A Freighter is a colossal interstellar starship; much like a cross between a traditional ship and a space station.
Players can purchase a freighter from the bridge of said freighter by talking to the captain. Players will gain a discount if they saved that freighter from pirates beforehand. The first freighter you purchase in this manner will be offered to the player for free.
Players can build a mobile base on the freighter, consisting of up to 16 floors of 21 x 21 rooms.
The freighter can warp to other star systems or be summoned to the orbit of the planet (or moon), where the player is currently located.
It also allows the player to access any of their owned starships on board.
There are several regular freighters with up to 19 slots of inventory and two designs of small, medium, and large visual sizes for capital freighters with up to 34 slots. One of them is reminiscent of the Venator Star Destroyer of the Star Wars universe. Freighter slots can be expanded to 60 tech and 120 cargo.
To buy a Freighter, board it and speak to the Captain. Saving a Freighter from Pirates will make it cheaper.
When on a planet, summon your freighter to your current system with the Quick Menu [Key X].
Players with freighters may own up to nine starships; six of which will show up on the freighter (and can be switched with the remaining three using the quick menu). Purchase ships as they fly into the freighter’s docking bay to store them onboard.
The freighter offers advanced warp capability. Use the map on the bridge to access the Galaxy Map.
Freighters offer large inventories. Slots on freighters can store larger stacks than any other inventory type.
Transfer items to your freighter from your inventory using [Key X]. To retrieve stored objects, speak to the Captain. Larger, more expensive freighters offer the largest inventories.
Freighters allow onboard construction. Place base building parts in the designated construction area to make a portable base. Place Storage Containers for extra inventory space.
