So I've been just dicking around for what's probably way too long and now there's zero fish around the escape pod. Is it possible to repopulate or am I just screwed?

Game's really good, only sad part for me is that it's probably never getting multiplayer. It's exactly the kind of game me and my friends like to play together.

You can make a giant aquarium in your base, catch some fish, put em in the aquarium. Two of the same fish will populate the whole aquarium. Then if you wanted, you could release all but 2 of them into the wild and repeat.

I ended up making an aquarium of reginalds and one of airsacks so I effectively have an infinite supply of food and water now.


e: I also basically have 3 billion titanium and probably enough everything except lithium to build a cyclops, but I still haven't found a goddamn seaglide blueprint.

You need to open the fabricator with some magnetite in hand and compass will show up under equipment. IIRC it needs 1 magnetite 1 computer chip.

I think I've pretty much built what there is to build in this game... except find a sea glider fragment. Are these supposed to be so rare? Wiki says they're found in kelp forests, but I've scanned >100 kelp forest fragments now, none were sea glider ones.

Yes, it's not in fab, and it's not under blueprints. I don't even have 1 scanned, much less 3 or whatever is needed

Maybe I just started the game while new game was bugged.

Also, when you say say "built all there is to build" do you have a seamoth/item updrage consoles working? I just got to that point after thinking I was done and hot drat it feels like a whole new world is open to me!

Yep, the recharging fins and double capacity oxygen tanks are really nice. And on seamoth, the sonar and cargo upgrades are really nice. I run with 2x cargo, a sonar and a depth upgrade unless I want to go really deep (lava caves are really big)

Good info on the fragments btw, I was thinking there was a pattern to it, because I'd often find a lot of fragment a or b near each other, rather than them being scattered completely randomly, but I never narrowed it down more than "search in biome". I'm starting a new game today and I'll see what I can find.

Also, on cyclops, I actually dislike it right now. It's a slower (much bigger, sure) moth, that can't get power from a solar or thermal sea base, and while making powercells isn't a big deal, it is a fair amount of busywork IMHO.

Yeah I completely stumbled upon them while making GBS threads my pants running away from the electro things. Then I got lost in them and came out with 10% seamoth energy left because I spammed sonar so much to get an idea where I was. Good times.

It's in fact quite easy to get self-sufficient. You can make huge indoor aquariums in bases and put 2+ of the same fish in it and they'll start reproducing fairly quickly, giving you an infinite source of food.

Then you also build a water filtering thing, giving you infinite water for drinking, and salt, which you can use to cure food so it doesn't spoil on longer trips.

If you stack a fish tank to 2 high, plant kelp in it, infiite free kelp and that rubber pods thing.

Stalkers will break their teeth on the Seamoth, without damaging it. Bother some for a bit and you should be able to get some teeth.

This is how I used to get teeth in the past, but I've been playing a bit yesterday, was doing this for 20 minutes with 0 teeth drops, and getting a grand total of 2 teeth since I started playing the save.

After that I just spawned them in with console commands. I hope this gets fixed.

Is there a light switch for bases yet? I love that I can turn off the lights in the cyclops, makes subbing about much more atmospheric.

Hauling all my storage will be a pain in the dick though.

put a ton of lockers around cyclops walls. The thing can carry a shitload of crap if you just cram wall lockers in as tightly as possible, and still stays very spaceous.

Then, park it next to your base storage and get cranking, and never unload it. Do build a base in a nicer locale, not because you need it, but because you can

Also, powercell charger on the cyclops is pretty hilarious. It charges a nearly empty powercell with like 10 power drained, if that. Talk about perpetual electricity.

No, you probably have Cyclops unlocked. The blueprints screen gets broken often, I scanned all 9 parts required, my cyclops is still shown as 2/3, but it's also an unlocked blueprint I can make.

I wish they'd swap gold and silver. I have so much gold that I have barely any use for but I always need silver.

They should just make them interchangable, don't gold and silver have very similar electrical properties?

Alternatively, gold plating substitute for titanium for the subs/bases. Lower speed/HP, but a large increase to BLING

An optimization pass just happened. That's why your laptop is overheating, the game is actually rendering at decent frame rates now

Note: you can build solar panels underwater and they seem to work fine.

I build my first base close to surface, and put a foundation above water, then put panels on that. This hugely increases their efficiency. They also get progressively less efficient as you go deeper, and after some 200m they'll take like half an hour to charge the 25 power they can hold.

I can't break ~45FPS with a 1070 on experimental. Is that normal? 1080p

I want to say it should be higher, but I honestly don't know how much I'm getting. (I'm on a 980Ti so pretty much same thing) I'll check later.

Also, a good way to make a "trash bin" is to create a locker, fill it with poo poo, then deconstruct it. (ask me why I know this, I totally did not accidentally deconstruct a cyclops efficiency module once while moving things around in my first game ).

You can easily put a flower bed thing into your cyclops and plant 4 of those trees in it and never worry about food ever.

It got cancelled in favour of being funded by subsim. It's still the same game, but it'll be a type 7 uboat instead of a fantasy uboat. Dunno yet if that's good or bad, but there's a shitload of documentation and pictures of type 7s around so it'll probably look a bit better than their old demo did at least

My last game I had 8 panels and 2 filtration things in my shallows base and it was enough surplus to also run some pretty heavy fabricating. I think I managed to deplete it once after docking the seamoth with low power and also doing a lot of fab.

That said, seamoth now takes a lot more power to charge, so that's a new consideration.

I loved the most recent guy explaining that a complex configuration menu that allows us "cheatrts" to use traditional craft times if we want is obviously the superior option.

He's right though. Space engineers works like that. When you hit new game, you get a shitload of settings including but not limited to: assembler/refinery crafting speed and efficiency

You can be a a masochistic retard like me and create gigantic ships and bases with a hundred refineries, and empty in an entire planet worth of ore, or you just set everything to 10x one refinery and assembler.
