  1. Everyone should use the discord channel link in the game. Many active players in there who are always willing to help out with tips and advice.

  2. Is there an algorithm for getting desired secondary stat on Managers when upgrading from level two to level three i.e. all mine rate?

    • What is the best I guess say upgrade ratio like does it matter if I have my speed way higher then my mining rate what effect does it have

      • If you have the mining rate higher than your ship can transport at a time, then you wont gain anything by upgrading the mining rate again before upgrading cargo and ship speed.

  3. The beacon is a research project. One token is earned per ad youve watched, and it is spendable on permanent upgrades. Purchasing the remove ads purchase will give 25 of these a day forever, since you no longer can view ads (25 ads viewable per day, so they give all the earnable tokens automatically forever)

    • You still get beacon tokens for clicking on the view ad icon when it pops up along with the reward, you just don’t have to watch the ad, on top of the 25 per day

    • Every day you get 25 dark matter credits when the daily login resets, these can be spent on your beacon to upgrade planets with minor boosts, or to use boosts to speed up time.

  4. Cant find the items to colonize th first 3 planets. Scrith stone. Infinity d. Titanium. Got the items for planet 4 already. Pls help

  5. You can colonize more and more planets the more you continue to upgrade the right side section (colonies) it goes 1. Planets 1 and 2. 2. 2 -3 3. 3-4 etc
