Surviving Mars Gameplay | Episode 1 | The Red Planet
Hi everyone, Agent here, and in today's video we're going to be playing some Surviving Mars. It will be my very first let's play video on the channel and I hope you guys enjoy so without any further ado let's get into this. So I paused the game and I've actually played just a tutorial so far. Let's see. The first thing I need to focus on is getting water and I can see one, two areas that might have water so let's use our probes and that was quite unfortunate really. I was hoping to get some water so let's see we need to queue some scans I think we'll do this section first because we know in this area there's a possibility of water let's do that and hopefully this start won't end our little colony okay so let's quickly jump into this area have a good look so this is what we're looking at at the moment we've got some concrete over here it's high-grade concrete and this side very low so I think we'll be aiming more on the lines of down here we have a vista and we have an anomaly so it doesn't seem too bad I think what we'll do is touch down in this area but first let's get some research going I pretty much picked everything at random so I don't know who my sponsor is I think it's the USA and I'm not sure what the rest is so let's see we've got terraforming biotic and hygroscopic vaporators, okay so this is an upgrade for the vaporators and we might actually need to get some of those if we're running low on water we can increase our cargo let's see we've got explorer and we've got some adapter probes and we've got Mars crowdfunding so we can receive once-off one million fundings but anyway let's just go with research with adapted probes and I think we'll just wait with that for now okay so we've got a sector scanned or being scanned in the process and that is terraforming maybe we'll get into that I'm not sure yet so let's see we've got our rocket and It's ready to land and this is the sector that's not scanned yet so let's just move it to the edge maybe move it up just a little bit but we won't want to be in the way of the vista so let's drop it on this side it's out the way no issues there so that will be the rocket landing and I think we can go let's get this rocket down uh we scanned the sector and we found some concrete and metals and two anomalies found so let's see these anomalies are way down here yeah we are fully aware of those I'm gonna go back up why does it I think I think we might need to get a vaporator as soon as possible so let's just clear these first things first our drones and let's get this anomaly scanned and our drones should immediately start collecting resources around us which I assume will be right here what's this, metals so I guess what we can do for now is just drop where is storage right here this is the universal depot and I think we'll drop it right there and let's get this going probably pause here and there just to keep things in check I have actually never heard the radio before okay we've got buildings not working obviously we also need power and we can put down a Stirling generator right about there and we'll also need some cables like so I'm pretty sure that was a meteor and we need some more materials so down here somewhere should be more resources I'm not sure yet okay so we can get 200 million funding get two drone hub prefabs or get four moisture vaporator prefabs wow okay so I'm thinking that might be the way to go so we've got that let's see where is our prefabs we've got the fuel refinery for our rocket and let's keep it to the side somewhere unexplored sector uneven terrain ah we've got an issue with uneven terrain over there we don't want any buildings near the concrete so let's just drop it here at the top like so and I would like to get that vaporator there we go produces water from the atmosphere production load when placed near other vaporators no production during dust storms okay so we don't need to worry about all of that let's get this vaporator down I haven't decided where yet we'll need to make sure we place everything so they don't bugger each other up we also need cables did I close that I'll probably close a few things because controls vary from game to game quite a bit so let's see both buildings require power how do we want to wire these I guess one of each should do let's do it like that I'm trying to keep everything as clean as possible also with lowest maintenance cost that boy has already run out of power and we also need an extractor I'm still trying to get the hang of the game there's a few things that can go over my head a bit let's see we need to figure out which one was the high grade this is the very low grade this is the high grade one so let's build it right over here like to get the maximum well that wasn't close at all okay so we need to focus on storage must be connected to water okay so this boy is not connected okay so no not a switch, not that, power cable we'll do that connection we also need pipes here's the pipe okay that's connected now this fellow down here also needs to be connected so we'll go to our power section get some more cables drag and drop that's in the way that's straight up well it doesn't seem like things are going bad at the moment we need some storage let's go to specific storage and let's go with concrete I think we'll drop it just in range So let's drop one there we also need dumping sites. Let's do the dumping site here at the bottom. So technically. . .
I do, I don't want these things to be in the way though I guess we can put one there and nothing's happening which is worrisome. Okay we've got some things idle here and there let's look at research first. We can harvest resources faster which is good and nothing else let's see. We can increase this as well that might be good. We've got a sector to scanned we'll dismiss that. Okay, we've got that. And the issue right here is that we don't have any drones in the area.
So let's move that over there, let's see if we can find anything else to scan. So there's the valuable resources. Oh, these are the valuable Oh, these are the rare metals. Okay, so let's see. I don't see any other anomalies at the moment so our little explorer needs to be a little bit more patient but what we can do is find some resources to gather, if remember correctly. We need to click this. Gather all and drop it over there. Okay, let's get this going, fairly simple. I would just like to get the basic things set up. I haven't decided how I'll do these videos yet.
But we'll see. So apparently, they're clearing some storage. Well yes, obviously. We will fix that pretty soon. Apparently, this one is not necessary. Uh, okay. I can see the issue. That over there is not enough, so what we want to do...
Yes, because we're running short on electricity. Interesting, so I think. The radio is slightly off-putting. Let's see heirloom, you have received a
strange package with a little touch as you read the litter your eyes full of tears. Let's see TOY reveals super fungus breakthrough tech. PAC reveals superior cables and superior pipes breakthrough tech that sounds important. PAX reveals plasma rocket breakthrough tech. JFD nano refinement breakthrough oh my goodness, you know what I have no idea what any of these will give me super fungus. It's either good or bad. I assume if it's good it's food if it's bad it's it's terrible because our whole colony will have athlete's foot but the one thing that does seem important is probably this one superior cables and superior pipes. Which I assume the gears unlock with a mechanical click you know that you would find you know what you would find inside and yet you are grateful for this last gesture of love and goodwill effects anyway enough of that we were busy setting up power and since we are we've got a two percent elevation boost even though we are pretty low. Let's see if we move
around a bit, it stays pretty much the same. Okay, so this area has been scanned. I think what we'll do is we'll drop these right here let's do three for now. We need some cables and I'm pretty sure all we need to do is. We'll take it from here. Let's take it from here.
Like so that should be fine this building is not being built because it's out of reach and that is also not being built. Oh, I see. That's going to be unfortunate what we need to do but why though. Something is quite odd.
Let's set this to priority. This way everything will... work a bit better. There's a heavy load. We are fully aware of that. Fuel refinery doesn't have electricity which makes sense but we need... things to work a bit faster. So let's grab these bad boys and
I'm still not sure as to why not a lot has happened. It seems like they're building. What we can do as well. Let's put down some solar panels but I think we need to wait just a little bit. Let's have a look at our research and we should have a breakthrough. Instant and free power cable construction, power cables do not suffer from power faults. Perfect, I think we put that on top and instant
these are perfect. I think that one should be first that one be second, third, fourth and fifth. That's five upgrades off the bat. We're not worried about water just yet. I'm trying to see how clean this setup actually is. Can i get in closer? Because it seems like we've got unnecessary cables. Apparently, I can't select Oh, we've got a ton of metals. Okay, this section seems to be full. I think.
That's going to be a dome area. I don't see any concrete. Oh, everything is going for turbines. I also do not see anything related to salvage. That I can salvage. Power cables apparently I can't, I can but I don't know how. Anyway let's collect more resources. Collect all let's just drop them here for now. I need to basically make more storage. Let's grab some specific storage and it seems we have a huge amount of metals and I think we'll do a storage section down here for now.
This seems to be going pretty well. We've got our fuel going. Water is slightly irrelevant at the moment. So our power at night with our little sterling and our wind turbines are currently pushing out 25.3 power demand 18. we don't have any stored power. What I think is we should probably add a little bit more power so what we'll do is we'll do solar power as well let's do three of these and obviously, they'll switch off at night. Let's get more cables Take it past so that should give us enough electricity.
Our concrete is coming along nicely. Excess metals are being stored. Perfect. Eventually when things are running a little bit over the top. Okay, we should actually focus on bloody scanning but I keep forgetting. Okay, it seems like we're moving along fairly well. That boy is not connected for some reason. Well, there we go. Drones are doing their job. Everyone's doing their job. Perfect, let's move this a little bit
lower so we don't have heavy loads. We need to keep an eye on our storage and so forth. Well, it's nighttime now. We're running back on seven. It should be fine. We need to expand a little bit later on. Perfect. We found new tech.
Tech has been revealed on the research screen. Low-G high rise and dozer rover. Let's have a look. Oh, so this boy does the terraforming. Okay, it's probably not a bad thing to get. We've got high rise this is the apartments and our research is coming along fairly slow. I'm just waiting for these solar panels to be finished. I've got a heavy load somewhere.
Okay, never mind. Okay, it doesn't seem like things are being pushed out properly. Let's see what is the range on this? It's fairly good range. Covering all the necessary things. I'm waiting for the scanning to happen down here. I should probably build a sensor tower.
Let's keep it close. Uh, let's um drop it down here. This will just help with the scanning I tend to forget these towers quite often.
I know what they're... Ah, Okay. I know what they're supposed to do. Let's see we've got a scan down here and we found absolutely nothing. Let's see do we have any more resources laying about. What is this? Nothing that's just rocks. Nothing special. Okay, so all of this is going well. We've got our fuel ready. We've got concrete going. We've got energy and I think what we need to do
is add one more. How many special resources do we have? Still have quite a bit. Things are going fairly smoothly. Let's add one more turbine. Solar, we can skip that. We are producing enough. I would also like to get a power accumulator. I would like to keep this on the side as well. Let's see.
Let's drop this one down here. Extend the cables. We're moving further and further away from from where we should be but I just want to keep things as clean as possible. Found an anomaly. Let's see if we found... Sector scanned. Okay, so what we can do is... I do not see these resources
apparently. Concrete and metals. Okay, well, it's literally right there. Gather that. The concrete's still fine.
Dumping sites still fine. Battery is charging up fairly quickly as it should. The scanning should be going smoothly and I think we're doing fairly well, to be honest So I would like to start storing some water and I've noticed that these pipes carry both fuel water and everything else as literally no worry of splitting everything up. That will produce fuel on its own and apparently it will bypass fuel and drop clean water in there which makes a lot of sense. That's built. That's a really odd split.
There are a few things happening around me that I'm not sure why though but anyway, that connected on its own. Resupply. We are able to resupply I think. Yes. Do we need anything at the moment? Probably? Maybe? Things seem to go fairly well at the moment. Metals are building up really quick and my aim. Whoa! Okay, well, that's not nice. The aim will be to get a dome down as soon as possible. We also have some
new unlocks. Okay, we've got some more metals like we don't have enough hopefully this will go away soon so we can get our little. How many did you load up? Nothing yet. Oh, you loaded up everything. Okay, so what i want to do with this guy is collect the rest of these and drop them right here.
And it seems our water tower is coming on slowly. You're producing how much? Water production is one. Consumption is one so basically, this won't even do much. Okay, so what we can do is we can drop another another one of these vaporators and all we need to do is basically make sure they're not too close, but let's drop this one here at the top. This one will slowly give us some water and what we can do is we can drop some electric cables over here or at least on this side. What is that? I think I selected the wrong thing, to be honest, I need this
Let's wait for that to come back first. Let's see we've got a new milestone. Not too bothered with that. Superior cables fantastic We've got these greenhouse Mars this slowly. Elon Musk you could warm mars up over time with
greenhouse gases interesting okay so it requires quite a bit of materials and it burns fuel to increase the temperature of Mars using greenhouse gases okay fairly simple I guess. We found new anomalies. Let's take a look at research. Okay, so we've scanned most of that let's add these sectors because we've got the boost and then slowly come down this way and I'm pretty sure no, I haven't found any any water yet which is strange.
you're done go scan that anomaly. That one's collecting resources and I'm pretty sure we've got the ball rolling. What is it? Is it daytime or nighttime? Let's see it's night time and we're producing 10 energy. Perfect. Let's get this drone over here and I'm pretty sure that
What is it called again? Where is the little machine? I'm looking for a vaporater that's the word. Right here. Let's place it there and quickly get this going. If I can get that breakthrough tech over there or new unlock things should go fairly well and we need to connect that to some power. We should have quite a bit of that
Let's take it over there and straight to that connection and let's take in another pipe. It should be here in life support. And let's see we can take a pipe straight down here. Okay, well, I think we're slowly building a decent-sized base that will basically just give a slow drip towards so we actually have some water when we need to build the dome we've got enough energy at nighttime we should be running it at what I think one but one less.
Oh, it consumes five so we might need to increase our battery is full we'll need to manage all the small things. Sorry, I thought the guy would keep talking. Drones work faster on landscaping projects that would be perfect if we combine that with the dozers and I'm pretty sure I can create all kinds of interesting things with these from clearing areas to leveling to also making ramps. Okay, so we've got a few things lined up. This will...
this is, put in a dome. Oh and wait an outdome building that produces food. Okay, so it requires people and I think we are doing well enough, to be honest I think I'll cut the video short right there because I haven't decided how I'm going to do this yet. Thank you for watching and see in the next video.
