Welcome to the Store! Wait, there's a store? Yes, Kinetic Void has a store that you can go to in order to buy additional parts for your ship, including consumables such as ammunition. The guide I am going into today is using D10 content, meaning that parts may become out of date once our next couple of patches roll out.
The store and station inventory serves 2 functions, the first of which is equipping your ship (specifically in Career/Survival mode) with ammo. The second goal is for you to use various station's inventory to trade between factions and eventually earn income.
With that being said, let's get started!
Kinetic Void Store
Beginning in the Shipyard (Station) you have access to that particular station's Store. To access the store, look in the lower right corner of the screen and press the Store button. Once you click on the Store button, you'll see a screen open like that below. Click the checkbox on the right that says "Trade Goods" Once you click Trade Goods, you'll see ammo and ore pop up in the right hand side of the screen. This is the store inventory (not your station inventory) and shows what is available to buy in that given category. Below is an image of the Trade Goods available to be purchased (I expanded the image of the ammo options. Each ammo option fits a different weapon type. Kinetic Ammo: (3 bullets): Kinetic weapons tend to fire in bursts, with a delay between sets of bursts. Guided Missile: (crosshair over missile icon) explosive damage, tends to fire individual rounds with a delay between each round. Non-Guided Missile: (missile icon) explosive damage, tends to fire individual rounds with a delay between each round in a straight direction. Click on the icon of the ammo you wish to purchase, and you'll see it drop into your shopping cart (center column) As you click and move items into your cart, the Price at the bottom of the screen will start to increase. If you have more money (Credits) than the Price, you can make the Deal and purchase the ammo. Next up, moving the ammo to your ship.
Kinetic Void Inventory
Buying items from the store is the first step in getting new things for your ship and ammo to shoot enemies (career mode specific, ammo is unlimited in creative mode).
Once you have items purchased, click on the Inventory button (right next to the Store button) on the lower right corner of the screen. You'll see a pop up such as this image: The items on the right are what's in your Station's Inventory at this time. The items on the left are what's in your Ship's Inventory. Click the items in either window to move them to the other. In the example below, we are moving items from the Station Inventory over to the Ship's Inventory. -- Once items are placed into your ship's inventory, so long as you have enough Cargo Space, you can begin using them in the shipyard or in sector respectively.
Any Ship Part or Subsystem purchased from the store that moves into the station's inventory (and then moved to the ship's inventory) will be available through the Shipyard Available Modules (for modules) or under the right click option if it is a subsystem.
