Where To Buy Ship Modules In Starfield?

Designing or upgrading your ship requires knowledge of the ship modules.

You can easily lose many hours in shipbuilding, a core aspect of Starfield. After all, traversing the stars in your trusty spacecraft is something you’ll be doing for a long. So, what’s the harm in taking the time to idle away and mix and match different ship modules in Starfield to create your own uniquely designed ship?

You can get replacements and upgrades for your weapons, engines, fuel tanks, cargo holds, bays, dockers, and even structural components to name a few. So there is a lot of freedom with what you want your ship to do and appear.


Unwanted and extra ship parts can be used during ship repairs to bring your fleet back to maximum health. Each part restores 10% of ship health over 4 seconds and costs a few credits only.

There are two main ways to acquire ship parts in Starfield by purchasing from the manufacturers or landing zone vendors, or by salvaging them from the wrecks of other ships. The latter is a bit unreliable since you have little control over what you get, if you find some that is.

Before you purchase ship modules, make sure they match the reactor class of your Starfleet. This means that if you have a class A ship then you can only install the class A modules onto the ship. If you add something from a higher class, like Class C, you will see a warning stating it is exceeding the reactor class and will not allow you to equip it onto the ship.

Below is a list of some noteworthy vendors from where you can buy and unlock ship modules in Starfield:

Manufacturers shops locations you can buy ship modules from

While there are 19 ship manufacturers in Starfield, only four have shipyards. You must head to their shipyards to buy unique ship modules from these manufacturers. For the remaining 15 manufacturers, you can go to any shipyard or ship services technician and get their ship parts.

Each vendor has a unique inventory and a few parts can be exclusively carried by certain manufacturers only. So make sure to check what others have before making the final decision.

Ship modules you can buy from Landing Zones

Other than the manufacturers, you can find the ship parts and modules in the local shops of a planet near their landing zones in Starfield. Note that, some parts are only available in their inventory after you have reached a certain level.

Cydonia: On the surface of Mars. You can find Deimos and Nova Galactic ship parts here.

New Atlantis: On Planet Jemison in the Alpha Centauri system. You can get Nova Galactic and Deimos ship parts in New Atlantis in Starfield.

Use the Outpost Ship Builder

If you have a large landing pad, you can get a lot of ship parts directly from the shipbuilder kiosk in Starfield. However, large items like the HABs and cockpits will require you to visit the respective manufacturers. You can also view, inspect, upgrade, and install your modules here after you have acquired them.

Can you craft Ship Modules in Starfield?

Well, not to disappoint you, but the answer to this question is NO. You can’t craft Ship modules in Starfield and can only purchase them from specific vendors.
