Di-hydrogen is a resource.


Di-hydrogen (H) is a resource and one of the earth elements. It is a main ingredient required to craft fuel for both starships and frigates.

Game description[]

A stable, crystalline form of hydrogen remarkable both for its extreme energy density and its stability at atmospheric pressures.

Common to all worlds, Di-hydrogen is found in the form of large blue crystals. It is a key component of Starship Launch Fuel.


Harvesting Di-hydrogen crystals

Di-hydrogen can be found in blue crystal minerals located on nearly every planet. The larger minerals require an Advanced Mining Laser.

Di-hydrogen can be refined using a Refiner with the following ingredients:

  • PRODUCT.JELLY.png Di-hydrogen Jelly x1  →  SUBSTANCE.LAUNCHSUB.1.png Di-hydrogen x50  ("Di-hydrogen Cycling", 1 sec./unit output)
  • SUBSTANCE.ROCKETSUB.png Tritium x5  →  SUBSTANCE.LAUNCHSUB.1.png Di-hydrogen x1  ("Tritium Cycling", 1 sec./unit output)


Once the player has at least 40 Di-hydrogen and a Refiner, they can produce their own Di-hydrogen for free.

Crafting method:

  1. Use 40 Di-hydrogen to craft a Di-hydrogen Jelly.
  2. Refine the Di-hydrogen Jelly to produce 50 Di-hydrogen.
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2, to produce 10 Di-hydrogen per cycle.

Refining method:

  1. Refine 30 Di-hydrogen to produce a Di-hydrogen Jelly.
  2. Refine the Di-hydrogen Jelly to produce 50 Di-hydrogen .
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2, to produce 20 Di-hydrogen per cycle.

Note: Despite the difference in quantity produced, the crafting method is by far the faster method of producing Di-hydrogen, as the refiner takes 1min (60s) to create 1 Di-hydrogen Jelly, while crafting Di-hydrogen Jelly is instantaneous.



Di-hydrogen is used as an ingredient for crafting the following products:


Di-hydrogen is used as an ingredient for refining the following products using a Refiner:


Di-hydrogen is not used as an ingredient for cooking using a Nutrient Processor.
