Planetary interaction was introduced with the Tyrannis expansion and adds an element of depth to industrial processes by letting players interact with planets to mine their wonderful goo.
This is my guide to such - I'll try not to get too involved and keep it simple so anyone can get to grips with the basics in a short of time as possible.
So what do you need to get started? You'll need some basic skills to begin with
Those are the basic skills and it's up to you how far you want to train into them, though I'd say focus more on command centre upgrades as it allows you to put more down on a planet but absolutely get remote sensing to level 1 before starting.
Further to those skills, these are complementary and will help later on when you get more advanced
Setting down on a planet is as simple as choosing a planet, putting the planet type command centre in a ship with a big enough cargohold. I'll go into planet types and their available resources later on in the guide.
But once the command centre is in the cargohold warp off to the planet and then right click to view it in planet mode - once in there you'll be able to drop the command centre down on the planet and it will disappear from your hold. You do not need to interface with the customs office to do this - it'll tell you to feck off.
There are 8 main types:
Each of these have their own resource types available, given by this table:
These are the base resources, after that there are an additional 4 tiers of products you can make from these - with each tier of product requiring the last, e.g. Tier 4 products will require T3 products etc.
