Moving structures in your base in Lightyear Frontier is not available as a direct mechanic like in other games, but there is an alternate way to move your structures around that works just as well.

It’s called “recycling” and involves completely destroying your building, picking up the materials you used to erect it in the first place, and constructing the building elsewhere. It’s a refund option that returns 100% of the resources invested in a construction.

How to Refund Structures in Your Base in Lightyear Frontier

When you press “B” to enter the build mode, you will see the “H” – Recycle hotkey on your screen below the build wheel. Press “H” and you can start recycling your structures. Once you select a structure, left-click on it, and it will be instantly destroyed, and you can pick up your items.

After you pick up your items, you can leave the recycling mode by pressing the right-click button on your mouse or “B.” Now, you can freely build your structure again at a more suitable location for your current needs. Or you don’t have to; you can use the resources for something else. It’s common in these games that players temporarily build multiple copies of, let’s say, a furnace to speed up their crafting when they are rushing to obtain certain items.
