    Thanks for the tips. Yes, I think slow levelling was a mistake considering the lack of prey. It's funny, it reminds me of Empyrion in the early days, where starving was a real possibility...well, either that or I didn't know what I was doing. I've gotten so used to food being plentiful, that I generally don't farm any more, which is a shame. So, if I do get a luck food sprout them I'm good. I will start some Fibre Plants going though - once I expand the plots a little.

    Yes, I'll switch to normal level progression and then get the XP I need through farming and the like. I'm feeling quite resource-rich from a component perspective as I've gotten some good loot - had to leave a Small Generator behind as my current HV can't lift it. Might expand and upgrade the HV, might go SV... we shall see.

    Very interesting Scenario :)

    Scoob.

    Once you leave that planet, there's a lot to explore in the solar system. You'll find some default planets and moons, and a lot of custom ones too. It's very much an exploration focused scenario. Still a huge work in progress. I hope you enjoy it! :D

    I love the Dead Planet start. It took me several starts...I believe this is now my 5th:rolleyes:.. to get some kind of system working how to manage the first things first Program;).
    You are not alone with finding out things the hard way by wasting valuable resources on not working Solar Panels. The leveling situation and the food situation is dire but at one point in game you find a rather strange solution for both.
    Btw., @ravien_ff if the food you find in certain places is a RANDOM thing ... can you please try to remove certain type of food to actually let us find usable types? I mean Space Lemons, Firefront (?) Farn, Green tubers and something else...to give their places to REAL Vegetables or Fruits!

    I don't want to spoil the Fun on the Dead Planet Start for others so I keep clear of posting to many hints BUT as I was given the Level hint here - Put a POI to private, remove all stuff you like to have, revert it back to PUBLIC and start dismantling it - that gives you XP.

    Oh and here is my latest HV created on the Dead Planet learning by doing:D

    The emergency rations and food bars you find are custom loot, but I can't control the random loot. :(

    Well, I thought that much...:mad:..I searched the fridges of 7 POI's only to find the above named, unusable ..things...and not one piece of fruit or Vegetable... that makes survival achievable.
    Yeah, yeah, I know there IS one other, very rare to find, source for sprouts...;)

    Oh, nice...the surface of the dirt within the Ruin behaves like Rock-bed:mad:
    I cant remove it because it is as if SOLID!

    I swear, I'll never fix all the POIs. Years later there will still be 1 or 2. :D :D :D

    Yup those have always been there. :D

    Try relogging. Let me know if that fixes it.

    Yes, I will relog as the whole Planet surface is now as if only 30cm of dust lays on top and its solid rock bed:eek:

    Nothing changed. the whole surface is now like rock bed. I cant remove the dirt within the buildings cellar so all fridges there are enclosed in solid surface rock with no way to dig them free - stop playing until solved or reverted back.:mad::mad:

    You got me wrong on the Pentaxid crystal..I could not pick it up...another in the background "worked" fine but not the pictured one that why I used the drill to show that it was non existent.
    So I cleaned caches, verified, logged in again - no change, Planet seems to have changed back to pre-Voxel state as you don't see a rock bed if going to god mode and take a dive beneath the surface which it had recently.(godmode beneath surface)

    Ok... the place where those ruins are IS actual ROCK BED therefore not usable for a Player to get to much needed Food.

    Posted a suggestion to remove those "Plants" from the game until they find some use again. Like the Varen Root for the quest.
    Those are blocking the real stuff from random spawning. Hope the Devs hear me...:rolleyes:

    I’m on my second restart on that on my server. It is crazy tough in some ways but a welcome new twist. I’ve not found any game breaking bugs as yet so I’m keeping at it.

    I just noticed that Spanj has just done a fresh start on the Dead planet too - watching it now. The jammy git has already found far better loot than me early-game. He got two small Generators (I built my single one) he got Fuel Tanks (I built mine) he even got one of the Small BA Constructors - I can't even unlock one yet! Lol.

    I found one small Generator sometime after I'd built mine, but had to leave it behind due to its weight - marked the spot, will go back for it soon.

    I've done ok with component parts though, just need to level up! Still, I've not died yet...is this dead is dead or do I respawn in the Cryo Facility if I die?

    Scoob.

    Just ran into a CoQ.

    Game is set to EXP branch and using the latest patch (2651).
    I selected the Snowy Dwarf planet and then typed my own seed "23032019"
    The CoQ came as I pressed "Set".
    Console shows "ArgumentOutOfRangeException - Index out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection."

    This is the first time I've used the Scenario and only just downloaded it then restarted the game.

    I stopped my 'ocean planet start' after first Zirax drone attack on my initial underground base because it showed me that my "incognito low key start " dont work anymore - or it looks like that...

    Yesterday evening I restarted P.Eden on 'Dead planet', and it was interesting in a very good way (and still is). Didn't know anything so there was a couple of hiccups until I connected the dots about 'what is what' and what to do/get first, and how not to waste time when you exit from the Cryo base door :)
    I also learned the hard truth about 'no solar power' just like Scoob - and only after I fixed my first base and collected 5-6 solar panels with their batteries, and installed them all :D

    There is a more than enough loot (food not so much but I have enough not to die of hunger), and in the end I have been very lucky with my first exploration route, down to the south - where I reached 'dead London' and found 3 crashed SVs along the way! Starter zone around Cryo station was really bad in my seed, snowy, not a single tree anywhere around for fuel or veggie for hot drink or even rocks...
    Biggest help for players are free cores, that saves time and remove frustration (in general personal lockers are very good solution for this type of game start)! I really like that I have to find & collect components in cargo boxes, much more than whole devices and I did found several complete small generators with fuel & O2 tanks. I return to base with great loot in components and now I will upgrade HV to real engines & hovers, and then to relocate to the 'big city' :cool:

    BTW, after you settle down a little bit so you won't die from nature/radiation/hunger your biggest challenge is balancing cargo act, what to take and where to put and can your hover-thruster powered HV get you out of crater you drive in or over the next hill - because you MUST fill that junker it to the top :rolleyes:

    My "Junker" before our first trip in to unknown deep south! (but that journey had a happy end full of loot with a whole dead city at the end of the radioactive sunless rainbow :p). I fixed this base and added lots of solar panels & batteries, and then I removed them :D
    That is my starter zone in the background, not very nice...
