Ships

From Trillek Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Ships will play a key role in Trillek. They are the primary means of transportation, and they are where most of the gameplay takes place. Each ship has the ability to be unique from any other via Customizable Ships and creativity of the player.

Players will travel from area to area: exploiting natural resources, going from station to station, and in general make their living in their ship. Ships can be one person or by large Ship Crews.
