Modules are NFT items which provide stat boosts to the building, vessel, or player to which they are equipped. Most buildings and vessels contain one or more module slots, each module slot can be equipped with one module.
Modules come in three different levels of rarity; common, rare, and legendary.
In Cryptopia, you can obtain modules in the following ways;
A quest is a task, series of tasks, or a mission — it’s an objective a player can carry out successfully to receive a reward. One of those rewards may be a module.
Sabotage games are mini-battles that take place between opposing faction members. Winning a sabotage game may result in being rewarded with a module. Modules can also increase your chances at winning or defending against sabotage.
Some modules can be crafted with your Player’s hands and the required materials. Some modules require a more complex construction process that’s better situated inside a building. Not all modules can be crafted, some must be obtained through other means.
Some basic modules can be bought from the game. More advanced modules may be purchased from other players through the in-game market or from an external market such as OpenSea.
Modules give you an advantage over other players in many aspects of the game by boosting the stats of the object they are equipped to. Below are some examples for speed, efficiency, and storage modules.
Hiring for a job in Cryptopia is on a first come, first serve basis. Being the first to arrive at a jobsite means you’ll have a higher chance at getting the job. A faster spinning radar will provide a shorter response time to incoming saboteurs. Walking faster may let you chase down that pet you’ve been trying to tame.
Less carbon output means you’ll be taxed less on your carbon emissions, keeping more profits in your pockets. An increase to your efficiency equates to less resources consumed when crafting, since you can craft items while producing less waste.
Module slots must be equipped with the appropriate storage containers, or else the items inside will get damaged. Equip a storage module and you’ll be able to carry more loot. Or, you’ll be able to transport more raw materials to your factory for refinement — in fewer trips.
Scenario one; Bob and Jill are both equally qualified architects looking for work. They both own the same class ship. Halfway across Cryptopia, a Tycoon wishing to build a new facility lists an open position for an architect on the Cryptopia job board. Before heading to the jobsite, Jill equips her ship with a speed module - an ultralight sail, but Bob does not. By arriving first to the jobsite due to her increased speed; Jill gets the job.
Scenario two; Alice and Jim are members of opposing factions. Alice has been relentlessly sabotaging Jims copper mine, slowing its production. Realizing the highly efficient saboteurs are slipping through his radar defense, Jim equips his radar turrets with speed modules - brushless motors. His upgraded radars are now able to detect the saboteurs and Jill’s plans are thwarted. Jim’s copper mine is operating at full capacity.
