Concrete Outpost - Tier 4

This is not an automation-ready facility; it's a mini-HUB outpost that provides Concrete for nearby construction projects.

  • 3 Constructors to make Concrete
  • 4 Industrial Storage units
  • You provide the Miner
  • Craft Bench
  • Equipment Workshop
  • M.A.M
  • 4 Personal Storage Boxes
  • Lookout Tower
  • Hyper Tube network-ready with 3 Hyper Tube Entrances
  • Biomass Burner for emergency powering of Hyper Tubes

How To Place:

Before you begin, make sure you've downloaded the blueprint file to your local machine.

  • Put an 8x4 spacer foundation near the center of a Limestone node.
  • Construct a Miner on the node (and foundation), facing the desired direction.
  • Delete the foundation.
  • Stand behind the miner and prepare to place another 8x4 foundation.
    • Make sure the foundation's rotation aligns with the Miner's.
    • Attempt to place the foundation so it sticks out from under the Miner equally to both sides, and from behind.
    • This is easiest to estimate by looking at the green arrows in front of the Miner; they should appear to be a straight line.
    • Ideally once placed, you will have room for walls to surround the back half of the Miner. If not, delete and try again.
  • Snap an 8x1 foundation under the front half of the Miner.
  • Now deconstruct the Miner, the 8x4 foundation, and any walls you constructed.
    • You should only have a single foundation at this point.
  • Construct another 8x1 foundation directly under the first one.
    • It's likely to be mostly underground; that's fine.
  • Deconstruct the top (first) 8x1 foundation, again leaving only one foundation.
  • Move your character aside and save the game, then exit to the main menu.
  • Open the save file in the interactive map.
  • Click the blueprint's icon (the one under the ruler), then click the big dotted box.
    • A file selection dialog box will appear.
  • Find the blueprint file, select and open it, then click OK.
  • In the map view, right-click the foundation you placed.
    • A menu will appear.
  • From the menu, select: Spawn around "Foundation 8m x 1m"
    • A dialog box will appear.
  • Select No from the dialog's bottom dropdown, then click OK.
    • Another dialog box will appear.
  • Don't change anything; click OK.
    • The blueprint will be added on the interactive map facing the correct direction.
  • Download the modified save game file; make sure it's in the same folder as the original save game file.
  • Load the new save game file.
  • Go to the back of the building, and construct a Miner inside, rotating as needed.
  • Connect the Miner and the Splitter in the front of the building with a conveyor.
  • Connect the Miner to the Double Wall Outlet above it with Cable.
  • Go back outside and seal up the building's back with a wall.
  • Connect the outside half of the Double Wall Outlet to your grid.

You should be good to go!
