Thread: Station building

    Station building

    Have the devs ever mentioned plans to enable station building in Elite?

    I think, what with all the uninhabited space, it would fit perfectly with exploration, mining and power play.

    If you want to install a station you have to drop a beacon in the system, then deliver raw materials for construction (big, long-term goals). Then maybe even do some missions of some kind to start the construction. I'd love to install a repair/refueling station outside civ space for explorers heading to distant reaches.

    Ooh also, once the station is installed it will be owned by your squadron, and the upkeep/maintenance cost would be missions you have to complete, or have completed by other CMDRS from your mission board.

    Like sourcing materials, blasting pirates if they're in the area, etc.

    The only way theyve allowed station building in game so far is through community goals. Other then that they havent mentioned anything on it

    So are there stations out there that have solely been built from community goals? It would be great if players could go beyong things like discovering planets and do other things such as building stations, trading engineering mats with each other, etc.
