New Vertiform City – A No Man’s Sky Base

A reference to a classic Star Trek: The Next Generation episode, New Vertiform City is the first base that I build since restarting No Man’s Sky on GOG Galaxy. I wanted to make my home somewhere that was both useful and engaging, so I set out to find a good Electromagnetic Power Hotspot in the blistering hell of a planet with extremely radioactive wind storms.

Well that’ll do!

With an astonishing amount of unlimited power found, I put together a nifty little outpost with the following features…

Galactic Region: Umukait

System: The Moon (a late night naming error…)

  • F7f // Water (Yellow)
  • Vy’keen
  • Mathmatical (Scientific / Blue)
  • Conflict Level Destructive

Planet: Fallen Earth

  • Extreme Radioactivity
  • Frequent, long lasting storms
  • Minimal Sentinels
  • Silver, Uranium, Activated Copper, Gamma Root

City Functions

  • Mining Oyxgen (48Ku/day)
  • Mining Uranium (24Ku/day)
  • Harvesting Gamma Root (~50 Plants)
  • Crafting Liquid Explosives & Living Glass

City Amenities

  • Trade Terminal
  • Large and Medium Refiners
  • Roamer and Colossis Exocraft Terminals
  • Two Landing Pads
  • Antimater Harvester
  • Livestock Unit & Feeder

What’s Nearby

  • Storm Crystals
  • Ancient Bones
  • Large Oxygen patch and several Gamma Root patches
  • Trade Outpost (marked with beacon)
  • Ancient Data Structure
  • Water and Caves

For my purposes, those Uranium and Oxygen harvesters provide me with effectively an unlimited supply of several important resources. Also, the ability to make approx 12 million “Units” (currency) worth of crafted items every day (on top of being able to collect Storm Crystals and Ancient Bones!) is plenty to keep me happy. The game is too easy as it is, so I don’t see the point of ruining the experience by creating yet another Activated Indium mine that can max out one’s Units (4.2 billion) in few days. Nope, for me it’s about the journey, so I would rather set goals and work at them a little at time.

Anyhow, if you’re playing on GOG Galaxy (PC) and want to check it out, here is the portal address for the planet:

You can see here on the galactic map and translates into the following alpha-numeric values 2242013FD5C8. New Vertiform City is located at the coordinates -54, +162, which is pretty far away from the portal, so don’t forget you can call your ship or plop down an exo-craft terminal if you’re coming to visit.
