A Resource Depot is a station.

It is the only place where the player can trade materials. It also refines raw ores into those materials, for a small percentage, called "refinery tax".

Prices and refinery tax depend on the player's relation to the owner faction and the amount of materials available in the station.

Building a Resource Depot[ | ]

Founding a Resource Depot costs 15 million credits.

Advantages of building and using your own Resource Depot:

  • Refinery tax is not paid (small advantage)
  • Sell prices of materials are about 30% higher compared to what an allied faction's Resource Depot will pay.
  • It is possible to build it close to rich asteroid fields that are far away from civilization, in order to refine ores there.
  • Adding Assembly Blocks can reduce refining time (up to half at 600k production capacity), allowing for faster rotations and higher resource output when using R-Miners or R-Salvagers.

A Resource Depot does not require any blocks to function. It is possible to build it only from stone blocks and it will work.
