Item container (or loot containers or drops) have a chance of appearing after defeating an enemy in space combat or ground combat. They can be interacted with to take the item(s) so they are stored in the inventory.
These containers differ in shape according to the rarity of the item(s) within, providing a visual reference to the player to recognize items of greater rarity and thus higher value.
