Far better mini-go on NMS tonight - no faffing around, no unclear missions, no trip to that sentinel-infested frozen hellhole!
Went to a different system, grabbed the Convergence Cube I was after. Then also got a pie of Dioxite for the Frostwort plants - these will supply frost crystals which will finally allow me to start glassing up the base and make it real nice, plus allowing me to add a biodome.
Got the heat capacitor blueprint, which was the other half of the circuit board and wouldn’t you know it? Involves a pile of Solanium! Good job I nabbed 500 of it when I saw it. I’m also told you can grow it, which’ll be much easier.
Went back to the base and did a serious expansion - large room, 4 small hydroponic bays. Plus a couple of curving corridors and for the hell of it I’ve colour coded the lights for a couple of sections so I know which is which.
Looking good. Now, I just have to investigate the Poly-Fibre build for the circuit build to unlock the tech terminal…
