The below is the latest design I have been working on. I like the idea of building an enclosure around your base, but had to think of how to allow for shuttle takeoff/landing and player pods landing. So I made launch tubes! 

 

Design: 

  • Launch tubes for craft
  • Energy production outside of base enclosure 
  • Ramp to roof or soon to be 2nd floor
  • Buried Tether System
  • Large enough to drive truck through. 

 

Right about 1:00 I get beaned in the gut, it's about 4mins long. 

 

Enjoy!

It's grown a fair bit since I took this screenshot, currently growing towards a large solar panel! Also, my truck is at the bottom of the map somewhere because it glitched through the surface :P

I wouldn't even bother to post a picture of my base, because frankly, I don't think Astroneer bases look good at all. All they look like is a bunch of ugly nodes strung together, and serve more of a practical purpose for me, since they're certainly not pretty to look at really. This is probably where some improvement could happen in the future looks-wise.

This is where creativiy of the players comes into place ;)

Just placing them on the ground is generally not producing any nice looking bases.

2nd restart.. first base was a mess of course, eventually built an igloo shelter over it. This time trying to get good layout for the main base.

I wanted a good drive-thru type setup where I can roll in with the truck to drop off a bunch of stuff, have all the business platforms front and center but the connecting bits not in the way so I can keep driving through. I find the vehicles terribly unpredictable to attempt driving in reverse.

This actually took a few hours trying to get connections to cooperate in underground tunnel. Second habitat would have been much easier but now they share power and the icons not doubled up.

If I build shelter over this it could be like a tunnel or aircraft hangar..

One crafty thing i did, was if you look careful at the landing pad, the hexangle layed out nodes stretch down under the launch pad each with a large battery on, hidden out of view, then on teh top nodes, ive put solar and wind gens, with additional smaller batteries next to each building. Also i put 6 tethers next to the hex nodes to create a lit area, which you can see from space ; )

2 different views of my base from the center. I've reached the stage where i got tons of lithium and titanium just lying around... ideas on what to do with it?

I'm addicted to making batteries, can't have enough. if I have an overabundance of supplies, i make batteries. batteries for days.
