Outpost Vendors and Progression Crafting

Be Aware
Firefall is launching with Early Access on the 15th of July and officially on the 29th of July, as such a lot of the content below is not yet up to date with the game. We'll try to adapt everything as fast a possible, just bear with us!

The crafting system in Firefall already sits central to everything that motivates players to take part in the many gameplay features and events within New Eden. However crafters will find that the actions or inactions by players will define the limitations for crafting.This is because certain optional components are only available from crafting vendors that only appear when an outpost is at Power level 2 or higher. Further to this components for vehicles such as the Cobra P-39 and for unlocking the last 4 slots for your battleframe contraints are only available from vendors that appear for Power level 3 outposts.

HOW TO POWER UP AN OUTPOST

Outposts need Crystite Resonators to be deposited into Power Grid Amplifier terminals located within the outpost. At present these are found in Copacabana, Sunken Harbor, Trans-Hub and Thump Dump near to the SIN tower. When you use them a menu will appear asking how many resonators you want to deposit. For each one you gain 1000XP for whatever battleframe you are wearing at the time.

Each resonator adds 20 megawatts to the total and progress to new levels will change when enough megawattage is reached. Level 1 is the basic power level and the outpost will change to level 2 once 1024 megawatts is deposited. An outpost will change from level 2 to level 3 once 2048 megaways of power is donated. Once an outpost is at level 3 it cannot progress further and will remain at level 3 as long as it doesn't run out of power. This will start to happen 5 mintues after the last Resonator was deposited into the terminal and will continue to decrease every 1 minute and 30 seconds. Players will reset this 5 minute decay timer each time they deposit another Resonator.

Different power levels will unlock different features except for level 1;

Power Level 1

  •  no special features or services

 
Power Level 2

  • a bonus to the passive effect the outpost gives to players in the world
  • crafting component vendors
  • increased SIN tower and detector range
  • increased Accord NPC presence
  • fixed gun defences

Power Level 3

  • a bonus to the passive effect the outpost gives to players in the world
  • increased SIN tower and detector range
  • increased Accord NPC presence
  • mobile SIN drones, AA guns and energy barriers
  • Accord Particle Cannon weapon racks
  • special component vendors (Classified Tech and Vehicle Components)

If you are ever uncertain of the power level each outpost is currently at you can check them from the main world map, a indicator bar will alow display at the top of the screen as you enter the area around the Outpost.

PROGRESSION CRAFTING

Battleframe progression now requires additional crafted items to unlock the final constraint upgrades for Power, Mass and CPU. These items can be created in the Molecular Printers like any other item however the two of the components they require are very rare and only available to be purchased from special vendors in outposts at Power level 3. This means that each player has an invested interest in keeping the outposts well defended and charged up with crystite resonators. Each battleframe will however require different components and these are only available from specific outposts.
