So I’m at the point where I’ve solved two planets so far, and honestly just having a ball with this.
@Gendal is right in that learning the flatten (ctrl key) tool is one of the most important skills for delving deep in the planets. Once you get good at it, you can make a pretty fun surf and slide to wherever you need to go underground =) I’m at the point now where I’ve completed all my research and am working on planetary puzzles, and I’m still having a hoot.
Without too much spoilery, here are some things I missed on my first play through that you may find interesting:
First: plant the seeds you find underground! They lead to research pods. The pods will usually explode improperly due to a bug, but if you do something like the picture, you can get a lot of research that way. Also, there are different biomes the deeper you go in the planet. I don’t remember that from 2016 and it was a pleasant surprise!
The only real bug that is driving me crazy is the bug where when you climb into your rover, you may or may not be able to control it. Then you have to jump out, jump in, jump out, jump in until you regain control. Argh!
One thing I miss from even the .9 version is the storms. I haven’t seen a single storm yet. Maybe they were removed? That is a shame because the game could use a bit more adversity.
Anyways if anyone wants to plan a get together online for multiplayer I would be totally in! At least we could quickly knock out some achievements =) (Although I hear the multiplayer is still laggy? not sure about version 1.04 yet)
