Heat Capacitors are one of the valuable resources in No Man's Sky, but crafting them is daunting for some players, especially those who are just getting started. A Heat Capacitor is a thermal regulator produced from refined organic material. It is unique in its ability to produce, dissipate and distribute heat as required.
With that said, here's a comprehensive guide to crafting Heat Capacitor in No Man's Sky.
What is Heat Capacitor in No Man's Sky
The No Man's Sky Heat Capacitor is a rare type of thermal regulator that utilizes refined organic material to effectively regulate heat by producing, dissipating, and distributing it as necessary.
It has a total value of 180,000.0 Units and is considered a valuable resource. This component is particularly useful in creating advanced technological devices and systems that require stable and controlled heat transfer.
How to Get Heat Capacitor in No Man's Sky
As you progress in No Man's Sky's main storyline, Apollo will guide you to expand your base and recruit new members. This will trigger a 'Scientific Research' mission, which ultimately results in acquiring the Heat Capacitor blueprint. You can also buy this blueprint for 250 Nanites from the Synthesis Laboratory.
To make one heat capacitor, you will need 100 frost crystals and 200 solanium. This means that you will need to plant at least four trays of solanium and two trays of frost crystals to make one heat capacitor. If you want to make ten heat capacitors, you will need to plant at least 40 trays of solanium and 20 trays of frost crystals.
How To Farm Frost Crystals and Solanium in No Man's Sky
Once you have the blueprint, you have to farm the necessary resources to craft Heat Capacitors. To do this, you must find a planet with frost crystals and solanium. Solanium can be found on hot planets, while frost crystals can be found on cold planets. Once you have located these resources, you will need to farm them.
Base farming and freighter farming are two ways to farm these resources. Base farming involves building a base on a planet and using hydroponic bays or biodomes to grow the necessary resources. On the other hand, freight farming involves building hydroponic bays or trays on your freighter and growing the necessary resources there.
To farm frost crystals and solanium on your freighter, you must build hydroponic bays or trays and plant the necessary resources. It is important to note that farming for solanium is more time-consuming than farming for frost crystals. It takes approximately 16 hours to farm solanium, while it only takes an hour to farm frost crystals.
It is worth noting that freighter farming is more efficient for larger farms. Base farming may be more efficient if you are only farming for a few heat capacitors. Biodomes on a base can hold up to 16 plants and are more efficient than hydroponic bays on a freighter.
So there you have it. That's everything you need to know about crafting Heat Capacitor in No Man's Sky.
