Uses[edit | edit source]

The Medium Canister holds the same amount of Soil as 16 Small Canisters.

Soil can either be extracted into or deposited from a Small Canister by toggling which mode the Medium Canister is in.

When used with the Soil Centrifuge and a Small Canister to move the soil from the Medium Canister to the Centrifuge, large amounts of resources can be created, useful for building new bases on other planets. A full Medium Canister can be used to create 64 Compound, 64 Resin, 64 Organic, 48 Clay, 32 Quartz, 16 Graphite, or 8 Ammonium.

When attached to a rover with a drill the Medium Canister will quickly fill up with soil when digging with the drill.

Notes[edit | edit source]

When packaged with a Packager, the Medium Canister will not retain any soil when unpackaged.
