3. A ship!
Any working ship will do. I’d recommend heaps of power and battery storage to boost away from trouble and to power your hyperdrive fully. Good thrust and break thrust is always helpful.
Trade and cargo space upgrades are always helpful.
Percentage of cargo space increases are better because of how little they drain your energy.
It’s not necessary to have heaps of cargo space. Some items have different volumes. It’s up to you what you want to trade and the factories that spawn in colonized sectors around you.
You can either trade-in quantity or quality. I’ll talk about this later.

4. Exploring your galaxy
Before we attempt to trade, you should explore sectors around you. Loop through warp gates and keep a note of what factories you encounter. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.
Trading also increases rep with factions.
Once you have explored and equipped your ship for trading, let’s find a trading route.
How to trade
A giant wall of text
Let’s get down to business.
What is trading?
Trading is where we source an item from a factory or a trading post. And then locate another factory or station that we can sell it to for a profit. It’s always better to source the item from a factory. I shall call the items we buy of stations to sell inputs.
Outputs are what a factory produces(what they sell to YOU or others)
Factories are usually named after the item, factory name, and size of the factory.
For example, Steel Factory L
Steel factory large
(Larger factories mean more cargo spaces)
Why do I call them outputs or Inputs?
Because factories that need items to function only buy and sell. What they buy from YOU is an input and what they produce from the INPUTS is an output.
Not all factories need items to produce. There are basic tier 1 factory and fundable mines that don’t need any items to produce only cargo.
Okay, now all the inputs and outputs ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ are done, let’s get right into the news.
Trading is basically finding an item that is a requirement for building another item and selling it for a profit.
Because the factory needs the item to function, it will buy it for more than you bought it for, thus making a profit.
The prices always change, varying to how much the stock of the item is and the demand. Having a higher stock of an item means it will buy it from you for lower amounts. Having a low stock of an item will cause the factory to buy it from you for higher.
Basic trade knowledge.
This also affects the output of the factory. Having more of an item to sell will decrease the price because they want to sell the item fast. The lower stock of output will cause it to increase in price because they want to keep them.
Explain it already
With a trading module or of the use of the wiki page. We can find what specific items are produced and sold to other factories. Thus making a profit from buying and selling in between factories, as I said earlier.

In the video tutorial, I found a laser head factory that needs an input of conductors(from a conductor factory) and would buy them for 80cr and sell them to the laser head factory for 120cr.
So I found the conductor factory, Docked with it. And I bought the required items. And then warped back to the Laser Head factory to sold the conductors to it.
That’s 40cr per item profit(Will change depending on stock counts and the demand for the item)
I sold 1833 conductors for 120cr each for a total profit for this run, 73,000 credits.
The factory was almost maxed the cargo limit and didn’t buy them for much. But I still made a profit regardless.
But! 73k is bad money.
73. for about 10 minutes of semi afk work isn’t much compared to sell body armors for 15-30k profit per item. For around 50m a run.
Trade whatever items are in your price range.
I only sold about 75% of my cargo because the station was at the max cargo limit.
These are my player build stations; you don’t get paid for trading with your own stations.
In my video, I go over how to build your own briefly.
Good items to trade
- Energy Cells — You can sell these to heaps of factories. They are worth trading in high amounts and are produced for free.
- Processors – Shipyards, repair docks, and other factories buy these. They don’t have much volume and trade around 7k per item.
- Body Armors – The best item to trade in the game. I buy them from a trading station for 70k each and can only be sold to military outputs for about 100k each.
- Displays – Like processors can be sold to Shipyards and repair docks.
- Electron Accelerator OR Neutron Accelerator OR Proton Accelerator — They sell for ALOT. And usually traded a lot of end game. THEY ONLY SELL TO RESEARCH STATIONS
- Vehicle – Like body armors, they can be sold only to military outposts, And there are lots of them, so finding them isn’t hard.
Read the wiki for more information.
I’ve done a trading run; what’s next?
Well, that’s up to you. With more money now, you can buy more and upgrade your ship to carry more items and make more profits on a trading run.
Or you can find something else to trade.
Factories ONLY work when an active player is in the sector.
Keep in mind the stock of the factories you buy and sell to. In the tutorial video, I couldn’t sell all my items because the factory’s stock was maxed.
YOU CANT DO THIS FOREVER
Eventually, the factory you’re buying to or selling to runs out of items or cant hold enough. And the profit ends. ALWAYS CHECK THIS.
In that case, find another factory.
Well, I now have millions. What next.
I honestly don’t know. I use a lot of money making turrets from turret factories.
I will not be covering this because ♥♥♥♥ I’m too tired and hungry.
You can either
- Buy resources from Resource Depots and build a fleet.
- Purchase a factory and start trading from your own factories
- Buy the 3mil Xsotan Artifact needed for the main quest line from traveling equipment merchants.
- MORE TRADING RUNS AND MORE MONEY

My English is evil. Hopefully, it makes sense.
Roasting the guide is ACCEPTABLE.
