With the release of Genesis: Part 2 on June 3rd, 2021 came a new Space biome and coordinating supply crate colors. The map itself is split in two with a Space biome allowing players to get certain resources such as gems, element, ambergris, black pearls, and even mutagel.
This new DLC is actually a ship. Starting around midnight, the ship will enter warp then arrive at a new location at 1:30 AM. Each location allows players to harvest a different resource, which can be determined by several methods we’ll go over here.
How to Determine the Space Biome Resources by Supply Crate Colors or Skybox
To start, I’ve included a quick reference guide that goes over the basics. Keep reading to view the full information on the Space biome, resources, and supply crate colors.

Resource Guide for Space Biome in Genesis Part 2
Every biome features metal rocks which also result in stone. Some have more while others are less, but you can always get metal in the Space biome.
How Do I figure Out Which Days Are Which Resources In the Space Biome on Genesis 2?
Unfortunately, the space biome is randomly decided each night, and you might get the same color in a row. During testing, I spent about 15 in-game days on Genesis 2 before I ever saw Orange supply crates (which give black pearls).
If you have access to a cluster of servers, you can import needed supplies. Missions will also help increase the output of resources in the asteroid field, so it’s helpful to have certain mission buffs running while farming the materials in space.
