After playing a few more games.. I have come to realize.. I want a Space port that I can just use for cargo transfers and refueling! So can we have a "Outpost" type of space port? Be like a small space port, but with out the requirements of a space yard, production, etc.
So planets can have a minor space station for cargo loading and unloading.. refueling, etc.
I also wouldn't mind seeing a tanker class ship that can ship fuel around. Since I have stations I'd like to set up in the middle of no where or at the very front lines. Cheap stations just there as a gas station, that would only get fuel from tankers that bring it to them from the space ports.
Fideach, The Resupply ship is your mobile gas station outpost that bases on gas giants and gas clouds.
-A very large fuel tanker/tender ship that has certain components allowing it to fuel/repair far deployed ships would be good. It could act like a freighter by carrying fuel from based resupply ships and bases to far deployed ships and repair them via components such as those in resupply ships and construction ships.
-Also, a later high technology component like a reactor/generator that greatly lowers or even elimates the need to refuel. It could be very large and only fit on lareg ships, including tankers/tenders and bases but it gets smaller with further research.
