Dev's Antara and Astronicus built half of a base on Mars between 11:30 am CST and 3pm CST. First the goal was to grow food. Antara strove to print out a biology hab while, Astronicus used forward thinking while working on getting power to the hab. In order to gain the materials to print these two habs, Antara downloaded all of the blueprints available and then ran around and mined materials. Astronicus used a more eloquent way of downloading the blueprints, by downloading them as he needed each one. Eventually, she was able to print out a Rexy bot which made gathering the materials for the Habitat much easier. Rex, like other dogs, can dig into the ground and mine minerals for you. You can control him from inside the Whiteley habitat, by typing in "guest' to the computer when prompted, then "rex". This keeps the player nice and safe as they mine for necessary minerals. In no time, the base had expanded from two buildings to four, to 5 and several Rex bots. Then the two dev's ran out of food from their care package and everything went awry. Many blockades existed as the two ran out of food, battery power, and materials to keep themselves alive. The Dev's resided to their fate determined to fix the bugs that got them in the mess that they were in.
Some bugs that were discovered at the time: - Dust storms make everything dusty too quickly. - Whiteley Hab does not stabilize after it has fallen over. - Stuff in the printer falls into the geometry. - Some game object such as the solar array do not deflate and carry properly.
