Stranded Alien Dawn energy crystal farming – everything you need to know about it

To farm crystals in Stranded Alien Dawn, you need to first research power cell manufacture in the technology tree. Once you’ve researched the technology, you can then select energy crystals as a crop in the farming menu.

Once you’ve planted the energy crystal crop, you will have to wait 24 in-game days for it to grow before you can harvest it, so make sure you’re thinking ahead and planning accordingly.

Most crops only take from five to eight days before they’re ready to harvest, like hay, clothblossom, and shrooms. Energy crystals are also very susceptible to temperature, and when it drops below freezing, the crystals start to get damaged by the conditions.

This means that you’ll struggle to get an energy crystal farm up and running in your first year, so be prepared.

That’s everything you need to know about farming the brittle resources in the strategy game Stranded Alien Dawn. If you want to read more tips and tricks on the game, then head over to our guides on how to get the mech core and our best seeds tier list to help you out.

Damiano Gerli was born with a faithful Commodore 64 by his side. It taught him how to program basic adventure games and introduced him to new genres. Then, he fell in love with Sega -- while the Master System wasn't as powerful as the Genesis, it was where he played Sonic and Outrun. Years later, he got the idea that he was the most Sega-knowledgeable person in the world, so he opened a website in 1997, The Genesis Temple. Damiano is a gaming industry professional and historian, loves adventure and indie titles, but he never shies away from action and triple-A RPGs. Basically, Damiano is been writing about videogames for 20 years, with no plans to stop. Say hi to him on X at @damgentemp.
