Is it possible to have stations built inside the Xenon HUB?
If it's possible, do I have to finished the plot first?

I'm thinking of dropping an Equipment Dock, or two, in there as a place to stage my M7M's and some of my smaller ships that don't have missions. Would also be a great place to store all the missiles and weapons I've collected until I need them.

Another question--I read something in passing--can't remember the answer...
When you 'connect' one of the Gates to the HUB, only the owners ships pass through the HUB..or do all ships using that Gate pass through the HUB?


It's not what someone has done..it's about what they are about to do!

There have been reports on the Egosoft forums of players building entire complexes inside that sector.

I normally place the PHQ there, directly below the Hub station, and a Teladi Trading Station to use as a military firebase (somewhere you keep a wing of jumpdrive equipped fighters for rapid deployment).

Once the gates are connected any traffic that would traverse the gate in either direction will now have no choice but to travel through the Hub sector.

And no, you don't need to finish the plot first, as soon as you have access to the sector you can start dropping stations (inadvisable before you've 'moved' it away from Xenon central though... Wink )

Great!
Thanks for the information, Kirlack.

I like the Trading Station/Firebase idea. I my borrow that one.

Connecting the Gates--one can pretty much direct traffic to "you".
Sounds like a good way to 'corner the market' in some sectors.

You can build them there, although do get some odd OOS things happening in that sector.. plus there are no rocks either. I would recommend putting the complex just past one of the gates were the HUB is connected. You will still get the pass-byes.

You need Boron rank of (I think) King's Knight and Trade Rank of (again, I think) Apprentice Trader. Then in a boron (core?) sector you'll get commed by one Mahi Ma.

Bloody boron.

Yea you actually have to do it a little bit at a time because the hub can only hold so much of a product at once. So you have to put some in and wait until it disappears then put more.

CLS and CAGs have no problem handling this if they are set to unload max cargo, its possible to send a CLS freighter full of say, microchips, and it will unload them all a little bit at a time. Assuming they are setup to do that obviously.

Mission guidance won't do anything on the Hub plot, unless you're at a point where you need to return to Mahi Ma, or at the point where you need to collect the Paranid Mahi Ma recruits to help him out in the final stages. The rest of the time it's a resource gathering excercise, so the mission guidance won't point you anywhere.

Pretty sure equipment docks don't manufacture anything. It's storage, Scott. I've even had station build missions targeted at my Hub sector. I'm big on infrastructure and development, but no beans.
