The Resources you gather must be stored in specialized buildings or they will be lost.
There are 4 types of resources: Bulk, Volatiles, UnitLarge and UnitSmall. They have their specialized buildings:
- Volatiles: Liquid Gas Tank . Store goods such as Oxygen and CO2.
- UnitLarge: Hangar . Store goods such as Containers.
- UnitSmall: Self-storage Depot . Store goods such as Moonshine.
At the beginning you are given a very basic capacity. These different buildings increase this storage capacity, or 'limit'. The more you build, the more you can store on your base.
Ships also have a storage limit. It is displayed when you are doing a market transaction.
