Elemental Bank (EB)

This topic will contain a table of contents

HWS has an active Economy and players are allowed to store their credits independently from the game. This convenient and valuable feature is called the Elemental Bank.

Credits are very important because they allow players to purchase increasing levels of HWS features such as the Orbital Cargo Drone, Reputation Points from EGS, NoGuilty status, EGS Recycle Levels, Orbital Autominer upgrades, HWS Garage ships and more.

The main branch of the bank is located in the Elemental Capital City (ECC). Explore the universe and/or the HWS Guide to learn of other bank branch locations.

Visit https://cmd.hws.global or check your PDA > Guide > HWS Commands or type eb:? for all available commands

Make sure to stay in the Bank Zone for transactions if you don’t have the proper EB Level

Send credits to other players

You can instantly transfer Bank credits to other players (they must be online) by using their exact name (case sensitive) or their bank account number. (find this number with the command eb:info)

Examples
eb:send:12345:4500 = send player with account number 12345 4,500 credits.
eb:send:StarCitizen:4500 would work as well. (eb:send:starcitizen:4500 would result in an error)

Hint: Use HWS Connect for easy access

Faction Bank

To enhance the economy also within factions it’s possible for you to store your credits in a “Faction Elemental Bank” - only per season though! (Credits stored in the FEB are wiped after a full wipe)

The permission system is adapted from the game:

  • Owner & Admins can pay in and out
  • Member can only pay in

Type eb:? In-game for more information.
