    • Land Claim: No
    • Protection: No protection from the UEE
    • Financial Aspect: No cost, high risk, high reward
    • Taxes and Fees: Not applicable
  1. Off the Grid Base:
    • A unique option for basebuilding with different considerations.

Tools for Basebuilding:

  1. Surveyor Tool and Hover Trolley: Suitable for small structures.
  2. Vehicle Support: Enables the construction of small to medium structures.
  3. Ship (Galaxy) RSI Support: Facilitates the building of small to large structures.
  4. Pioneer: Allows for building from small to extra-large structures while remaining mobile and exploring space options.

Land Claim and Basebuilding Mode:

  • Place the tool down, launch a drone, and access land claim mode to view costs and taxes if applicable.
  • In basebuilding mode, utilize an overhead view to plan and test building placements, assess underground resources, and determine necessary building materials.
