HWS Marketplace

The HWS Marketplace (Elemental Trading & Black Market) concept was originally developed by HWS and was adopted by Eleon into the official version of Empyrion to some degree.

HWS Sale Discounts

Prices fluctuate throughout the season, but most sellers do not update their prices accordingly, so there is an automated sale/discount feature implemented:

The item unit price is dropped

  • by 25% after 15 days

  • by 50% (of the previous value) after 30 days

  • by 75% (of the previous value) after 60 days

These automated discounts ensure that an item for sale increases its bargain value over time.

Full wipe disclaimer

Be sure to get all your items from the EGS Market & Blackmarket before a full wipe.

Sell Your Ships

You can sell your own ships at these locations:

ECC > EGS HQ > in the Garage Zone (SVs)

ECC System > HWS Garage HQ POI (CVs)

The process requires that you fly your ship to one of the zones mentioned above, wait for the confirmation / welcome message, and then type ts:sell:xxx (xxx = amount of credits you are charging for that ship)

  • Ships you sell are not taxed for being in the area

  • If you fly the ship you have available for sale, it remains tracked by the HWS Connect Structure Commander and is therefore still taxed when left on ECC. Once it is tagged for sale, do not fly it on or off of ECC afterwards.
