How to Install 30 Unique Ship Modules in Starfield

Getting this challenge completed is painful without pen and paper.

When leveling your skills in Starfield, there’s a lot more to it than simply getting XP, scoring that level up, and putting the point into that skill. Excluding the level 1 variant of that skill, every level afterward requires you to meet a prerequisite that’s exclusive to that skill. For Starship Design, how you pull it off can be a little confusing. Here’s how to install 30 unique ship modules in Starfield.

Unique ship modules in Starfield are just about what they sound like. Every time you install a ship module that you’ve never installed before, it puts one point toward the challenge. This includes every ship part type, between Habs, Engines, Structural, Grav drives, and more. Once you’ve placed them on the ship and confirmed them, you’re safe to sell them later. Just do this with 30 different unique ship modules, and you’re set.

If we may make a suggestion, you should use Structural ship modules to complete this challenge over other parts. These are the cheapest type of ship parts available, and there are a lot of them to place on a ship. Spamming these should get the challenge done quickly. The only unfortunate part is the inability to track which ship parts you’ve used in the past. You’ll have to keep track of this yourself.
