Park things at Lagrangian points

Post by mikehgentry »

Follow up to this thread, because I still think it's a good idea.
It would be cool to have things parked at the Lagrangian points.

Maybe spaceports, or maybe just industrial structures, communications arrays, research satellites, space junkyards awaiting recycling (or strip-mining by an enterprising commander... :-)

Maybe these structures have a market with high demand of consumer goods, like food, but zero production, so player could go there and sell grain. They wouldn't have a ship market, no police, no BBS.

Makes sense for the legitimate things (industrial / scientific etc.)

Maybe any stations that are really out in the middle of nowhere (with the lucrative dodgy deals) could have private security - more varied (and probably worse quality) ships and equipment, more corruption (easier to bribe, more likely to try to extort money from passing traders).

...or custom BBS adverts: "I need chocolate!!!", "Someone get me out of this place!"

Ha! You could have the equivalent of an oil rig around a gas giant, high demand for narcotics and human slaves. Very cheap hydrogen if you can stomach it.
