Can you elaborate on the current thinking on how base building is supposed to work?
….With this we’ve been rethinking how the Pioneer will work to make her more flexible rather than just spitting out a pre-fabricated outpost we want her to be more of a mobile fabrication facility that would be near your building site. With a Pioneer you’ll be able build these structures without having to ship in the component parts as long as you have a supply of raw materials. You don’t need a Pioneer to build a homestead but if you want to build a decent settlement, or you want to build something relatively quickly as opposed to having to fly in prefabricated components from major landing zones you will want to have a Pioneer, or have a friend or someone that is willing to lend their services to you.
We’re very excited about the gameplay that all of this will provide and can’t wait to see what kind of player settlements sprout up over the huge amount of land area the game has. We will need iCache in and working well before we will see this in the game, so expect to see some updates on this later next year.
Maybe Pioneer owners may have glossed over this little nugget of info but it looks like the Pioneer will most likely get to fabricate pieces to build those awesome new homestead concepts they've shown off in ISC last month. The Pioneer was originally intended to manufacture the standard shoebox outpost buildings we see today. Since the new homestead concepts look nothing like a pre-fabbed outposs produced by the Pioneer I wondered if they were just static assets placed there by an artist, like a space station. But now it looks like we'll get to manufacture homesteads with the Pioneer.
This has to be good news for Orgs that want to build a base that actually looks like a base and not a bunch of inter-linked shoebox outposts, which would look incredibly stupid as a base. This is a pretty rad and welcomed change for Pioneer owners IMO.
