A Core is required in order to build any of the four key Starter blocks (Base, Ground Vehicle, Small Vehicle, Capital Vehicle). Once a Base Starter most other components will have to touch it in some way (e.g. through a series of blocks).

Base options can be activated by pressing "P" at the core pannel, or by using the core remote in the pause menu while touching the BA. Base options show all attached components, and importantly provides controls and information for Generators and power consumption.

When used as part of a Base block to start a base, the Core should be well-protected. Its destruction could mean the loss of ownership over whatever is inside the base itself. Additionally, should there be any automated defense systems on the interior or exterior, the player will lose ownership over those as well.
