It can dynamically balance the supply and demand of cargo between planets, and consumes space warper can activate warp.
Logistics Vessels are loaded into Interstellar Logistics Stations. Their cargo capacity is upgradable from 200 items to maximum of 1000 items at Logistics Carrier Capacity VIII.
Logistics Vessels base speed is 600 m/s. This is infinitely upgradable with the Logistics Carrier Engine Upgrades, with each level from level III providing a 50% increase on the base speed.
Logistics Carrier Engine IV is required for Vessels to use Warp. Warp confers a x200 increase in speed. Logistics Vessels will jump to and leave warp at 2.5 km from the planet. When using warp a Logistics Vessel will use two Space Warpers, one to get to the destination, and another one to get back to the origin.
Player Tips & Tricks
- The ability to warp is very valuable, however, it's not always necessary. If you can have a small-ish Interstellar route (<3-5 LY), it's OK to have your logistic vessels slow-boat it (takes 10-20min with reasonable engine upgrades) to your target world. This is useful especially on rare raw materials or goods that are otherwise, 'not worth the space warper. With a sufficient qty of Logistic Vessels the same throughput can be achieved as a smaller qty of vessels equipped with space warpers.
- Logistics Vessels after significant upgrade, can become very fast; even making reasonable trips between nearby stars without warpers. At Logistic Carrier Engine VII, the flight speed is 2100 m/s and it's warp speed is 0.18 LY/s. You may continue to upgrade further at a cost of greatly increasing (WHITE) Universe Matrix Cubes for +50% speed to both attributes per additional level.
