|The Simcountry Galaxy
Click on the space screen after you login.
|It shows the 5 Simcountry worlds, many space stations and some shuttles.
|Most of the time, you also see cargo shuttles moving products between worlds and markets.
There are many space stations where products can be traded.
|Space stations have 100 docking stations each where products can be kept before and after trading.
|Each space station is used for the trading of a specific group of products but can be used for storage of any product.
Cargo Shuttles are the main vehicle in space and are used for the transport of all products.
|Cargo shuttles can be produced by large corporations in all the worlds and are traded on the direct trading market.
|Each Cargo shuttle can transport up to 100.000 units. Shuttle age in time and the number of missions depends on their quality.
Space markets are located on space stations across our galaxy.

|Players can purchase these docking stations for 200 gold coins or rent them for 5 gold coins per month.
|A docking station can store 1.000.000 units. This is equal to ten fully loaded cargo shuttles. Only stored products can be offered on the market.
