Ok, I reorganised my base and it fits together properly now. Although for some reason the battery recharger I built seems to float about half a foot in front of the wall I built it on, and it’s annoying me. :)
As it was again night while I was doing this, I floated the Seamoth about 20 meters away and floodlit the whole scene. But now I have a cozy little base, just need some materials to start building goodies.
Incidentally it took me about 45 minutes to gather all the materials for another Seamoth (this is number 3). Then I headed off into the unknown looking for diamond. I went a little further afield and actually found some, including another large piece of wreckage about 200 m down which is always exciting. I got chased out of there by a couple of pointy-headed shark things that got my sub down to 30 hull, but I was able to escape and repair it. That is, until it was suddenly snatched away by something very large. Another freakin’ Reaper! Naturally it squashed it like a egg, and I had a 1.5 km swim back to base. Gah, I’m going back to my little motorised DPV! At least out there I found another errant piece of Cyclops hull. Stuff you don’t have seems to be as rare as rocking horse shit, until you’ve built it, and then every second thing you find is another piece of the formerly incredibly rare item.
Back at base, I died again, this time trying to catch some food where I ended up amidst a couple of those poison-seeding dugong things. Some nights I just know it’s not meant to be.
