Asteroid size directly impacts its buildable area. The smallest asteroids have less than 20 buildable lots, whereas the largest have hundreds of thousands. Choose wisely to support your style of play. Small asteroids are great if you're playing solo, or want to take on specific roles within an alliance, whereas Large or Huge asteroids are a must for big alliances and highly social gameplay.

The asteroids in Adalia orbit with realistic orbital mechanics, so it's important to understand how orbital elements affect the position of your asteroid(s). There are six Keplerian orbital elements that define the current position of an asteroid at any time. The most important of those are inclination, eccentricity, orbital period, and semi-major axis.

SWAY is the lifeblood of the Adalian economy. To help guide your purchase during the Prepare for Launch sale, below are projections of the relative purchasing power of SWAY in the first few weeks after launch. As the Adalian market is player-controlled and operated, these are strictly estimates and their accuracy should NOT be strictly relied on.
*NOTE: Ships are likely to be significantly supply constrained at launch and therefore experience significant price variance.
