A big station would be simply big. About 80 ships per day manufactured, maybe.

A megastation would be more like 80 ships per second, artificial planets or habitats. If megastation sounds too much like something outta power rangers :lol: maybe a hyperstation, or an artificial habitat would be better names?

The difference between a big station and a megastation would be like comparing a fighter to a capital ship. Capital ships are obviously not just giant, scaled up versions of fighters...

And what are the qualitative differences do you have in mind but scale?

A capital ship is a scaled up fighter for a lot of purposes besides maneuverability, which is a function of scale.

So what would a megastation do besides being larger?

So you're saying that a capital ship is a giant fighter with a single cockpit and all that?

Dammit I just said that megastations can basically function as artificial planets/habitats and mass fleet production

A big station is just bigger than another one.

A megastation is not a normal station. It is a special, and gigantic, kind.

Honestly :evil:

It is special.
how?

How would they behave differently?
Give me concrete examples instead of nebulous "its different"s

For all gameplay purposes? Yes.
Its a big ship which may has different weaponry but functions more or less the same.

Maybe they could have their own economy, similarly to planets? Have them share some of the properties of being a planet?

I think S46 means that these are so large they are special due to the huge scale of whatever they are designed to be used for. They are just scaled up regular stations, but are notable, that because of that, they can outproduce every other station in some relevantly large area combined.

Giving them tertiary effects, like having a planet class economy, being a seat of political power for a suitably impressive swath of space, or having a massive buff applied to the controller would just be topping on the cake to owning a station that can out-do everyone within 5 jumps combined.

Megastations could be command centres or something. Kind of like what a church would be to a parish. Also, when I say a megastation is special, think of your own ways as to how a particular one could be good for a particular purpose, rather than limiting your imagination with what I come up with... ...even if the game is called Limit Theory... :lol:

Very true, the game should be called Boundless Theory instead because the player is certainly not limited in what they can achieve within the game. Or so I hope will be the case when it actually releases.
