Exocraft are planetary exploration vehicles
Summary[edit | edit source]
Exocraft are planetary exploration vehicles.
Three are available, and can be used to explore any planet as long as a geobay is built. In order to build any of the exocraft bays, a base must be built first to unlock its blueprint by building an Exocraft Terminal. You unlock the Exocraft Terminal by continuing the Overseer questline.
Nomad[edit | edit source]
The smallest and lightest Exocraft is the Nomad. What it may lack in cargo space, this hovercraft makes up for in speed, agility and its ability to glide over water.
The Nomad has an Exocraft Acceleration Module pre-built.
Roamer[edit | edit source]
The mid-range Exocraft is the Roamer, a great all-rounder capable of quickly crossing rugged terrain and adapting to most situations.
Colossus[edit | edit source]
The Colossus is the largest of the Exocraft. This lumbering behemoth offers an enormous cargo hold perfect for those looking to harvest resources.
The Colossus has an Exocraft Mining Laser pre-built.
Due to its weak engine and general lack of grip, it was often regarded as a mobile cargo unit. To amend this problem and make it a proper space truck the Colossus received an update in NEXT, giving it more speed and agility. With the free calling of all ships and possesion without a freighter, it also lost its value as a cargo unit. Thus the update kept it relevant.
Acquiring Exocraft[edit | edit source]
After constructing an Exocraft Terminal, acquire Exocraft by hiring a Vy'keen Technician for your planetary base and completing a new series of missions. You can place a Geobay on any planet. Doing so will summon the corresponding Exocraft. All Exocraft keep their inventories and installed tech when summoned, even on different planets.
