Crafting is one of the four foundation pillars of No Man's Sky.
Summary[edit | edit source]
Player can also craft products, which are often more valuable materials than pure elements. Products can be use in:
- components for more complex items and blueprints
- fuel technologies at ease (compare to fuel elements directly)
- commodity profit while trading
Dismantling upgrades[edit | edit source]
Certain products and upgrades can be dismantled (i.e. broken down into basic elements with a 25-50% recovery rate). Crafting items might allow a player to save space by filling one slot with a crafted object instead of having to use three slots for the resources involved. It will also allow a player to recycle components while building upgrades, rather than simply discarding or selling the older components. When an upgrade is dismantled, the raw materials returned are roughly half the totals used to originally craft the item.
