Step 5 - Buying Fleets

Now we're back to finishing the fleets. To begin assembling our fleet, we need to purchase the hull design we created first. To do this we need to be in Buy Fleets screen. Click on the "Buy Fleet" button.

Once on the Buy Fleet screen, you will see a drop down list with the hulls that are available for purchase. Locate the hull we designed and then click "Buy Ship".

On the next screen we are brought to, we will need to select a powercore for our fleet. It's a good thing that we designed the entire ship before assembling it, because it saves us time when acquiring new fleets. Locate the powercore we designed and click the checkbox to the right of it. While we won't do this for our ship design due to lack of space, we can choose multiple powercores if we wanted.

Once you select the powercore we designed, scroll to the bottom of the screen and locate the Number of Ships to buy text box. Leave the number at zero and click "Buy Ship(s)". While we aren't actually purchasing a hull, we will still receive the fleet and will be able to upgrade the fleet.

Once you buy the fleet, you will be taken to a confirmation screen that tells you the new name of the fleet you just purchased and how much you spent.. There are also 2 options on this screen. Upgrading the fleet we just purchased and buying more fleets.

While one fleet is good, it is much better to have 3 or 4 fleets. Click on "Buy Fleet" on the confirmation screen and repeat the previous steps until you have 3 or 4 fleets.

Once you have acquired the fleets, we will need to upgrade them, so let's move on to the next section of the guide.
