - please move this to Modding section if necessary.)

So just to clarify, I SHOULD see my import dock on ship in purely asteroid system work at bringing bank resources to the ship?  Because I don't see that happening now...

Thanks.

Sorry should have been cleared, at the moment import docks will only work in systems which you have space ports, apart from that they won't work.

Great - thanks for the clarification.  I'll need to set up my asteroid systems by other means then... :)

move a planet in there :D problem solved, planet imports resources and produces ships, if u wanna go a step further, build a drydock in orbit around the planet for production.
one problemo i notice is pirates will attack the system now

Not in 1.9 Skye, import docks don't need planets in the system anymore.
