    I have a system with 6 biomes, each being a different of the main resources - each one with a repository base on them from pre-next that contains old AMUs, plant garden and Gas collectors and am currently trying to retrofit them with the new industrial resources.

    The really awful problem is that, right now, all my beautiful bases (and freighter interior) have become Pop-up nightmares with lots of "Build limit reached" on them. From what I've read, apparently HG put a limit on how many pieces in one area you can do and limited the memory on purpose to achieve 8 players. This annoys me since I'm mostly single-player, and the PC currently has an option to max out that piece limit! >_<

    So, I'm kinda waiting to hear if that's going to be fixed on console anytime soon before I start completely tearing down my bases/freighter and rebuilding from scratch...

    ...on the plus side though, building with that new construction cam? Sweeeeeet! ^_^

    How do exocraft inventories work?

    Lets say I create an exocraft in one of my bases. I get the exocraft tab with lots of inventory space.

    Now lets say I build another exocraft in another place. What happens to that inventory tab? Is is shared for all exocrafts?

    Same way ships/freighters work. Each exocraft has an inventory. Every time you summon that exocraft it will have whatever you put in that inventory. Just like when you switch ships the inventory stays (they really need an easier way of accessing non-active ship inventories. I keep forgetting about my 48 slot hauler that is filled up)

    You can even delete the bay to get some mats back once you build it. It really is a clunky system. I wished they would have added them as part of freighters. Where you have it air dropped in and have to refuel/recharge it on your freighter rather then always building it. I rarely use them since I don't stay long on a planet and most base building/resource collection I do is easier with the ship.

    I rarely search out the things exocraft scanner is needed to find. But that is just how I play. So don't let my dislike detract you from building them. I probably should use the pilgrim to explore anyways.

    I dont really use the one I have, but I noticed even the first one you can build has rather large inventory. So I have been putting stuff in it. I'd put stuff in my freighter, but its pretty bad and has only small inventory. I'm expecting to change it at some point anyway so I dont want to keep huge amount of stuff in it. I read I will lose everything inside, if i switch it.

    But as far as exocrafts go, they are good extra inventory spaces and I have been thinking I need to get another.

    They can get randomly useful.

    I just had a mission that sent me to a water planet, to a specific location that was underwater. And the water was radioactive. The nearest island was like a 5-minute swim away. I debated making the run, then realized I A> had a ton of mats on me, and B> the Nomad exocraft can skim on water (didn't have the sulphides to make a Nautilon bay, and none were visible, and this was faster).

    Had I ever used the Nomad before? Nope, it's got a tiny inventory, and wasn't the first Exocraft. Was I glad I had it unlocked? Yuuup. Just build the bay (don't need a base to do that), run out, do my thing, run back, destroy the bay to get all the mats back, and fly off.

    It would be amazing if there was:

    1) A way to see the race / economy / conflict level of previously discovered systems in the teleporter
    2) A way to filter systems in the teleporter based on one of those items

    Really a PITA looking for a specific system and you have to first browse through all your discoveries (which don't have filtering / sorting either), then close that and find the system in the teleporter. Given the nature of the game, there needs to be more filtering of planets / systems.

    Would also love a search in your inventory and a way to sort. Also, please make the dialogue boxes faster - I know they're better than before, but they're still pretty awful, especially when you go to a new station and you want to just learn a bunch of new words.

    How do you find those buildings that have their doors closed? Manufacturing facilities or operations centre? Apparently they give blueprints and I really need those. I googled and cartographers should give maps. I got myself some and they always show same things... possibly even same location too. Then googled more. Apparently different star systems always give one type of map(?).

    I tried going trough all the ones I have visited. The teleporter list changes order every time, but I think i visited still majority of them. No correct type of maps.

    Is it simply that I need to keep visiting places?

    I have ever only once or twice randomly bumped into those buildings while exploring planets. :/

    You use the portable scanner thing and I believe its one of the options you can use nav data on.

  9. #3689
    It only accepts drop pod data for exosuit upgrades.

    I think while googling about this matter, there was a change in the recent patch that you cant anymore give navigation data to signal booster for them. Apparently you can find the manufacturing centres with them, but you need to be lucky. For me it has ever found only trading posts and other locations I dont need.

    Correct. The scanners on the exocrafts need to be used to find buildings now. Or you can collect navigation data from various sources and turn them in on space stations for planetary maps. You can also trade nanites (around 15-20) for a random location in the system. Be warned you can get "no location" unless they fixed it. And there is no bulk turn.

    Question: if i have 2 bases and build a portal in each, this means i can jump from one to another freely right?
    Yes it does. that portal gives you access to all your bases in fact.

    I bought all the upgrades to exocrafts, but it seems to not be able to locate the factories. Unless is some special extra upgrade you can buy somewhere, but not at least from the vehicle upgrade vendor at the spatial anomaly space station (or whatever its name is). It also can locate the same buildings again from huge distances away.
    The cartocraphers seem to only give one type on each space station unless my rng is weird. Havent found one that gives correct ones yet.

    As it happens. Best solution so far is the dumb bruteforce method. Find a planet with lots of buildings and fly until you find one. This worked surprisingly well on planet that felt like it had tons of buildings on it. Flew around like 20-30min and found 3-4 of the correct ones. I had tried that on other planets and it did not work out. Less buildings on those, I guess...

    1) Each cartographer only gives one type of map. You need to find a station that offers the map you want. If you're on PC, you should get the mod that has different icons for all the maps, because they all look the same in vanilla.

    2) You don't use the portable scanner to find the stuff from the planetary charts, you just hold "E" on them. They're an item to use, not a material.

    Would recommend using Nomad. It's easily the fastest one. Boosting into a jump on a hill sends you miles. Great for exploring.

    So yeah... its rng. I need to go warp around and check the space statio every time.

    As for point 2, I'm aware what the planetary charts are, but exocrafts DO have scanner that will find buildings and other such things. They can find supply depots, drop pods, abandoned buildings (you know the buildings that are covered in slime), ruins and alien structures.

    Holy shit.

    Has anyone had their freighter go absolutely crazy?

    I didnt notice anything as I went in to debrief some of my commanders, ect. Then when I clicked the command computer thing, I suddenly found myself inside the roof, clipping trough all the walls. I could not find a way out and I had to load a save. I had to do this 4 times until I managed to find a spot where I wasnt moved inside the walls.
    Afterwards I noticed the npc's inside had their feet inside the floors. While talking to them, camera clipped in such a way that I thought I had been moved inside wall again. It seemd like parts of the floor did not connect to other parts of the floor and you could see trough the floor.
    I also got stuck inside the freighter for a while since stairs were suffering from this same thing. Walking down the stairs made you move inside the roof/walls. I finally managed to jetpack trough.

    Anyone know what causes this? Is there easier way destuck yourself? What if I had a save inside the freighter causing me to not be able to load older save to unstuck myself? Ect.

    This problem seemed to be gone when I jumped to other system and tried calling the freighter there, but I had been stuck inside the roof once before, but with no other problems. So I think its not a thing that just happens rarely.

    Pretty cool!

    I'm still quite new at the game with only ~40 hours spent in game. I've gathered about 100 million units so far. Is this a decent amount? Or should I aim higher? How do you earn quicksilver, by the way? I've got a bunch but have no idea how I earned it. Is there also a way to scan for drop pods that you haven't visited yet? I think I nearly maxed out my inventory slots, but it's still a wee bit annoying to scan for a pod and be directed to one you already looted. And my last newbie question: what's the best way to go about finding an S class ship? Preferably a hauler?

    Thanks!

    Highest price I have seen on anything so far has been 200million. This was a A class freighter, I think.

    There are some coordinate lists on reddit and youtube also has videos of them. People have found the spots where you find extremely rare stuff. Then you can come to that exact spot and pick the same thing. This involves the "stargates" or whatever portals where you input coordinates, ect.
