Starbase – Making Credits
Short on credits or can’t afford a service? Here’s how to get more.
You can demolish shipwrecks, repair ships, join the assembly line, or mine asteroids at the station for credits. The credits will be automatically added to your account.
Currently (July 2021), the most profitable way to make credits is by mining and selling Charodium. It sells for 5k cr per stack.
To begin a job, enter the area on the station and it should begin automatically. If not, find the console on the side and pick a job from the list.
Everything you need to know about beating up rocks for lunch money.
Your pickaxe is in your inventory [I]. Drag it out into your Hotbar, then select it. The pickaxe has two sides – one breaks the asteroid into fragments, and the other breaks up those fragments in a smaller area.
Connect to the station’s or your ship’s resource bridge by pressing [F] while looking at it.
Use either modes of the pickaxe to break up the asteroid and collect the materials inside.
Once you’re done mining, head back to the station and find a set of red towers called the Ore towers. You’ll be able to unload and sell your materials there.
Finding the right minerals
There’s currently no way to tell what you’re mining unless you start mining it. Good luck!
Certain materials will look different, so you can discern what it contains by looking at it. Not every asteroid will have the same core materials, even if the surface looks the same.
