As you try to purchase upgrades you may find yourself limited in terms of resources. The trade menu allows you to trade resources with other players.
The Trade Menu lets you exchange some resources for others at a rate set by your settlement type.
Making the Trade
To make a trade, you must select the resource you will give and the resource you will receive, after which an exchange rate of 100 given to however many received will be shown. Then you must use the sliding menu to select how many you will give. Once you have done that, you can press the send button to finish the exchange.
