Bases, Portals, and Resources

Resource gathering in No Man’s Sky can be somewhat time consuming. The process of gathering resources can be made somewhat less tedious by building multiple bases on separate worlds, renaming and uploading the bases to the server and building portals at each one.

Doing this allows you to link the bases together without having to fly between them. Then, you can build automated mining machines on top of nodes, allowing basically infinite mining of resources. Build multiple miners, feed them 50 condensed carbon, and you can basically get infinite resources.

This can be made even more advantageous if you build your bases on planets that have predators, storm crystals, or other valuable resources. Don’t forget even gasses are valuable using an atmosphere harvester.
