Trading

Colonies can trade with orbital trade ships (via a comms console) or with other factions by using caravans. Tradeable commodities include slaves/prisoners, furniture, gear, resources, food, drugs, and works of art.

 

The trade interface shows what commodities are available to trade, the colony’s stock, the trader’s stock, and the prices to buy and sell.

 

Caravans consist of one or more faction members often with pack animals and/or tamed animals in tow. Players can either form their own caravan or wait for others to visit their own colony. To trade with a foreign passing caravan, direct a colonist (preferably with high social skill as he/she can get better prices) to speak with the caravan member who has a yellow question mark above the head. Stored items will be eligible to sell and appear in the trade window. Purchased items will be dropped in the location where the trader was standing and will need to be hauled.

 

 

Sometimes, foreign caravan members may fight each other and accidentally drop items from their gear inventory.

 

 

After finishing the required research, a comms console and an orbital trade beacon can be built, which allow:

 

  • -Satellite calls to request caravans to friendly faction at the costs of 1100 silver, which can be reduced to 700 silver if goodwill is above 40. You can only call for a caravan from a given friendly faction once every four days.

 

 

  • -Interaction with orbital trade ships which will stay around for a limited time. A blue notification will appear at the right of your screen to announce the trade ship and its type. After it’s gone, a simple notice at the top of the screen will note when the same vessel leaves comms range and can no longer be traded with. Each trade ship varies in type, which determines its inventory.

 

 

To trade, order a colonist to interact with the comms console. Only items located within range of an orbital trade beacon can be traded. Purchases will be sent via drop pods to a beacon’s open-air tiles, drop pods will phase through constructed roofs otherwise. If all beacon tiles are covered, drop pods will land at the nearest eligible tile.

 

Prisoners can be sold directly from their cell even if not in range of a beacon and tamed animals can be sold from anywhere on the map. The trade value of a prisoner or animal is based on their capabilities, injuries and skills.
