Guide for Avorion – supply chain factory station without cargo shuttles
Check the local price for goods!
Use a permanently installed exceptional trading system to see them.
Steel has +30% here and is easy to sell, so that we will set up a steel production here.
Some goods are tough to sell. A good price won’t help you when you have no customers.
Build the required stations close together
Place the stations close together. 3km is the minimum distance.
Here is a good guide on how to build a station:
I always build my stations in a sector with a friendly faction to help me and tank the pirates/ Xsotan. Some defense for the station is still recommended.
Attacks are player-triggered. So your station will be safer when you are not in the sector!
I use a single small storage block for the coal mine.
No shields, no generator, no assembly, no weapons, no crew.
The coal mine already has enough HP from the stone and a minimum 15-sec production cycle.
Here is a guide on how much assembly blocks are required:
“ProductionTimeInSeconds = max(15, value / Factory.productionCapacity)
Where value is = sum(market value of good * number produced * goods level) for all goods.”
The goods index. lua can be found here:
So for the steel factory, we will need:
1*277*6 / 15 = 110 assembly capacity
So we need to add a tiny assembly block for the minimum 15-sec cycle!
Reduce the distance between the stations to a maximum of ~2km!
The exact range depends on the rarity of your transport software.
I know 2 options to do this:
1. Expand your station in direction to the other stations:
Just build some blocks, and you will see that the distance to the other stations will decrease.
Continue until you have a distance of < 2 km
2. push those stupid stations with your fancy space ship!
It’s no problem when you use armor blocks, but please do it slow and gently.
Your stations will have docks, and they will clear their runway from all obstacles.
And yes, other stations count as obstacles!
So plan your runways carefully.
Equip them to be supplied the station with transport equipment
The steel factory needs:
Transporter Block, size does not matter
Permanently installed Improved Trading System, rarity does not matter
Permanently installed Transporter Software
Transport equipment is not required for the supply stations.
Set up the trade orders
Open the galaxy map.
Click your sector and click the steel factory.
Click “buy goods.”
Choose the needed good (scrap metal) and any amount.
Hold SHIFT to add the next buy order (coal) as a chain-link border.
Hold SHIFT to add a loop (just click the button rightmost)
It should look like this when you’re done:
