Navigating a cave system using the Roamer

Caves are a type of geological structure generated on most if not all planets.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Caves can be used as a means of shelter against Weather and other planet hazards. They can be either safe or very dangerous, so be on your guard whenever entering a new cave system. They also contain resources and different Species, some of which cannot be found on the surface.

Resources[edit | edit source]

Temperature Differences[edit | edit source]

In one of the pre-release videos, a player is seen going into a cave on Balari V to recharge the anti-planet hazard insulation in his suit. It is notably warmer inside as the temperature rises at least 200 degrees Celsius. The player penetrates the cave by blowing a hole in the ground using the Land Disruptor upgrade for his weapon.

Currently, caves are all safer than the external environment.

Additional Information[edit | edit source]

  • As of Update 1.03, their maximum height will be 128m, greater than what it was in earlier versions.
  • Caves extending all the way down to "bedrock" will often have surface objects generate on the exposed "bedrock"
