Starfield: New Atlantis [Districts, Vendors, & Housing]
Players can explore galaxies and visit many different cities on many planets in Starfield. However, no two worlds are alike; some towns and planets may be better than others. New Atlantis is one of the first Cities in Starfield that players visit. Therefore, this guide will tell you everything about the City of New Atlantis in Starfield.
Table of Contents
New Atlantis is one of the most crucial cities in Starfield.
This City is on the planet Jemison, inside the Alpha Centauri System.
Moreover, this is one of the first significant planets you will encounter in your campaign.
The City is full of quests and vendors for players to explore.
New Atlantis is also divided into five districts accessible through the NAT system.
One of the districts, The Well, is located beneath the central City of New Atlantis.
New Atlantis is the capital city of the United Colonies and also home to the Constellation. Moreover, this sprawling City is on the Planet Jemison, in the Alpha Centauri System. This is a significant city in Starfield, and as a result, it is full of many vendors and quests for players to start.
How To Visit New Atlantis
New Atlantis will be an impossible city to miss for every Starfield player. The campaign opens up on a mining planet, where the player will meet Constellation member Barrett after an incident. Therefore, once players meet Barrett, after a few dialogues, Barrett will ask you to get on his Ship, and you will be off to New Atlantis.
This is one of the first cities players will come across, and they spend a significant chunk of their early campaign on this planet. Moreover, there is no way to avoid getting into this City as the movement requires you to land here. The City is on the earth Jemison, inside the Alpha Centauri System.
The City of New Atlantis is divided into five different sections. All five districts serve other purposes and have various quests and vendors. Therefore, knowing what each area offers is best to avoid missing out on anything important.
The Spaceport is one of the first districts you will encounter once you land in New Atlantis. This is where you will land your newly acquired spaceship. Moreover, every time you want to take off from this planet, this is where you can always find your Ship parked. The Spaceport district is vast and contains many shops and vendors.
Players will also be scanned before they enter the City. Therefore, it is recommended not to have any contraband when you first enter the City.
Ship Technician & Trade Authority Kiosk
The Ship Technician is one of the first characters you will encounter once you land here. Moreover, the ship technician will introduce you to Starfield’s ship-buying and building mechanics. You can also get your Ship repaired here for 1000 Credits. However, if you are looking to buy a new ship or need to get some upgrades done, then this is the person you want to see.
You can find the Technician right next to the Trade Authority Kiosk. This yellow stand is a significant place that most people will visit. Here, you can sell all the loot you have brought with you. However, the Kiosk will have a limited amount of credits. Players can exhaust most of these credits on every trip to this planet.
You can also access the Ship’s cargo directly from this Kiosk, allowing you to sell loot without carrying extra items.
Spaceport Storage Lockup
The Spaceport Storage Lockup is located behind the landing dock. All of the confiscated contraband is kept here. Therefore, you may need to learn advanced lock-picking skills to break in here. However, you must also be careful, as guards patrol this area frequently.
The Security Checkpoint can be found right in front of the landing dock ramp. You will spot this building right in the middle of the Spaceport. Moreover, players can find information about bounties here. You can find out if you have a bounty or need to collect additional compensation.
UC Security Office
The UC Security Office is also in the Spaceport district, opposite the Shops. Like most buildings within the game, players can find NPCs within the building. You can find Sergeant Yumi inside the building, and talking to her can start Keeping the Peace, a side quest.
Moreover, players can find a Va’Ruun Zealot being held inside the jail scenes. He will serve a bigger purpose in the later part of the campaign.
This is a large building that can be easily spotted in the shop area of the Spaceport. The Viewport is mainly a hangout spot for different NPCs players can hire for their crew. However, you must pay a few thousand credits to buy their services. You can also find the owner of the lounge, Nyssa Marcano, here. She will sell you a few aid items and offer a quest.
The Jemison Mercantile is one store for all things here in Spaceport. If you have already fully exhausted the Trade Kiosk and still have a few more things you are trying to sell, this is the place to visit. Moreover, the players can also buy Ammo, weapons, and other items from this shop.
You can also find Ace Pistol here, a unique weapon players can acquire early on. However, if you are looking for a quest, you should talk to the NPC, Samson Cabrail. He will set you off on The Art Dealer quest.
TerraBrew Coffee is another NPC hotspot here in the Spaceport district. This shop functions as a primary beverage store, where players can buy the latest concoctions the game has to offer. Moreover, these drinks will help players regenerate their health and give out additional buffs quickly.
You can also talk to Guillamo Degarmo here to start your Gym Jealousy quest.
New Atlantis Transit
The New Atlantis Transit is the train system in Starfield that will take you to the other districts in the City. It would be best if you boarded this train to travel to the Constellation Headquarters as part of your campaign. This is a quick way to travel between various parts of New Atlantis. The adoring fan will find you here if you have the Hero Worshipped trait.
The MAST District is the heart of the New Atlantis City. This is a busy part of the City with many embassies and religious buildings. Moreover, the District is full of many trees, which adds to the City’s overall aesthetic. The UC Vanguard building is a significant landmark in this area.
Moreover, the name amalgamates Military, Administration, Science, and Triumvirate. You can also meet the NPC, Kelton Fush, outside the NAT station. Talking to him can trigger A Tree Grows In New Atlantis side quest.
The Lodge is a significant building located in New Atlantis in Starfield. This building is home to the Constellation, and the main quest line will keep bringing you back to this building. Moreover, inside players can find Constellation members you can ask to be part of your crew. You can also find the Artifact Collection here, which the player will slowly add to during their campaign.
Moreover, I would recommend scouring every nook and cranny of this place. You will end up with some handy items.
The MAST Building is the central landmark of this District. The UC headquarters is where you can also find the UC Vanguard. Players will most likely come across this building while following one of the first significant quests of the game. Moreover, you will also be able to meet a Vanguard recruiting officer here, who will try to get you to join the Vanguard.
I would recommend joining the Vanguard as this allows you to get citizenship of the City, as well as access to critical locations within the building. Therefore, you must complete the Supra EtUltra quest to become a member of the Vanguard.
The Aphelion Realty will allow players to buy property in the capital city. However, you must have the City’s citizenship and 30,000 credits to your name. Your House will be in the Well district of the New Atlantis City. Therefore, head inside this Realty to buy a house and talk to Zora Sangweni.
This Realty is opposite the MAST building and next to the Armistice Archives.
The Va’Ruun Embassy can be found on the outskirts of the MAST district. However, this building is abandoned and serves no purpose for most of the campaign. This is due to the ongoing conflict with the Snake Worshipping people of Va’Ruun. Players will visit this place as part of their UC Vanguard quest lines.
Freestar Collective Embassy
The Freestar Collective Embassy is another giant structure located in the MAST district. Similar to the Va’Ruun Embassy, this building serves no greater purpose. However, you will visit this place as part of the UC Vanguard questlines and can meet the Freestar Collective Ambassador.
The Armistice Archives is a museum located opposite the MAST building. This building does not serve much purpose other than highlighting the complex history of Freestar Collective and the United Colonies. Therefore, this building serves as a reminder of the conflict and resolve between the two groups.
The Sanctum Universum is one of the district religions in Starfield. This building serves as the embassy for this religion. Moreover, players can find Keeper Aquilius here, and talking to him will set you off on the An Invitation quest. They will also give you information about their religion and try to get you to join them.
The Commercial District is a significant part of New Atlantis in Starfield. This part of the City is full of Shops and many exciting places to explore. The NAT will bring you directly to this District, or players can travel to the left of the MAST district to find this area.
The Valberg building is located opposite the SSNN building. This building is empty and does not offer much to the player. However, an elevator inside will take you to the Argos Extractor offices. The Argos Extractors is a mining company and was the company that hired the player as the miner.
Therefore, you can report the pirate attack to them. Unfortunately, that would not result in any reward or compensation.
The Whetstone is a fancy restaurant located right next to the Valberg building. As this a restaurant, players can buy several consumables items here. Although these food items are expensive, they have a greater healing potency and can provide temporary bonus buffs.
Settled Systems News Networks
The Settled Systems News Networks, or the SSNN building, is a huge building located in the Commercial District. This place does not have much in terms of trade, but players can find some exciting quest lines here. Therefore, you can talk to Nadia Muffaz here to begin the Light in the Darkness quest.
The Enhance is the genetics modification facility in the Commercial district of New Atlantis in Starfield. This shop is part of a large franchise spread throughout the galaxy. Therefore, players can get to this shop and update their look. You can modify everything from your face and body to even your pronouns.
A player must pay a small fee of 500 credits to modify their appearance.
The Outland is located right next to the Enhance! Building. This is your ammo and weapons shop, where players can buy and sell weapons. Before your next major quest, visit this shop to find some decent and powerful weapons. Moreover, I recommend loading Ammo from here before you head out.
The GalBank serves as the in-universe Bank for Starfield. Many franchises to this Bank are spread throughout, although players can find one right at the edge of the commercial District. Therefore, head inside and talk to Landry Hoillifield, who will offer you a job as a debt collector. This will lead you to the Due in Full quest.
Moreover, the Bank also has a few ATMs outside, and players can steal credits from these if they have Advanced lock-picking skills.
UC Distribution Center
The UC Distribution Center is a beneficial building in the commercial center. Players can trade cargo here, which means you can buy and sell directly to the United Colonies. Moreover, this place contains some compelling and rare weapons players can buy. Therefore, I would recommend that you should visit this place when you get to New Atlantis.
The Residential District is another crucial section of the New Atlantis in Starfield. This District is everything you would need to go about your daily life. You can find restaurants, medical, and gun stores in this area. Although, as the name suggests, this place is also home to a few housing complexes.
The Pioneer Tower is an apartment complex with a coffee shop on the ground floor. This place is useless unless you have the parent’s trait in the game. Players with the trait activated can visit their parents in this building. Moreover, you can also interact with the NPC, Marieff Sutherland, to start the Terror Brew quest.
The Eit Clothiers is your clothing store in New Atlantis’s Residential District. Players have plenty of clothing choices available here. Moreover, some of these clothes can also provide a permanent buff to the player. However, these clothes will set you back a few hundred credits.
This is a futuristic restaurant franchise spread throughout the galaxy. Players can visit Chunks to buy cube-shaped food that is easy to carry, give out health regeneration, and a temporary buff. The Chunks is located right next to the Pioneer Tower.
Reliant Medical is your trusted medical store located in the Residential District. You can walk up here and get some very resourceful medical supplies. Therefore, these items can provide health aid and even cure you from poison and toxins.
The Orion Tower is another residential building in this area. This place is mostly useless, not allowing players to access elevators or stairs. However, players will encounter this building during a side quest, Out On a Limb.
The CJ’s is a futuristic store in the Residential District of New Atlantis. Players can interact with Curtis Julien inside and buy a few consumable items. These food items can be handy if you need health or temporary buffs.
The Centaurian Arsenal is a district weapons store in New Atlantis. Although a little pricey, this City offers some potent weapons. Moreover, players can load up on Ammo before heading out on their next quest. There is also a glitch here that can be exploited to steal weapons. However, I recommend against stealing as there is a good chance you will end up in jail.
This District is a stark contrast between the wealth and class of the City that is right above it. The Well is the District of New Atlantis in Starfield, right under the central town. This District is home to many less fortunate people who can not afford the luxuries of the City above them. However, this City does provide a new place for people to explore and unfold its secrets.
You can access this District through the basement of the Lodge. Moreover, an elevator next to the TerraBrew located in Spaceport will take you down to the Well.
UC Security Office
The UC Security Office serves as the outpost for UC in The Well. Residents of The Well are mostly unwelcome here due to the political nature of the City. Moreover, this building is useless unless players break into it and get their hands on some rare loot.
You can buy a house for relatively cheap right in the busy neighborhood of the Well. This property can be purchased for 30,000 Credits and is above Jake’s. Therefore, you can rest and store some of your valuable loot in this place. However, before buying the property, get your hands on the citizenship of New Atlantis.
The Trade Authority may be one of the most important buildings in The Well district. Players can always come here to sell cargo and earn a few credits. Moreover, players can also buy a few essential items from this place. Trade Authority will believe anything the players will bring, so you would not need to worry about contraband.
The UC Surplus is next to Kay’s House in The Well district of New Atlantis in Starfield. Players can visit this store and get their hands on some practical gear. Moreover, you can also buy a few weapons from the owner. This place also offers The Boot quest, which can be triggered if you inquire the owner about a customer returning his boots.
The Jake’s is the only bar in The Well district of New Atlantis. You can buy various beverages here that will provide you with Health Regeneration and some temporary buff. Moreover, you can also find a few NPCs here that you can hire to be part of your crew.
Apex Electronics can be found opposite Kay’s House in The Well district. You can talk to the owner and get your hands on some valuable resources. Most items found here are mainly decorative or help you craft other resources. However, you might consider visiting this place for the A Shipment for Salians quest.
House Of The Enlightened
The House of the Enlightened is the newest religion in Starfield, shared amongst the people of The Well. Players spot this building right opposite the UC Security Office. Moreover, inside the building, you can talk to Andy Singh and Brodie Jiang. You can also find The Kindness of Strangers quest in this building.
The Med Bay serves as the medical store of this hidden District. Players can interact with Talia O’Shea and get their hands on a few medical supplies. However, it is essential to note that Med Bay does not have as many resources as the medical store in the City above.
Moreover, you can also talk to Louisa Reyez just outside Med Bay and start Tapping the Grind quest.
This is a humble, small diner run by Kay and Theressa. You can visit this friendly restaurant to get City’s hands on some handy supplies. Therefore, most food bought from here will help you regenerate your health, and players can also get a temporary buff. Kay’s House can be found near Med Bay and through the exit doors.
New Atlantis is one of the first cities players will encounter in Starfield. This bustling City has many activities and secrets for players to uncover. Moreover, New Atlantis is the capital of the United Colonies. This City is divided into five districts, each containing unique interactions and activities.
These districts contain some significant locations for the players’s campaign. You can buy Ammo, weapons, medical supplies, and new clothes from these vendors. Moreover, the Constellation’s headquarters is also located in New Atlantis. Therefore, this is an important city that players will come across as part of their primary campaign.
