I have googled this to no avail!


I see that you can dismount a piece of equipment for one token and, if you wish, then sell the equipment for credits. However, If you were to sell a plane with mounted equipment, does the equipment go to the depot or is it sold for credits along with the plane? In either case, does it cost you a token?


Basically, I have a plane with a sight on it; I plan to sell the plane and use the sight on another craft. I was trying to avoid using a token to dismount it first if there was another game mechanic in place that would save me the token.


Thanks :)

You will be offered a sell screen with boxes to tick on what "to move to depot". For sights etc, it would cost Tokens. 1 to 4 depending on the level of upgrade.


Can't go around it.

I tested an empty Tier I plane, bought a visual sight and upgraded the sight to level II.
That was 10 mech parts and 1 instruments and some Credits.
I checked what I get when I dismantle the equipment (lowest topic in the option list clicking right on the sight)
They "pay back" 8 mechs and 1 instrument and no credits
You get the same back to your materials depot when you sell the plane as zen_monk explains above.
Costs you 2 mech parts and some credits but no token.

Feel free to check this with ultimative equipment :coin:

Ah thank you both. - I hadn't noticed the dismantle option  - doh.  Will see which option makes most sense for my situation - i.e. do I need parts or tokens more. Parts seem to come in pretty freely but tokens (for me at this point) don't, so I'll probably just go for the dismantle option more often than not.


Cheers :)
