Well, I have started a new game when 154 came out and I was lucky enough to spawn under the trees, so I had much more research boxes than one can have being spawned on flatlands.
In a couple of hours I've researched things like rover, truck, habitat, shuttle, big storage, wide and narrow mod, even medium solar-panel was there. I still don't have inhibitor, terrain analyzer, medium wind vane, spaceship, crane, etc.
I suggested I should visit other planets and after some tries I found a huge forest on Exotic near its pole. I've managed to build a base there, constructed a truck with storage and 1-seat and other truck with 2 storage, so I could bring home 15 research boxes in one trip. There are boxes of all types, tons of them, everywhere - it's a very dense forest.
I made about 20-30 trips, bringing home different boxes of all sizes and shapes, 15 in one trip. The only thing I researched within hundreds of boxes on Exotic was small storage. It was very helpful, of course, because now I can properly store dozens of filters, compound nuggets and power cells. I trade all aluminium and copper nuggets I've 'researched' for lithium or titanium just because it saves space. I wish I had dynamite researched to blow all that redundant scrap I don't even need, but I haven't.
When I first watched this new awesome trailer for patch 153 I was eager to try these new features out, but seems I can't afford it. New research system, even after it got patched, makes me feel discouraged, flummoxed. I don't want to play it anymore because it punishes me, burying me under the burden of all these air filters. I can't wear that much, I don't need these amounts even in reserve. I want to be able to find 1 compound nugget under my feet when I'm in need and craft it with my backpack. Ironically, it's not an option, cause I haven't researched it.
