Astroneer Wiki

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.

Uses[]

Scrap is required to use the Trade Platform, with each resource requiring different amounts of scrap. When the player places enough scrap in the slots and presses the button, it will take roughly 50 seconds to return with the resources.

Resource Class Target Resource Scrap:Resource ratio
Class 1 Compound 1:2
Resin
Organic
Clay
Quartz
Graphite
Sphalerite
Class 2 Ammonium 1:1
Laterite
Malachite
Class 3 Wolframite 3:2
Hematite
Class 4 Titanite 2:1
Class 5 Lithium 4:1
  • Scrap:Resource ratio means for every X scrap, you get Y resource in return (e.g. 1:2 means for every 1 scrap, you get 2 resource.)

Trivia[]

  • When you confirm a trade, the Trade Platform blasts into space before shortly returning to its "dock", implying that the planetary system the Player is on is relatively close to humanity. There may also be a possibility that the Trade Platform delivers the scrap to the LREV.
  • As of version 1.0, The Trade Platform can still be used without being placed on a platform and does not require power to operate.
