After a lot of work, i think i got my base perfectlt layed out, i might build walls aroudn the perimter too, to be safe

Messed around with the solar panel you can find and got it hooked up into my power system.

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!

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.
