    Is it useful to have a home base on a planet? Or is it just better to keep your ship as home?

    Home bases help, as you can make a colony of npcs. the npcs will pay rent giving you pixels, weapons, food, and on extreme planets even nanowrap bandages.

    I'd store as much as you can on your ship. Anything valuable certainly.

    In theory anyone could find your colony and wreck it in short order. In reality I don't think anyone can find you unless you friend them or give them coords to your home system.

    The chances of being randomly found are "astronomical" but octa is right, store valuables on your ship (although to be honest, most things are easy to obtain now lol).
