Equipment Storage OXP

Post by phkb » Thu May 16, 2019 10:44 pm

As part of my work on the Ship Configuration OXP, I implemented a system where equipment and cargo could be offloaded from your ship and put into storage. Then, at a later time, the equipment could be reinstalled, and the cargo transferred back into your hold. This seemed like a good thing to have on its own (without the overhead Ship Configuration brings), so I pulled it out and made it to be an independent OXP.

The interface is fairly simple. There will be a "Storage facility management" item on the F4 screen. Inside, you'll see any equipment and cargo currently stored at this station. You can select those items and have them put back on your ship, or, if you prefer, sold. Equipment will be sold at 85% of the original price, cargo will be sold (if there is room in the current market) at the station's market rate.

You can switch the view to include equipment and cargo you have storage in all other storage facilities around the galaxy. When viewing an item stored remotely, aside from selling the item, you can elect to have it transferred to your current station, although there is a chance of the equipment/cargo being lost if the transfer ship is destroyed by pirates.

Equipment is storage at 1cr per item per day. Some equipment items, which are viewed as having minimal weight or space, are charged at 0.1cr per item per day. Cargo is charged at 1cr per ton per day.

If you're using Ship Configuration, after today's update, you'll need to install this OXP for it to continue working.

Comments and feedback welcome.

Forgot to mention, the storage facility is only available at main stations. Info can be viewed at others stations, but access to your stored equipment/cargo is only from the main station.

Detailed info available on the [EliteWiki] wiki.

The OXP is available for download via the ingame manager.

Version 1.1 fixes the OXP name in the manifest file.
