Freighter Base Building is a base-building page.


Freighter Base Building describes base building aboard a freighter.


There is a 21 x 21 x 14 area aboard a freighter where a limited number of base building products can be built. This results in a total volume of 6174 u3in which the build menu will remain open. Freighter Corridors and Large Freighter Rooms can be used to expand the interior of freighters.

Freighter Fleet Rooms[]

Base building aboard a freighter is required unless the player wants to be without the potentially massive source of income Frigate fleets bring in. Fleet Command Rooms are required to send out expeditions and to debrief them once complete. It is recommended that the player build at least six of them to support 5 expeditions at once and the rare expedition that lasts longer that 24hrs.

Restoring a Base After Purchasing a New Freighter[]

After obtaining a new freighter, any existing freighter base is automatically transferred and reassembled aboard the new freighter.

If you want to start over, an option is available on the freighter upgrade terminal that lets you reset your freighter base back to the default layout.

Note that prior to Prisms, your base would be lost in this situation, although part of the materials could be salvaged.

Buildable Products Aboard a Freighter[]

Numerous structures can be built aboard a freighter, including many decorations. Some decoration blueprints can be salvaged from the wrecks of derelict freighters found abandoned in space...
