Finding legacy Base Computers

Hey interlopers, I know we can recover our old bases but I think I still need some tiny bit of guidance.

So from what I understand, old base can be recovered by finding base computers “in the wild”.

I took this to mean, use signal booster, scan for habitable base.

It required navigation module to search for specific building, I happened to have three on me.

I clicked habitable outpost but each time it just showed an observatory or transmission tower so I’m guessing it’s not that option…

My question is, what’s easiest way to find old base terminals in wild to recover your old base? I still can’t figure it out and I’m afraid to try the upload option on portable base computer in case it wipes my old base.

Seriously loving this update guys :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes:


I saw in the Experimental patch they have a tutorial on recovering your old base. You might look into that.


I didn’t try to find my old base so i can’t help, but you can wait for the next patch which should have the easiest way:
“Added a tutorial mission to guide players through the restoration of their old base”

Edit: Happy cake day Wyo, you were faster :wink:


Thanks wyo and @kerdorin and happy cake day wyo.

I saw the experimental patch notes so I was thinking of waiting for patch to hit PS4 (sorry was not thinking, should have mentioned that vital peice of information in original post) but figured I’d see if anyone here actually knew in the meantime.

I could just Google it but I’d much rather hear it from you fine folk :slight_smile:-

Ilk just return to exploring and see if I don’t stumble upon the method sooner or later.

Thanks again! :heart:


The quest is really glitched for me

Same here :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Though I did get a nice free Freighter for defeating some Pirates

I just had to repair the little one as it got damaged on a mission :grimacing:


You get freighters as rewards now?!

It got called a Mothership and came with the little Frigate for killing the pirates attacking it, I didn’t have one as I had only just got to 100m :slightly_frowning_face:

I believe starting a new game, during primary missions you get a free freighter to introduce you to new fleet system :wink:
