One or two might have asked themselfes, “Now, what station is he talking about!?”
One, who asked that herself is me – after reading my posts again. I noticed that I mentioned Molden Heath but no solar system. So lets unveil the location.
The Molden Heath Mom-and-Pop-Store is located in Heild X – Moon 1 – Pator Tech School. I made a picture of the station for all of you.
You can see a nice view on the station with the Heild X’s first moon and the Heild system’s sun in the background. In the foreground you can see my Mastodon crossing from right to left. If you watch really close you can see me waving in my capsule. 😉
There are reasons why I choose exactly this station.
First, it’s a school. This means all standard skill are available via NPC orders. So there is no need for me to buy skills books and dedicate market slots for supplying them.
Second, it has a production facility. So I can produce all stuff locally without the need to haul bulky ship hulls. With the introduction of the new industy systems and ore compression, I am now able to haul big amounts of minerals in form of compressed ore to this station and reprocess them there.
Third, it is located on the “Molden-Heath-Low-Sec-Ratting-Ring”, a 18 jump route building a circle. Also the number of jumps per day are the second highest of all Molden Heath low security space systems. This means lots of customer flying by.
Twentyseventh, there a two level 4 distribution agents available on the station. 😛
By the way, Egbinger XI – Moon 3 – Republic Fleet Testing Facilities was another candidate station to choose from. It’s advantage is, that laboratories are available. On the other hand, not all skill books are available.
