The video below shows off crystal formations growing out from the ceiling. You use the beam cutter to break them down then use the atomizer to fully break them down and get resources from them.

The following video shows off how cargo inventory and mod inventory expansion will work. You will have spots to equip an item that adds spaces to your inventories. The number of slots given is randomized within a range for each rarity value. So, even if you find a blue expansion unit, you may still find another blue that is better, but the worst purple is as good as the very best blue.
