Five kinds of interchangeable items enhancing the capabilities of all classes of spaceships:
Thrusters are the engines of your vehicle - you need at least one to fly. They vary in terms of size, mass and output delivered.
They can be stacked together to achieve better speeds and accelerations, which translates to less time spent in-travel and less chance of getting caught off guard.
Don't want to float with your boat? Get yourself a biggie, or a few...
Beamers are the means to make your statement in space. They come in variety of size, mass and amount of damage they deal.
Whether you play on the offense or defense - the bigger the gun the better. Don't let yourself be outgunned - bring more beamers for extra fun.
Shields are your first line of defence when being fired upon. They will keep your spaceship intact until depleted. After that, it will start taking structural damage.
Shield are produced by the shield generators that vary in terms of capacity, size, mass and recharge speed. Obviously, the greater capacity and shorter recharge speed, the better.
These are the varying types of cargo containers and other items useful for trade.
The more cargo containers you posess, the more cargo you can take onboard - this means less flights, less attention and less risk of being detected and intercepted.
All GSS' spacecrafts are equipped with basic radar to ensure the visibility of objects that are not within sight range.
You can expand the radar's range and sensitivity by installing an extra radar plate on your ship - this will give you better orientation in space distance-wise, and will provide you with more detailed information about the detectable objects.
Currently, there are six types of spaceships available:
Each kind of the vehicle is better suited to complete a set of specific types of missions.
Your space reputation depends exclusively on the actions you take, and what role you take in the events happening in the world. You'll find here many friendly
pilots to cooperate with, but also space pirates that bring chaos and destruction.

Like a space sim, but unlike any other space sim:
