|4.0 BUILDING AND OPERATING FACTORIES:|
Factories (i.e. your own space stations) are THE way to make money in the game. They're built and sold at the Teladi Shipyard - go there and take a look. They're expensive!
|Besides the cost of the
factory itself, you'll also need credits to
pay the Albatross transporter and some operating capital.
build a factory, first figure out where you want it. Seizewell
is fine for a starter. To get your factory:
|1. Find the Teladi Albatross and hire him. He's hanging around in Seizewell, and appears as a rectangular blip on your radar.|
|2. Go to the Shipyard and buy your factory. (They won't sell it to you unless you've already hired the Albatross.)|
|3. Exit and fly to where you want the factory. The Albatross will follow you.|
|4. 'C'ommunicate with the Albatross and tell him to unload. A really neat video sequence shows your factory being built.|
|5. Dock and set up
whatever your particular factory needs.
