This article will guide you on how to build your base and fleet quickly.
When we first start, we have a few resources (⚡ Electricity, 🔩 Metal and 💎 Crystal), so first thing we want to do is to go to the 🏬 Technology Center. This building will enable us to research our Technology Level to be able to build more advanced buildings.
Click 🏭 Buildings (or type it) click on the link next to the 🏬 Technology Center, it will look something like
/building4. Then click on
/newjobresearchtechnology. This will start researching Technology Level 1, which will enable us to build more buildings such as the 🏗 Starport (to build units), 🗼 Light Laser (to defend from enemies) or 📡 Radar (to warn us when an attack is incoming).
While we wait, let's build some of the most important buildings in the game: Resource and Storage buildings.
Go to 🏭 Buildings, 🚧 New Building and build 3 🌋 Metal Mines and 3 ⛰ Crystal Mines to gather 🔩 Metal and 💎 Crystal, we will need more 🔩 Metal at the start. There is another resource called ⚡ Electricity, but we can manage with what we've got for now.
Now build a 🏢 Warehouse, each will increase storage for 🔩 Metal and 💎 Crystal.
Priority #1 is researching Technology until we get to build 🇬🇬 Scouts, with the remaining resources aim for 8 🌋 Metal Mines, 8 ⛰ Crystal Mines and 4 🌞 Solar Panels to gather resources, 3 🏢 Warehouses and 1 🔋 Battery.
And now we wait… SpaceHunt is a game that doesn't require our full attention all the time, and does many things passively. Go grab a coffee or chat with your friends and come back in a bit.
Now that we know how to build, you may have seen that there are other menus: 🖥 Dashboard, 🛸 Missions, ✈️ Units, 🔱 Guild and 📋 Log.
Let's quickly see what each does:
The Dashboard is really helpful because it sums up what is going on:

You can change your name to something else by typing
We will be able to launch explorations, raids and transfers.
Lists all the units we've got.
When we have enough level, joining a guild will make us stronger.
See important past messages that we may have missed.
Once we have researched Technology Level 1 we can build the 🏗 Starport. Go build it!
Let's also build a 🛫 Hangar so we can store Units. It will take 30 minutes more or less, build resources and storage but keep 💎1,000 for our first unit (the 🇲🇴 Observer) when the 🏗 Starport is completed!
While doing all this, keep researching the Technology level since it will unlock necessary jobs, buildings and units for the future.
Go to 🛸 Missions and click on 🛰 New Exploration. Select the 🇲🇴 Observer (or type
/add1observer) and then click on 🛫 Depart! (or type
Exploring gives us a 70% chance to find new planets which we can [raid] later. Before raiding, it is wise to explore 3-5 planets so we can raid the lowest level ones first without the risk of getting destroyed.
By now we probably have a nice resource production rate. If not, keep building Mines until we get to 15-20 Mines of each (the maximum is 20). Yes, we want that many, it's free resources!
Once we can build the 🧪 Engineering Bay, do so and research ⚙ Production which will give us a nice boost in all our Mines and Solar Panels.
Sooner or later someone will attack us, there's two strategies we can do:
Also, keep building until we reach the maximum planet slots, to give you an idea, my current resource/storage is 5 🔋 Batteries, 10 🏢 Warehouses, 10 🌞 Solar Panels, 20 🌋 Metal Mines and 20 ⛰ Crystal Mines.
It is not until late in game that we will be able to extend our building slots so we will need to optimize space demolishing things that are not strictly necessary.
Head over to the Wiki to learn more about specific Buildings/Units as well as find reference tables for costs and durations of every building, job and unit. Two very interesting pages are the 🏬 Technology Center and the 🧪 Engineering Bay. Also, check the 📳 Random tips, and then, move to the 🛡 Intermediate Guide or join a guild.
You can also join the community at the official SpaceHunt chat at @SpaceHuntGame where players and developers chat about the game, ask and answer questions, post announcements, etc.
