Planet IX is covered with the waste left by the ancient civilization. In order to restore the Planet and make it inhabitable once again, the A.o.C’s mission is to clear the Planet of the harmful waste. Players can clean the planet without owning any assets, making Planet IX a robust free-to-play and play-to-earn gaming ecosystem.
How is Waste collected?
Waste is collected through various in-game functions, and will serve as a core asset for this first season of Planet IX. Waste can be collected in the following ways:
- 1.Placing land (PIX and Territories) on a tile in Mission Control which will continuously generate waste for players to collect
- 2.Placing technology on a tile in Mission Control. Drones can be sent out on a tile to collect waste at a faster rate. Be on the lookout for future contraptions and upgrades that will be available through Y_ that will further increase waste collection
- 3.Raiding other player’s Mission Control. This is not a guaranteed success, but it might yield large rewards
What is Waste used for?
Once Waste is collected, it is up to the player to decide how it should be repurposed. There are two options:
- 1.Refine Waste at GWS (Global Waste Systems) in return for Astro Credits. Refining waste will take time for GWS to process the waste
- 2.Filter Waste at EternaLab in return for the possibility of uncovering Bio-M0ds, BluePrints or Easter Eggs. Success is not always guaranteed, and it will take time to prospect the waste.
The introduction of waste creates a unique opportunity for players to experiment with different strategies and optimize for waste collection. Collecting waste is an active function, and therefore users will have to check in on Mission Control to collect the waste on time or risk a stoppage in waste collection.
