Summary[edit | edit source]

When installing and upgrading technology, there are specific domains that can be upgraded. Your current stats are shown on the right hand side of the panel of your multi-tool or starship (stats for the exosuit are not displayed in-game).

  • In starships, you upgrade Damage Potential, Shield Absorb, Hyperdrive Range, and Maneuverability.
  • For Multi-tools, you upgrade Damage Potential and Scanner Range.
  • For the Exosuit you can upgrade Life Support, Hazard Protection, Movement, and Gloves.

How to use technologies:

  1. Loot, buy or otherwise learn blueprints.
  2. Craft Technologies and install them into slots (general slots or technology slots).
  3. Optionally buy Upgrade Modules and install them.
  4. If needed, dismantle Technologies and re-craft them in a different slot.
