how to prevent trading of ware for owned transports only?

Post by Dirk-Jan » Thu, 11. Apr 19, 19:39

I want to prevent my station owned traders from trading space fuel due to the police harrassment. But it's OK if other races want to buy the product from my station.

How can I do this??

I may be wrong but I don't think you can do that without mods at this point. There's no way to select what goods the traders will sell if you don't restrict them from other races. I'll see the station trader from my spacefuel factory trucking like halfway across the galaxy to sell e-cells to one of my factories under construction even though there's a pirate base that's buying spacefuel right next to my spacefuel fab.

Possible option is don´t add an trader (freighter) to the station and let possible buyers come to you... based on your question this one seems the only way vanily wise that might work for you. Do not active restrict trade with other NPC (factions).... if you need traders for getting resources for the said station adjust prices accordingly so you wont need any traders( your very own) doing the legwork for you and or control them "manually".... by not subordinating them to the station.

Hope this helps

Its a problem if you don´t have any problems.

You can do this in 2.5 beta with blacklist options I believe.

You will need to set it for each ship in station I think. I have not tried it though!

Cheers!

No way that I know of.

Instead, I recommend using Courier- size (small) transports for that station instead. They'll still sell it, but they're a lot faster than M transports, and don't get the pirate or police issues that slower ships do.
