How To Build Storage Facilities On Outposts In Starfield

Starfield provides limited internal storage to its players initially. In this guide, we will look at how can we create some additional storge facilities to rid ourselves of this problem.

Starfield outpost storage options

In Starfield, you’ll find a diverse array of storage facility construction options, including but not limited to the following:

  • Storage chests: Storage chests can hold resources you need to transport or use. In the basement of the Lodge, you will most probably find a storage crate or a storage box that does not indicate any weight limit like other chests which have storage capacity starting from 10 kg – 150 kg, so you can store as many resources in it as you want. The chests are expensive and can cost up to 20 Aluminum and 40 structural materials, which can be very expensive in building. But these are not a part of your outpost storage. They are unlimited storage options that are available in the Lodge.
  • Storage containers: Storage containers are the easiest way to store your resources on an outpost. These containers come in different sizes which are small, medium, and large. Also, these storage containers have different classifications, and a certain type of container is used to store its respective type of resource. Such as if you want to store cobalt it will be stored in solid storage on the other hand if you are extracting helium on your outpost, you will need gas storage containers.
  • Warehouse: Warehouse storage is a storage to store all of the manufactured goods. Storing tons of manufactured goods is not recommendable because selling them could be more profitable as they are non-resource-based items than keeping them in your hand as you can manufacture goods any time you need or purchase if needed.
  • Transfer containers: Transfer containers are used to transfer goods from one outpost to another, this transfer can be done in both the same system as well as inter-system. The transfer containers are also called cargo links. You can find this under the miscellaneous category of outpost building. The base cargo link is used to transfer resources within the same star system and requires no additional resources, whereas the inter-system cargo link is used to send resources from one-star system to another between your outposts.

The storage container will now house all the resources extracted by your extractor. If you require additional storage capacity, you can connect multiple storage units together to form a chain. This chain operates in such a way that the final storage unit in the sequence, denoted as “n,” will fill up first, followed by the second-to-last unit, and so forth.
