POIs, Icons and Discovered states[edit]

Most icons on Starfield maps are Points Of Interest (POI). Places where player can do some activity.

POIs can have "Undiscovered" status - unvisited, "Discovered" status - visited, or one of states between (semi-discovered).

Undiscovered POIs have dark icons SF-mapicon-Unvisited Starstation.svg Undiscovered unknown Starstation

Discovered POIs change to light icons SF-mapicon-Starstation.svg Discovered visited Starstation


For different kinds of POIs the process of discovering is different, and can have several stages.

Example of base on planet's surface[edit]

  • Unvisited unknown surface POI.svg
  • First shows up on player's radar like this, titled "Unknown".
  • SF-mapicon-Unvisited Industrial.svg
  • When scanned from distance it turns to this icon (Undiscovered Industrial base type of Structure), and title changes to "Structure".
  • SF-mapicon-Unvisited Industrial.svg
  • When you walk to the very edge of the base, game pops up a big discovery message telling you full name of the place, eg. "Abandoned relay station".
    Icon stays dark - Undiscovered.
  • SF-mapicon-Industrial.svg
  • Only when you actually run around the base, get inside etc. the icon turns to this discovered light version.


    Landmarks Unvisited Landmark.svg and Planet Trait POIs have similar multi-stage discovery process.

    Most POIs in space turn Discovered when you simply travel to them or to orbit of their planet.
