To the center of Terran we go

Recommended Posts

I hope this is the right place to post my little adventure. If not lemme know so I don't make the same mistake in the future.

So I decided I needed to cross going to the center of terran off my bucket list. I decided to use a truck instead of tether lines. I just dug down in a circular pattern big enough for the truck and I to make our way down.

I brought with me: 12 resin,  a Truck with storage, full of storage. 2 aluminium (for a trade plat) 2 copper (for a fuel platform) 2 lvl 1 wind vanes, 1 lvl generator, 4 compound and a ton of organic for fuel and a handful of energy.  Also picked up quite a lot of coal on the way down.  I just started tossing organic into the hole next to my truck in an attempt to power myself all the way to the center. I felt like I was in a gumball machine with all the loose organic swimming around me. Not near enough organic to make it down. I probably went thru 30 organic or so. The australium kept hanging up my items as well. once I ran out of power it got really tedious and i killed myself and respawned at base. I then threw everything I could find down the gaping maw. I then slowly tethered my way all the way down to the bottom. Little did I know at the time I was only halfway there.  took prob a half hour or so just to quickly drop down ledge to ledge and hang tethers. (the circular patterns I used to dig created slight shelves which was great for making time, but which also hung up a lot of my items) I knew I hit the center when I could no longer tell which way was up. at that point everything got a lot more difficult due to i couldn't stay on the ground for long and i took damage just dropping a few feet. Got a full base built down there. I never got one breeze, no wind at all. No new power at all sadly down there. I was going to smooth and square the base but without a renewable supply of power I was doomed to run out eventually and lost interest. Not really that exciting but after 4 or 5 hours invested I thought I should at least share my hard work. Hope you find it interesting.  Not really worth it in my opinion but i can check this one off the list. 361420_20170401123614_1.thumb.png.17ca374f32a1cf3fad00f7088da2e065.png

Thanks for sharing, very interesting reading. Any thoughts on bringing power down there? About how many tethers do you estimate you needed? 

I probably went through 8 packs? i didnt count. I only tethered until I caught back up to my vehicle and then just used that instead of tethers. as far as bringing power. i don't know. I didn't get any wind at all. Maybe if you carved out a huge cavern it would produce some wind? i didn't try solar panels. Maybe if your hole down was wide enough and straight enough it would allow some photons to make it down there?  I mean if you wanted to sustain a base I guess u could always die and respawn and throw power items down the hole and then follow afterwards. I have heard rumors of a geothermal generator coming out  sometime in an update. Maybe that will address this problem. It got tedious and I can't really see me messing with that deep base again.

Wow, impressive. Was it hard trying to dig with the truck in your way?

Truck and the organic around it wasn't too bad. I was usually positioned underneath it most of the time and it just followed me down.
