How to Build Outposts in Starfield

You can build Outposts early in the game. Unlocking the right skills later will allow you to build more and use better modules. Outpost building in Starfield is modular and relies on structures you connect to each other. There are various structures you can use. From habitation modules to military structures and production units. There are even watchtowers you can build in your Outpost, for extra security. There is a build limit when you create an Outpost, so you cannot keep adding structures to it. For a detailed Outposts Guide you can read How to Build an Outpost in Starfield!

How do Outposts Work in Starfield

Outposts require power and a crew to work! The more structures you add, the bigger your needs in power will be. You will have to find the right balance, so the Outpost can work efficiently without power issues. Outposts will also benefit from having a crew. You can assign crew members or even Companions to a specific Outpost, based on their skills and field of expertise! Companions and Crew have specific skills that can be beneficial when they are assigned to an Outpost!
