Atmosphere Harvester is a portable base building product.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Atmosphere Harvester is a portable base building product for extracting gases from a planet's atmosphere. It can extract the planet's gases without the need for constant supervision.

Game description[edit | edit source]

An automated siphon unit for the collection of valuable gases. Once activated, the harvester condenses and compresses substances from the air over time. Compressed gas is then stored safely until collected.

Build[edit | edit source]

Atmosphere Harvester can be built using a blueprint and the following resources:

Fuel sources[edit | edit source]

The Atmosphere Harvester has a Fuel Inverter, which requires 150 Carbon or 50 Condensed Carbon to be fully charged.

Additional information[edit | edit source]

  • Its blueprint is rewarded when you construct the Science Terminal and continue the Scientist quest line.
  • A maximum of three (3) Atmosphere Harvesters may be setup per planet. (Tip: Mark your harvester array with a colored beacon, and activate a waypoint on your galactic map for the system as a safety measure against losing track of them).
  • A fully charged device will harvest a maximum of 250 units over a time period of roughly 60 minutes.
  • The type of gas harvested depends entirely on the type of planetary environment they're set up in:
  • There is a specific harvester for Oxygen, see Oxygen Harvester.

Gas Crafting[edit | edit source]

One or more of these three gases make it possible to craft some of the rare intermediary materials (sometimes worth 100k to 2m), which in turn can be used to create various advanced (and highly valuable) commodities. For example, with the necessary blueprints unlocked:

Here is one, non-exhaustive, example of a gas crafting chain:

This is just an example of the things you can discover as you progress in the game by exploring planets and bartering with aliens.

Release history[edit | edit source]

  • Atlas Rises - Added as product.
  • NEXT - Blueprint changed, formerly required Voltaic cell, Heat Capacitor and Acid. It is now portable.
  • NEXT 1.63 - Fixed an issue that caused the Atmosphere Harvester to collect an invalid substance on specific rare biomes. Fixed an issue that caused it to run out of fuel and empty its collection hopper when the player left the system.
