GrimHEX (acronym of Green Imperial Housing Exchange), formerly known as 'Green Imperial', is a base hidden deep in the Yela asteroid belt. The station's nickname is an amalgam, i.e HEX could stand for his honeycombed (hexagonal) structure. It's also an acronym of Housing Exchange.

Originally built to house workers, it has now fallen under the control of criminals. It was added in during the Star Citizen Alpha 2.5.0 patch and until 3.0 GrimHEX was used as the default Outlaw spawn location.[1] After the release of 3.0 anyone that log out in the station will spawn of it. GrimHex doesn't appear on the Starmap.[2]


Like all Housing Exchanges, GrimHEX is built into a hollowed asteroid soon after the system's discovery. It was constructed for mining purposes, but was later abandoned and is now poorly maintained. It's former clientele changed and so did the station. The Housing Exchange closed officially in 2938 but is still operated by its new inhabitants. Outlaws, criminals, pirates and lowlifes.

Half of the station's corridors are now unpressurized and lack gravity. The station is currently controlled by outlaws, and it is believed to be used as a base of operations by pirates, although the inhabitants of GrimHEX deny this. In addition to standard landing pads, the asteroid station also contains hangars. Due to its vertical nature, elevators are used to traverse the base. It has a racing course, as well.[3]

In Alpha 2.5.0, GrimHEX was introduced as a spawn point for outlaws. Outlaws could Quantum Travel to GrimHEX, but couldn't get to Port Olisar. While GrimHEX was not available as a QT location for non-outlaws, they could still reach GrimHEX in other ways. After 3.0 anyone can QT to GrimHEX. GrimHEX orbits Yela. Anyone that logs out in the station will spawn in its habitation area, GrimHEX sells many goodies with good prices as minerals that can be sold at Port Olisar.
