The Improved Trading System is an installable System Upgrade.


The Trading System displays prices of goods in the sector, without having to open Trade Goods menus on stations. As the system's rarity increases, so do the advantages, including:

  • Price Ratios in the Sector
  • Trade Routes in the Sector
  • Trade Routes in the last # of Sectors
  • When the upgrade is installed permanently and is at least exceptional, you can see information about the supply/demand amounts when you are on the map. You can select the goods you're looking for in the upper left corner of the screen when looking on the map.
  • The different colours represent the amounts: low demand / high supply is shown blue; high demand / low supply red. You can also find that information in a info panel located in the trading screen.

When installed on a ship or station that has a captain, allows the player to give buy and sell orders to that ship/station from the galaxy map. For this usage, rarity does not matter.
