Research Center Exchange ico

The Research Center Exchange is a shop that can be accessed by interacting with a yellow cash register on a table located near the middle of the Research Center.

Unlike most shops, it takes Data Discs instead of Gols as currency.


General stockEdit

The store is stocked with small amount of relic crafting materials and several crafting books.

There is a fixed amount of each item in stock. If the player buys all available items they will have to wait until the next day for the store to restock.

Data chipsEdit

Production Data Chip #2 1 30 Data Disc

Additional data chips exist: Agricultural Data Chip #2, Husbandry Data Chip #2 and six data chips related to cooking. These chips cannot be purchased but can be found as loot in various Abandoned Ruins. They cannot be used before completing Mission: Chip Upgrades.

Assembly diagramsEdit

All of the assembly diagrams can be obtained for less Data Discs if obtained from Petra during a mission, though the player will have to wait at least one day for each blueprint. If the player desires to buy a blueprint so that they may do Commissions or prepare assembled items ahead of time, it will cost more than it would during the corresponding mission, though the diagram would immediately be in the player's possession.

However, if the player's game is bugged and they cannot otherwise receive a blueprint they need, they can simply buy it from this store.
