I am not sure I understand the progression here. I understand this is a hard server, and I only played some solo game until I got a CV and explored a few planets.
It seems with the extra damage mobs and turrets do, it isn’t possible for me to do a POI on the Homeworld until I get shields on my HV, a Rocket Launcher, and Epic Armor at minimum. Yet, to get those things requires resources I can only get by doing POIs.
I understand the starter world, scavenge iron, silicon, and copper, until an SV with a warp drive, but after that I am having a hell of a time.
Now people on here are very charitable, and I might be able to progress given the charity, but I really want to know what the expected progression path is without charity. After all, I might not be so lucky to have nice people to help me out next season.
What is it that I am expected to do after arriving on the homeworld, building a base, and scavenging resources up to about lvl 12 and being able to build a SV or HV with miniguns a tier 1?
What are the next steps?
