To begin with the mods content, you can craft a shop from the third-tier inventors table. From there, you can buy all sorts of gear and weapons, plus you'll be able to buy a special teleporter to the hub world of the Shellguard mod. A large outpost on an alpine world, the hub will give you access to all sorts of content, such as quests, unique items, special story missions and more. This teleporter can also be found on extremely rare Tier 3 and above planets.
