Default Any ship can dock at any station

As long as you're modifying stations, one thing that has never made sense to me in the vanilla X games is the fact that some of the larger ship classes can only be docked at a select few stations, why couldn't they dock at any station? I mean, I would think that whoever designs stations in the X universe would have made allowances for the larger ships when those ships were started to be built, creating docking ports for these bigger ships.

It's also kind of annoying for the player since it's tedious to shuttle in a smaller ship back and forth to get goods to fill up the larger ship's cargo and to sell that cargo, and it means that only in a select few stations will the player be able to dock to save the game while in the bigger ship.

Default AW: Any ship can dock at any station

Well for Saving there are salvage insurances (iirc the english name)

@Docking:
Actually this is already possible now. We are free to add docking positions for any Ship to any station we want.
Say 'thank you' to Chris Gi, the Master of scripting

Maybe there's some Instruction Manual for our changes somewhere ... probably in restricted areas...

I know about salvage insurance, but the player can only buy 1 at a time, it's more for saving just before doing something risky than a means to save wherever you want

Anyway, it's good to hear that Chris has already put some thought into this.

Default AW: Any ship can dock at any station

Well, I changed docking procedure to allow any ship to dock at any station - which wasn't an easy task btw and broke compatibility with some of the standard scripts. But this doesn't mean we're using this for every ship/station.

In fact, I think there are only a few stations that should allow M!/M2/M0/TL class ships to dock. If they're allowed to dock at any station, there'd be no need for TS ships. And why would a M1 ship dock at a Snail Ranch?
But I see your point - and I'm tired of docking at wharfs just to get a 125MW shield currently available at the local ED....
