See the above subject; I'd still like it answered as there are a few things I've encountered that have called this into question.
Anyway, manufacturing: The question is do you have to be part of the appropriate faction (ie- ship building faction or weapon making faction) in order to use a factory to manufacture these things (ship faction for building ships at factory, etc.).
THe reason I ask actually comes mostly from something Teniel Djo said, where she'd let members of NFGs use Eidola factories free of charge. I assume this means members of NFGs who are members of another faction too, but is it possible to apply to people who are only members of NFGs?
