Simply be sure to go away rapidly as opening pods will launch a cloud of radiation that may eat up your shielding rapidly.
To craft a Hyperdrive from a blueprint, you’ll want the next:
- 125 Chromatic Metallic
- 5 Microprocessors
Chromatic Metallic simply wants some refined Copper, which you have already got the instruments to extract – you’ll simply want to search out one or two deposits to amass 250 Copper, and have pack loads of spare Ferrite Mud to maintain your laser operating.
As for the Microprocessors, you may’t precisely harvest them. You’ll have two choices on how finest purchase them: Essentially the most easy method is simply to amass a bunch of assets and return to the Area Station to purchase Microprocessors utilizing cash gained from promoting items (The objects you bought from the Cargo Pods ought to come in useful right here).
You too can randomly discover Microprocessors by looking out the Cargo Drops that dot the panorama (they seem as treasure chests in your scanner). It’s not precisely dependable, however it may possibly avoid wasting cash whereas exploring.
Whichever methodology you select, upon getting every little thing you want, set up the expertise in your ship to equip the Hyperdrive – however in fact you’ll nonetheless want gas to have the ability to soar to a brand new star system.

If you happen to ought to occur to unintentionally use, drop, or promote the Antimatter, you’ll be directed again to the Area Station the place the powers that be will grant you one other likelihood by making a random lifeform offer you a brand new one.
Upon getting a brand new Antimatter Housing, you may mix it with the Antimatter to make a Warp Cell to present your starship simply sufficient gas for a Warp Bounce – now you may lastly see what the universe has to supply.

From right here, you may see the the breadth of No Man’s Sky, together with your present photo voltaic system and the variety of planets and moons in your space. Additionally listed is the economic system, dominant lifeforms, and quantity of battle. As you zoom over the opposite techniques, you’ll discover there are various locations to go now – and it’s totally as much as you.
You’ll be able to filter your information by color-coded lifeforms: Blue techniques are residence to the Korvax, Purple the Vykeen, and Yellow the Gex – white techniques are unavailable, at the least for the second. With out filters, you’ll see that the system colours additionally imply some require totally different form of Warp Drive equipment to succeed in them, and these uncommon techniques could have extra issues to search out on them.

Apart from filtering, you may also set a path – both free-roaming, or in the direction of aims you might or could not have at present (at this level your solely actual goal is the Galactic Core – which is VERY far-off). It’s as much as you the place to go subsequent, although you may solely actually soar one system away.
Arriving in your subsequent star system, you might notice there’s no extra gas to maintain leaping, so who’s going to present you free Anitmatter this time? Because it seems, you’ll get a beacon to scan for, and it’ll level you to a Planetary Outpost on a close-by planet.
Outposts like these are much like Area Stations – there’s all the time incoming and outgoing pilots you may barter with or purchase their ships – and you may also discuss to lifeforms and use the galactic database to purchase and promote as effectively. On this explicit port, the published is coming from a selected lifeform by way of which your mysterious benefactors are talking. You’ll be supplied a blueprint that can now allow you to assemble your individual Antimatter, and now you’ve gotten the instruments to journey wherever you need within the universe!
