Satellites

1) Are they build-able yet?

2) Who can build them?

3) What is required or how are they built?

4) Why are they listed under ships? (Aren’t they more like miniature man-less space stations?)
I guess they can use a docking bay for transport to position not built on site.

5) How do you access their real time sensor data? (Like other ships in same system just there for you? Any other way?)

Thanks for the info.

1) yes. If you're an Admin. ;P
But no for the general public

2) Information factions will have the datacard for the present sats.

3) There was discussion to determine this. Not sure what was decided.

4) Because they're NOT ships. They're satellites. Do you consider modern satellites the equals to space shuttles?

5) Yeah, it'd be like current scanning areas, I believe.

In number four, i think he meant that same thing you said. that they are currently listed as ships and he wonders why not as space stations since they have more in common.

I haven't looked for awhile, however they used to have their own section on the rules page. Though they wouldn't be stations. They'd be constructed in a way entirely seperate.

A big diff between satellites (ships) and stations: you can tractor in the first ones...

True. And they'd not be built in space. Still... Seems odd for them to be considered ships now. Meh.

Alot of good info. Thanks everyone.

If all this info is known, are they planned for release with production?


Humm if someone tractored a satalite of mine out of a deployed scensor network in a system and it is moved or goes blind in a ship bay. I hope the Network that sees it or the tractored satalite itself would notify me.

Same with someone hacking one to disable the scensors upon a failed attempt.

Just some thoughts.

Thanks everyone.


Veynom - Have you had a chance to get to the low priority moral post in this forum yet? I was interested in your answer. I'll bump it onto page one again.
