How Trading Works

Trading makes use of a new currency called “Terra Tokens” which you can find in containers or earn through Trading. You’ll have to Build a Space Trading Rocket once you’ve unlocked the Blueprint. From there, you can fill the Space Trading Rocket with up to 25 items.

You can only buy or sell certain items with Trading. Items for sale must be placed in the Space Trading Rocket’s inventory, either by yourself or by Drones. You can set the Space Trading Rocket to automatically launch when its inventory is full; it will automatically return after around 10 minutes.

If you wish to buy items, you must select them in the Space Trading Rocket’s menu at the console nearby. You’ll need enough Terra Tokens to purchase these items. Once you’ve made your selection, you can launch the Space Trading Rocket; it will return after 10 minutes with your purchased items in its inventory and the option to automatically launch disabled, ensuring that you can actually collect your purchases.
