The 7 item types from the Inventory screen


  • Weapons - determines how much damage your ship does to enemy ships and how often each attack occurs.
  • Armor - the hull of your ship which greatly influences how many Hull Points (HP) you have, as well as affecting your jump/movement speed.
  • Storage - the cargo hold of your ship which allows you to carry around more resources.
  • Engines - primarily affects movement speed and movement capabilities, including stealth technology.
    • Engines do not have ranks or ship-type requirements
  • Computers - allows for customization of a ship's stats, but with some penalties in other stats.
    • Advanced (Tech) Computers have more bonuses and less penalties, but can only be obtained with Combat Points.
    • Some computers have EquipPoints bonuses, which let you use even bigger weapons, armor, or storage.
    • All computers are ship-specific (i.e. a Toil computer for Shuttles can only be used in Shuttles, and not Battleships).
  • Harvesters - increase asteroid harvesting efficiency, as well as providing some minor stat bonuses.
    • Harvesters do not have ranks or ship-type requirements
  • Specials - greatly affects what the ship does and how it behaves in combat. This allows you to take on specific combat roles, such as repairing, tanking, or dealing even more damage.
    • Advanced Specials provide large stat bonuses to specific stats, as well as providing large EquipPoint bonuses.
    • All specials are ship-specific.
