I was able to get both construct heads unlocked (on my first and so-far only run) by creating a restore point in the Anomaly (with the Ignition milestone selected), flying up and plugging-in the Seed of Hope, then immediately (like, as soon as I regained control before the popups even finished-- don’t know if timing is actually a factor, but was being paranoid, lol) reloading the restore point, going back, and plugging-in the Atlantid Reactor.
Didn’t stick around long enough to test the dialog options on both, but then hopped over to my main save and confirmed both options are unlocked for my account in Expedition Rewards
We discovered last night, since some of us were bugged out and already put a mind in to the construct before it was patched, that your last choice will be the decision reflected in your other save files on the Space Anomaly. So whichever decision you’d like to be your favoured one, make sure it’s your last. Making a choice on a new expedition save seems to cancel out the previous choice.
I have a Crimson talking to me even though I’m #TEAMEDLANTWARD so I think I’ll have to run through a third time myself XD
I have to agree with others here…what’s up with the way Polo put this poor construct together? What kind of life can they have? We get full legs and arms and this poor creature gets scissorhands and spider legs…I am suspicious. I hope Nada and Polo don’t have a parting of the ways moment.
If you give the right responses during the purge, you can still save him, that’s actually what I did on my first playthrough, I didn’t find out he can die until later
Doing it this way, you get the unique conversation in which he says you and he are in the same place, but you can’t see each other, a callback to that one situation where two players discovered there was no multiplayer at launch
I also did not know that he could die. And I have played through that sequence enough to wish for a “Been there, Done that” option in the game. Next time I go through that sequence I’ll have to look for some place where I didn’t consider the different responses, I thought I tried most major paths.
