where do you guys find the salvage modules to pay for the freighter updates? I haven’t found a single one yet…
You get it as a random reward for Frigate missions.
You can also get them from crashed freighters. Make sure you get all 7 (6? For some reason I can’t remember) containers. I seem to always find the salvage module in the last one container I open. At least thats been the case for me so far. I have salvaged 6 of them and got 4 from frigate missions.
Got mine through frigate mission. I didnt know where to go at all for these. But where they came from makes perfect sense. Frigate salvage from frigate missions. Just before I traded the other freighter in for this one too.
Concerning this particular picture, I think I figured it out…
The actual frigate is stuck inside the boxy ship. I know because I saw one that was stuck inside one only halfways. And reexamining your picture, you can definitely see a merchant frigates upper and lower arcs sticking out of the box.
Yeah. I had the same thought. My question is would it still show the 2 merged in the second pic?
Yes, absolutely. There is no new scene created for the close-in view, it merely repositions the camera in the current scene and overlays some UI. So any objects that were there before will still be around.
Oh boy, oh boy, look what cool thing I happened upon!
Part of the front is even burried in a natural cave:
I think I’m going to build a base here…
Can I come round for a drop of lemon tea in your lemon drop home?
Sure, though currently it’s still a bit claustrophobic. Was busy putting down some wires most of the time, which turns out to be even more of a pain under water. You can’t recharge your stuff while you’re holding a wire!
Also, it seems I took these pictures during dawn or dusk… The ocean is usually red in daylight and dark blue at night. How fitting that it was on this planet that I found the abandoned building lore about the crimson ocean that awakes every couple of eons to eat everything. Not creepy at all…
Use camera mode when building, it helps. I am not even sure if weather or being underwater affects the player when using the camera mode for building. If it does, be at the surface (or inside) when activating it.
I believe the camera mode renders you immune to environmental effects while in camera mode.
( Not sure about when in multiplayer though, as time does not pause while using the general camera & therefore may be the same for the construction camera)
Typically, I stand indoors near an open exit anyway just so if I get distracted, the environment doesn’t get me.
Yeah, I figured that, but only after a while…
Okay So I had this question posted some time back in the forum. Here’s how i solved my crisis:
The verbiage says you can get it from crashed freighters. I raided a dozen or so but no luck there.
They do come in frigate missions, but that’s to few and far between.
Fastest Way is to raid a Freighter group, but only the freighters themselves. If you attack the frigates or the Free floating Cargo Pods, each attack nets a negative standing with the system faction. But you can raid an entire freighter with only one faction standing loss; and easily make up to 10 Modules per freighter. Just buy them gifts afterwards to make up for it.
All we need now is the ability to change time of day in build cam for when we’re working on our bases colour scheme The nights are long on ‘Oich 55/37’
Soooo… wouldn’t you want it to look good at night rather than by day?
I’m too lazy to rig up power for lighting so it’s never gonna look good at night
