Guide for Avorion – Space Station Classification

Another classifying guide! This time, we’ll be looking into space stations, as these can be an overwhelming project most people want nothing to do with until much later in the game. Once you get there, you might need some help naming it and properly gain from it.


Introduction into Space Stations

To start, a space station is a conventionally large, rather immobile building within the vacuum of space. They can serve various roles to a player, mainly manufactories and stations like Habitats and Trading Posts, which can serve to bring NPC traders to your sectors.

Here’s a shortlist of things you’ll need to know to read my tables properly:

  • Name Self Explanatory. It’s the name of the Space Station.
  • Product: What it produces. If it has multiple types, it will be labeled according to how they are listed in-game
  • Needs: What it needs. If multiple types, they will be labeled as well.
  • Uses: What you can use it for, and where it can be sold. (i.e., if it can be used for Rubber, it can be sold at a Rubber Factory) If it is used in a factory that has multiple types, it will be listed what type it can be used for


Asteroid Mines

Asteroid mines are a special kind of station that can only be founded when you’ve discovered a rather large, unique asteroid. After you’ve found one, they can either be transformed into a mine or sold to a nearby empire. Transforming them can cost you between 6-14 million credits, but they produce elements without the need for other products.

Basic Factories

These are the first stations you will see when building a station and are usually the best choice when building your first one. They are rather cheap (for a station), and they create materials from thin space.

Plankton CollectorPlanktonN/AFertilizerOne of the less profitable ones. Best to save until you want to work up to a coffee/spice farm (which will require Fertilizer)
Mineral ExtractorMineralN/AFertilizer (Both Types), FungusAlso less profitable. Wait for further tech factories unless there is a factory nearby in need of minerals.
Water CollectorWaterN/APaper, Fungus, Vegetable, Corn, Potato, Wheat, Fruit, Rice, Wood, Fish, Tea, Plant, Cattle, Sheep, Chemicals, Distillery, Medical Supplies, Coffee, Cocoa, Spices, Paint, BreweryVery profitable, and in usual demand
Crystal FarmCrystalN/AGlass, NanobotsSpecific and less profitable
Scrap Metal TraderScrap MetalN/ASteel (Second Type)However, useless unless a Steel Factory is made; Steel is used in many other factories.
Gas Collectors(Dependent on Station) Hydrogen, Helium, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Fluorine, Neon, ChlorineN/AFuel (N & F), Fish (O), Cattle (O), Sheep (O), Chemicals (H, N, & O), Medical Supplies (Cl), Fusion Core (H), Explosive Charge (F), Plasma Cell (He & Ne), Energy Tube (Ne)More abundant elements, such as Hydrogen, Oxygen, and Nitrogen, are more useful than the rest.

Low Tech Factories

These factories are relatively easy to maintain. However, they do introduce basic production needs. Because of this, basic factories, other low tech factories, and/or trade routes are needed to maintain them.

Advanced Factories

Advanced Factories, for the time being, are quite….. advanced. They require a lot of different resources, pulling from lower-tech factories and some from other advanced factories. The rewards for such stations are quite high, as much of what they make can produce huge income.

AI Space Stations

AI stations are stations that hold no real industrial purposes and are almost entirely ran by AI but can be traded with and attract NPC traders to your sectors. Player-owned stations also allow you to freely take resources from them, offer lower prices, and give 20% of profits from NPC trading.
