Cryosanctum industry.png

An enormous tomb-like vault built to store those who choose to risk cryosleep to pass this time of troubles to wake in what will presumably be a more civilized age. The cryopods themselves are insignificant in size compared to the many-times redundant support infrastructure, massive automated security systems and anti-ship batteries, all housed in a branching subsurface fortress-labyrinth.

–In-game description

Cryosanctum is a special non-industry structure. It can only be found on the planet Nomios (controlled by Independents) in the Arcadia star system.



Cryosanctum does not provide any benefits to the colony.


Cryosanctum has a base upkeep of 10 000 credits, increasing by the same amount for each colony size past 3.


Cryosanctum produces the following commodities;


Cryosanctum demands the following commodities;


  • If Nomios becomes decivilized or is destroyed by a saturation bombardment, the Cryosanctum industry is lost and cannot be rebuilt if the player establishes a colony. This makes it impossible to financially exploit a Cryosanctum in a player colony.
  • A shortage of either supplies or organics on the colony will increase organ production by 1. In-universe, this is presumably because some pods can no longer be supported, freeing their bodies for "recycling".
