The Universim – Space Boxes Guide

Deciphering the Space Boxes and hopefully finding out what awaits for you inside before you open it.

Where to Find

The boxes are not immediately obvious at first glance, you gotta look around a bit. But what you are looking for are not actually boxes, but meteorites! They are grey and embedded in the earth.

When you find one, click on it a few times to crack it open, then use the telekinesis power to bring it over to your civilization. There’s a handy feature where you press “F” while holding it and it will bring you right to the center!

When I started up one game, I found 3 already spawned in around the world; in another game, 5. Seems randomization plays a role here. You will find more as the game continues via UFOs and Meteorites (Disaster).

Learning About Boxes

Looking at your new boxes, you’ll see three rows of question marks and the options to open or scrap them. While the boxes are sitting in the center of your civilization, your nuggets will research them in their free time. This will slowly turn those question marks into letters and give you one clue about the box, until all three are deciphered. Then it is up to you to open the box or not.

I don’t recommend opening them before this, as you would be taking a gamble. These boxes can contain goodies but also harmful effects. Off the top of my head I have obtained a nugget with exotic pink skin (that was inheritable by their descendants!) and also a straight up explosion. Open at your own risk.
