Summary[edit | edit source]

Base Computer is a base building product and required to set up a Habitable Base.

Game description[edit | edit source]

A base computer prior to base construction

Portable land registration service.

When placed, contacts Universal Cartographic Archive to establish ownership of land. Successful registration allows the construction of base modules across any site of the user's choosing.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Base Computer can be built using a blueprint and the following ingredients:

NOTE: Blueprint needed to prove validity of this crafting formula under Synthesis.

Additional information[edit | edit source]

  • Claiming a base area only claims it in one incarnation of the universe, for example in the PC Normal universe, the PS4 creative universe, etc in whatever game mode/platform you are claiming in the game save. The same location on other modes in the same platform, or in other platforms in any mode will not be claimed.
  • It creates a circular building area, about 147 u in radius. (300u, tested 8/23/2020) However, it seems this radius will increase the further up the player builds their base in height. (Uncertain with expanded new radius)
  • The name associated with the base computer can be changed and if it is done before using a teleporter associated with it, that name will be on the selection list of other teleporters.
  • Once the player has reached a certain point in the Alone Amidst the Stars mission, the base computer will begin to uncover useful blueprints from its archives every 90 minutes as part of the Base Computer Archives mission.
  • It is possible to find procedurally generated unclaimed base computers out in the wild, meaning the player is able to go through a portal, claim the base, go back through the portal, go to the Space Anomaly's teleporter and teleport to the claimed base, meaning the player now has a shortcut to the center of the galaxy.[1]
    • Bug: If you experience the condition where the game persistently thinks your base computer is someplace other than your current base, teleport to the local space station to cause the mission to update and then fly back to your base.
