The Cargo Hold is a tool in the Space Stage which is used to carry spice, plants, animals and treasures. It is available at the start of the stage, featuring in the beginning tutorial. Items can be added to the cargo hold by purchasing them or capturing them using the abduction beam. It's almost necessary to upgrade your cargo hold if terraforming or searching for treasures, as these tasks can use a lot of room.

Usage[]

The cargo hold has its own section in the tools menu. Selecting this allows you to see the goods inside. The Abduction Beam may be selected here to add more to the cargo hold, or an object can be selected and released from the cargo hold. Dropping animals from the cargo hold will kill them, so beam them down gently until they touch the ground.

  • The Grox cannot be abducted into the cargo hold. If you attempt to do so, the Grox will be incinerated and the game states they are 'too toxic for your cargo hold'.
  • It's unknown how the cargo hold can store so much, but it's thought that stored objects are shrunk. This is made apparent because the object gets smaller as it approaches the ship.
