Let me know if you guys need someone to sit at the base and quietly feed a generator.

@vinny I've got great news for you!

I haven't watched this yet so I don't know if you heard or mentioned it but Astroneer will be getting automation in an upcoming update, possibly next month.

The way to watch this is: watch both views parallel, synced up. The complete experience.

@brad@vinny I really appreciate this series. I tried it really briefly last year and didn't get it for some reason, but after this I've been trying it again and loving it.

Also for regular ol' digging turn off those drill mods to stop using up your power. :)

I just recently started on trying to make tunnels down to the center of Calidor and damn, what an annoyingly big planet.

I love this feature, I love the Brad and Vin combo, but man you guys are so aimless. You need to be prioritizing power generation and power storage or you’re just going to be constantly frustrated. Stranding yourself on Calidor so early in the game was also a uhmmmm really strange move. If you’re going to stay on Calidor you should really be producing Sulfur, if not try getting back to Sylva.

Also, are you guys aware that there is an event going on? The Salvage Initiative Event. If you complete it you get a ton of rewards!

This episode, like the others, is distractions galore. Good half an hour spent just smoothing out a tunnel that didn't even need smoothing. The research module build from the last episode still isn't done. There's five different entrances to the maze of a cave, so there's that.

But, watching this series, I started playing Astroneer and really got into it for a few days. Now I've got a drilling rover train full of storage silos that can burrow in to the core of planets, so thanks.

You know Brad, if you're getting lost a lot underground you can leave beacons just for yourself as breadcrumbs/signposts.

And thanks for continuing this series, love it!

Now that I've actually gone back and watched, boy, with the time yall spent aimlessly tunneling around to nowhere for nothing you could've put up some research chambers, got to that chem lab like an hour earlier and popped out a medium rover or two and drill/paver for some real shenanigans.

The rover is where the game starts really opening up. When you aren't just doing everything by hand and limited to backpacks and bases. It's almost impressive how long yall have gone without at least medium ones. Also how long you've gone without setting up a proper wind/solar farm with some batteries.

I mean I guess you gould thug it out with medium generators and trading all the soil you're wasting for organic/carbon. But much like the real world, the sooner you can ditch the fossil fuels for renewable energy the better off you'll be.

Just so you know, you can dig out the busted platforms at your forward base. They have a single cable so you can connect a few to the working platforms you brought down.

Their strategy of rebuilding their entire base on another planet is incredibly inefficient.
