Pixels are a universal currency. They can also be used for 3D Printing.

Pixels are the main currency in Starbound and are required for many functions, such as purchasing items from NPC vendors, printing items using the Pixel Printer, as well as being an ingredient in many crafting recipes.

Obtaining Pixels

There are multiple ways of which pixels may be acquired. These include: killing monsters, searching chests and destroying breakables, completing quests, selling crops, collecting rent, and by refining ores at a Refinery.

Saving Pixels

When the player dies in casual difficulty they'll lose 10% of the pixels they currently have. Other modes they will lose 30%. Pixels can't be directly stored in containers, but the player can use a Pixel Compressor to compress pixels into voxels, which can be safely stored. Voxels can then be extracted at a later time for usable pixels.

Pixel Farming

There are several ways of viably amassing large amount of Pixels:

  • If a player can invest 200,000 Pixels into 20 of each elemental Fluffalo egg, the resulting herd will produce 20 each of the elemental items. These can be exchanged at Treasured Trophies for 20 Perfectly Generic Item, which can be crafted into one Perfect Trousers. This sells for 10,000 Pixels--12.5x as much as its raw ingredients. This process can be done once every ~15 minutes, and can be expanded to bigger herds.
