This tutorial picks up where the early game tutorial ends – right after acquisition of the Seamoth. Early game was mostly focused on close-range exploration, getting basic tools built and basic survival needs met.
Mid-game, enabled by the use of an underwater vehicle, will involve deeper exploration, longer missions away from home, further automation of survival needs, acquisition of more advanced blueprints, and development of the story line.
Visit the Floating Island
Your first mission of mid-game is to drive your Seamoth out to the Floating Island and acquire the blueprints and plant samples needed to begin farming your own food in your Seabase.
Build a Food Farm
Lay the groundwork for your exploration efforts by setting up a renewable food and H2O source at your Seabase.
Fabricate a Bioreactor
A Bioreactor adds a cheap source of electrical power to your Seabase.
Build an Aquatic Farm
Aquatic farms are key to game progression as they allow you to farm out unlimited amounts of aquatic plants from a single seed or sample.
