I went to a shop on Trandosha to buy me first items. I buy a knife and a backpack. The clerk tells me to "Don't forget to pick them up". I check to see if I have these items but in my items area it says "Coming Soon". What going on? Is there a way to get the items after you buy them?
To pick them up, you need to follow the Position link on your right menu, then click the Items button that appears on the position page. That should load the items interface in that frame. Items inventory (on the right menu) is not yet implemented, but you can still use Position -> Items to pick up what you purchased.
