I am STILL finding new things that I’ve never seen before. I think it was on my 3rd or 4th playthrough I found “Sanctuary Beta” and looked it up. Turns out there are 4 of these sites scattered in really strange places.
I do things differently. This time for example, I’m not using the Cyclops at all. I had to build it for the shield, but it’s just sitting parked.
I’m also not hoarding minerals (something inside me wants a full locker of EVERYTHING on typical playthroughs).
I think there is a mod that ups the minerals required considerably. I might try that next.
