Feeling like you know it all after several expeditions around your first base? You haven’t seen anything yet. Ride an hour south or north and find yourself discovering a new set of challenges, alien species and plants to harvest and use for good. Just like on Earth, climate zones and their temperature ranges determine what you see around yourself. Unless you’re visiting a lava planet looking for the exceptional xaenite…
Eat. Drink. Sleep. Everyday activities take on a greatly different level when you are stranded on an unknown planet all on your own. Make sure to find enough food and water while avoiding radiation, poisoning, freezing out, head trauma and other injuries incompatible with life. Eventually you will learn the basics. You will learn how to build a shelter and craft life-saving antidotes, adrenaline shots and med-kits. You’ll also learn that all of it is just the beginning of your journey where smarts and technology once again triumph over the beautifully cold-hearted nature.
You’re a scientist astronaut, not a space marine. Your best friend is the XJB-600 particle-manipulating Multi-Tool. It lets you excavate land, mine its natural resources, cut down trees and weld great things into existence. It is through clever use of technology that you secure your place among the hostile surroundings. Advancing your tech is the only way to unlock new places and ultimately space and your future.
The answer will come to you through good judgment and painful experience. You may be the only human being on the entire planet but you are not alone. Vicious predators will hunt you. Armadillo will smash you if you get too close to its lair. Precious sources of food will run away from you if you are too noisy. In nature it’s the survival of the fittest and be sure even the smaller scavengers will come to get you if they smell you are already bleeding to death or in a bad shape.
Whether you build a dune-buggy, heavy-armored six wheeler or an agile hovercraft, rest assured you can park them inside a garage you’ve built yourself. Construct a base around that garage and put up a solid defensive perimeter too. Add a green-house for steady income of food, workshop for crafting, and a generator room to provide energy for the whole facility. Manage it all remotely from the central control room. Or pack everything on board a massive mobile fortress and go Nomad style. Powerful block-based building made simple with Build Vision.
Keep yourself fit to stay alive. Planet Nomads is a life and death simulator. Your hunger, thirst and stamina levels are not just numbers on the screen. When they fall to critical levels you’re going to feel that. Without stamina you won’t be able to move. You may suffer from negative conditions such as head injury which will blur your vision. Bleeding drains your health and stamina. Radiation sickness wears you down on all fronts. All of this is bad – there’s no place for the weak in the wild.
Why have I crash-landed here? What’s going to happen to me? Will I ever get out of this planet? What should I do now? What are those strange monuments on the horizon? There’s only one way to find out. Be curious, be smart. You are the only person in the whole world who can find answers to these questions. Embark on a journey that will decide your fate – will you die on the ground or find a way to reach the stars?
