|Standard starship fuel on which interstellar civilization relies. Composed of anti-matter trapped in fullerine shells mixed in a semi-stable foam with heavy isotopes of hydrogen. Fairly safe.|
Fuel is an important resource required for hyperspace travel, traversing between hyperspace & real space and also the Emergency Burn & Transverse Jump abilities. Fuel is not consumed when stationary in hyperspace.
Running out of fuel will disable those abilities, traversing to hyperspace and any fleets in hyperspace will be slowly pulled into the nearest gravity well. Ships can be scuttled as an emergency measure to recover fuel equal to their monthly supply cost.
Some worlds are particularly notable for large scale fuel production at cheap prices, in particular the Sindrian Diktat homeworld of Sindria, in Askonia.Up to date for version 0.8.1a-RC8
