Buying asteroids in Influence is a individual choice and there is a lot to consider before making that choice. With 250k asteroids to choose from it can feel overwhelming, but this guide will walk you through the basics and help you find an asteroid quickly and purchase easily.
NOTE: For more advanced purchasing decisions, it is recommended to seek out community content or ask questions in Discord.
Surface area (km2) equates to the total amount of buildings that can be constructed on an asteroid. If you want to build an alliance, play with friends, build marketplaces, or rent out space, you will want a larger asteroid.
Spectral type determines the general abundances of a set of resources available to mine. Choose solo spectral types (C, M, I, S) if you want highly specialized play and multi-spectral types (CI, CM, CS, CMS, CIS, SI, SM) if you want more flexible resource access.
These characteristics determine the path your asteroid travels around the belt relative to the star of Adalia and other asteroids. Each of the properties will effect different strategic decisions.
