If you want to do something, simply open your inventory by clicking I. Above the items in your inventory, you will see two buttons. One is marked as inventory items and the other as handicrafts. When you click Craftables, you get an organized collection of engrams you`ve learned. There is even a small search box at the top that can make searching for the engram much easier. To find out what resources you need for such a craft project, you just need to hover your mouse over the engram and see a flyout with a brief description of the item as well as a list of required materials. You can create a single item by simply clicking on the engram. Then click on Craft Item. If you have the materials and want to make as many as possible, there`s an extra button that says Craft All: (the number you can make). It`s also easy to make many different items, as long as you have the materials in your inventory. Simply select the first engram you want to create, and then click the craft item (you can click it more than once to create more than one item) or click Create All.
Then select the next engram and do the same. You can craft as many items as possible with your resources and up to 5 different engrams in a row. Cancelling the machine is also easy. Once you start making, you will get an option, Clear Craft Queue. When you click on it, everything except the item being created will be deleted. So let`s say you make 4 straw walls and click Cancel. The one that is done will continue, but the other 3 will be canceled. Also keep in mind that if you are farming, you can try one of the Rockwell recipes. Focal Chile offers a 25% bonus on move speed and a 100% bonus on crafting speed. The crafting in No Man`s Sky is extremely useful.
Players can get their hands on powerful items, craft useful tools, and even use the crafting mechanics to create a nice package with extra money. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of items in No Man`s Sky, but not all of them are instantly obvious to the player. Item quality plans, intended only for weapons, tools, armor, shields, and saddles, give bonuses on the statistics of the crafted item and the production of XP rewards, but can cost much more material. This is noted on the plan itself via its tooltip. You`ll get both supply crates and loot crates with higher-value crates, with higher-value crates often coming from higher-level crates, which serves as a unique reward for exploration, with their handmade items offering potentially extreme benefits (as well as powerful items that can be given to allies or easily replaced in case of loss), especially in combat, for players and creatures. Engrams are permanent crafting recipes that the player can unlock, and they provide players with a way to progress and progression in ARK: Survival Evolved. There are a total of 477 engrams in the base game (including all tekgrams). Unlike plans (lootable items that give you access to craft recipes), engrams are not lootable, last until the player dies, and do not gain weight or storage space. You will need an empty space in your inventory, otherwise the craft menu will not appear.
Then you`ll see all the plans you can use – more about that in a moment. Advanced crafting plans require more advanced materials. Some of them can only be obtained by refining raw materials. To do this, you need to install a refiner in your tether base. Blueprints are similar to engrams. Plans allow the manufacture of certain elements, but are not learned by spending engram points and do not cost engram points. Plans can be found in supply crates, loot crates, deep-sea loot boxes, and orbital supply drops. It`s best to start with the basics. You can access your console`s craft menu by tapping Square on your PlayStation controller or X on Xbox. The craft menu can be accessed on the PC by pressing E.
Refined materials not only take up less storage space, but also offer better performance, such as condensed carbon compared to regular carbon. Other common materials for which you need a refiner are the conversion of ferrite dust into pure ferrite. These materials become essential in the production of recipes. On the Ark, you have a few different crafting options beyond the engrams in your inventory. Not only can you tinker from your inventory, but you can also use various craft stations. Sure, you`ll have to make them before you can use them, but they give you advanced crafting options and allow you to create even more engrams. And unlike inventory crafting, you can use a lot of these craft stations at the same time. Crafting with mortar and pestleCrafting with refinement ForgeAutage with SmithyCrafting with the manufacturerYou can also repair the items you have made. And there is also the possibility of making crafts in bulk. Repair itemsFashion crafts Consumables are another important aspect of No Man`s Sky, as a player may need to craft fuel on the fly or pellets for a brand new alien companion. To make consumables, all you have to do is go to the craft menu with an empty slot in your inventory.
One of the most common things you can make and benefit from is a bypass chip. This element is typically used to access signal scanners and is consumed when used. However, since the chip is cheap to make (it requires 10 plutonium and 10 irons), you can sell the handmade item for an easy profit. Keep your eyes peeled for items that may have been marked at the Galactic Market. Some items sell for much more than their usual value, which makes the manufacturing method even more impressive. There are many ways to make money with No Man`s Sky, and crafting can be very lucrative once you know the basics. While many players choose to make long mining trips to make additional nanites, mastering the craft menu can also bring respectable profits. A large number of items in Ark can be made in your inventory, especially lower-level engrams. All you need are the raw materials you need and the engram. When you make an item in your inventory, you don`t have to leave your inventory open after you start manufacturing.
