I'M LOVING IT!
Eat Fresh .
Day one: Okay i have just joined a server and I'm spawning in a planetary Lander, its kitted out with a refinery, assembler even a MedBay, to me this was just the starting ship i needed. After flying around for about 45mins I had started to run out of fuel, so i needed to land to attempt to find fuel. After digging for about 30mins i found some uranium about 200m underground in that time the ship lost all power I could not refine my ore i just found. I died shortly after meaning i had to start from the beginning again, I spawned in a new ship then a server message pops up "restart in 10mins" so i knew i had to land ready for the restart.
I had decided to jump off for the night and continue the next day. Day Two: I had got home to find that once again i had to start from the beginning just before finding out that on restarts or if a player logs-off the spawn ships de-spawn, so here i was flying my planetary Lander landing every few mins looking for resources I had found some uranium and iron meaning i could start making a small base and had power to do so. I found a nice ice lake to call home. I build a small storage crate and stripped down my planetary Lander for parts. I had some materials to build a small base with the parts i took from the lander I had a MedBay, Power that's all i needed at this stage. Day Three: I finished my starting base kitted with a refinery & assembler. I knew i had to go farm if I wanted to ever make it to space I had no ship so that was my main target, I had built a small mining ship. I farmed ore for about 3 hours I had collected materials to build, I was set for life. Day Seven: By this stage I had built more ships but still no closer to space, my new target was getting to orbit.
I failed getting to orbit many times, so i had spent a few days farming, I had my land base I built base defense landing pads it was the life to live for then one night
I was looking up into the night sky with my camera zooming in and out then I saw.... A small station falling into orbit it was on fire going around 100m/s I crashed about 5kms from my base. So i went for a small flight and found the wreck at first sight I did not know what i was looking at. There was a big hole and only a few blocks I grind them down and under them blocks was some platinum it was a gift from above I now had the one resource that can only be found in space. Day Ten: I did not know what to do with this platinum i had found, so I traded it to a friendly local for a small rocket that he quotes
"This bad boy will get you to space and beyond"
I made that deal I now had a space ready ship, I flew both my ships back to base. I was running around taking everything i wanted
as i know I would not come back to land. Day 12: Yea Boi, I'm now going to space. I'm a space man now!.
I jumped in my rocket I started her up and started the countdown.
she flew 0 -100m/s in just 1.3 seconds she was flying like a rocket past asteroids and many stars.
I'm now living over 12,000,000 kms from earth with a base station the size of new york.
Even tho this game is a grind
I LOVE IT!
