Subnautica

Just bought this game and enjoying it so far. Any tips on where the best to build the base - or it won't matter? Any tips for new player in general?

    best base is a spot you think is pretty or atmospheric. if you want to powergame then put it near one of those heat geysers for geothermal power later on. but really it's about having a room with the perfect view where you put your bed and desk

      Pretty much this. My favourite spot is near the kelp forests because they look beautiful and there's a thermal vent in a cave nearby from memory. Once you get the seamoth, travelling anywhere doesn't take too long so you don't need to worry too much about the "best spot" for resources.

          Is that the one with the giant shroom in the middle before you dip down to the lava caverns? Easily my favourite area for building comfiest base.

    I'll just warn you to pay attention for possible clipping, as in a literal bug, when piloting the submarine. It's very rare, to the point you may never actually see it, but it can happen and you don't wanna get fucked out of progress by that.

      I forgot to mention, build a chair to sit in to attempt to correct it. Might also be related to grow beds, might also be alleviated or greatly exasperated by jumping. It's a long-running thing that to my knowledge wasn't fixed. Again, possible you might never run into it.

        looking around more, limit the number of plants regardless of what kind of plants to 3 when having plants inside the submarine. Might eliminate the chance of suddenly plummeting to your death.

      It's tense until you actually understand how pathetic and weak and easily defeated and retarded all the enemies are and then the game completely loses its charm, not just because the danger feeling is gone, but also because you understand nothing aggressive underwater even behaves like a wild animal, they literally just have "aggro player" flags where they beeline for you.

      If the animals at least had realistic animal behaviour I could've treated it like an ecology sim and it would've been so much more interesting.

      No, but it's not as good as the first. Still pretty decent but the biggest chages are a smaller map, the seatruck replacing the seamoth, and the story being a lot more in your face.

      below zero is way more story focused and it's full of woke shit, everyone is gay or lesbian and the character you play as is a moron even tho your sister is white, avoid it.

      It will give you that Subnautica fix but at the high price of having to tolerate unrelatable empowered womyn everywhere and lacking in many things which made the original amazing, devs actually tried to make it "less scary" and much more lineal. The main story is kinda shit too at later sections and loses it's grip. The ending was clearly rushed and unfinished as well with stories that never interconnect and can leave a player wondering what the fuck to do in order to progress, no shame in using a guide. Endgame It's just that baddly designed.

        Maybe it's a random comparison but it sounds like the Axiom Verge 2 of Subnautica. Just so pointlessly and mysteriously a sequel that's the opposite of what everyone wanted, and seemingly going way the fuck out of its way to achieve it.

      It's really bad. Subnautica is one of my favorite recent games and below zero is just bad. I just wanted it to be over, while after subnautica I wanted it to keep going.
      -Map is tiny with extremely tiny uncreative biomes.
      -You get stuck with worse clunky vehicles
      -No weapons at all. No stasis gun or vehicle mounted weapons.
      -When people talk about woke shit they mean this game. Literally all but one PDA you read about relationships involve lesbians or gays. The SINGLE entry about a hetero relationship literally ends with a prayer to Allah about falafels.
      -Main character is now a woman that never shuts up. If they had to appeal to this games nonexistent female demographic they should have just made a male and female selectable character. But keep them fucking silent.
      -Stupid fucking land segments. They're boring and purely a time sink.

            It's a lot less that and that people who latched onto the first game REE'd at the female voiced protag, and the general concept of having your sister/the AI talk to you. From playing it when it was first available, it felt like they had a direction but felt that they needed to change it to please the internet, which resulted in a lot of problems.

    Great game.
    You can't build a base on the spaceship wreck (my idea at the time was to fix the rad leak and build a base there ala Robinson.

    In the end I had multiple bases. One near the shipwreck, one near the main alien structure, one mobile and one at the entrance of the deepest zone of the game.
    Have fun and avoid spoiler at all cost.
    Just know that there is indeed a tech to recharge batteries, I got seriously unlucky with drops.

    It does matter because the map is huge and traveling takes a lot of time, so building it in an inconvenient place will make you avoid your base. Also you don't want to build it next to leviathans. If you are still in the beginning I'd just build it next to spawn because that's the center of the map so it's close to everything.
