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.
Limited Time Events, or "LTEs" for short, are events that are run by System Era, sometimes in benefit of real life charities, or just to give players rewards for playing certain parts of the game. They give cosmetic rewards, as well as care packages of different useful items, depending on the LTE. Planets that the LTE may be completed on show an aurora over the northern pole.
The EXO F.A.R.M. event is the current running LTE, starting on September 15, 2021 and will run for 75 days. It is a return of the EXO Biofuel Obtainment Operation event from 2020, with some changes. Cauldrangea and Sturdysquash are now located on Sylva, Calidor and Atrox, with different Cauldrangea offering faster production times. Cauldranga can be found using the Compass when nearby. Use of the new Proximity Repeater could allow for faster completion of the event, as it can helps speed up planting and gathering of seeds and sturdysquash samples.
Players were encouraged to use automation items, such as the Auto Extractor and Auto Arms to obtain the resources. Rewards from the 2020 version were given for completing the first objective, with new rewards available as well from the second and third objectives. This event ended early September.
