Death Quotes – Survival Mode

  • Base Building
    • Create your own outpost by finding an uninhabited base to claim your home planet.
    • As for your shelter, you can construct your homestead using structures and decorations that were replicated from resources you gathered while exploring
    • You can recruit alien lifeforms to research new technology. Specialists for farming, engineer, science and weapons can be hired from the Space Station.
    • If you’re exploring the universe, or other planets, you can use the Terminus Teleporters found in Space Stations to teleport to and from your base anytime you want
    • You can expand your base by using storage containers to stockpile rare products and precious resources
    • If you find a more beautiful location and you want to establish your base in it, simply dismantle your previous base. All resources spent in your previous base will be refunded.
  • Farming
    • You can hire a farming specialist to research, discover, and grow plants (10 new plant types). Plants provide a steady supply of resources when you harvest them.
  • Making Camp
    • Building essential equipment in the field on-planet is now allowed
    • You can now place save points anywhere in the world – especially useful in Survival Mode

    • Your Freighter can be customized in the Base Building section
    • Extended cargo holds will allow you to expand your Freighter’s capacity, and even grow crops of rare resources on board!
    • Maximize your earnings by transporting your Freighter to different systems that are more economically favorable.
