You might think that buying traders in X4 Foundations will completely automize the trading process, but that is not exactly true. Before your trader will upgrade to level 3, you’ll need to make use of the ‘Distribute Wares” option, which is a little more complicated than it seems.
What is Distribute Wares in X4 Foundations
Distribute Wares is an order you can give to your traders from the “behaviors” submenu. It will tell your trader to buy a set amount of one particular product from the space station of your choosing and sell it where they will get the best price.
How to Distribute Wares in X4 Foundations
Once you’ll select the “Distribute Wares” behavior, you can choose what type of wares will your trader transport. When you’re starting out, it’s best not to exclude any. Now, make sure you have your trader selected and press the right mouse button on the station you want to buy goods from. Select how many you need and press “confirm” for your trader to start distributing wares.
Distributing Wares vs Autotrading
3-star traders can do trading automatically. When this behavior is chosen, you won’t need to tell them what they need to buy. But, this system is not perfect and it can sometimes cause you to lose profit, so if you have the time, distributing wares manually might be a better option.

Terraria: Labor of Love | Shimmer Guide
One of the things that stand out in the Labor of Love Content is the Shimmer Liquid which has now become available early in the game.
In old versions of Terraria, the Shimmer liquid is part of the end game content. That means you will have access to it only when you’ve progressed further into the game.
In the Labor of Love content, the Aether Mini Biome is randomly spawned into the world and all you need to do is look for it.
Depending on how fast you can dig, you will be able to gain access to the Aether Mini Biome early in the game which opens up different item conversions which we will be discussing further on.
In this guide, we will show you the different uses for the Shimmer liquid in Terraria 1.4.4.
Labor of Love Shimmer Guide in Terraria
The shimmer liquid affects items in the game in different ways. Items that are crafted from different materials will sometimes disassemble when thrown into the liquid.
Throw items into the liquid to disassemble or upgrade existing items
Other items get upgraded to new versions of items exclusive in the latest update. Examples of this are the Life Crystal which turns into a vital crystal in the pool. This grants permanent regeneration boosts.
Another item is the Rod of discord. Throwing that into the pool will change it into a rod of Harmony where you can use the rod’s ability to teleport without suffering any debuff from use.
Try throwing different items to see their results
NPCs that fall into the liquid will change their appearances and if you fall into the pond, you will be sucked down and pass through blocks. Try to throw in different items and test out their results.
