This has been nagging me for nearly a month and I have no real answer for it. To pick up a Cargo Container, would you need a Docking Bay (for ships) or a Hanger Bay (for vehicles).

Hope I can get this answered soon, driving me nuts. Thanks!

so since cargo containers are in the rules category "ships" i would guess ... a hangar bay for vehicles.

Cargo containers require docking bays to be moved.

Thank you for the answer. I just found it rather curious since it does not act like a ship other than itself floating in space. Anyway, thanks again!

AFAIK You also need a ship with a tractor beam, just like with moving Satellites.

Actually Kay you can also squad with sats and move them into a ship with a docking bay.

I use just a normal fighter to do this on ships without a tractor beam. The same may work for epods?

Since you can enter the cargo container, couldn't you just go into its cockpit and dock from there? SO long as your other ship is in the same square.

I do not think Containers have the Travel option.

As far as I remember they give you the "don't have landing gear" error if you try dock them from their cockpit, like some other things, so gotta tractor them. They might have fixed it though, been a while.

Robert Gunns that sounds like a bug

You need a tractor beam to dock containers. I moved some recently and only could use a tractor beam. Epods can lightravel, thats why you can dock them, but containers can't travel, and thus not dock themselfs.
