In five different games I've found Tinker stations right next to other stations in Eridani in 1.6 and 1.7. Found one next to Raisu Station twice, twice more next to a Mining station in the inner asteroids. Fifth one some weeks ago, can't remember details.
Usually running mods but the last two were in unmodded 1.7a1 games.

Anyone else seen this and is it meant to happen? Nothing in Eridani.xml in 1.7a1 mentions Tinkers.
I don't mind this happening because it can give you some good cheap armor.

Consider yourself lucky!

I've recently had games without any Tinker stations at all....
Never seen them in Eridani, but very often in the second system, so I guess it should be possible they appear in Eridani.

I believe George put in code that guarantees at least one tinker station per game. This is a side effect of that.

George did! The only way Tinkers do not spawn is if all systems prevent random spawning; I remember updating the Star Castle mod to prevent Tinkers from appearing in the Arcade adventure.

Thank you. I wondered why it was happening and now won't report it as a bug.
