The Orbital Cargo Drone is an HWS exclusive feature and it is arguably the most useful tool available to players. With the Orbital Cargo Drone (OCD), a player can store their assets (some restrictions apply) in a virtual Cargo Box accessible via the HWS Connect interface or in-game commands. Items stored here are safe and they persist through wipes! (*see note at bottom of this section)
Note: You have to log in for HWS Connect to actually update. Otherwise, things like Structure Commander might show the wrong info.
There are 10 upgrade levels determining the cost of each level, the slot count, and the number of items that can be stored in each slot.
See details below.
Note: This video is some years old and slightly outdated. Not everything said in the video still applies.
Example: If there are 999 Fusion Cells your hand-slot 1 and 500 Fusion Cells in your hand-slot 2 you can type ocd:put:1, wait 10 seconds, and then type ocd:put:2. Within a minute or so, you can check online on HWS Connect to confirm that you now have 1499 Fusion Cells in OCD Slot 1 - if it was empty when you entered the command. The items are then available for withdrawal when the player chooses to GET them.
Hint: You may also type ocd:put in faction chat to pull up a deposit interface or use HWS Connect for easy access
Visit https://cmd.hws.global or check your PDA > Guide > HWS Commands or type ocd:? for all available commands
Patrons have more OCD features and commands!
On HWS RE OCD works a bit differently to be more aligned with the spirit of the Scenario.
That means OCD, no matter your level, will only work in the OCD Zones, no matter what it states elsewhere on this page.
For now, there are 2, on the ECC Planet at the EGS HQ POI and in ECC Sector at the EGS HQ Outpost.
OCD Categories are also different and to be set yet since the Block IDs are different from EU/NA. As soon as we have categories for it, we will announce it.

Note: We might change / rearrange items / categories over time
Note: Trade commodities, regardless of rarity, and damaged weapons/armors cannot be put into the OCD at ANY level.
Note: Boosters inside Armors, which you put in the OCD, won’t be saved. Put the Boosters out of your Armor before you put your Armor in your OCD.
Like mentioned up top on the page, OCD can only be used in OCD Zones on the HWS Reforged Eden server.

Most of the times you need to be inside an OCD Zone to be able to retrieve and put your items into the OCD.
Such Zones are invisible for now and have different sizes from location to location.
The most popular OCD Zone location is at the EGS HQ and EGS HQ Outpost in the Homeworld PvE System > ECC Sector.
We also offer a convenience Support Package, where you can automatically create your own OCD Zone around your own Base Structure.
Once bought, you go to your desired Base that should have the OCD Zone around it and type:
do:oz:id (id = your Base ID, found in HWS Connect > Structure Commander or with console command: “di”)
- if the base is removed, your OCD Zone is removed too
- the zone area is about 50x50x50 around your Core
- you can buy unlimited OCD Zones and stash them until usage
- every player can use this OCD Zone, you can’t limit the usage to you or your faction
- the OCD Zone can only be created in a PvE playfield
- the zone can’t overlap with other zones such as a Recycle Zone for example
With the new HWS Connect update, you can manage your OCD much easier.
You can get items, sell items, and see how close your slots are to be full easily.
You can also enable Grid view for the Structure commander, or in the HWS Garage page.
- Make sure to not put weapons with ammo in the OCD. The ammo will not be stored in the OCD.
Note: At the owner/admin’s discretion, some items may be removed or reduced between seasonal wipes in the interest of balancing gameplay or for other reasons.
