Resource Supply Run[edit | edit source]

Resource Supply Run Fleets are special fleets that carry large amounts of a particular resource with small amounts of the other two from place to place during supply runs, which run for 1 hour every 3 hours.

There are 3 types of resource supply runs - one for each resource. The ratio of resources dropped depends on the type of resource supply run that is occurring. For example, a Helium-3 Supply Run would drop more Helium-3 but less Mineral Ore and Antimatter, and so on so forth.

Supply Run fleets spawn from resource fields and travel to Processing Complexes in the same planet.

When defeated, resources are dropped in a 70/15/15 ratio, the former being the main resource drop.

There was a bug that caused the names below the icons of the Resource Supply Run fleets to be displayed incorrectly when they spawned in the Residential Sector.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

These targets drop crafting materials for non-dreadnought ships. They spawn from resource fields and travel to Processing Complexes in the same planet.

The crafting boxes do not have weighted drops, so it is equally likely to obtain a Mk II pattern as a Mk V pattern.

Only Iron Star Raiders (60) is active as of current.

Crafting Supply Run[edit | edit source]

These targets drop crafting materials for non-dreadnought ships at much higher rates than crafting fleets during the Supply Run sector activity, which runs for 1 hour every 3 hours. Supply Run fleets have a different icon to distinguish them from crafting fleets.

Supply Run fleets spawn from resource fields and travel to Processing Complexes in the same planet.

When defeated, a crafting box is dropped. This box contains a predefined amount of armaments and parts for a specified hull. The remaining drop is either a core or a pattern. Do note that unlike those of regular crafting fleets, this drop is heavily weighted towards less valuable items. Carrier boxes of Tier 4 or below instead drop one of the aforementioned items at random.

Note that all supply run types use the same two fleets which alternate between each supply run.

The name of the supply run fleet changes with the type of supply run that is ongoing.

Supply Run Fleet Name Hull
Cruiser Iron Star Cruiser Supplies Heretic Cruiser
Frigate Iron Star Frigate Supplies Hurricane Frigate
Battleship Iron Star Battleship Supplies Vigilante Battleship
Destroyer Iron Star Destroyer Supplies Machete Destroyer
Cutter Iron Star Cutter Supplies Python Cutter
Carrier Iron Star Carrier Supplies Freyja Carrier

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Originally, the crafting fleets were named as follows, but as of the early March 2018 update, the names have been standardized to the respective hull classes:
  • When resource supply runs first came out, they only had normal resource drops, defeating their purpose. KIXEYE removed them to fix the issue and later turned them back on when done.
  • There are only 2 types of crafting supply run fleets for Iron Star and Demon Corps, and they do not follow the general idea of having upgraded variants of the hulls, unlike previous fleets.
  • Iron Star crafting and supply run targets originally spawned in sector space. The vast majority of the crafting targets have been removed while the supply run targets have been relocated to in-planet shortly after the late August 2019 update.
