HWS Garage

This topic will contain a table of contents

HWS Garage is a very unique way of getting extremely special ships and is only available in certain locations and for some serious credits. These are ships you probably cannot find ANYWHERE else in the universe, and are coveted for their special abilities.
Most of them have Alien NPC Cores, CV components in SVs or a SV with HV Drills for example.

HWS Garage now offers 2 ranges; our legacy range and running along side it our new DX Space-Craft range aimed at the more fashion conscious player.

How does it work

As soon as you enter the HWS Garage zone you can buy a ship you want.

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

  • The ship credit price can be seen also in HWS Connect > HWS Garage
  • It cost you as many RP as you bought one ship already * 10
    Example: you bought the V-Wing 2 times and want to buy it a third time - this would cost you credits + 30 RP

IMPORTANT!: before you type cb:yes to buy a ship make ABSOLUTELY sure you are buying the correct one. Watch the chat VERY closely! Once bought, the ship needs to be moved IMMEDIATELY out of the purchasing zone otherwise it will be overwritten when the replacement spawns.

Locations

  • The HWS Garage is currently located on the ECC planet and in space. You can reach the two locations also via a Teleporter in the EGS HQ > HWS Garage room. On ECC planet, you can find Hover Vessels and Small Vessels. In space you can find CV’s.

  • In the HWS Garage HQ all HWS Garage Ships are free to enter. (Please make sure, that you remove the public 0000 - Code of all doors, ramps, shutter doors and hangar doors after your purchase.)

Warranty

Although you may modify your garage ship, HWS will no longer support that ship once altered from its original design.
Any damaged components, intentional or by accident can’t be restored or refunded as well.

NO REFUNDS - NO RETURNS.

However with the Repair Bay + Console you can repair your HWS Garage ship to a certain degree.
Keep in mind that everything which is over the limit (e.g. drills) are only restored to the server limits.

Initiative

If you have an awesome ship you want to share with the HWS Community there are some strict guidelines. The best you can do is to contact @Ju with details.

Otherwise there are some hints along your way:

  • your structure needs to have at least one of these Design attributes (which Ju will approve):

    • extra ordinary
    • unique
    • futuristic
    • aesthetic
    • convenient
    • smart
  • your structure needs to have “exposed thrusters” (thrusters which have no blocks behind them)

  • your structure needs to have Controller + Extension Container to meet the Mass & Volume standards

  • your structure needs to have the Category limits down below in mind
