A thespian created base – Keeper Base of operations

Base of operations building allows the actor to build multiple bases, which can be used for farming, storage and recharging Hazard Protection or Shield. A limit of 400 bases has been reported. The game displays a generic “unsuitable location” error message once the limit has been reached. There is likewise a limit of xvi,000 components per save and a 3,000 components upload limit per base. Bases which use more than three,000 parts cannot exist uploaded. Racetracks may also be created and shared at a histrion base of operations. Base edifice is available to all four Game modes currently offered in No Man’due south Heaven.

To create a base, simply place a Base of operations Estimator (found nether “Portable Engineering”) anywhere, utilize it to claim the territory, and start edifice.

Location Selection


Serenity Villa1.jpg

In general, selecting a location for a base is not restricted, however the following should be considered on selecting a location for a base of operations:

  • You cannot normally construct a base inside 300u of another actor’s base of operations (specifically one that is previously uploaded to Hello Games servers)
  • Y’all tin can construct a base within at least 200u (some reports are 300u) of a planetary Portal, but on upload, this base of operations might not be visible to other players.
  • Hello Games regularly wipes bases congenital on weekly Customs Research mission target sites for investigation, if constructed during the customs research issue. This wipe happens hourly.
  • The base of operations perimeter starts out every bit 300u in every management from the base computer. This can be extended by 50u at a fourth dimension, past placing objects at the current perimeter e.thou. silos or batteries. You tin walk 1000u away from base of operations reckoner by doing this, but walking further closes the build menu. At the 1000u point, you tin can open up build photographic camera to move an additional 50u & place as far equally you tin encounter from that bespeak.2
  • When considering
    Base Figurer
    placement, yous should consider the availability of Hotspots for nearby resources (within 300u or 1050u if you extend your base) such as Electromagnetic Ability Hotspot, Full-bodied Gas Deject, and Deep-Level Mineral Deposits. From any given betoken, with extensions to 1050u, you tin can reach up to 16 hotspots, which will
    include at least one of each type: Power, Gas, Oxygen, Mineral 1, Mineral ii, Mineral 3. What course they announced as however is not a guarantee.
  • Warning: In the result that a thespian does make up one’s mind to go skyward and establish a base above the clouds with the help of some other base (1,000 u direct above), it will let the actor to merits the base of operations initially, but the next time the thespian loads the salvage, the new base pieces volition non appear and will instead display every bit a base icon with no way to delete it.

Base Construction


Meet Structure for a detailed description of construction information.

Base Editing


Editing a base tin can include removing a component or changing the color scheme. To do either of these things, open the Build Menu, and agree downwards the left command cardinal. This will bring up the post-obit two options:

  • Delete
    role: Aim at a base of operations component, or a component of some sort. Click to remove it. Removing a component will usually refund the materials used (alternately, some components will be added to inventory as items instead), then this is helpful for relocating things. If a player removes a final and replaces it, the terminal employee volition respawn with it. Notation that components unable to exist costless-standing must be removed from an detail before information technology can be deleted; i.e. a Landing Pad or Straight Corridor attached only to a Cylindrical Room in mid-air must exist deleted before that Cylindrical Room tin can exist deleted.
  • Material
    part: Scan through texture options (Wood, Concrete, Rust and Rock). Pressing “F”/left click (PC) to select the desired cloth will bring the actor to a new pick called
    Colour. There are sixteen dissimilar options for colour schemes. The principal colour is mentioned first (big circle) and the secondary/emphasis colour is mentioned 2d (small circle). Changing the colour/material does not cost anything and can be done as often as desired.

Base Deletion


If a player chooses the “Delete Base of operations” option in the Base Reckoner, all components in the base of operations building area volition be instantly erased and added to the Base Salvage Sheathing. Once a player tin build the capsule, a percentage of the materials from their deleted bases tin exist recovered.

Base Sharing


  • A player tin cull to upload their base to be discovered by other players. In order to practise and then, they must activate the Base of operations Calculator, and choose the option to upload their base. Doing so will as well save the current state of terrain edits & mineral deposits.
  • Player bases are only visible from the same Game mode, although all uploaded discoveries, organisation and planet names are shared between all modes & platforms.
  • Simply one base per thespian will be visible per planet or moon to other players who are not in a foyer with the base possessor. The most recently uploaded base of operations will exist the one that appears to other players. Uploading a unlike base of operations on that planet or moon will cause that base to appear instead of one that previously appeared to others.
  • Simply Communications Stations the thespian builds will exist visible in other modes, fifty-fifty when built within the base (Message Modules are non) and Communication Stations cannot be deleted.

See the Player Base of operations Catalogue for a list of shared bases. They tin can exist visited using the respective coordinates on the Pilgrim Star Path website.

Base of operations Components


There are a finite number of components that can be initially used to construct a base of operations.

  • Those available before the Side by side update are referenced on the Structure types page.

Information technology is possible to increment the diversity of components in two ways:

  • Mission base components: the player can unlock them for gratuitous every bit rewards for completing missions requested by employees
  • Purchase component blueprints using Salvaged Data with a Structure Research Unit of measurement.

Mission Rewarded Base Components


A base provides a abode location for a thespian’s NPCs Employees. These can be recruited from Space Stations to fill their respective terminals that a role player can install in their base. They so send the player to perform certain tasks to unlock new blueprints, such equally Exocraft bays, Haz-Mat Gauntlet and the Advanced Mining Laser. The five types are Overseer, Scientist, Armourer, Farmer, and Technician. Each type will require a specialized final to be built before they can be hired. Doors count base of operations NPCs as entities and then if a NPC is close to a normal door, normal doors will stay perpetually open unless the NPC is moved further away from the door.

In the event that a player wants to move bases, all they have to practice is construct the corresponding terminals inside of their new base of operations. Hold the action central (E for default on PC) and they’ll announced. This can exist done without an event and is cost complimentary. This means a player could have terminals at all the bases they build, and simply “call” the needed employee when they have the needed materials for their mission or to begin generating their mission structures closer to a base on newly discovered planets.

The player should build a Structure Terminal as soon as possible. This volition allow the first set of missions to be issued by the Overseer (see Employees to a higher place). These missions will pb to all other terminals, the employees associated with those terminals, and hence unlocking additional missions that can add to the number of base components available for base building.

The following blueprints are not available via Structure Research Unit and must be unlocked via the Expanding the Base mission and it’s related missions and are in club of obtained:

  • Overseer:
    • Storage Container
    • Science Terminal
    • Weapons Terminal
    • Agronomical Final
    • Galactic Trade Last
    • Exocraft Terminal
  • Scientist:
    • Large Refiner
    • Salvage Beacon
    • Atmosphere Harvester
    • Autonomous Mining Unit of measurement
  • Farmer:
    • Hydroponic Tray
    • Gutrot Flower (formerly Coprite bloom)
    • Frostwort
    • Solar Vine
    • Fungal Cluster
    • Gamma Weed
    • Gravitino Host
    • Venom Urchin
    • Albumen Pearl Orb
    • Echinocactus
    • Star Bramble
    • Mordite Root
  • Exocraft Technician:
    • Roamer Geobay
    • Colossus Geobay
    • Nomad Geobay

Using The Construction Enquiry Unit of measurement


Additional components can be unlocked at the Structure Research Unit.

As the player buys/earns additional components from various methods, then the Construction Enquiry Unit will unlock to allow purchase of additional related components; i.eastward walls with glass windows.

Salvaged Technology can exist obtained past scanning for Cached Technology Modules with the Assay Visor and so excavation upward the module with the Terrain Manipulator once the player is shut enough. Opening them will give the player one to v Salvaged Technology and very rarely, two modules may spawn in the exact same spot.

Storage Containers


Storage Containers tin be congenital for additional storage chapters. Each contains 20 slots with twice the capacity of a starship inventory slot, and up to ten can be built. This provides the player with 200 additional inventory slots if they choose to build all the containers. The blueprint for Storage Containers is given by the Overseer during their mission serial. Containers may be recoloured or named in society to go on track of where resource are stored, and also comprise an external number from zero to ix. A player may build but one of each Storage Container, merely they can be built at any base they own, including aboard their freighter. Resources tin can be teleported to storage from anywhere just they cannot exist teleported dorsum unless the histrion is actually in the base where the resource are stored (or the thespian has a freighter with matter beam and the advisable containers in the system).

Storage containers are shared across all bases, making resources retrievable at any location, equally long as the container is built in the local base of operations or on the players’ Freighter.



Creating a base allows the player to build a Base Teleport Module, which tin instantly send the player to their other bases. It tin can also teleport to previous locations that have been activated, similar Space Stations or other players’ bases.



  • The Construction Research Unit’s design isn’t available to old saves earlier the 1.53 patch
  • Some ‘investigate building’ missions may possibly be bugged on planets with lots of water. The location may spawn under h2o and there may be no construction present. It is possible to receive new locations from the mission giver until a location is given on the surface.

Report Base of operations


If you lot get trapped in someone’due south base or the Base has an offensive build, go into build mode (Z), bring upward the wiring/color/delete menu, and choice Written report Base of operations to hide information technology from your game.



Bases should be built in a strategic location if possible to facilitate farming and completing missions:

  • Build a base further away from the Base Computer every bit teleporting to it may cause the role player’s Starship to clip into their base of operations if the Base Computer is also close to their base. Exam where your send lands before edifice!
  • For optimal base of operations building, bring large amounts of Ferrite Grit, Pure Ferrite, Magnetised Ferrite, Sodium, Chromatic Metal, Ionised Cobalt, Frost Crystals and Carbon; 3-4 stacks of each volition do for a very small-scale base but y’all volition need more for a larger base and/or the Overseer mission and its related missions
    • Carbon for Access Ramps, Interior Stairs and wooden components
    • Chromatic Metal for some of the NPC terminals, the Science Terminal requires Magnetised Ferrite, the Weapons Terminal besides requires Pugneum, the Agricultural Last requires Condensed Carbon and the Exocraft Concluding also requires Di-hydrogen
    • Ferrite Dust for Ladders and Solid Cubes
    • Frost Crystals for components with glass, windows, Viewing Sphere and Bio-Dome (Glass tin be fabricated from refining Silicate Dust which is gathered by using the Terrain Manipulator on any non-descript footing)
    • Ionized Cobalt for Holo-Doors, Glass Cuboid Rooms, Curved Cuboid Roofs, Teleporters (which require Ion Batteries) and Health Stations (which also require Metal Plating and Uranium)
    • Magnetised Ferrite for Storage Containers, Viewing Sphere, Bio-Dome
    • Pure Ferrite for Infrastructure Ladders, Cuboid Rooms, Square/Cubical Rooms, foundations, doors, corridors, etc
    • Sodium for Lights and Storage Containers
  • Choosing a Star system with five to six planets may offer a more diverse range of resources types without having to warp to other systems
  • Build near Resource Deposits to brand easier use of the Autonomous Mining Unit
  • Call up to build Temper Harvesters and Oxygen Harvesters to generate Radon, Sulphurine, Nitrogen and Oxygen depending on the Biome
  • Build near water and caves for easier access to Kelp Sac, Cobalt and Marrow Bulb
  • Resource respawn later leaving and returning to a base of operations via Teleporter, but merely if going to a different system
  • Some decoration items take functions, with the ability to restore Shields or Health, grow Carbon, get Warp Cells, etc
  • Build on a planet with no chancy weather condition (hot, cold, toxic, radiant, hostile sentinels
    ii), so you don’t accept to worry nearly refueling or stabilizing Hazard Protection
  • While doing the Armourer’s exocraft missions it is advantageous to choose a planet with open flat land and few hills/cliffs. (HINT: You lot can complete them using your Starship to reach the locations, rather than your Exocraft) The presence of numerous animals. pillars, or copse, also interferes with exocraft missions. Some base missions are easier when the planet is not deserted and diverse buildings are close by.
  • If a player wants to subcontract Gravitino Hosts naturally without planting them, it is required to be on an Extreme Spotter planet
  • In that location are variety of Glitch techniques for base of operations building. Some of these are described on the Glitch Building Techniques page.

Extending A Base Radius


Extending A Base Range

Sometimes a particular location is desired for aesthetic or other reasons, but it is also desirable to access Hotspot resources that may not be user-friendly to access from the preferred location.

The normal base reckoner radius is 300u from the base estimator (which is the
of the base), however information technology is possible to extend the range of a base of operations past over three times this to 1000u. To do this, the boundary must commencement be unlocked past using a Relieve Point or Beacon within your base then reloading that save. Next, drib any base edifice element (say a Storage Container or a Supply Depot or fifty-fifty a flooring segment) at the edge of the base boundary but inside the limits of the computer range. This will extend the range by approximately another 30u from that location. This can be used to daisy chain up to 1000u from the original location allowing additional hotspots to be accessed from a specific base of operations location. Power and supply pipes of class will need to be run to all these remote locations from the main base of operations site.

Retrieving A Pre-NEXT Base of operations


An inactive Base Computer set up to claim.

If an older salvage is updated to the NEXT version of No Human’s Sky (version one.5+), the player will spawn without their base. Follow these steps to become a previous base back:
1: Select the base edifice mission in Log.
If the mission isn’t selected, the base of operations cannot be retrieved

2: Fly downwardly to a planet’south surface and utilise the Scanner. It volition locate a Base Computer. Fly to the location.
iii: Activate the Base Estimator and choose the selection to retrieve the previous base.
(note that these steps only work if the role player is using the experimental patch every bit of 1.52. If they do not have the patch, zero will spawn, and then not allowing a player to remember their Pre-NEXT base)

Release history


  • Foundation – Introduced equally new major component of the game.
  • Atlas Rises – The post-obit base limitations existed:
    • Only certain locations were available for base edifice. These were marked by a circular construction, and represented an unclaimed base.
    • A player was immune to operate simply one base at a time. This was done by entering the base building and claiming information technology at the Terminal. If some other base was claimed, the first one disappeared.
    • Habitable base locations were located by a number of different methods:
      • Finding them past exploring the planet surface.
      • Flight over a planet in a Starship.
      • Using a Starship’s Scanner from space, sometimes a base volition appear as a point of interest.
      • Beacons sometimes located habitable bases, but like using a Starship’due south Scanner, it was random.
      • Crafting a Indicate Booster, then selecting
        Habitable Base
        from the list. A base on that planet would exist located.
  • NEXT – Bases tin can be created anywhere using a Base Computer, and the number of pieces a base tin can incorporate expanded tremendously.
  • Beyond – Power requirements for many base parts added.
  • Beyond 2.06B – Reduced maximum base of operations node count to let very large bases to load better.
  • Across 2.06D – Set to preclude problems with base buying.
  • Across 2.06G – Dynamically limit base building limits to allow some very large bases to load in more than situations.
  • Beyond 2.09.i – Adjusted base part information to amend performance in large bases. Made player-buildable sofas sittable. Stock-still a crash that affected big bases.
  • Synthesis two.20 – Storage containers now have twenty slots instead of 5.
  • Frontiers – Hundreds of new base building parts added.
