Also your ships have generators, radiators, weapons, engines, cargo bays or life support systems. All of these work together. So that means that every thruster on your ship plays a role. Which also means aiming for engines will pin down your enemies. Or just send them spinning around by destroying power stations.
Since most ships have more than thirty individual parts. You can customize the most important parts of your ships. So things like your main engines, attitude control thrusters, weapons and hull colors.

Your competitors are independent factions. These are companies with the same goal as yours – ruling the system. So they will try to undercut you, or even attack you if you become a threat to them.
But don’t be too quick to destroy them, as war can break the supply of resources you depend on. While attacking freighters will destroy resources, with the potential to cause an economic crisis.
