0x items were obtained over 3 ways over the past before Adam Coggeshall patched them, the first 0x glitch involved having a person shred an item while the critical ship counter was low and if the ship got destroyed while the item was being shredded it would create a 0x item. the second 0x item was a 0x fuel glitch that only worked with fuel, you got them by shooting out a thruster that had 1 fuel in it. the third 0x item glitch involved wrenching a fabricator at the exact time an item was being created from the fabricator, this was extremely hard to do. it is impossible to get a 0x item anymore because it was patched by Adam Coggeshall however he has compensated those who had a 0x item before April first with a gold zero or silver with a slash through it ∅.
How to handle a 0x item
Do not pick up the 0x item or it will be destroyed if you want to eject it then use a loader, to move It use a pusher or a loader.
Adam Coggeshall has compensated those with 0x fuel and other 0x items after April 1 with items.
As of now, all people with 0x fuel got a silver null trophy at a 1 trophy:1.1 0x fuel ratio, unfortunately, lots of people who had more than 20+ on a ship didn't get all of the 0x trophies they should have had. They are ejectable.
In the test server, you can manipulate your count of null trophies by going into sandbox mode, and putting them into an expando box
