I have a JC in 0.0 and its about 30 jumps from my normal stomping grounds. I haven't activated it yet, so I don't know the answer to the question in the subject.

When I have my 'main' character in that station and try to buy another clone, it tells me there is already one there.

If I activate the jump clone, can it buy another JC at that station? The station is an alliance installation where I can get a JC with my current standings. I don't know of anywhere else to get one except through Estelle Arador, but I don't want to quit my corp just to do that.

Any ideas?

A jump clone is merely a target to jump to. You are always in your main body. A jump clone is a body that you can transfer yourself into. After transferring, it becomes your main body; and the body you jumped out of becomes a jump clone.

There is also another limit: Maximum of 1 jump clone in any station at anytime.

If you want to buy a jump clone at a station that you already have a jump clone, jump to it from somewhere else, and then buy one.

And once you do that, make sure you don't jump back from a station that already has a jump clone, or one of them gets deleted.

Thank you very much for your responses. Now let's see if I understand.

I jump to the existing jump clone from the main and buy another jump clone. I need to get one of the two clones in that station out of there or, if I jump back to that station, one of the two will be deleted?

It would be wonderful if I understand this correctly. Several problems solved at once. Very Happy

After you bought a jump clone, you pretty much have to fly yourself out elsewhere.

Place medical clone in highsec, fly to 0.0 and create jump clone.

Undock, suicide.

Jobs a good one :)

You will never have two jump clones in the same station. You can't buy a jump clone if you already have one there. If you jump from a station that has a jump clone, one of them will be destroyed when you jump: just don't do it. Always fly to station where you don't have a jump clone before activating a jump clone.

Note: you only need standing to buy a jump clone. You can relocate a jump clone to any station by jump from that station: standing are not required.

So to create multiple jump clones:
1) Dock anywhere other than the station where you have the jump clone.
2) Jump to your jump clone.
3) Buy new jump clone.
4) Repeat as desired.

Another important tip, before locating your medical clone in a conquerable station/outpost, make sure that you have a jump clone in am NPC station with medical services. Bad things can happen if you don't.
