HWS Connect | Orbital Cargo Drone (OCD)



The Orbital Cargo Drone is an ultimate and exclusive feature to HWS where you can store your inventory from your player into a virtual Cargo Box maintained using the external tool: the Orbital Cargo Drone. Your items are safe there and you can get them at special conditions. There are seven upgrade levels determining the slot count, and number of items per slot. The OCD should be considered a safe deposit vault, rather than a magical backpack, and as such may only be accessed in PVE Playfields (other than starter) using specific commands in faction chat. See charts below.

Example: if you have 999 Large Fuel Packs in your hand-slot 1 and 500 Large Fuel Packs in your hand-slot 2 you can type ocd:put:1 and then 10 seconds later ocd:put:2. Then you can check online on HWS Connect after approximately 15 minutes that in your slot 1 of OCD you have 1499 Large Fuel Packs. The items are available for withdrawal immediately, this time is simply for the website to update.

  • You may also type ocd:put in faction chat in order to pull up a deposit interface. Anything placed in this virtual box will attempt to be placed into the OCD. If there are restricted items or there is not enough room, the interface will re-open and return these items. If you are moving large amounts of items, placing the first item in the bottom right box will then allow you to shift move stacks into this interface.
