Howdy folks and welcome, today we will be going over the most efficient one harvest farm there is out of the big 3.
This farm runs on a cycle of 2 hours and is configured to only be harvested once in that period.
It is the most profitable farm model out of the big 3 for single harvests, as a lot of people like to explore for decent lengths of time and don't want to have to come back and harvest every 15 or 30 minutes.
Also, travellers who visit your farm will benefit most from this configuration due to it only requiring that single harvest, so they don't have to stick around for 2 or more to get their items and can head off to another location while it resets.
The planet I will be building this example farm on will be fully operational and available to visit for anyone on PC in Euclid playing on Normal.
It has also been filed into the Farmers Market farm database.
So let's go over this farm;
It creates 20 Circuit Boards per Cycle... kind of, I say 'kind of' as to fit within the 2000 limit, I had to drop 3 Star Bramble, but fear not, you can easily find those 3 to harvest very close by to the actual base and will be marked with comms stations for super quick finding.
It features a Galactic Trade Terminal with everything else focusing on the farm itself.
The full list of buildable items is;
- 1x Galactic Trade Terminal
- 10x Bio-Domes
- 1x Ladder
- 10x Doors (This Can be Holodoors or Normal Doors)
- 1x Large Hydroponic Tray
- 1x Cuboid Room
- 40x Frostwort
- 80x Solar Vine
- 20x Echinocactus
- 157x Star Bramble
To build all of this you will need;
- 500x Emeril
- 5x Circuit Boards
- 6x Voltaic Cells
- 20x Living Glass
- 50x Glass
- 800x Titanium
- 375x Iron
- 5x Zinc
- 8110x Carbon
- 11880x Thamium
- 4000x Frost Crystal
- 8000x Solanium
- 2000x Cactus Flesh
- 15700x Star Bulb
If you want Holodoors instead, you will need a further 500 Carbon, 2500 Radon & 2500 Sulphurine or 10 Organic Catalyst if you already have them crafted.
- For 5 Circuit Boards you'll need 500 Frost Crystal, 1000 Solanium, 500 Cactus Flesh and 1000 Star Bulb, make all that into 5 Heat Capacitors and 5 Poly Fibre and make those into the 5 Boards
- For the 6 Voltaic Cells, you will need 300 Marrow Bulb which can be gathered in caves from glowing Marrow Bulb plants.
- The 20 Living Glass will require 8000 Gamma Root, 5000 Frost Crystal and 1000 Coprite, make these materials into 20 Lubricant and 20 Glass, combine those to make your 20 Living Glass.
- Finally, for the 50 Glass, you will simply need 12500 Frost Crystal which you can craft into 50 Glass.
A good tip here is to use cheap iron corridors to space your Bio-Domes neatly then delete the corridors.
Then outside on the planet surface plant the 157 Star Bramble, now this may get annoying, as far as placement is concerned, you can plant them anywhere within the circular base restriction.
Using them between the doors of the domes can provide a fun way of creating a path for your harvesting route, using the default building and the cuboid room as a guide can make them look more appealing, but avoid going more than 2 deep as it can get annoying later when harvesting, also try not to plant them very very close to each other or buildings as they do not have clipping restrictions and will happily phase through walls which can be troublesome for harvesting.
This is a frankly insane amount of materials required especially the Star Bulb, 15700 star bulb will require you to harvest 628 Star Bramble to procure so I would advise checking out the Farmers Market to find player bases near portals that you can visit and gain large amounts of the required crops
This farm will create 20 Circuit Boards which are valued at 1,315,875 each based on the Galactic Average for a grand total of 26,317,500 per harvest.
While this is not at all the highest per hour farm, it is certainly the highest per harvest, and as Circuit Board are worth the most per item, this will also give you the highest concentration of value per slot when selling later on.
When selling you can achieve a sale of 215 at once making great use of a rare deal at a space station by utilizing all 43 slots in a 48 slot Hauler, I say all 43 as 5 of those slots cannot be reclaimed for storage purposes due to the technology permanently in place.
So go and build your Circuit Board farm and make millions, also don't forget to drop by and visit this farm to harvest a bunch of materials for yourself.
I hope this article helped you in some way and if it did, maybe think about checking out my Patreon, a dollar a month is a great way to support the website and my work while also giving you early access to the videos on Xaine's World.
but above all, have an awesome day folks!
