Kelp Sac is a resource.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Kelp Sac (Ke) is a resource, and a member of the Harvested Agricultural Substance class.

Gathering from plants that yield the resource (using the Interact function) will refill the exosuit's oxygen supply. The plants must be harvested, ideally with a Mining Beam, in order to obtain their Kelp Sacs.

Game description[edit | edit source]

A rubbery, luminescent sac harvested from underwater Candle Kelp plants.

Agricultural science has not yet tamed the Candle Kelp. As such, these sacs cannot be farmed.

Sources[edit | edit source]

Collecting Kelp Sac

This element can be recovered from specific underwater plants on ocean planets known as Candle Kelp.

It does not appear on a planet or orbital scan.

Tips for locating[edit | edit source]

  • To locate this resource, go to any world that supports carbon life (Flora) and contains oceans and/or other large bodies of water. Kelp Sac comes in several forms, all of which slightly glow. Because of this, it is recommended that when searching for Kelp Sac, you do so during the night as they will be easier to spot from a distance.
  • Because underwater movement is so slow, a good strategy is to use the Nomad exocraft (which hovers on water), and skim across the ocean looking down; you can see the Kelp Sac-containing plants glowing underwater (especially at night). Just drop down and mine, resurface, catch your breath, and move on.
  • If waters are not particularly deep, it is possible to depart from the Nomad and immediately use the jetpack to get a position on top of the Nomad and mine the Kelp Sacs from there. This is especially useful if not equipped with an Underwater Oxygen Upgrade.
