Today I learned how to Beacon

Recommended Posts

I have been playtesting over the weekend right, taking good notes and video. Enjoying myself while exploring the starter planet. I took a Truck with a rover trailer to go out into the vast wilderness and collect some rare resources and explore. I noted what direction I was going and what direction my base was in. But I still got horribly lost. I spent at least 2 hrs driving around trying to find my home because the markers can only be seen so far, and not behind mountains. 

 

This is when I realized you need to place beacons as waypoints.

Yes,  I've built many beacons not understanding what they were for. Apparently, I was never really observant because I found several wondering what they were for after many hours of playing! =)

I was trying to figure out what the beacons were for earlier today lol.  I just attached it to my shuttle and ran away.  Now I finally know what they are for, Thanks!

Of course! Yeah after nearly 2hrs of getting lost I do not leave home without them now. haha.
