After every Battle there is Scrap left in space. This Scrap can be harvested and recycled into useful resources. To do so a player must send a Recycling flight to the coordinates of the Scrap. The recycling field contains the lost ships and machinery from both sides in a Battle.
When the recycling fleet arrives at the target coordinates, it harvests the field. If Recycling a Planet’s coordinates, there is no contact between the recycling fleet and the ships and defense on the Planet. There is no Battle.
- Recycling can only be done by one of the ships Recycler/ Tanker/ Recycle Drone;
- The recycling ships must be sent in a separate flight from the attacking one, with a “Recycle” type mission. If you send them on an “Attack” mission with the rest of the fleet, they will participate in the Battle, but they will not gather the recycle field;
- When you recycle your own coordinates, travel time is a constant. The difference between base speeds does not apply. The same goes for the Sciences which affect speed;
- Note: All resources loaded on to ships sent on a Recycling mission will disappear!!!
