Better Rewards boosts the quantity of units, nanite clusters, and quicksilver you get for completing missions or interacting with environment items. Non-npc word learning is also quicker (e.g., knowledge stones, monoliths, and dictionaries). Frigate (Freighter) Expeditions are now available as a standalone mod!

Every patch have 4 versions:

  • BetterRewards: This is the main mod
  • BetterFrigateRewards: This changes Frigther Mission rewards
  • BetterFrigateRewards+BetterRewards: Merged mod with the above 2
  • BetterRewardsNoWR: Everything that the main mod has to offer minus Words and Resources increase


Currency gain is typically multiplied by five, making it a viable alternative in addition to creating and selling valuable tradeables. To make the early game less grindy, several unit values were greatly raised (for example, from 1000-2000 to 20000-50000), such as terminals in abandoned villages.


  • Space station missions and Nexus missions
  • Interactable objects/devices (abandoned buildings, damaged machinery, waypoints, etc.)
  • Sentinels
  • Alien interactions


It is also three times quicker to learn words via non-npc interactions (knowledge stones, monoliths, plaques, and dictionaries) (3 words learned form a single knowledge stone).


When collecting using the mining beam, you often acquire three times the amount of resources (but only when the things explode as you mine them). Containers, depots, guild awards, asteroids, and ships that drop materials are also included.
