    Cool Your vehicle designs

    OK so redesigning my car (in-game) and trying to think of a better design. What have you (players) come up with? Feel free to show off ;-) Just looking for inspiration.

    I have a few tips.

    *Use a bio-mass generator, instead of batteries.
    *Place a wrench on the front and back. EDIT: (I tried this last night and it did not work.
    I guess the wrench will pull an object towards itself, but will
    not pull itself towards an object.)
    *Use solar lights, and set one to be a beacon
    *Plus for a different look you could use 3 or 5 wheels.

    I've created 3 vehicles so far:

    1. Small nimble car with minimum parts to get around - short range scout
    2. Truck with a stasis pod on the flatbed back and lots of compact storage modules - long distance survival, exploration and resource gathering
    3. The Titan (see my post) - my first attempt at a mobile base with everything currently available equipped (although it can't currently move despite having 25 wheels due to the torque issue)


    The big issue for me right now is getting more than 2 mins out from my main base in vehicles 1 and 2 without losing them down a hole but the devs are aware of the issues and we just need to wait and see what changes they make as we move forward.

    I think PN has great potential and i'm really happy with the early game concept, it works really well. Can't wait for more.

    Can you spot what is unique about this ugly little vehicle? (Hint: compass)

    Is was not easy to do, I feel it was a epic win!

    I would tell you how I did it, but I think everyone will enjoy the challenge of figuring out how to do it.

    My simple 6 wheel design with uranium generator to power the wheels and the stasis chamber on the back, also has several compact storage containers along side the generator as well as 2 solar beacons on the front which one is active on the compass so i don't loose it.
