Economy determines a system's wealth.
Summary[edit | edit source]
In the Galactic Map you cannot tell what type of economy a system has unless you have an Economy Scanner or you warp to it. You can purchase an Economy Scanner by summoning the Space Anomaly and from the Iteration: Hyperion.
A system's economy can be sorted with various types of economy and also galactic average stats. An S will show what the galactic average is for selling items, while B will show what the galactic average is for buying items.
Wealth[edit | edit source]
Low wealth systems are common, medium wealth are uncommon, and high wealth systems are rare.
Higher wealth systems have a higher chance to spawn S-class starships.
Low wealth types (common)[edit | edit source]
- Low Supply
Medium wealth types (uncommon)[edit | edit source]
- Medium Supply
High wealth types (rare)[edit | edit source]
- High Supply
Types of economy[edit | edit source]
There are seven types of economy and every system has one. The type of economy that a system has will not affect its economic status nor its S/B stats. Each system also has its own "icon" depending on its economy type:
|Icon||Producing Economy||Economy Names||Commodity Type||Tiers|
|Trade Route A|
|Advanced Materials Economy||Material Fusion
|Advanced Construction Materials|
|Trade Route B|
|Technology Economy||High Tech
|Power Generation Economy||Power Generation
|Tradable Energy Source|
Trade Routes[edit | edit source]
Trade routes are generally categorized into three or four-way routes between systems. Resources replenish slowly and the fulfilled demand at a target lowers the price for consecutive sales. Compared to planetary trade ports, the local space station usually offers the worst prices, but has its own supply and demand in return.
