How to build in astroneer


Comment by Erin Klym

all right this is one last minute I welcome back to another episode of Astra near so I've been asked over and over and over again to put up a base build guide and this is highly subjective I don't know how you want to build your base I know how I like to build my base and I'm gonna show you how I build my base I like to take it nice and slow and why do I like to do that well because I played Astra near for over 700 hours so you know for me I like to stretch the game out as much as humanly possible go nice and slow there's no point for me to rush all the way down to the bottom to get a stirone iam and build up a bunch of research bytes and that is one way to do it that's like a fast build if you want to do a fast build here is my normal base building guide or what I consider my no rush base building guide I hope you enjoy when you launched and as your landing make sure you take a look around on the descent you want to try to identify any items that might be helpful to you in getting your base going once your land jump out quickly unpack and set up your base at this point in time I like to run around and just get an idea and understanding of what is available close to my base resource wise and possibly any kind of downed debris that it might be usable I'm also looking for research samples and research pods first order of business is to get two canisters so once you've identified where the resin is at make sure you dig up two pieces of resin when you collect it enough for one immediately make a canister and then continue to keep gathering resin make your second canister and then go look for some compound you want at least two pieces of compound to make a bunch of tether bundles unless there's a cave directly next to your base start a hole and punch down you will eventually come into a cave system before building any base piece your goal is to get at least 500 bites as you were digging down you should have gathered enough soil to be able to build any kind of bridge into the cave system that you open up into at this point I only have one goal generating enough bytes to be able to unlock the large platform be the large platform be is large enough for a base piece and has two additional side areas to hold storage I don't like building my base until I can get the large platform be unlocked so my first and only focus in the beginning of the game is to gather enough research to be able to unlock the large platform be try to stay in the caves until you can unlock at least the large platform be but I also like to focus on trying to get enough bytes to unlock the smelting furnace and the soil centrifuge you can collect bytes by destroying the popcorn plants research samples are grown on these rock formations remember why you're down here looking for research to identify and locate any resources that might be needed for the rest of your base build I tend to like to tether up to them just so that I know that they're there I also put research pods on my tether lines so that I can find them for later use once you have that 500 bytes spin it on the large platform be the next item you should focus on unlocking is this melting furnace once you have the additional 250 bytes go ahead and unlock it before you leave the cave make sure you gather at least one piece of laterite I typically won't leave the cave system until I have all three of those items unlocked so if I didn't find enough bytes on the first level you just start digging down to the second level in a relatively short amount of time you should have enough bytes to unlock not only the large platform B but the smelting furnace and the soil centrifuge once you've done that it's time to go back up to the surface and start building your base gather up enough resin to create your first large platform be enough compound to make a generator and some organic to fuel it or a little while the generator is going to be your only source of power the hab does provide a limited amount of power to you but you're gonna find that you're gonna need some more just make sure to turn it off when you don't need it undo your first platform B and then the next thing you're going to build is the smelting furnace yeah there arpan uh free sources to build it once you've started your smelting furnace you want to go and start looking for more resources to be able to build your next large platform by the time you get back the smelting furnace should be completed unpack it move the platform off to the side start working on your second platform while your second platform is working arrange the furnace to however you'd like it and plug it in move your generator over to where the furnace is located and start processing that Illume the reason why you're moved generator over is because you want the generator feeding this melting furnace first and the printer second we really want this aluminum up and running and completed hopefully before the platform gets done in the meantime while you're waiting if you had picked up any pop coral seeds be sure to make yourself a little pop coral farm just build yourself a ramp up and out and plant your pop corals right by this time you're smelting furnace should be completed your platform should be completed the next thing you want to build is your soil centrifuge we're gonna need to compound once you have all the resources go ahead and build your soil centrifuge if you need to refuel your small generator on the packet and position it where you'd like now that you have the soil centrifuge getting resources should be a lot easier I'm gonna run a round of resin the soil centrifuge takes an enormous amount of power so make sure you have some additional power running on it now what I'd like to do next is look for a piece of copper I like working in the caves early on and typically it's usually dark so we need to find a piece of copper we either gonna need to find malachite or hopefully we find some sort of down ship that will provide us some copper once the soil centrifuge has completed I like to build my first research chamber go ahead and get a platform started and gather any other resources that you might need to build a research chamber remember we're still looking for that copper at this point and we never stop collecting bytes any bytes that you come across stop and make sure you pick them up all right I've identified some malachite in the distance it's not that far but let me go back and get oxygen and since it is a little bit of a run we're gonna tether out to it luckily a good portion of this malachite is not in hard rock so we should have an easy enough time collecting one piece of malachite once you have your malachite collected head back to the smelter be sure to start processing the malachite if you have some sort of power problem make sure you gather organic so that you can get the generator running the platform should be built let's go ahead and print out our research chamber once the copper is completed build yourself a light this is not I'm gonna help you in the caves but also in the dark once the research chamber is completed unpack it and position it where you'd like right now yo

okay so today's video we're going to go over terraforming basics so this is with your terrain tool i guess you could call it but it's terraforming which is what we're gonna do so as you can see we're gonna cycle through the icon so here there's an arrow pointing down arrow pointing up and a kind of flat surface there so the air pointing down is to dig arrow pointing up is to build up and it will go in the direction the arrow is pointing so you just drag it and it will continue to go that way the flat one is kind of like a grading tool so it'll actually match the surface in which it's currently at so here we have a flat we have a small hole here and covered up by just going across and we'll continue that starting point or that starting angle we have it like this we have kind of an upward angle it will make a ramp well that's how these three basic tools work now as you can tell here i've got five dots underneath my digging arrow the more dots there are the harder the surface is so we don't have any hard surfaces here until we get deep in the caves but just so you know as you get deeper there will be more dots which will indicate it being a harder surface on my gun here is by pulling out your backpack and pulling out your terrain tool your gun is a soil canister now the soil canister as you can see you can put it anywhere you want i usually have mine on my gun but it has a bill level so right now i'm about a third of the way full and as you can see on my ring here there's a blue portion it's about a third maybe a quarter of the way full that matches that canister so you don't really have to watch the canister the ring around your arrow will actually show how full that canister is and that's that indicates how much you can kind of output you could say or pull out of the ground and as i go it will disappear the x obviously means there's nothing left i can do with that oh you'll notice here as i fill it up or just about full almost if you watch the back of my train tool it'll actually start spitting out flames once it's full so you're not paying attention if it's hard to see kind of like right here if you're pretty far in the ground you'll see the back of my train tool without flames that means it's full so you can see there it's it's spitting it out spitting out flames means my canister there is full so i can't hold any more soil so if you happen to do that you're trying to be mindful of that obviously we have a lot of ground to use to dig you are mindful that you want to fill up a canister or put it in your soil refuge that way you're not wasting soil you can do that but that's our basics of the terrain tool so if you ever need to build anything whether it's ramps over a big hole or anything i mainly use it for making roadways or ramps if this was a giant hole and i need to get across i can go ahead and build myself a ramp like that there is a evil plant or a hostile plant you can always just dig them up with the dig tool and if you just need to lift yourself up off the ground very easy to do very simple just by digging upward well those are the basics of your terrain tool and how to use it i'll be doing further videos on attachments you can see there on the side there i've got a couple attachments but we'll go over that later this is just our basics of the terrain tool thanks for watching you guys are awesome if you want to like and subscribe that would be great and appreciated hopefully we'll get some more action here videos and possibly some other videos some other games that you guys suggest here further down the line thanks so much you guys have an awesome


Thanks Isaac your participation is very much appreciated
