So a Jump Point Defense Base is effectively a waste of time? PDC's don't seem to need maintanence though. My PDC's around Earth are up to a 60000% annual break rate but never have had maintenance problems.Planetary Defense Center.
The wiki says I have to transport the prefab parts via cargo ships but I don't even have the option to pick them up from Earth.
I know, I know. But I figured a jump point defense base would be the same sort of structure as a PDC so I set it as PDC in the ship designer. Though I had assumed PDC's were both planetside AND orbital, as their default assignment is listed as "PDC Fleet".
EDIT: Also I'm aware how to prefab PDC's. I have 40 sections for the one I'm trying to build and only need 5 per PDC. Yet, I don't have an option to pick up prefab PDC components. Only the usual "Load infrastructure, Load Automated Mines, Load Minerals" :C
FURTHER EDIT: Just had an idea. Probably a "derp" moment but can I drop buoys with active sensors at jump points to keep an eye on them instead?
