Craft your outposts strategically, gather resources diligently, and watch your personal galactic empire flourish in Starfield's expansive universe.
Bethesda's Starfield introduces an intricate base-building experience like no other. The game allows players to create and customize numerous outposts across uncharted star systems, extracting valuable materials in the process.
However, with such complexity, a guiding hand is appreciated. Fear not, as Starfield provides an in-game Help menu, making outpost construction a breeze.
Anyways, with these insights into ideal outpost locations and resource management, you will be well-equipped to start on your Starfield journey.
Choosing the perfect Outpost location
- When crafting your Starfield outpost, gathering and purchasing essential materials such as iron and aluminum is crucial. These materials must be loaded onto your spaceship for transportation to the outpost site.
- Keep in mind that available resources for outpost construction vary from planet to planet. Hence, selecting a location with abundant resources nearby for your primary base is essential.
- Consider factors like climate, atmosphere, raw materials, and magnetosphere when deciding on an outpost location.
Building your own Starfield Outpost
To construct an outpost efficiently, selecting the right planet is fundamental. You'll need a planet with the necessary resources, a livable atmosphere, water, and a favorable climate.
Activating an outpost beacon is a prerequisite for establishing your Starfield outpost. Placement options are nearly limitless, but remember to consider nearby hazards and proximity to valuable resources.
The outpost construction process involves:
- Finding the perfect outpost location.
- Aiming your Scanner at the desired location to place the Outpost Beacon.
- Hitting "R" on the keyboard or "X" on the controller to make it appear.
- Confirming the location.
- Selecting various buildings and machines from a newly opened menu. For instance, you can start by constructing an extractor to gather subterranean water, followed by setting up a solar array to generate electrical energy for nearby equipment.
Resources required for Outpost construction
To thrive in Starfield, exploration and resource gathering are vital. These resources are essential for tasks such as crafting weapons, medicine, outpost construction, and modifications.
Resources needed for outpost construction include copper, aluminum, beryllium, nickel, iron, lead, tungsten, sealant, and lubricant. Aluminum and iron should be your primary focus, but you can also source rarer elements from your base or purchase materials directly from merchants to fund outpost development.
