& Strategy | Basic Play Guide | Stores
make any new equipment it is temporarily placed in stores, even hulls
are kept here when not in use. From the stores screen you can see all
the available equipment and if you want you can recycle it back into raw
resources. As well as making equipment you can also pick it up in game,
some of the larger capitol ships drop equipment pods. Even if you don’t
need it you can pick it up and then recycle it back into raw resources.
ship selection screen you can dismantle a ship and put it back into stores
with one click. If you don’t need the ship anymore you can also
recycle the entire thing into raw resources with a single click. Within
the ship construction screen you have control over individual items. You
can add items from stores, be aware though that only suitable items are
shown, i.e. if one engine is fitted you wont see any others to add, you
have to remove it from the hull first. You can also modify items of equipment
fitted to a hull, either recycling them into raw resources, putting them
back into storage or if they are weapons you can change the weapon's group.
If you are
in trouble and need resources quickly consider recycling some older or
unnecessary items. There is however a small reduction in the resource
value due to the conversion process. Don’t forget to pull in any
equipment pods dropped by exploding enemies; if nothing else they are
another source of raw materials.
