I’m enamored with this right now.
Finally got a rover 3. Stuck 2 drills on the front, 3 trailers, a bunch organics, generators and batteries, dug and dug and dug and dug and died.
And no beacons setup so I could find where I started.
So I got the crappy leftover tractor from the surface, 2 organics, a small generator, and propensity to micromanage and drove into a hole.
Rolled the tractor around for about an hour, digging by hand. Found the path from the first rover, and promptly died.
Next rescue attempt will be a tractor with a drill, and some beacons to find my way back.
Or I might just build another big rover and never speak of the original again.
