Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Scanning easily the creatures I randomly found as I hunted down the resources I required was a small source of free money. Not a lot, but free money was free money, and every clipped credit was precious if I wanted to buy a bigger ship to harvest more resources. But now I have a Pearl and NipNip farm, and I don't need that pocket change anymore.

    Meanwhile I spent two hours this morning mining two gold nuggets. Got me a sweet rifle with loads of slots, and a million in the bank. Then I looked at the cost of the ship next to me, and wept bitter tears

    If you look closely the in bottom left hex, you can see one of my rabid ewoks.

    I picked up a crashed B-class ship with 25 mostly broken slots yesterday

    I spent the next half hour looking at every ship that landed, trying to find the sweet spot between "more than 18 slots" and "less than one million credits in part exchange"

    I think I might be here a while

    Permadeath Run #3: currently on a hostile world of tropical islands. Started out on a beautiful but extremely cold snow planet, with night lows down under -70C. It had no zinc. I clocked up 5 foot-travel milestones before I found enough to fix my ship - darting from cave to cave at first, eventually summiting and descending a great mountain and cutting back around it, crafting hazard shields from the copious platinum and iron. A looming planet and its two moons teased me during the long nights. It turns out all three were lifeless...

    I just got the first fetch quest from my scientist to learn a new blueprint. All I had to do was enter an abandoned building about five minutes away

    Turns out that when you build your base on the coast for the bracing air and sea views, five minutes away involves a lot of swimming, including two minutes vertically with no fuel in my scuba gear

    I almost drowned just to learn how to make batteries

    That's why if I'm going anywhere on my planet, even just five minutes, I'm taking my space ship.

    Wait, can space ships go underwater?

    Wait, can space ships go underwater?

    Nope. It's more along the lines of taking the ship to the nearest spit of land, then swimming as little as possible.

    Eventually crafting the hovercraft will probably help, I assume?

    The hovership does help. While it can't go underwater unless it's being forced down by a cave or something, you can drive it to right on top of the point of interest and swim down from there.

    That is, unless it's a temple guarded by a giant aggressive killer whale like creature like the one on my planet I've lovingly named a 'From Beneath You It Devours.'

    I'll see if I can find one in the wild. Luckily they are solitary and rather rare. Otherwise I'll upload a shot from my discovery menu.

    Wait, is this a thing? A temple guarded by some divine beast of myth!?

    No, I just have killer-whale-sharks in my oceans.

    As you can see, it's about the same size as the Nomad. Getting a closer picture would have required me to actually get in the water with it, which NO THANK YOU.
