I have sad news, I started work on a barracks area with small housing and techs... and the world corrupted.. how badly the save I uploaded here is the only save I have left.

Thankfully it was taken when the runway was done, unfortunantly it is 10 techs from the corruption and attempting to remake things results in a repeat. So yeah.

Save is safe, just don't build anything with out taking something down seriously. don't.

Also don't do what I did and stick to one save for the entire work on a base, all my other save files are from before I even started....


The corruption causes the manage techs button to cause an instant crash if you click it. Upon crash the save will be corrupted on trying to load it.

Was able to recover on the 5th attempt do to an autosave... .some how.

Going to upload the most recent save of the base here just in case. The project is likely dead to to some problems starting to pop up the first being what you need to do to even load the game with out the world being glitched to heck and back.


To use the save. put in your C:\Users\[user]\Documents\My Games\TerraTech\76561197994096145\Saves\ area in the campaign folder.

Once there load up save. while in game, hit load game and load up save again. If you do not do this the world will be glitched and there will be strange invisible walls in the base, techs at odd angles, anchor points some times at 45 degree angels or going into space, and upsidedown trees.

So yeah double load the save before playing.

I am wondering if I should make a bug report about that cause I know it is caused by base size.

Truthfully I am surprised it made it this far, was thinking I would start lagging out or having things break half way through the main build. The fact that I got to the side builds before it did as an achievement.

At the least the save might be useful to the devs or someone else as there are some rather interesting breaks in it, from the fact you have to double load the save to not break it, to the simple fact none secured vehicles bounce around and move at random.

Even one of my turrets keeps ending up on top of a tree every few first loads.

Swapped to fancy for some screenshots. These will be the last of this camp on my end. For I have deleted it farewell and to the next one.as the save with it is public.

Manta fighter fueling up for its flight out of this place, the camp is being broken time to move onto somewhere else to build a new and better base with what was learned here.

As the base begins to be taken down, a convoy of trucks leaves teh vehicle bay, who knows where they are going or what they will do.

with everyone prepping to leave the maintence crew gets to work soon they will be pulling down the base by noon there will be nothing left.

The base is taken down, the trees already regrowing where they once could not. Only two techs remain, one last goodbye before leaving the clearing for good. Who knows if another base will be built.

Some final images with out the "story"

Was planing for this image to bhe the last. A quick refuel at the sight of a base now long lost, but it didn't fit.

An image of the manta in its hanger, one of many I have taken as that hanger was a pain.

I am not going to have problems building and armoring things in the future. I think I have over 2k 1x1 GSO armored plates in storage.

Yeah this was a fun ride. I found the limits, found my limits and well next thing I am building will be a makeshift fort in a pillar biome, less large structure more small buildings in a camp like setting designed to be a scrap yard.

Will the theming it around my maintenance bots with the idea being the follow up on one of the groups. With my idea to do smaller "story" builds around several of the groups of techs I built here.

Oh and a funny glitch that happened while doing the take down.

20200623051049_1.jpg

A build attacked the camp and destroyed the anchor on this turret, yet the turret control is the anchor... It literally couldn't anchor again and was stuck like that.

30 minutes before post.

Already starting on the next one which will be a mixture of BF and HE, as legion isn't a thing yet.

Mostly as I didn't realize I went from my posts requiring moderation to not, if I knew that I would have done it in real time.
