Its not possible to get pods to build because there is a conflict between the pod classlabel and build classlabel.

That would be sooo incredibly awesome if they could, but it is absolutely impossible given the class label restrictions. There are also no unused classlabels that will allow it to be done either, sadly enough. :(

Heh. I actually ended up with some very strange results when attempting that. The fabulous expolding-ship-as it-leaves-the-spacedock, I also had one that would complete construction and move around, but it would not leave the confines of the shipyard's shield perimeter. That one was really goofy. I wish I had saved the ODFs so I could recreate it.

That sounds like it might have some use in the game, though it is a side affect of something - often, side affects produce cures to other problems...

Maybe I try to recreate it. It was back when I was trying to make unique hero ships. Never got that to work either.

Pity, was it possible in A1? I seem to remember that westworld released some sort of modular station but im not sure. Anybody know?

Its not possible for pods to build, however it is possible for you to build a total of 28 pods on one station, ideal for Borg Nodes and Ugrades.

In A1 it was possible for stations to build pods that weren't pods - they could be shipyards, repair stations, docking stations, research stations that build pods of their own, etc!

Yeah, using the secondaryBuildItem command, you can make new secondary pods as well. That's what the upgrade centers on Armada 2 do (Level 2 and Level 3 upgrades).
