In my personal games my ships are stocked at the gate w/ &trCargoContainer and / or &trStationSupplies ( depends on the traffic, I have one for corporate, commonwealth & blackMarket (&trIllegalItems2 ) )
Code: Select all
(block (theShip) (setq theShip (sysCreateShip &tbCommTraffic; (random (sysFindObject Nil "G -uncharted;")) &svCommonwealth; &evCommTrafficBehavior; )) (objSetObjRefData theShip "home" homeObj) ; Add some items to the transport (objAddRandomItems theShip &trCargoContainer; (random 1 4)) (objFireEvent theShip "OrderBeginTraffic") )
Now that covers the part where the stuff comes in, but it will overload the stations if the system calls in alot of ships ..so that = ships have got to get rid of the stuff as well.
Code: Select all

but that's just me : the wrecks have to be set so the player can't overload with loot and in one of my .xml I had them set to give up nothing if the player killed them ( they became hostile wrecks too )
but I doubt there is a totally perfect answer to the problem ..we have tried the Galactic Trader
we added refreshing dynamic inventories ...but it's always seems to just be there to bite us in the dark ...
