To support and manage the monthly server cost of $450, we implemented Supporter Planets and Supporter Spaces to provide players with a helpful and meaningful way of saying “Thank You”.

Contact @RexXxuS for further details / info / inquiries


3 Month Lifespan

The typical runtime of a Supporter Playfield is 3 months minimum. Regardless of seasons or wipes, we guarantee a 90 day lifespan of your Supporter Playfield.

A Full Wipe will result in your Supporter Playfield being wiped as well, so try to align the timing of your support with the season cycle to get most out of it. If a player acquires a Supporter Planet/Space with only one month remaining in the season, they would still enjoy 2 more months on their Supporter Planet/Space during the next season.

If a player wants to keep their Supporter Playfield after its usual lifespan, they must re-support. HWS needs to plan the next season well in advance, so whether you do or do not plan on keeping your Supporter planet / space, be sure to let @RexXxus know your plans for the next season.

Players who wish to support for a playfield to be spawned under special conditions such as obtaining a planet for a period less than 90 days or under other unique conditions, need to discuss their proposal privately with @RexXxus on a case-by-case basis.

Good to Know

  • Stargates / Teleporters are not allowed unless you have an Event Planet / Event Space playfield or via special request
  • Each faction is allowed a maximum of 1 Planet and / or 1 Space
  • Supporter Planet / Space for one person is only possible, if there are enough slots available.
  • You can request your own POI on the Planet / Space or Freighter / AI Vessels in Space if it doesn’t break normal gameplay (e.g. insane loot) - min. reset time is daily.
  • You can choose to have an indestructible surface on the planet (digging is not possible, but this is good for playfield performance)
  • Plant types, NPCs, and Drones can be requested in moderate quantity
  • You may request any type of weather, gravity strength, biome type, water color / sea level, etc.
  • Ingame NPC Trader / Trading Stations / EB or EGS Zones are not allowed if you have a restricted Planet / Space. If your planet allows player access, such requests for these types of POIs will be considered.

Supergate Orbit Layout


The spirit of supporting is to help with server costs and thereby enhance gameplay for all players. HWS is intent on not being a ‘pay-to-win’ server. Therefore, the owner/admins will ensure that the current meta fits this goal and they reserve the right to adjust support packages if necessary.

Disclaimer: since Supporter Planets / Spaces can have a massive impact on the overall universe / gameplay for all players, they are subject to possible changes to their conditions and content. This is also true for every other support package. That being said, we try our best to provide a balanced and unique experience.

Thank you so much for supporting us. It is truly appreciated!
