I think the Ctrl-Alt-Right Shift-F6-Z key combination is free, if you want to use that.

Thanks, phkb, for dragging this out of the dust and giving it a new lease of life! I'm much happier writing fiction than software (it's a lot easier to debug, for a start). The asteroid "Stranglehold", in the story of the same name, is based on my idea of what FTZs are like - although Stranglehold itself is a very up-market version of the type.

Version 0.30 has just been released. This version includes an updated station model based on Griff's shadered Rock Hermit.

[Edit] You'll notice that the size of the OXP has increased a bit. Well, OK, a lot. Most of this is because the texture images are a much larger size, meaning the station will look much better up close. If anyone still wants to use the smaller, less detailed version, let me know and I'll add a link to it on the wiki page.

Thinking about the 1,000₢ charges on this one.

For a strong GalCop with a strong Galactic Navy etc., fine.

But for a weak GalCop fighting off Thargoids and pirates (and losing), with bits of GalCop breaking away and clobbering other bits (eg Resistance Commander.oxp), how would they have the wherewithal to enforce any of this?
Comments wanted:
Missing OXPs? What do you think is missing?
Lore: The economics of ship building How many built for Aronar?
Lore: The Space Traders Flight Training Manual: Cowell & MgRath Do you agree with Redspear?

They’d probably just audit the docking logs on a semi-annual basis, and cross-check with payments from the FTZ. In the event a discrepancy is found, they’d revoke the permission to have the station in system. Or plonk a bounty on the station itself.

Certainly a calculating mistake, the 1000 should be 100.0 like how other values are 'decimated' ...

This is one of the scripts which remove an item from the gallery when 'viewed' from/in a system not meeting the conditions...
