An in-depth explanation to the item system in RymdResa.
Every ship has six base item slots ( and two unlock-able slots). These can equipped with items you find in the game. Some of these items will require a certain ship others a free to use on any ship.
Items affect your ships statistics like: percentage to find items, quest bonus, speed increase, visual effect and shop styles. Some items have special properties that can affect your ship even further.
Every item has a quality level that range from useless to legendary. Finding an item with higher rank yield more and higher statistics bonus some only available at high level. Higher ranked items have better visual style ranging from only two colours to six colours items. Every item type have around nine to twenty icon styles per rank. With over 500 total icons in game.

Shields protect your ship from harmful impacts. Taking a direct hit in space lowers the shield but you won't lose any valuable resources. The shield recharge rate vary from item to item.

Orbs rotate around your ship often increasing stats like item finding and resources. Orbs live a life off its own and reacts when you take damage or find something good. Each item has a random chance to increase different type of statistics off your ship like acceleration, resources, quest bonuses. Legendary items can have special properties changing the fundamentals of an item. Finding an legendary item is extremely rare.
All items can be found from exploring, quests, special objects, shops, crafting, directly found floating in space and from using special items. Some items might even be guarded by rock formations or worse!Certain dangerous zones have a higher chance of spawning better items.
Apart from equippable items in RymdResa there is consumable items. These items can only be used once after that you need to find another one, but you can carry a big amount of each. You have 4 active consumable slots on your ship these items can then be used in space. Most of them are made to help you on your journey others might even be used as currency.
A special consumable item used for fast travelling home in chapter two and three. Have a small chance of overheating and warping you someplace else!
RymdResa has a minimal crafting system that revolves around throwing items away. Once your inventory fills up you can't pickup more items. But you can destroy them and in return get some "scrap-points". How many points you get per item varies depending on the quality, rareness and statistics of the item. When you reach 1000 scrap-points you a crafted item is created. The crafted item can be any type of item. These crafted items have a the potential to be almost as good as legendary items. Often better then unique items, they also have the same chance of a mysterious stats like legendary items have. These items cannot be found in space.
May the luck be with you!
