The Curiosity Shops are odd little locales, where people can peruse a selection of Alien Artifacts, each crate supplying 40 uses. If no crate is available, goods are replicated at a cost of 2,000.
Otherwise known as a shop, these attract visitors and residents alike, and using an automatic sale and delivery system, the Retail Outlet can make shopping an extremely pleasurable experience. Goods can be replicated on demand, or delivered from cargo storage. Retail Outlets are traditionally a useful way of gaining extra revenue.
