Orbital Cargo Drone (OCD)

This topic will contain a table of contents

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 ingame commands. Items stored here are safe and they persist through wipes ! (*see note at bottom of this section)

Note: You have to login for HWS Connect to actually update. Otherwise things like Structure Commander might show 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.

OCD Zone

Note: OCD Zones are available at multiple locations.
Example: Blackmarket in HQ Orbits, ECC EGS HQ, OCD Outposts on the Cryo Planet

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


Grid/Backpack View

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.

Backpack View

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.

Note: You can request a complete OCD wipe to start fresh again, without your old items, which might spoil your gameplay. Just contact @Jascha or @RexXxuS
