Hello Would it be possible to build extra structures from another structure? Like an add-on as such. Because in my mod there are weapon platforms, and I would like to know if I could give them options to act as a turret and at the same time be able to construct different weapon options, like cannons or lance arrays. Also, would it be possible to do this and also be able to construct additional platforms from one platform, which would be linked by giant bridges? This all probably doesn't make much sense. So I'll try like this. Platform One - Constructs Platform Two - Constructs Weapon, Lance or Torpedo Battery Platform Two - Constructs Platform Three - Constructs Weapon, Lance or Torpedo Battery Platform Three - Constructs Weapon, Lance or Torpedo Battery How could I do this? If its even possible. I'd like each to be their own entity as such, as in have their own shields and stats, so they can't be fused together, because that creates one big unit.

it makes sense to me because ive tried doing it before, and the closest I acheived was the "Turret Base" station I uploaded onto the site.

Yeah I saw the Turret Base thing, but I wanted to know if you could build additional platforms from the one, like an upgrade as such. Which could then have its own choice to which weapons could be chosen for it. Like a completely new station.

Your idea would sort of work, just keep a few points in mind:- You cant build a ship yard as a addon (it just wont work) And the only way you would be able to make it work correctly, would be to build the new station as a addon then use the seperating weapon to split them (you will need some clever odf editting to do this) good luck

So I couldn't actually add on new stations by using the research classlabel or some other label I don't know about? I'm pretty new to the whole classlabel thing, I only know the basics of them.

Hello: It is sad you cannot research yard-like stations in Armada2. If that could be possible we should be able to make Unimatrix-like stations in Armada2 like in Armada1.

I didn't want them to build ships or anything, just to be able to build their own weapons array. Like building the platform, then having it completely empty so the user has to choose a weapon, and after that they can then add another platform, which does the exact same as the first, until you have 3 platforms with the same/different weapon options. But reading all this here seems like I won't be able to do it lol.

Hello: I do know you can make a research-like stations that can build armed pods. But to make a third level, I don't have enough knowledge to answer that, but I think you may take a look to the upgrade stations and see how they made the level2 and level3 pods, maybe that can help too. I think that can be done :D

Ah now thats something I didn't consider before. The levels of the construction would help. Hmm. You might have just solved my problem.
