Why the station only build small ships? Is there P limits to those built by station's factory?

In my understanding, there are a few factors involved:

First, a station will only be able to hold as many resources as it has containment for. If the station can only hold 1,000 R, it clearly cannot build ships worth more than 1,000 P for example.

Second, the stations will attempt to build in a 'heartbeat' fashion, where it tries to build a ship every few seconds. Here, again, it will only try to build ships with P values lower than their current R storage.

If resources are trickling in, the station will find it difficult to have the abundance necessary to build larger ships, and so smaller ships will be the most common by a large margin. On the other hand, if you roll in and dump several thousand into a station at once, expect it to build something a bit larger.

I don't claim infallibility, of course, but I believe this is how stations work.

Additionally, if you keep one station blueprint in your fleet list, most (or maybe all?) stations will be of that type when you regenerate the world or pass through a wormhole. It will also try to build ships from your list, so if your smallest ships are a couple thousand P, you can expect to see most of those. Otherwise, it will likely try to spam your smallest ship type(s).
