resources falling through ground

Recommended Posts

mined/processed resources and thethers are falling thorugh the ground into a cave below

I just started a new base on Novus and have run into an issue where some of my mined/processed resources are falling through the ground.  At first I was getting exicited finding materials in a cave then there were more when I went back to the cave and got even more exctied.....then my tether line went black and I had to book it to the surface(thankfully I wasn't that deep). One tether must have fallen through the ground since I had to replace one though I didn't see it in the cave. I then realized I didn't seem to have a increased quantity of the resources in question, counted the reosurces, went down, found more "free" materials then came up to the base to see I had less materials than when I left the base mostly lining up with what I foudn on the cave. 

The cave is very highly likely to be under the base if I try to vidauly the path but it is a decent distance below the base. 

Do I need to move my base somewhere else?

I tried to move my base elsewhere.  It didn't seem to make a difference in regards to losing items through the ground.  I even had a medium storage I was using with some amonium on it dissapear.  I'm going to try buiding platforms and medium stoarges on it as thats the biggest I can build right now to see if that helps. I don't see any other options other than to avoid this planet.  Attached is a pic of insdie a cave below(assumed) the base.

I've made platforms and storage units and in general it got better but I still had an entire platfrom with storage units disappear through the ground.  I dug straight down with the alignment mod and I found the storage units with resources but no platform.  For now I anm just going to ignore this planet unless anyone has any suggestions.  When I am underground I sometimes see debris falling sort of like what I imagine a light earthquake might look like if you are underground.  Let me know if there is anything I can do to help troubleshoot.
