Surviving on Mars:
Written by GrendelPrime.

After a few hours, I have collected some information that would have been nice 
to know when I started.

-=You Survived Landing on Mars, Now What?
Congratulations, you didn't die yet, but the day is far from over. The voice 
in your helmet does a good job of pointing out the essentials, but glosses over 
a few points that turn out to be fairly important.

Your inventory screen is used to manage your inventory, your vehicle's inventory, 
the Hab, even crates. There is not a prompt to tell you this, but stand facing 
the item and press "I" to see the contents and manage them. As =diFRacto= pointed 
out, you may also transfer from a vehicle by pressing "I" while looking at another
vehicle, crate, or building.

When building structures around your Hab, pay careful attention to placement; if 
they are too far from a power source, or are not facing a power port, you may not
be able to energize them. 

The game saves your progress when you enter the Hab, should you die from Corrosive 
gasses/Meteor strike/Electrical discharge/Radiation poisoning/Asphixiation/Lava 
immolation/Starvation or Dehydration, you may return to the Hab, minus your 
inventory, but hopefully a little wiser for the experience. 

When visibility is impaired, the scan "T" can help give you a better look at the 
surrounding terrain similar the flashlight "F", but in all directions.

Tutorial Walkthrough:
Written by Old Oldboy.

Ive have seen that some players have been having problems at certain points during the 
game and have got stuck. This is mainly due to problems interacting with the UI. This 
guide is a step by step walkthrough for the tutorial mission that should help if you 
get stuck. Its a bit spoilery just so you know.

* Wait for the suit to reboot, once this has happened hit the scanner key to scan the 
  area. Default: T for scanner. 
* You will be directed to head forward towards the JMC X18 vehicle. 
* Use movement keys to move and mouse to look. Default: W, A, S and D for 
* As you move towards the vehicle your HUD will highlight in red where meteor strikes 
  are likely to happen. You need to avoid these as a direct strike will deplete your 
  health considerably! 
* If you hit camera toggle you will move to a third person view. 
  Default: TAB for Camera Toggle. 
* Optionally, hit the jump key to leap down the cliff. Default: Spacebar 
* Walk up to the JMC X18. Once you get close, press the use key to enter the vehicle.
  (Default: Use key is E) 
* NOTE the solar panels are at the back of the vehicle! 
* Hit the scanner key to scan again to find out where the nearest Hab is. 
* Drive off to the left and follow the canyon system. It will eventually lead you 
  to a large open plan. 
* There will be some electrified dust devils. These are not as dangerous as the 
  meteors so a few zaps will not be an issue. However, they do drain your power. 
* Drive up to the Hab and hit the vehicle exit button to exit the JMC X18. 
  Default: Q for vehicle exit 
* Once you get in the had there will be a power cut and you will be instructed to 
  go outside and look at the two solar panels (on your left as you leave the Hab).  
* Walk up to each and left click to take a picture. 
* You then have to go back to the Hab and collect the repair rifle. 
* IMPORTANT! Nanotech Repair Rifle. it will take a few seconds before you can pick 
  up the rifle (its on the left of the crafting bench). When you pick it up it will 
  appear in your hands and you will be able to see parts of the buildings / vehicles 
  that need repair. If you get in a vehicle you put it away. If you want to equip it 
  again, look at the bottom of the screen to see which quick key its assigned to. 
  Default: Quick keys are keys [1-4] and the rifle is usually assigned to [1]. 
* Outside the Hab on your right as you leave you will see two large crates. Walk up 
  to them and hit E to pick up some O2 canisters and Repair Rifle ammo. DONT pick
  up all of one thing. O2 is precious at this stage of the game so I would recommend 
  picking up 7 canisters and 3 clips of repair ammo. 
* IMPORTANT! Inventory. You can open your inventory using the inventory key. You 
  should be able to drag the O2 to the quick key slot 2. This means as you are walking 
  about and get low on O2 hitting the 2 key will give you extra O2 from your inventory.
  This will use up the canister so dont go crazy using it. 
  (Default: Inventory Key is assigned to I). 
* Making sure you have the Repair Rifle equipped (normally the 1 key) walk over to 
  the first solar panel and walk round to where you can see the damage icon. Use the 
  mouse to fire the rifle. If the damage bar doesnt move up you are not close enough 
  so will have to move round the panel to get closer. 
* Go back to the Hab and then head over to the garage. There will be two sections you 
  will have to repair. 
* Once you have done that head over to the JMC X18 and drive it into the Garage. 
* IMPORTANT! Recharging Vehicles. Once you have parked your JMC X18 in the garage 
  you will see its battery and O2 levels will be restored to full. Dont forget to 
  do this before you undertake any long trips else you will get stranded. 
* IMPORTANT! Map. Hit the Esc key and it will bring up a map. Notice the blue and 
  yellow rings on the map. This shows you your effective range based on power and 
  O2. These will be different if you are in your suit vs if you are in your vehicle. 
* You will be told to look for two items to repair your hab. Head north first and 
  try to keep the navigation point directly ahead of you. The circuit board is in a 
  cave which can be hard to spot if you dont know what you are looking for. 
* The cave entrance is about 200 metres from the final objective. It has sparking 
  debris outside it to the left and a crate to the right. 
* Enter the cave and toggle on the flashlight with the light key. 
  Default: Light key is assigned to F. 
* When you go in it will give you warning that you are getting close to a corrosive 
  gas zone. Dont worry its in a cave to your right but dont try and get the loot 
  in the crate as the hazard is deadly in your current suit which needs to be upgraded 
  first before you can find out whats hidden in it. 
  *Spoiler* Its going to be useful so dont forget its there! 
* IMPORTANT! Headlamps. You can hit the light key when you are in your JMC X18 to
  turn the lights on your vehicle. This is going to be very helpful when it starts
  to get dark. 
* Make you way through the first cave avoiding the lava and move into the second 
  cave slowly. There is a drop into a lava pit so you will need to jump down to 
  the rover. If you fall in there is a path up to the rover. Just take your time 
  and look around. Walk up to the rover and the use key to salvage the circuit board. 
  Default: Use key is assigned to E. 
* Make your way back the way you came and drive up to the hab. Now might be a good 
  time to recharge the JMC X18. 
* Head back into the Hab and hit the inventory key to open the inventory. Drag the 
  circuit board into the Hab inventory. * It will disappear but dont worry you are 
  half way to getting the Hab powered back up. 
* Now drive south to the next waypoint. There is a natural chasm which you want to 
  drive down. Park up once the waypoint in on your left-hand side and take a look 
  about. You will see there are a series of platforms heading off east. Make sure 
  you get a good run up and jump across. Head round to your right and after a few 
  more jumps you can find the crash satellite. Hold the use key to salvage the part. 
* Drive back to the Hab and hit the inventory key. Drag and drop the salvage into 
  the Habs inventory as previously done. 
* You are then told that the colony power level is less than expected. 
* You need to open the Colony Planner Visualiser (CPV) and connect the second solar 
  panel to the power grid. Click on the power socket icon on the bottom left of the 
  screen. Connect the two couplings together. 
* IMPORTANT! Power. You will need to connect all new buildings to the power grid 
  before you are able to use them. 
* Drive the JMC X18 into the garage 
* Exit via the small door and interact with the Vehicle Status Terminal via the 
  use key. 
* Click Tech Tree > Research Now > Upgrade Now 
* You now have a digger attachment. Click the Red X Box in the top right of the 
  screen to exit the terminal. 
* Head back to the hab. 
* You have now completed the Tutorial and will see a mission summary screen 
* Go to the Trade Post and select one of five possible mission. 
* IMPORTANT! O2 If you take the GET SOME AIR mission then you will be able to 
  make O2 canisters. This is the mission Id go for.

Initial Missions Walkthrough:
Written by Old Oldboy.

Walkthrough for the first five missions unlocked after you complete the tutorial.

-=Get Some Air
* Go to the CPV and place plans for an O2 generator 
* In the CPV you an use Q and E to rotate your building. 
* Id place the O2 generator next to a solar panel. Put it in close as you will 
  start to run out of space sooner than you think. 
* You need to collect 5 Raw Copper, 5 Raw Iron and 5 Raw Zinc. 
* Good news is that they are all in a single resource vein close to the Hab. 
* Follow the waypoint marker and head to the right of the canyon. 
* Park the JCB X18 with its back wheels in the resource vein. 
* Click V to enter digging mode. 
* You can drop resources but I would drive to the O2 generator and offload the 
  resource you have and drive back for a second dig. 
* Click V to exit dig. 
* Drive back to the 3D printer and use I to open the inventory. You can use the 
  green arrow to transfer over all the resources that you have and are required 
  to build the O2 Generator.

  Small O2 Canister at the crafting bench.

-=Optional but important
* You will now have enough Research Points and Credits to upgrade your digger with 
  Corrosive Gas protection. This is an extremely useful upgrade to have for future 
  mission because there is a heap of corrosive gas out there and avoiding 
  it will take a lot of power / health.

* +10 Cargo < USEFUL

-=Better than the Alternative

* If you head towards where you found the circuit board and drive around the 
  large wreckage you can go through a small gap and head towards the waypoint.

  Emergency Hydration Pouch at the crafting bench.
