Ok, the title might be misleading, but it's to the question..If I were to create a faction. Is there a way to tell what DC's are still being given out?
I have been around for a long time and know that some DC's were no longer being given out to certain newly created factions.

What DC's are still being handed out for new factions..medical is one and ship productions get EP's..but what about weapons, vehicles ect.

DC's are no longer given out except for the few exceptions on the page Kaira linked above. The only factions that got DC's were the ones created when they were first selected. ie. New ship factions only get the EP DC, new vehicle factions get nothing.

Edit: Also, while its still listed that Med factions get the Neb-B and Sprint I thought I read something that new Med factions will no longer recieve those, maybe someone else can confirm.

That page is correct, and all DCs listed are those that you will receive. Vek, not sure where you read that Med factions won't get those DCs, but I've never seen such a thing in the forums. SPrint and Med Neb DCs are still given out, though the Med Neb is still a 1 use DC.

My mind must be playing tricks, better lay off the Jawa juice.

Is this to limit new faction creation for certain types of factions?

I'll base my questions on a weapons faction trying to make some guns.

How could a new weapon faction survive if it doesn't get any DC's?
Are they expected to borrow DC's off other weapon factions?

Wouldn't it be fairer to offer a standard set of DC's to all new factions,
but then grant rarer DC's for each year of activity.

Yes, new factions of 'producer' type are meant to negotiate D/C deals with existing factions in case they intend to produce anything.

And I doubt there will be free D/C. You would have to wait for RnD being coded and released and then develop your own stuff.

Generic production DCs have been discussed before, but have not yet been implemented.
