As any aspiring explorer in Starfield knows, finding valuable resources like aluminum or cobalt is the first step toward building an interstellar empire. To truly profit from these discoveries and establish a reliable mining operation, you’ll need to set up an outpost – and that requires gaining levels in the Planetary Habitation skill. We’ll explain how to level up Planetary Habitation in Starfield quickly.
