    It generally starts happening whenever I find a heavily populated settlement or visit the more populated side of the outpost.

    There was a patch note that said the screen will purposely flicker if you use bad puns to name yourself.

    Is there a fast way to farm Upgrade Modules?

    I get crew faster than Upgrade Modules.

    Unless something changed in 1.0.3, Sticks of RAM are drop-only. Robots near the gnome-housing biomes are your best bet, but they are rare.

    Hey, using lava to kill pigs and cows is just cutting out the middleman. Now have a burger and some ribs...slightly charred.

    How the hell do I quick store items? Do I really have to drag and drop? And is it naturally to be getting murderated by enemies on this first planet? Died like 10 times doing corpse runs.

    Shift-click to move a stack to/from a container, shift-right click to pick up half a stack. The game's tutorial is kind of... nonexistant. It feels like it assumes you've played a lot of these types of games before, and if someone hasn't then it's probably pretty daunting.

    Dropping items on death and so needing to do corpse runs for survival difficulty is exactly why I started over on casual. That and being able to beam to the ship from anywhere now. I don't have the patience for that kind of busy work.

    So. . .navigating back to a corpse after digging for hours with no map system. Not. . .fun? Especially when it doesn't beam you down anywhere near where you were?

    I guess that's what I should have done. I thought I needed to mine where the stupid quest was. Now I can't actually find my shit and I'm really soured on the game. The normal difficulty, is just obnoxious it seems in the beginning. Like I had enough Iron to build an anvil. . .but dropped it all. Ugh. And I had like 100 silver and BARELY any iron? What?

    I'll pick it up again (because I bought it and no take backs), but god damn. At least tell me how to repair the fucking pickaxe so mining isn't a fucking chore.

    Pickaxes are single use items. Once its durability runs out, it's done. But you'll find more eventually. And you'll be able to upgrade the matter manipulator to be better anyway.

    You can mine anywhere really, I just mine near the spawn for conveniences sake. I try to leave a clear trail of torches on the walls so I know the way back.

    My trick for deep mining is to dig until I'm tired of digging, then find one of those unstable portals to a challenge dimension and die inside it. Bam, back home, no items dropped.

    It was that somehow, from within the derelict-horror, they had learned a way to see inside an ugly, broken thing... And take away its pain.

    I found one on a starter world. It was built on bones and I accidentally collapsed it. Silver lining, I was on my hardcore Nova Pirate and probably saved myself a wipe.

    He later slipped into a lava pit from which he couldn't escape on his way back from getting his core fragments. Hardcore is an insane proposition.

    So my computer totally fucked itself up while I was playing Starbound.

    My save got corrupted.

    My backup was like 10-15 hours of progress old.

    So I started a new character and cheated my way back to most of my old inventory.

    I still have to do the first few quests which kind of sucks.

    you can spawn items for the quests that want items [except for the erchmine, sorry. it does not want an item even though it says that it does], and for missions you can make yourself invincible and the terrain destructible

    but I don't think there is actually a command specifically for marking a quest complete, so you can speed up the rigamarole but not avoid it entirely

  • DarmakDarmak RAGE vympyvvhyc vyctyvyRegistered User regular
    Maybe that's what I was thinking of. Either way, yeah you can admin the shit out of things to speed the process along.

    Yea, this isn't the game for me. Restarted on a new planet that was much more giving in the initial stages. Then get to the Mining Facility and. . .restart the whole thing if you die. Yea. I'm out. I can take losing shit on death and being meticulous with your navigation, but having to redo a slog of a level because you get stuck between enemies that do massive damage and can hit you through planes that you can't shoot through? I'm done. Unfortunately I'm sure I'm past the "tryout" phase for STEAM so I'm stuck with this license.

    Meh.

    Maybe turn on admin mode for the duration of that mission? Once you've beaten that you can just ignore the rest of the missions if you don't wanna do them.

    So, on your basic crafting menu, you can make a flag using ... copper bars and some cloth, I think?

    Anyway, you can drop that wherever you want and then us'E' it to set a teleport beacon. You can then teleport to that location from your ship, making trips back-and-forth between your home base (put a flag there, too) and the mine very quick.

    No, I'm pretty sure he's talking about the mine you delve into for Core Fragments on the very first planet.

  • Mr RayMr Ray Sarcasm sphereRegistered User regular
    He's talking about having to restart the entire thing if you fail and enemies that do massive damage. He's pretty obviously talking about the Erchius mine. And yes, the enemies there will do massive damage if you don't at least have Iron armor.

    Does that affect achievements? If that's an option I'll look into it. I just got insanely frustrated after finding a shortcut and thinking the game might checkpoint me and then finding, nope. . . do it all over.

    Game might still not be for me. Navigating all the hotkeys is a nightmare and I'm often laying down dirt when I want to switch to bow and arrow. Or overshooting jumps and falling to my death.

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't effect achievements. To activate it, just type /admin into chat, and enter it again to deactivate it.
    Though, if you're having trouble with falling to your death, you can get a double jump tech from a quest available when you first enter the outpost.
    What sort of gear did you have when you tried the mine, anyway?

    Oh, and I should also mention, there actually is a checkpoint in the mission, a bit before the boss.

    Also, survival sounds too frustrating for you (and it is for me too!) so you might look into casual mode. That's what I did and it's made the game much, much less frustrating. I might turn hunger on for casual, but that item drop on death is something I don't have the time for.

    edit: however, I should mention that would require you starting a brand new character and you may not want to do that. But I bit the bullet and haven't looked back so I'd suggest looking into it

    There's gotta be a way to edit the character file to change the difficulty, right?
    Failing that, I believe I saw a mod while browsing the workshop that disables item drop in survival.

    Only bothers me when I get pulled away to address toddler problems and I return to find myself standing in my ship with all my items on the deck and my wallet somewhat lighter.

    But I have invested heavily in agriculture; so a backpack full of solid meals only takes a few minutes to prep.
