Types of Farm
The farms on the left side of the diagram are relatively primitive, requiring only water and energy cells to operate. In the case of the Crystal Farm no inputs are needed. The farms to the right are a bit more advanced and require inputs from additional production chains, which are noted in the diagram. Of course these inputs can be sourced from elsewhere in the galaxy, or players can rely on npc transports to deliver the products, but these methods will be slow, expensive, and unreliable.
