The vessel creation process begins with EM Shards.

First, players must collect the respective EM shards of their desired vessel. There are different variations of these Shards, one for each of the vessel Sub-races. For instance, to create a Canis INU, players need Canis INU shards.
Shards from Modified Sub-races have lower acquisition rates, with rare sub-races being more difficult to obtain. For example, there are fewer probabilities of acquiring a Cyborg INU shard as compared to a BioZ INU shard, and even fewer probabilities of acquiring a Cosmic INU.
After collecting enough EM Shards, these can be converted into one EM Core.

EM Cores can be used to create new vessels. The number of Cores required may depend on the Sub-race of the desired vessel.

Note: The figures above are only examples and do not represent the actual number of shards or cores required to create cores and vessels, respectively.
When creating a new Sipher vessel, their Augmentations are randomly generated from a pre-existing augmentation pool. Their base stats are also randomly generated from minimum and maximum stat ranges. Both the augmentation pool and stat ranges are determined by the vessel’s race and sub-race. There are also general augmentation pools that can be applied to any vessel, regardless of their race or sub-race.
Each newly created vessel is also equipped with a default equipment loadout depending on the vessel’s race and sub-race.
📌 Players need to acquire multiple vessels to find stat & augmentation combinations to progress in the game. Unwanted vessels can be used as awakening material to upgrade and improve existing ones of the same Race and Sub-race.
For instance, if a player currently has one Canis INU with poor stats and augmentations, they can attempt to get another one with better stats & augmentations. If they were to acquire a second Canis INU with undesirable results, they can use it as awakening material to improve their original Canis INU.
