As easy as it is to spend hours exploring the surface of just one planet in an essentially-infinite galactic setting of PS4 and PC sci-fi No Man's Sky, eventually the urge to visit other worlds sets in. With 18 quintillion planets out there, spending too much time on just one seems a bit of a waste.

To move from planet to planet requires red isotope elements like Carbon, Thanium9 and Plutonium, which are plentiful and found on every planet.

To move from star system to star system requires a Warp Cell, Antimatter, two other crafted materials and a little more work.

So here's your IBTimes UK guide to crafting all of the above.

Given the nature of the game (each player will mostly see and explore entirely different, procedurally generated planets to each other) we can't give any real specifics on where to go, but we can give you can idea of what to look out for.

No Man's Sky nudges players along an early introductory path that teaches them the basics of the game and ends with them able to activate their Hyperdrive and shoot off to another star system. Along the way you'll get the blueprints required to make everything.

Below is everything you'll need, the order you'll need to make them and where to find each material.

Step One: Suspension Fluid

  • Carbon (50)

Step Two: Electron Vapour

  • Suspension Fluid
  • Plutonium (100)

Step Three: Antimatter

  • Electron Vapour
  • Heridium (50)
  • Zinc (20)

Step Four: Warp Cell

  • Antimatter
  • Thanium9 (100)

With the Warp Cell crafted, simply use it to fuel your Hyperdrive and you're off. Good luck, traveller.
