  • Use Terminus Teleporters in Space Stations to teleport to and from your base at will
  • Expand your base with storage containers to stockpile precious resources and rare products
  • Find an even more beautiful location and you can simply dismantle your previous homestead to refund all of the spent resources
  • Cultivate biome dependent crops outdoors, or inside your base or Freighter using Hydroponic Labs
  • Plants grow over time and offer a steady supply of resources to be harvested
  • Hire a farming specialist to research and grow ten new plant types, and discover new resource elements
  • Players can now build essential equipment in the field on-planet
  • Place save points anywhere in the world, crucial for Survival mode
  • Automated Harvesters gather resources from mineral deposits in your absence
  • Waypoints can be placed and colour-coded to allow explorers to return to discoveries
