Freighter build problems


Still using my old freighter in Normal. Thought that I’d put back the Storage Containers. They only go in certain places and when built there a large gap appears on either side. Just me or has this happened to others?

One place that I tried turned out to be behind a sign for area 1. Build it but couldn’t access it through the sign.

Haven’t played for a while. Is there a way to delete things that you’ve built? If there is, please tell me how to do it.


Are you on PC or console?


Sorry, I should have specified. I’m on PC.


So on this image, you can see that at the bottom, there is a list of building controls. “F” to place, “R” to rotate, etc.
(I think this image is from pre-NEXT so it may be different.)
You can also see that “CTRL” is for delete/color mode.
Press and hold CTRL to activate the Delete/color mode. Pushing F in that mode deletes the highlighted part.


Thank you! I had forgotten how to select the object for deletion.


I had the same problem too but I figured out a fix after falling to my doom when testing if those holes were real :slight_smile:

You know those 4 way corridors ? Place one surrounded by walled off areas with one way in and you can place a Container Vault in each corridor end :slight_smile:


I had the same issue tonight, and I only just bought a new freighter


Thanks! Now that I know how to move things, I’ll give a try!


Appreciate the information. I won’t be tempted to change freighters then.


PS4 had the same issue . Fell to my death through the freighter.


I also have those holes around my vaults. I figured they were real and decided not to hunt a glitch or restart by going into it.

I just consider them to be very clean windows.


Do you have multiple vaults?
I put a decorative trilley planter either side of my freighter vault…just in case.


What I call vaults, I am talking about the storage units (0-9). But that leads me to the question: you have a vault specifically for your freighter?


Hey who votes that they add 5 more storage locations to each of the 10 Storage Vaults we already have in the game ?) I am totally running out of space with all my combined Ships, Freighter and the Storage :slight_smile:


Got around to using the Freighter Cross Junction today. Connected two of them to hold the five Storage Containers. Works great! No more gaps in the structure!


No just a regular vault, but I’m only allowed one per base (including my freighter). I used to have a wall of them.
Now I’ll need 10 separate bases to access my boxes (or do what I’m currently doing and swap them out as I need stuff)

Does this let you have multiple vaults?
I’ve got to try this!


Storage Containers (vaults?) can be located on your freighter or base. There are ten of them numbered from 0 to 9. You can put some at both places or all of them at one location.


Ok…Since the 1.5 update I get a message stating LIMIT ONE PER BASE.


I think that that means you can only deploy each of them once. So if you’ve placed Storage Container 0 then you need to pick a different one for the next placement.


Oh? I must have been trying to place one incorrectly and assumed the message meant I couldn’t. I’ll have another go next time.
Might have nerfed myself :clown_face:
