orbital research ?


Recommended Posts

How Am I suppose to get orbital research point ?

The virtual planetarium produces them but already requires orbital research points ...

And the Orbital microlab is a bit too big to be in a solo spacefarer (at least if I need to supply power, food and oxygen)

The only way I see is to too back and forth with the rocket without access to food (removing the ladder on the right) till I have 5 points

I had a rocket with a Orbital microlab, I went into space, l flew a few tiles, and came back, and got nothing.

You need a dupe with the research skill to operate it on board as well as a bit of plastic.

Ah, plastic! Of course it needs a resource. Thanks.

IMHO 1 oil geyser should be in the first map + 1 sugar/co2 rocket pre-installed and ready to go for everyone :roll:

@sakura_sk I made it ! I made it !

Took only 50 hours in this save and 300 hours or so of total DLC time...I launched a rocket ! Dont know what happens now, will my pilot die :confused::confused::confused:

You don't need a hamster wheel for power in rockets anymore, you can just plonk a battery module in the rocket, then put a socket in the rocket which will supply power. That will save you 3 tiles.

Does not seem work with the CO2 engine. I tried with a battery-stage and outlet. Zero power available after liftoff.

Hamster-wheel, research station, battery and container for the plastic do fit nicely into a small nosecone though. If you have a fast researcher, you do not even need to have the dupe pee themselves.

Yeah, not all engines have a power generator. I believe the ones that don't require oxidizer produce no power, so you don't get any free power from using CO2, Steam or Radbolt engines. A sugar engine would produce, though.

(EDIT: the Steam engine does produce power, my bad)

Engines usually do say how much power they generate (only after building):

The battery module has a power port though. Can't you fill it with power on the ground? I think its has enough storage to last for a cycle of research.

No idea. I did not try that as it was easier to just go back to the hamster wheel.

Yes the power module should allow you to charge it frm the ground. I saw people use it as an extra battery for their base. It`s needed for research with the rockets that don`t produce power. I think only 2 engnes produce 0: CO2 and radbolt.
