Build Depots – Once you have started gathering resources and goods start building depots to store them.
You can use multiple Scanners – Many players don’t realize that the scanner stacks with each stack the speed is increased by 10% and also increases the detection of natural threats in the region.
Always Have Sufficient Drones To Get Things Done – if you notice extractors stopping because of stones rubbles collecting around, repair and unload take a long time, and just other goods piling up then its time to get more drones. build a drone hub to manage them
