Zynthium Plates are the strongest base armor in the game that can be researched, only surpassed by the Capacitive plates blueprint. Players in their mid level stages finish unlocking this armor, and some will use it on their modules to have maximum possible health.
It is advised that Zynthium Plates be used as fast as you can as soon as you finish researching it. However, it also makes repairs increasingly long. However, base repairs cost nothing, so it makes no difference unlike ship repairs, which cost millions of helium-3 if equipped with end game technology.
Strategy and Setup
Zynthium Plates is a researchable plate making it very easy to obtain and is very abundant with players. So unlike blueprint plates which take a considerable amount of grinding you can simply research it without relying on luck.
Along with this they give high armor and can be equipped on all modules infinitely. They are commonly seen on high end modules if the player does not have Capacitive Plates III.
As Zynthium Plates is the best researchable plate in the game, it is also the most costly to research and repair which makes very hefty repair times on hulls maxed with armor.
Zynthium Plates is also easily outclassed by Capacitive Plates III in terms of armor.
They also take up alot of mass especially on level V which usually can be bad trying to also get a veyr heavy turret on the combat module as well.
- Zynthium Plates are the second strongest base armor in the game, surpassed only by Capacitive Plates.
- They cost the most mineral ore and most time to research.
- It previously was called Zynthium Alloy and so was the ship version, but was changed to Zynthium Plates after the removal of Zynthium to avoid confusion with Zynthium.
