Top Frame Edit
At the top portion of the screen there will be a picture of the planet you currently have selected, next to that is a drop down menu showing the name and coordinates of the planet. This field allows you to change your selection to another colonized planet. The order of the planets can be changed in the Options.
To the right, there are fields showing the amount of resources available on your current planet. The first three, Metal, Crystal, and Deuterium show the current amount available to spend. The last one shows the amount of Energy available and total. Additional resources such as Dark Matter can be found through Expeditions or can be purchased through Ogame via Paypal, Credit Card, Phone Call, SMS, and Moneybookers.
