How does Storage work?

I seem to have some “LocalStorage”; How much do I have? When will I know when I need more? I assume everything I buy will need storage, but I only see area requirements mentioned in the screens I’ve come across.

Hi there! :wave:

Your Core Module has a capacity of 5.000 (cubic meters or tonnes). Open your base’s inventory to see how much you’re currently using up:


If you need more space, you can construct a storage facility in the Infrastructure tab.

Edit: Area requirements pertain to buildings, not to commodities!
