|“||Zynthium is a remarkable mineral with many unusual properties. It can be used to build extremely strong armor.||”|
|— In game description|
It was removed some time after the official release of VEGA Conflict for redundancy reasons early in game.
Although removed, it served as a essential resource as it was used constantly
The resource was heavily used in the research of heavy armor plates or alloys for hulls or bases. This made it important for tanking builds as Zynthium was the strongest armor at the time.
- Alongside Resource
It is was also used with other resources in upgrades that weren't involving armor. It was sometimes used more or less than the other 3 and was an extra thing to grind for, for upgrades.
The second way of getting Zynthium early on, players can put powered Zynthium Miners next to Asteroids to slowly mine and collect Zynthium. However many players do not use this strategy due to how low of resource you get or how slow it can be.
The normal method of obtaining Zynthium is by attack specific VEGA Corporation fleets marked with Zynthium or simply attack the sector Version VEGA fleets.
Stealing resources from player bases are very common, many simply snipe the players Storage Modules and leave unscratched. It wasn't as effective as today's stealing but still a way to get it
The least favorable method, you can simply coin all of your Zynthium, however it needs verification and is unknown how much you could fill up
- Zynthium would later become the name of the heavy ship armor Zynthium.
- Zynthium was also obtainable via mining with a Zynthium Miner.
