    It has been realized that there are storage limits on certain starfall items, specifically Forerunner parts.

    The quest asks for 5 Hull parts, 20 gas, and 10 sails. It's easy to make a bunch so you'll have them next time. The problem is that next time you will still be required to make them, and if you have a bunch stored up you will not be able to transfer the ones you make from your star menu to your storage to get credit for making them! There is no warning or notice except that instead of the quest line filling you will find the parts you made in the star menu, and when you try to move them it says you can't move them into storage. You will notice that the Mayors House or any other storage building does not have the forerunner parts counts listed. The only way to eliminate the problem is to go to the forerunner and make surplus parts into salable units and sell them. This will remove them from the hidden inventory so you can make more and continue the quest.

    I haven't done the math to know if making excess parts and selling them is worthwhile, for myself I just don't have the time or desire.

    My suggestion is that when a quest calls for you to make 5 hull parts, 20 gas, and 10 sails, you only make that number and use them so your inventory is clear for the next round.

    The exception to this is the Lube. As pointed out by Lady_Kizmiaz, the return on investment for the lube in the 4th quest is excellent, and the time to mine out the ore is significantly reduced, a win-win situation! You can Lube buff the 5 motes every 2 hours if you're online (maybe 5 times?) and haul in 4x shards per mote per cycle! I haven't heard of anyone running out of storage space for the lube.

    I hope this helps someone. Feel free to pass this on, and if there are corrections or updates please let me know!

    I have bought 2 boxes.

    B.C.S.P Discovery box - I opened it; it said I would receive 326,000 XP, I clicked 'OK' and I got 0 XP.

    A.C.S.P. Discovery box said I would get 3,006,000 XP and again when I clicked 'OK', I got 0 XP.

    Please note that Starfall is a quest chain that must be completed within 4 days. If you fail, your progress will be reset. If you are successful, you will receive another set of tasks in the loop.

    This is a permanent addition to the game, not a seasonal event.
    Where is the 4 day timer for this event?

    So I did questline 1, 2, 3 (failed because of storage bugs), 3 again, 4, then 3 again, and now 4 again....

    I've heard the same from other players. THERE IS NO QUEST LINE 5! IT'S ALL A FRAUD!

    Seriously, there is too much time, effort, pitfalls, bugs, and lack of return on investment to make Starfall anything more than Starfail.

    I have given up on it just as I gave up on colonies after being frustrated by UNFIXED bugs, and on achievement quests that don't pay out tributes because of bugs... and THEY NEVER GET RESOLVED. They wait 4 days then close the ticket, never to be looked at again. If you complain that nothing has been done every 3 days the ticket will stay open with the reply "Rest assured that BB is working on the problem" and when you quit nagging every 3 days or more the ticket gets closed as resolved. Insanity. For the money I've spent over the last few years I can't believe BB has that little respect for its players. If the core of the game wasn't so great I'd have quit long ago. I see players come and go every day, lasting only a few weeks, and I'm sure BB is wondering why... but I digress.

    Starfail has not lived up to anything except the expectations of poor execution and minimal support that long time players have seen in the past. I will continue to play Settlers, spend some time in ban camp for using the general chat channel, and ignore this segment of the game.

    Don't wait 4 days

    If you look at the main quest and scroll down, you will see a sub-quest to 'don't wait' for 4 days. At least I see one. Just like weekly.

    But I am afraid to spend my star shards and get 0 XP again, and I've reverted to Altered States after finishing Falling Star Mining (as reported by many other players) so I guess the star shards will just sit there for quite some time (2579/3000).

    Level 74 need to make the forerunner but there are zero starfall collectibles on the map and I've let a number of "collectible" sequences go by. So I'm basically unable to complete this quest. I don't know if the 5 hulls are actually collectibles are not. There is zero information in the quest itself about where to get them so I can only assume the hulls, along with the sail and gas are supposed to be somewhere on my island.

    You make them in your Provision House.

    I got 5 boxes of spire fragments. The first one I opened gave me 100 fragments. The second one just resulted in a spinning hour glass and didn't open. I clicked on the other three and they just disappeared without opening. I confirmed that fragments were not put anywhere in my inventory nor the star menu. I refreshed and reloaded the game and confirmed the spire fragment boxes just disappeared without crediting the fragments anywhere.

    So, early on I had made too many SCRAPPERs, and they can't be used based on how the quests work. Is there or will there be a way to get rid of these?

    Also, I did the math on the Discoveries boxes you can buy with star shards. The highest box is your best bet for XP:
    Discoveries Crystals Cost Level 72 xp Cost Ratio xp/cost

    Basic 850 329000 387.0588235
    Advanced 1450 3956000 2728.275862
    Intricate 2450 12460000 5085.714286
    Master 4150 25040000 6033.73494
