How to spawn two ships?

I know I'm late to this thread, but with CIG removing Levski from the servers, where is the other easiest place to be able to spawn a ship with the ability to set down close, run back in and spawn another ship or ground vehicle?

I *was* using Levski for this as it was all so close and easy. I have a Carrack and want to be able to also spawn a snub to put in the hangar bay and also some ground vehicles to put in the garage bay. I am still new to Star Citizen and haven't explored everywhere yet, so not sure if there is another place even remotely as convenient as Levski for this type of thing.

It depends on the ship or vehicle you want to load into Carrack or 890 (and Starlifter in less than 2 months from now, hopefully).

You can use any Rest Stop to safely load a snub or smaller spacecraft.

As for ground vehicles, you can use any moon or planetary outpost with Platinum Bay services -- that would be any mining facility, for example.

Although this is not your case, Ballista is an exception, as now, with Levski decommissioned, the only two places where you could spawn it and load into 890 (and Hercules in the near future) are Lorville -- perimeter gates -- and New Babbage -- Space Port or New Commons. I personally prefer Lorville.

If you wan to quickly load both ship and vehicle, then New Babbage is the place. However, you have to be careful, as it is a frequently visited location, and Carrack doesn't have a low profile, which might attract hijackers or potential stowaways.

Okay, then sounds like New Babbage may be the ticket... but where exactly is that place where you can land and get back in to summon another ship?

BTW, I agree doing ground vehicles is much easier since you can do those at any Platinum Bay outpost, of which there are many, but ships into other ships seems much more difficult to do solo for now with Levski gone. I *had* already used Levski to situate my one Carrack with the vehicle load-out I wanted... then I CCU'ed that specific Carrack into a Perseus and bought the Megapack that has the Carrack... but now I have to get that one setup and missed my Levski window. 🙄

The best locattion to do park the Carrak will be near the Commons surface exit.
Where the hell is it???
Well, if from the space port you look into NB you'll see the monorail bi-fork, one is going straight toward the Nest (the tall building that looks like a Dison fan-less fan) the other deviate toward the commons. As soon as the monorail disappear into the ground thare are 4 dome, those are the commons... near the central dome there is a ramp for surface access.
You can land easily on the lake nearby and walk uphill into the comons to take the metroloop back to the space port.
Eventually there is also a vehicle spawn point there for retriving the ground vehicles too.

Here I mark the area of the surface entrance.

...and the other place is here at the spaceport; you can park Carrack on the left or right of the monorail.

After asking my question I had some time to get in-game, and I did find this! This is actually way easier than Levski was since I was able to park my Carrack on the side and quick run inside. I was able to quickly get my snub nose into the Carrack and then my Ursa and Cyclone TR. I then grabbed my MSR and literally parked it under the rails backed up to the exit ramp. Then got my ROC and a PTV into the MSR.

Thanks for this! My new favorite spot to do this.

I did find this one time and wasn't sure how to find it again. LOL... thanks for the directions!

I'm sorry, how old are you? How long you been playing? Damn Owl, I am disappoint.

But seriously, it is a bit wonky to spawn a second ship because you have to have your ship far enough away from the pad and then spawn another, but EVA back to PO sucks at that distance. Had a hell of a time when the Carrack first launched to get a Pisces in there.

I still think of myself as the age of when I first started backing, maybe younger, and that makes me feel old lol. I used to be able to pass as younger than I am and shoot the shit with the younger crowd, but recently some have started being respectful. Goddamn I feel old sometimes.

clearly, Alzheimer's in action

Also, fuck you too!
Just putting it out there, can we have a Get Fucked thread where we all just tell eachother to fuck off? I think I'd enjoy that.

P.S. Go enjoy your own genitals.

I didn't realize they were detachable but the fact they are compatible with Super Famicom cartridges was the most unexpected and enjoyable part.
