Preorder was successful, all crates were sold in first few hours, so now we can take a look at First Edition Farsite Ships on NFT exchange. All items bought in preorded are NFT (they have value in cryptocurrency), they are visible on NFT exchanges and there they can be traded. From info available on NFT marketplace, and from official discord posts, was made a list of all available Farsite Ships, and their specifications.
There are 3 main ship manufacturers; Morgan, Seybana and Sacura. Morgan ships are Common, S (small size) or better. Seybana ships are Rare, S or better. Sacura ships are prestigious, big expensive ships which were not offered in preorder. Which ship you want depends mostly on your preferable gameplay. Farsite Ships offer different number of modules/sizes/types to fit, while modules also consume power. Ship is limited with power production so you need to plan carefully how to fit modules in most efficient way.

How to get ships?
There are several ways to obitain Farsite ships. Now when game is still in prelaunch, and since preorder crates are sold out, you can buy ship only on NFT exchange Opensea.io. When game starts and first players put ships on sale on ingame market-Stations, then you can buy them there for credits. You will earn credits to buy better ships, just do stuff like mining or find group which will support you. If you have blueprint, or you rented blueprint copies, and you have enough resources then you can build ship yourself. Remember, every item in Farsite is made by player (except first edition items ofc), and every item is tradable. Every time you open crate, there is a chance you will get ship you want. If your referrals open crates, you will get some percentages from that also.
