Queston about... trading and delivery of items

Recommended Posts

When you trade for items, is it available IMMEDIATELY? Or is there a delay involved? Or do I just have to wait until the clock ticks over by another minute to update?

The reason I'm asking is I purchased shield upgrade for my Warmonger. I went to craft/CC to install it. When I tried to select UPGRADE, it's blacked out. Can't do it. I went into CARGO, it ain't there either. I had to undock from the station to get the upgrade started. (And yes, I'm sure I got the compatible model)

Was I merely impatient? I remember I DID do it this way before with the Titanium V armor upgrade... And I didn't have to undock...

yes, this is a common problem, heavily related anywhere on this forum.

You MUST be in space to upgrade !!! NOT in station !

Hmmm... Once I got the upgrade "started", I have no problem docking, then let the starbase personnel finish the job... But I apologize for this FAQ. I'll be sure to add it to this list of FAQs I'm compiling.

This is because, in the single player, time does not pass when you are docked. If it did, you'd have some serious problems e.g. a repair which would take one hour - WILL - require you to be docked at the station for one full hour. Instead when you launch, the times are re-calculated. This was done for gameplay reasons.
