Archives » moving satellites within a grid

Can satellites be moved within a current grid by a ship with a tractor beam but without a docking bay? Like say a bff bulk, or would a vessel like the quasar be needed? / Suggestions welcome..

Docking bay, as far as I know, is needed

And there is no way to load a satellite onto say, a YV666 without a tractor beam I would imagine? Thanks Alexander I appreciate the response..

Directly, no. You can get a ship with a tractor beam and a docking bay, and get the satellite on board. You can then use the load entity option to move them to another ship with a docking bay, like a YV-666. Then you can use the unload option to kick them out, without neededing further tractor beams.

cannot load satellite from ship with docking bay and tractor beam to a ship with only docking bay; receive error message [satellite (ship without landing capacity cannot be loaded into docking bay)] but it was a good try..
