If a pilot is lacking in Silver Credits then they can exchange Gold Bonds for Silver via the 'Exchange' service offered by the quartermaster. Silver is useful to pilots for purchasing more Launch Tubes, crafting and customizing ships.
The exchange can take place in set denominations (10, 25, 50, 100 and 500). Pilots will be advised of how much Silver they will receive and be asked to confirm the exchange.
Once 'Purchase' is selected the Quartermaster will ask for final confirmation and then the Gold will be exchanged. Pilots are advised to be sure that they wish to exchange gold before submitting the confirmation as the Quartermaster is not known for giving refunds.
