For new players of The Planet Crafter, this is a simple set of tips that will help any newbie or even veteran player starting anew!
Essentially this creates a little outpost building that you can quickly get inside to recover your oxygen. Furthermore, you can collect nearby iron and build storage inside so that you can gather materials from an area, store em in your outpost, and then haul them back easy peesy. This basically cheeses the oxygen game mechanic so you never have to worry about oxygen ever again once you set out a net of Outposts
Once you near a wreckage, your goal is to gather anything that isn’t sealed inside a storage box pronto! In the prologue I made the mistake of not picking up said seeds on the battleship and when I tried going back later for them, they had all despawned, leaving me with about 5 different food seeds, and 7 different plant seeds for my run. Always collect your free objects as fast as possible. Couple this with tip #2 and store free objects within your little outpost bases scattered across the map so you can haul it back to main base when you’re ready to return!
The tier 2 ore extractors are the only ones that can extract things like Osmium, Sulfur, Iridium, etc.
Now, this should come as no surprise, but Growers and the Water Collector are your best friends and should definitely take priority in building.
Typically you can get by with 2 growers (One doing Beans, and the other doing whatever else) However, this involves you really micromanaging your food, so if you want to just grow a lot of food without any worries, go with 4 growers strictly for food. You want about 10 more growers after that… why? (4 for Eggplants, 4 for Squash, 2 for the shrooms) You will need these plants for hi-tech stuff later on.
Water is pretty easy once you get a water collector, however I recommend 2x to start with and when you can get water from lakes, you’ll immediately want to replace your 2 water collectors with lake water collectors. Your water struggles will be more than managed. Then as soon as you can, build the water purifier, and you will never really need to carry water around ever again, because you can drink straight from any lake.
