Base Computer Archives is a mission.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Base Computer Archives is a secondary mission with many parts which primarily grants players Blueprints for functional base building objects. The mission tasks the player with checking their Base Computer regularly and building whatever it has dug up during its archive recovery so it can continue the process.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Archive Recovery, Part I[edit | edit source]

Base Computer Archives begins once the player has conversed with Artemis for the first time as part of the story mission Alone Amidst the Stars. Upon receiving the mission, the player will be directed to a Base Computer (usually the one built during Awakenings) and must extract a log entry and a blueprint for a Storage Container. Once the blueprint is obtained, the player will then be tasked with building a Storage Container using the blueprint; completing the task ends the first "cycle" of this part of the mission.

Subsequent "cycles" of this part of the mission begin with a 90-minute timer (which counts down in real time). Once the timer has elapsed, the player will need to check in with the designated Base Computer, extract a log entry and a blueprint for another item, and build that item to complete that "cycle" and begin the next one.

If the player already owns a blueprint obtainable from the mission, they will receive a B-class Life Support Module instead of a blueprint during that blueprint's "cycle." Additionally, the building step will instantly complete if the player already has the required Technology installed or the required object placed in the Base Computer's base.

Archive Recovery, Part II[edit | edit source]

Once the final "cycle," the one that awards the Landing Pad blueprint, has been completed, the player will be asked after another 90 minutes to check in on their Base Computer again and discover that, though it has exhausted its own archives, it knows the location of another archive in a nearby star system. Once the player has received the coordinates of this archive, they will need to travel to an Abandoned Building within another star system and use its terminal to extract an additional log entry as well as a base technology blueprint (or a C-class Cyclotron Module if all base technology blueprints are already known); completing this task ends the first "cycle" of this part of the mission.

Subsequent "cycles" of this part of the mission begin with a 6-hour timer (which counts down in real time). Once the timer has elapsed, the player will need to consult a Base Computer, then visit another Abandoned Building and extract its log entry to complete that "cycle" and begin the next one. This repeats until 10 log entries have been extracted in this manner.

Archive Recovery, Part III[edit | edit source]

The final stage is a cycle which rewards three Salavaged Technology units every 24 hours.
