You escape pod just crash landed and you must figure out how to survive and defend yourself against all the creatures lurking in the shadows. Hopefully you can stay alive long enough to try and escape or rule this world.

great game
hours fly by very quickly when i play this game
keep up the excellent work

how do i find new chunks of rubber?
i know how to get tar but not the rubber chunks
is it purely a ship wreckage/treasure chest thing?

in the current build the queued research item icons with the progress bars over them are invisible
this makes it hard to know when to queue up the next research item

Rubber is made from tar. You can research it then make it. You can also find it in scrap piles or chests that are scattered throughout your world.

Glad to be in the group! The game is awesome and i can't wait for the next update!
I have some questions if i may.
1. Will there be an end to the game? Like a final boss or objective to complete?
2. With the wiring, will we see more complex mechanisms like Gates or Relays? (They may already be in there, i haven't been able to progress cause of the bugs)
3. How will multiplayer work? How many people can play on one map? Will the core game remain the same for it, or will there be specific game modes and such?
4. Will the monsters be able to mess with your base/lights/equiptment if your materials or defenses are not up to snuff?
5. Can I build a ship or something to get me off this planet? lol

Again, thanks for your hard work in squashing the bugs and getting this game playable for everyone as quick as possible. Even when the updates are teeny little bug fixes or aren't immediatley noticable, it is very appreciated to see a good game such as this get the love and attention it deserves in such a timely fashion. You all rock. Keep up the good work.

Hi and welcome to the group! :)

to the questions:

1. Yes there will be an end added in the 3rd or 4th content patch. What it is still needs to be decided, we have a couple options.

2. we will have switches added soon, and they will trigger doors, trap doors, devices etc. in a future content patch after release we will add a remote device that you can use to hook up switches to that you can trigger from far off.

3. Multiplayer will be hosted on your local PC for people to join with a server running that keeps track of everything. There will be a mode or 3 :) one being get the other guy's combinator, and simple survival/death match

4. Yes, that is planned

5. that would be a end game thing we will decide on :) most likely with that scenario it will be to get back up to your colony ship to re-activate / save it and get it going on the mission it was supposed to have hundreds of years ago
