Hello all editors and users of the Astroneer Wiki! We are in the process of updating and switching over to use the new Fandom Desktop skin on the wiki. There will be many changes over the coming days, but the main goal is to keep the wiki feeling the same, as much as we can! If you notice any issues once the swap is made, please post them to the Admin Noticeboard so we can address it right away. We are also going to be completing the update to the Astroneer Wiki:Style guide, so there is a more up to date guide on how to style the wiki going forward.
The main objective of the event is to have players utilize the Automation items to obtain resources instead of using items for points. Players are required to provide specific amounts of a resource, with four different resources required.
The EXO Automated Mass Production Protocol event first occured in 2020. It utilized the new Automation items that were added in the Automation Update. Gathering certain amounts of Compound, Aluminum, Aluminum Alloy, and Astronium granted players with cosmetics and different care packages. The AMPP 2020 ran from June 24, 2020 to August 4, 2020.
The EXO Automated Mass Production Protocol was repeated in 2021, running from June 22, 2021, to September 12, 2021. The AMPP was updated to require an increased amounts of resources required to obtain cosmetic rewards. The previous year's items were bundled and were given for completing the first milestone, with a new palette and Mask rewarded for the Aluminum and Aluminum Alloy tiers. Care packages were also updated to include QT-RTGs and EXO Chips.
Players are required to send the resources through the EXO Request Platform with the Medium Resource Canister, which can hold 32 items of one resource at a time. Players can also send 8 individual resources on the side of the EXO Request Platform, resulting in a maximum capacity of 40 items per launch. Each launch of the rocket costs 500 Bytes, no matter if the rocket has a full load or not.
Players may only send the currently requested resource in the rocket, and will be unable to send any other resources of other tiers of the event. For example, when Aluminum is requested, Compound or Aluminum Alloy cannot be sent up.
