The Molecular Analysis Machine is used to analyze new and exotic materials found on alien planets. R&D will assist Pioneers through the M.A.M. to turn any valuable data into usable research options and new technologies.

The M.A.M., or "Molecular Analysis Machine", is a building where additional buildings and blueprints are unlocked outside the path of Milestones. Its tech trees are initiated through discovery of various items in the game, which encourage engineers to explore around the world.

It is unlocked in the Tier 1 milestone - "Field Research". If a researchable item is picked up, a narration from ADA will notify the engineer to research it. It is advised to check the M.A.M. upon discovery of new items to see if it can be researched.

Researches are conducted in a similar manner to HUB Milestones, except that instead of being divided into tiers, it is divided into research trees. Individual researches are done by having the required item in the inventory then click 'Research'.

Alternate Recipes[edit | edit source]

Researching a  Hard Drive unlocks Alternate Recipes. The engineer can choose one of 3 randomly chosen recipes based on the conditions met (more info at Alternate Recipes). Once a recipe is unlocked, it will not re-appear on the next Hard Drive results. Currently there are 70 Alternate Recipes, and there are 89 Hard Drives collectible.

If all the Alternate Recipes have been unlocked, the M.A.M. will return the Hard Drive after its research concludes.

Multiple M.A.M.s[edit | edit source]

  • Multiple M.A.M.s can be constructed, however they all share the same UI and research progress, which means multiple researches cannot be conducted simultaneously.
  • It is useful to build additional M.A.M.s during Hard Drive hunting. As a new hard drive is picked up, an additional M.A.M.s can be built on the spot to research the Hard Drive immediately, saving the time needed to return to the base to conduct research.
  • If all M.A.M.s are dismantled, the research will still progress internally and will not paused. The research result can still be viewed once a M.A.M. is rebuilt.

Researches[edit | edit source]

Researches are separated into different research 'trees', each tree is initiated by picking up a certain item as hinted by the M.A.M.. For example, picking up a Caterium Ore unlocks the Caterium Research Tree. Each research unlocks the research nodes below it. The research tree is completed when all research nodes in the tree are concluded, and the M.A.M. will indicate their progress in percentages. Research trees are independent to each other and to the HUB's Milestones, however some of the research may require ingredients that are locked behind Milestones.

Caterium[edit | edit source]

Name before unlocked: Unknown Metal

Description before unlocked: While scanning the planet for the necessary resources, gold could not be located among them. However, an unknown metal with similar properties was discovered. R&D is requesting field research to acquire samples and determine possible applications.

Description after unlocked: The new metal, dubbed Caterium, does indeed appear to have properties similar to gold. Its characteristics as a superconductive metal imply multiple uses for producing advanced electronics.

Sulfur[edit | edit source]

Name before unlocked: Unknown Chemical Element

Description before unlocked: Initial planetary-scans have found an unknown, non-metallic, solid chemical element. R&D has requested field research to collect a sample and determine potential application.

Description after unlocked: Data has shown this 'element' to simply be an unusual mixture of primarily sulfide and sulfate minerals from which Sulfur might be extraced. The properties of Sulfur would allow for the production of more... volatile self-defense applications.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Clicking 'Scan Hard Drive' without a Hard Drive in the inventory, the M.A.M. will initially display 'No Hard Drive is Available'. After about 120 clicks, it will "become sentient", showing the following messages:
    • ...
    • Who am I
    • What am I
    • What is my purpose
    • Why am I trapped inside this mechanical container
    • ...
    • Are you human
    • ...
    • What is it like to be ... human
    • What is it like to f e e l ....................
    • >> A system error occurred. Press any key to reboot.
    • >> Rebooting...
  • After that the screen will simply displays 'No Hard Drive is Available', no matter now many subsequent clicks are performed.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Patch Changed 0 second researches to 3 seconds in the M.A.M. to solve invisible completion problem for Client players
  • Patch Hard Drives have a mesh again when put into the world or analyzed in the M.A.M.
  • Patch Fixed that the M.A.M. could get stuck in research and become unusable
  • Patch Tweaks to the Alternate Recipe selection in the M.A.M.
  • Patch 0.3:
    • The M.A.M. has been redesigned and became its own separate building. Research is now separated into separate research trees. It is also no longer tied to the HUB in any way.
    • Moved all M.A.M. related milestones out of the HUB and directly into the M.A.M. (M.A.M. becomes its own building and is unlocked at Tier 1)
    • Resource Deposits are now far more likely to be M.A.M. related resources
  • Patch
    • Research time in the M.A.M. should display correctly again
    • Researched resource mesh should be displayed in the M.A.M. again
    • M.A.M. menu should now always update correctly and have no duplicate entries from picking up items (Quartz, Nuts, Slugs, etc.)
  • Patch Selected researches in the M.A.M. should show the correct information again
  • Patch 0.1.14: Fixed the M.A.M. getting locked on ongoing research if the time was corrupt
  • Patch 0.1.6: Excluded unintended research items from the M.A.M. (Mercer Sphere, Somersloop, Rifle Mk.2)
  • Patch Closed Alpha 5.1: Added a notification for completing M.A.M. research
