Finding buried shuttle

Anyone any suggestions for finding a shuttle that glitched itself in to a mountain ?ūüėÄ

 

I traveled to Atrox in a large shuttle with some high enough value stuff on board (RTG, oxygenator and a medium storage of items iirc) . This was my 2nd trip. On the first one I'd set up an atmospheric condensor and piled some items to collect on the next trip . It was only when I was looking for a landing spot that I realised I never left a beacon. So I chanced a spot I thought it might be and tried to walk the shuttle in the right direction. Somehow I managed to lose my Hydrazene canisters off the thruster and then as I was going over a mountain managed to drop the shuttle in to the mountain (glitched in) and I died of suffocation. I respawned in it and got the elastic effect when I tried to get out where I hung down on the tether then was shot out the top of the mountain. this gave me the air in the backpack only so after a few deaths while trying to locate the shuttle with frantic digging I respawned back at my base on Sylva. So I mounted a rescue mission and found the beacon showing my backpack when I died after falling off the side of the mountain . So I've a good idea im in the right 2 or 3 mountains and have spent hours trying to find it without luck. Im assuming its a case of give up or just keep digging and theres no way to locate it?

Cheers.

Oh, and on my recovery mission when I was walking my medium shuttle to the area I hoped to find my large one, I got shot at by the plant that does that and my 3 canisters of hydrazene on the thruster were blown up, so Im stranded again

Wow, that sounds like you got yourself into quite an unplanned adventure. Enjoy it while it lasts :) . In my gameplay everything went quite according to plan and I had little trouble setting everything up on Atrox, produce RTGs, unlock all gateways with RTGs and... game over nothing left to do.

As for your shuttle there isn't much you can do sadly. If it fell through the ground it usually falls downt to the next cave level - so exploring there in a organized fashion would be the first thing i'd try. But on Atrox there are some micro cavities where it could potentially get stuck mid rock. In that case however there is a minor chance it's not deep enough so you should still see it's marker from orbit. But yeah finding it's exact position would be mostly a lost cause. Maybe you could try to glitch the camera through the terrain to see where it might be but I know no reliable way to do that.

Cheers. Yeah, no sign of the marker. But tbh , this isnt the first similar incident. On my very first trip in to space, I clicked a landing site on calidor I think it was, and the shuttle landed inside a mountain. That time I stuck with trying to dig it out straight away in between dying and managed to dig to a point where my tether attached and guided me. Thats the only reason im digging now, otherwise i would probably have assumed it glitched and disappeared, which might still be possible. if i was 100% i was digging in the right mountain rather than the right range i might be closer.¬†¬†Anyway, im in day 2 of the dig now¬†ūüėāūüė©

Well holy crap. It appears that i died while I came out to reply to this and must have died nearer to my large shuttle than my medium one I came on for the recovery mission because ive respawned in the large shuttle¬†ūüėĮ¬†and I'm not too far from where I was digging because I can see my tethers and my medium shuttle . The dig continues.¬†¬†¬†

my issue now is trying to spawn in my medium shuttle instead of the large one, is there  a way to do this?

Update. Because the bottom of the shuttle is just about sticking down in to a cave, I can drop in to it. I then managed to get a tether high enough up on the wall that its tethered from the shuttle so I now have oxygen. 

 

My problem now is that the terrain tool is basic and cant drill out any of the plentiful resources around me or tunnel up to the surface because the material around¬†me is too hard.ūüė©
