Archives » What do Space Colonies do?
Year 12 Day 66 12:10
What do space colonies do? I checked the rules page for stations, but nothing there specifically says what each type of station actually does. I assume that space colonies are stations capable of holding large numbers of people, but I'm not exactly sure what that means for me, the owner.

Is it like a small city? Does it generate income? If I were to purchase one, would I have to pay continual (lets say, monthly) maintanence-type fees? Can a single person own and operate a space colony by themselves?

I saw one for sale on CPM, and was considering buying it. However I don't really know what it does... Any help would be greatly appreciated :D

Not a lot. You can hire certain NPC types for them. You can dock ships in them. You can store RMs/items/etc. in them. They have a passenger capacity of 200, so they'll hold quite a few NPCs.

People (especially private individuals/freelancers) seem to tend to use them as cheap personal bases for storing assets, etc.

Ah ok. So it's basically a place to store stuff, especially NPC's.

Well, given my complete and utter lack of stuff, I shall refrain from purchasing a space colony. Thank's for the responces.
