So since quite a few people seem confused on how the new portal system works, I figure I’d give a quick guide for us.
Finding a Portal
Every planet has a portal now. You can find them by randomly flying around and scanning, but the easiest way is to find a monolith and offer up a treasure related to the race that owns the system (i.e. Korvax Cube in a Korvax System). The Monolith will then mark the portal on your HUD.
Activating a Portal
Once you find a Portal, you must then activate it by feeding it resources. You have to feed resources to each of the 16 glyphs; they go in order from isotopes, then oxides, and then finally silicates. Once you activate all 16, the portal will then give you your home address. SCREENSHOT THIS. Also note that you should place a beacon next to the portal since it will NOT be automarked on your HUD.
Activating the Glyphs
This last part requires a lot of legwork. In order to use a portal to travel outside of story bits, you must find all 16 glyphs on the graves of dead Travelers. To do so, you’ll need to find Travelers in space stations and trading posts. Trade them 100 nanites and they’ll mark their grave for you, where you can acquire a glyph.
