In order to use Drones, nanodrone components must be carried on the ship. When launching for a dive, components can be bought in batches of 1000kg for an average cost of 500 E$, though this price will fluctuate with the market.
To store components, a nanodrone storage must be installed on the ship. Each nanodrone storage has two stats a captain needs to consider: Storage and Delivery. Storage refers to how many kilograms of nanodrone components a ship is able to carry. Delivery refers to how many kilograms per second the storage system can supply; if the combined usage of all systems on the ship exceeds this, the number of drones dispensed will be limited by the delivery rate.
If a captain is not using drones, it is recommended to sell the storage to reduce the redundant weight of bringing components that cannot be used.
