Credits are the currency in The Universe. You can buy anything with them, and earn them too. Here's how to get them:

  • Trade items with NPC stations
  • Trade items with players
  • Kill someone on the bounty list
  • Attacking a vault
  • Selling items


You can use them for a lot of stuff too:

  • Buy a new ship (New or second-hand)
  • Repair your ship
  • Buy components
  • Buy fuel
  • Buy Ice
  • Buy a station
  • Hire a room
  • Hire a medical spawn point
  • And way more, but that depends on the players


When you start out in The Universe, you get a small amount of credits. It will mostly be used for fuel and ice, because The Aruma has no Ice or Uranium in it. Only a battery with 25% charge.
