Description Trade Outpost

The Trading Posts are a type of planetary Point of Interest.

Summary[]

Similar to space stations, trading posts feature a Galactic Trade Terminal and seven Landing Pads where starships can land. In the main section, the player can find 3-6 NPCs of that system's dominant faction, and, in rare occasions, a Traveller.

Cargo Drops can be found near the landing pads and in the lower sections of the Trading Post.

Locating[]

Trading posts can be found by using the starship's Economy Scanner, asking an alien NPC for directions, or by pure exploration.

Trade routes[]

Following Trade routes or starships in space or in a planet's atmosphere can lead the player to a trading post.

Prices and tradeables[]

Prices and tradeables at trading posts can differ from the system's space station. Trading posts seem to offer far fewer resources (Ex: Ferrite Dust) than Space stations, but more rare items for a cheaper price.

Missions[]

Delivery missions will ask the player to deliver a certain resource or tradeable to a trading post in that system. Once there, the player has to enter the post's Galactic Trade Terminal in order to complete the mission.

Another mission that includes a trip to a trade outpost is the high-rank variant of the Find Missing Person.
