WHAT THIS FIXES
When you buy a ship at a shipyard, the ship is delivered
to an empty docking port. In Alpha 3, there were only 2
docking ports available and recent trading changes made
trading with shipyards more likely for NPCs, so there was
a strong possibility you couldn't buy a ship because there
would be no docking port available for the delivery.
This patch adds 4 docking ports to the shipyard and makes
some tweaks to the economics data. This increases shipyard
availability so you can buy new ships more often.
If a shipyard cannot deliver a ship at the time you are docked,
then the option to buy ships will simply not be present. This
will indicate that the shipyard cannot make a ship delivery
at this time.
This patch is compatible with saves from Alpha 3, however
the changes will only apply to new shipyards. This means that
an existing shipyard would have to be destroyed and a replacement
built for the changes to take effect.
It is recommended to start a new game if possible after applying
the patch because the new game will contain no shipyards with
These changes will be included in Alpha 4 when it is released.
