can’t believe it myself but finally I updated every HWS NPC Trader on NA and EU.
It took me long, too long and always got pushed away by other things but that won’t happen again. I found a fast future ready workflow. However due the integration of HWS NPC Trader into real NPC Trader a lot of people don’t know how they work I think.
HWS NPC Trader versus NPC Trader
First of all: HWS NPC Trader are only available with a donation.
Then you have to check the information page for that donation:
Or just that page for full info as stated:
It allows you basically to sell a lot of items to other players without the need of supply the NPC Trader by yourself. On the other side you get 50% of the whole money straight into your bank.
NPC Trader Mall
In the NPC Trader Mall you see default NPC Traders now. The thing is that you can’t buy the items you see there with the normal way you are used to be. You see neither Cash nor Bank is accepted as pay options.
Instead read the info from the NPC Trader (yeah a bit small):
It is basically again an unique HWS feature you can use with the command
It cost credits and RP, depending on the offered package.
The best way to check how much it cost and where you can find what package exactly is in easy visible in HWS Connect
There you see the color code. Each shop area has outside the parent color and inside of the four shop section the child color. (also represented by the color of the RP and Credit cost). That way you always know where to go.
The only “issue” is that there can only be 16 NPC Trader in the NPC Trader Mall and it is full already (thanks to all supporters!).
However some HWS NPC Trader Owners are not playing anymore and if we see that one of them not played at least once per season the slot will be free again.
If the Mall is full and you still want to have one you are free to have your custom shop somewhere else (not in ECC, ECC Space, Starter Systems or CSW however).
For example on your donator planet or even PvP playfields.
For PvP playfields you can let your shop be equipped with an admin core for an one time fee of 50k credits.
Selling player ships
If room is available you can also sell your small ships on one of the eight platforms by the NPC Trader Mall.
For that you can use the command
Overall it is one of the most advanced donation option and process, maybe to complicate but after diving into it a bit an awesome way to earn additional credits passively.
Thanks everyone for that way of support and sorry that it took so long to migrate it.
P.S.: I just migrated the old template to the new one. If you want to change your template PM me.
